Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

Wow. This is definitely the toughest one yet. I think Lachey might be the most talented but his body of work with the Redskins is limited compared to say Jacoby and Samuels. I think I have to go with Big Jake. Jacoby, in many ways, redefined the position and the importance of a strong left-tackle. He was a man before his time

Definitely a tough one but I went with Lachey. In his prime he was unbeatable, had his career lasted a few more years he's probably a HOF player.

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

They ask for the top one, instead of ranking them.

My ranking:
1) Joe Jacoby
2) Jim Lachey
3) Chris Samuels

Those three are incredibly good.

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

This has been a strong position for the Redskins and practically all of the guys listed are deserving. I will have to go with Joe Jacoby because of his longevity and versatility. He pretty much dominated most defensive ends. Jim Lachey would have been my other choice but Jacoby was a Redskin longer.

I agree.

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

Lachey probably was the a top 10 tackle of all time. but wasn't with the skins long enough. big Joe really revolutionized the position. Samuels is headed towards the hall with his stellar play. Starke, one of the original hogs( enough said) and May was a pro bowl caliber tackle. im not sure people realize how blessed the skins have been with offensive tackle play. i vote big Joe

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

Lachey was awesome! As Matty said, if his career had lasted longer he's a HOFer. By the same token, I don't remember Jake getting beat too often. He exemplified what the Hogs were all about. Jake was blood and guts and he gets my vote.

My thoughts exactly. One of the best trades in franchise history.

Bingo. This is the way I see it. Jacoby was amazing in his prime, and he lasted a while. Truely a beast. Maybe if Lachey lasted longer he would win this debate, but he didn't.

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

I don't remember Turk Edwards so i will speak for my generation.

1- Lachey and Jacoby tied for 1st with a slight edge to Jacoby being that he was FA and played his whole career for the Skins.

The worst and I can't believe he's on the list is George Starke, he was the king of holding penalties. He got better when Grimm, May and Bostic showed up.

LOL . I do remember as a kid hearing " holding number 74 " a few times, ... drive killer . He did however improve and become a guy I liked as a Skin during the 80's SUPER BOWL CHAMPION WASHINGTON REDSKINS !!!

Re: Redskins Best Ever series: OFFENSIVE TACKLE

Over the years we have been very blessed at the Tackle position. If I pick one it's Jake.

1 - Joe Jacoby: Started in all 3 SBs. All-Decade 1980s. 4 Consecutive Pro Bowls, 2 1st Team All-Pros. One of he first 300+ pounders who was also athletic. Could maul in the run game and was excellent in pass-pro.

2 - Turk Edwards: Started in 2 NFL Championships for the Skins. All Decade 1930s, All NFL 1932-39. Member of HoF.

3 - Jim Lachey: Started in 1 SB. 3 Pro Bowls, 3 1st Team All-Pros as a Skin. Technique second to none. Probably better than Jacoby in pass-pro.

As far as the DCPSR List so far, IMO should be: Green, Ken Houston, Olkewicz, Hanburger, Mann, Butz.
