Re: 1991 Redskins 20th Anniversary

You know, I was watching Super Bowl 22 today, and realized that in today's NFL, the Redskins would have gotten called many times for roughing the passer, as well as a few personal foul calls on a defenseless receiver. I also saw a pass from Rypien to Byner that would have been called incomplete. Couple that with the non-call on the pass interference toward the end of the first half, and that game would have been A LOT closer than what it was.

My apologies if this was brought up earlier in the thread, but it kind of makes me chuckle a bit by how strict the officials call games now - at least on the Redskins. You can definitely tell a HUGE difference in how much the officials are trying to protect the players nowadays.

It's a different game in many ways, and not just when the Redskins play.

The Pats played this way for years. Not only against Indy but they did the same thing to the Rams in the 01 Super Bowl. Wr's should have fear when they catch the ball, not given a chance to catch the ball and run before being hit. That's just not football.That game plan against Buffalo was pure perfection. Brad Edwards could've easily been the MVP. But you're correct, there would've been a ton of 15 yarders and then fines. This crap that's played today is just garbage. I still watch but it's just not the same.

Thats a good one!!

Redskins 1991: Training camp - The Washington Post

I think Brian Mitchell gets it right except for the 95 Bears, but if you win in DC the love will be immeasurable.

I'd say the only questionable call was the play when Reed threw down his helmet. It looked like Edwards was going for the ball. As long as he does that then it shouldn't matter what happens to the wr. Edwards has just as much right to the ball as the wr. Incidental contact. This is how it should be played. The refs and the league today are soft as butter and would never let any of this rough play go on.

Agree in full, it surprises me as such an emotional game that football is that we haven't seen a real nasty incident from the defensive side of the ball in regards to an offensive friendly call.

Certainly a faster game today, but not necessarily a better game than in 1991.

OMG! You are a mere child. Old is actually remembering and seeing games in old Griffith Stadium. Old is being excited in 1960 when I actually met Eddie LeBaron and then being upset when I found out he was going to play for the newly minted Dallas Cowboys. That was the biggest test of my Redskin loyalty, ever, but somehow I and it survived LeBaron's move.
