Most Talented Redskin Team You Have Seen?

What team is the most talented, not neccessarily results, but talented team you have seen as a Redskins fan? I have been a fan since '81 and my top 3 are the '82 team that lost to the Raiders in the Super Bowl, the '00 team that completely crapped the bed and went 8-8 and this year's team. All teams have holes (the Pats and Panthers certainly did last year) and that's where coaching and talent make up the gap.. If things come together, it could be special here this year or next.. Thoughts?

The team that Rypien QB'd.

You had the posse & a D that was down right evil!

Wilbur Marshall was a head hunter

The '91 team had 8 pro bowlers I think, and probably could have had a few more.

I still can't believe that team was left off ESPN's top 25 teams of the last 25 years. What a crime.

Agreed. 1991. (Though the team that lost to the Raiders had a great year.)

If I recall, Wilbur Marshall didn't even make the pro-bowl. Yeah, ESPN was lame there. Where is the respect?

The '83 team went 14-2. The two losses were by a combined 2 points.

31-30 to Dallas, and 48-47 to Green Bay.

Of course, we all know what happened against the Raiders. How did they ever lose that game especially considering how great the Skins were that season?

The 91 team was the best overall team ever fielded. They were almost unbeatable.

the best redskins teams i ever saw were the 91 team,which could have easily went 16-0 had they really wanted to,the 83 team they had the huge brain fart in the super bowl to the raiders,and most of you guys can't remember this team but the 72 team that lose to the dolphins in the superbowl was damn good.kilmer,curt knight,larry brown,charley taylor,jack pardee,richie petibone,pat fisher,chris hanburger,and diron talbert played their asses off all year long.not to mention jerry smith(rip) and mike bass.the 82 team that beat the dolphins was pretty good too.if the 1999 team would have had a coach that had guts they would have won a few more games.

I think that the 83 team that lost to the Raiders in terms of on paper talent was not only the best team in Redskins history but maybe NFL History more so than the 1984 49ers who went 15-1. In my over 20 years of watching NFL football, I just don't remember a team that was so explosive and loaded and deep on both the offensive and defensive and special teams sides of the ball. It's too bad they totally came undone in SB 18.

But I think the official title of the Skins best team ever goes to the 91 team. In the end they got it done and the 83 team didn't. On paper talent alone doesn't get it done.

I think you could argue the 91 team was one of the best ever for any team.

I watched a special on the NFL network on them and I forgot how dominating they were. Didnt they shut out the other team for like 6 or 8 weeks? That either half the season, or nearly half went by without the other team even scoring on them.

A couple of stats about that 1983 team that I don't think have been mentioned here and are truly jaw dropping stats-first of all they scored well over 500 points. It might still be a record, unless the Rams broke it recently. And the other amazing stat is a +43 turnover ratio. Think about that. +43! That's just sick

My bad, I "forgot" about the '91 team.. I don't consider Rypien supremely talented, he was just amazing that year so that's why I ignored them.. That was a great team though..
