Jacoby. I'm surprised Mark May has no votes, he's in my top 3 probably, behind Jacoby and Lachey. Tough to count Samuels out though. We've always been solid at this position.

Mark May played the majority of his career at RG, not Tackle. He did not have the quick enough feet to be a very good pass rush protector, so they protected him at guard. He did eventually play some OT.

No way I can comment on Turk Edwards. His career ended before I was born.

Since a team needs two OTs, the two best on this list are Joe Jacoby and Jim Lachey - - in whichever order you might prefer.

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

I'd go with Jacoby first but I have to say Samuels is a close second.

Samuels has basically played at a very high level, for years, on some losing teams with a revolving door of offensive lineman around him and not one Pro-Bowl caliber quarterback, though Campbell is close.

I also think Jacoby played during an era when defensive lineman/ends and outside linebackers were greater. You had your Lawrence Taylors, Reggie Whites and many, many more. All of them didn't line up across from big Jake, but you get my point.

Lachey, I'd say he's third on my list.

Definitely Turk Edwards. I remember how he used to dominate DE's like they were schoolgirls. He went 8 seasons without giving up a sack. (I'm not 100% on that stat, but it sounds about right). He also had a clubhand and ate sardine sandwiches before every game so his breath would intimidate the D-Line. I remember how opposing defenses would give up on rushing him and would just send everyone to the other side of the line. He was a stud.
