I can remember every one of the SB's in the 80's. I can remember being in high school and our marching band was invited to play in the Parade. Oh, I'm sorry guys some of you might not know what a SB parade is. LOL. I try not to think about what has happened to the team too much cause I sit back and get pissed looking at the product we have now and comparing it to what we had then.

You youngins don't know what you are missing. They only thing the rest of us can share is ....it's like the best day you have ever had at work after a Skins major victory X 100.

i'm in the exact same boat here.. looking back, i was blessed growing up with those redskins teams..problem is, i STILL hold the team to those standards and it's frustrating to watch them struggle.

Re: Glory days

cant believe how time flies. i remember me and my dad watching the 1972 NFC championship game, when Charlie Taylor burned the rookie Marc Washington,. the skins blew out Dallas 24-3. have the cowboys ever beaten the skins in the playoffs? was there ever a better motivator/ coach then George Allen?

I remember that game well also because it had been a long time since we had been actually playing for something. The stands in RFK were rocking that day, and for the George Allen era, that day the Redskins had arived.

The only other time we played the Cowboys post-season was for the 1982 Championship which we won 31-17 and propelled us to the SB.

32 years later he would change his name to Marcus and sign with the Redskins...I'm telling you all we do is sign overpriced bums

How about our replacement players back in '87. That was a great 3 game stretch led by strong coaching and a unified locker room

Strong coaching yes, but the regular players ddn't have any love for that group. We were fortunate that year in that the Giants were the team to beat, and they lost all their scabb games. Parcells didn't have much success with his replacement players, Joe Gibbs got a QB form a half-way house in Va. and for a few games made him look better than Theismann.

That may have been the best coaching that I've ever seen. The Skins scabs even beat Dallas despite the presence of several Cowboys regulars who crossed the picket line. Now that's coaching.

The best coaching ever was done by Joe Gibbs I (on his last year 1992-3 season) the team had so many injuries all around OL/DL/RB etc. and yet they beat Minnesota as a wildcard team and flew to SF and lost to the 49ers 20-13 after the Mitchell fumble (we almost won that game).

We do not have that physical play anymore.
Notice in the background the home made banners and painted bed sheets that Jack Kent Cooke allowed fans to bring to the games back them.

Yeah, I think this was my favorite game from the entire era. The Super Bowl victories were all fantastic and unforgettable, but this was not only the game that earned us our first SB visit of the Gibbs I era, it also came with a "I can't believe it!" feeling. Entering that season, the Cowboys had won the NFC East the previous six years in a row and had made it to the NFC Championship game the previous two. They were the only team to beat us during the regular season, and it was their fifth consecutive victory over us. As badly as I wanted the win, I really wasn't expecting it. That made Grant's touchdown quite possibly my favorite moment of all of the years I've rooted for the team.

And how great is it to watch replays featuring the Redskins at RFK with Pat Summerall announcing the game?

Re: Glory days

I remember the Super Bowl in 92 (91 season). My Dad had been yelling all through the playoffs as i tried to comfort him by the fact that the Redskins in my mock card game were winning. The next day in school (I was in the first grade) our teacher had us draw a picture of the Super Bowl. I of course drew Mark Rypien throwing a pass to Art Monk. I guess I'm making up for the dark ages of the 90's now because when I moved to Chicago in 93 I became more into Baseball and Basketball (rooting of course for the Orioles and Bullets). It wasn't until I started playing football in Georgia around 1999 that I took an interest in the Redskins again.

Re: Glory days

Love the memories!
I think the thing that frustrates me the most about right now is the Skins' management does not seem to care about the fans. They seem tone deaf and ignorant to what is going on.
One thing JKC always did was value the fans and let them know it.

Yes, with Ed Rubbert and Tony Robinson at QB. We all remember them as household names don't we?

My Father would always tell me about Ray Flaherty, and how great the Redskins were in the years immediately following the start of the war. Ray Flaherty then, was our Joe Gibbs now.

That's really good stuff though,and makes me think a long way back.
