Re: Darrell Green has still got it

I've expressed my sentiments about DG in the past, based on multiple personal experiences with him. But that's, to me, irrelevant to what he meant to the Redskins and their fans on Sundays. He is, on the field at least, one of the greatest Redskins ever. And I would venture to say many of us would not even be on this board, let alone fans of the Redskins, if not for Green.

Okay, he didn't say that last part. But we'd like to send out a hearty PFT happy birthday to Green, a memorable player for all of his 20 NFL seasons
Wait, did you copy/paste this from PFT, or are you actually involved with that site? If you are, tell Florio he's a douche.

Happy BD Darrell Green. Sign the man up, even at 50 he's still better right now than anything we have in the secondary.

I agree SS. He's meant a ton to this franchise. Happy Birthday DG and thanks for catching Dorsett. It was great!

Re: Darrell Green has still got it

He is probably my favorite Redskin of all time but the few times I have meet him he is jerky and put off by the attention. Ok so if you don't like fans bugging you don't live in Loudon County and have a road named after you, you are just asking for attention. Move to FL or better yet Dallas no will give a crap about you.

Part of it is a lot of folks love the guy for who they see on the field and on air, big smile, hard worker, great athlete, Mr. Redskins, etc... then when they actually meet him expectations are not meet.

I agree it is hard to be "on" all the time, so I credited the few poor encounters Ihad with him as having a bad day but when I brought it up on this forum it seemed like Iwas not alone in my findings.

In the end he made me very happy on many Sunday afternoons and he does a lot for the DC area, so with that Happy B-Day DG!

Re: Darrell Green has still got it

I guess it all goes along with the saying "Never meet your heroes"

I understand not wanting to be pestered everywhere you go, but those fans are the reason he's rich

On the same line as "the women in your head are always better than those in your bed"

SS, you seem to have had access to many players in the past. This is off topic, but I'm curious - of great Redskin players you covered, who were the best that you dealt with off the field/off the record?

Regardless of Green's off-field demeanor, he will always be a favorite. I liken his freakish speed at an advanced age to Nolan Ryan still throwing no-hitters and 98 degree heat at 46. Both Green and Ryan were extreme freaks of nature.

Well as far as "Great Redskins Players" I guess my favorite is probably Charles Mann. Brian Mitchell's pretty cool too. Tre Johnson was always entertaining.

Danny Wuerffel was awesome, could never say enough nice things about him as a person (though I can't say I liked seeing him on the field in a Redskins uniform). Kevin Lockett was pretty cool too. Well not cool per se, but nice to talk to about stuff other than football. Dana Stubblefield was always nice to me, but apparently not to his wife, which is extremely disappointing.

And then there was Michael Westbrook, who when he wanted to be was the most pleasant, engaging person to be around. But could change in a matter of seconds.

Re: Darrell Green has still got it

If Chuck Norris lost both of his legs, he could beat DG in a foot race. JK, Happy B-day, and damn, slow down and enjoy getting old.
