Oops. By the way I'm referring to 87 SB team which is on NFL Network right now. I didn't even notice the thread was about 91.

When you talk about the "unbeatable" teams of the last 25 years, it's the 85 Bears, the 07 Patriots, the 84 and 94 49ers, the 96 Packers, and the 91 Redskins. It was almost bizarre how quickly they fell, because the others in that group all faded off into obscurity. This team was picking in the top five two years later.
You are correct. The salary cap got introduced, Cooke had to put away his wallet, and the team had to be gutted. What a tragedy.

Luckily we made the most of it by picking Heath Shuler.

Plus the '91 team was older and full of vets, not set up well for a transition period.

Re: 1991 Redskins are on NFL network right NOW!!!

the 1991 skins have to be ranked as a top 5 team of ALL TIME. wasn't that the year they set the single season scoring record, as well?

No, that was the '83 team.

Amazingly they only have the '91 team ranked 14th out of all the SB winners. That always boggles my mind. That team was flat out dominant and they still hold the postseason record for point differential.

Re: 1991 Redskins are on NFL network right NOW!!!

That loss to the Eagles in the final regular season game still chaps my ass to this day. It would have been nice to sweep the Cowboys that year too. Of course if that had happened then the 72 Dolphins would have taken a back seat a long time ago.

Re: 1991 Redskins are on NFL network right NOW!!!

Yeah. I think the rest of the league views teh 91 team as a bunch of vets who got on the same page and captured magic for a year. They weren't seen as a "dynasty" like the 49'ers or Steelers.

I don't think we played against the Vikings in 91 and your thinking about 87 when DW was QB. It came down to the last play and old DG knocked away the game winning TD just as a vike was catching the ball. That was also a strike year and we played 3 or 4 games with the a bunch of walk on's. I think we also beat Dallas with those guys and dallas had like 9 starters who played through the strike.

I would have to remove myself for the wp after making a comment like that. All credibility has been lost.

In other news - they showed the 87 season at 8:00 right before the 91 season. Needless to say, tv was good last night.

Re: 1991 Redskins are on NFL network right NOW!!!

Yeah, they are satisfying the Redskins fans thirst for Skins editions America's game before July 5th. I think that NFLN is hoping will not vote for our team's America's Game episodes for that day. They are trying to prevent us from doing what we did when we got Sellars to the Pro Bowl.

I will put money on New England Patriots SB win after 9/11 getting voted as most popular nation wide.
