Riggins is pretty bad ass but....DEXTER MANLEY is not only one of the most bad ass Redskins but one of the most bad ass players ever.

I have a question. I'm sorry if I get Manley confused with the other guy, but one of them couldn't read or write. Now, didn't this player also go to college? If so, did the NCAA ever have any sort of fine levied on his school for graduating (or accepting and keeping) a player who couldn't even read/write?

My question is bad boys on the field or off?

The article mentions Namath & Riggens as bad boys off the field, but I got the impression that Tatum was more of a bad boy on the field.

Anyways, as far as off the field, you gotta think about beer guzzling Sonny and his antics right off the bat.

As far as on the field, man, I wouldn't know where to start, we've had some real bad ass skins throughout the years...

good question rome. I would say off the field, because the article seems to say that what made Jack Tatum a real bad boy was his attitude off the field regarding his on-field hit of Stingley

Daseal, it was Manley who got a scholarship to Oklahoma State despite being illiterate. I don't know if OK State was punished for that though

As for bad boys I'm not going to count former Skins DB Raphel Cherry, who is currently in prison for murdering his wife.

So honestly I'm stumped, I can't think of bad boys off the field

Right now, I have to say Dexter Manley is the "baddest" player we have had play for the Redskins. I seem to recall one game where he got into a little scuffle after the play was dead, grabbed the guy's face mask and pulled the helmet clean off the guy's head. Needless to say, the fight didn't last very long.

How about Albert Connell? Granted it was after he left the Redskins but stealing money from his teammate Deuce McCalister's locker! That's just low

I think 3 of the 5 listed wore burgundy and gold.
Duane Thomas was with the Skins in 74, and went into the stands at an exhibition game in Buffalo.
Matuszak git cut by Allen in training camp the next year, if memory serves.

Baddest Redskin ever
Wilbur
Marshall

They had to mean off the field also. It was only for on the field where were Ray Nitsche (sp), Dick Butkus, Conrad Dobler, etc.
Manley would definitely be on the list. Besides being a killer on the field, he had all the drugs problems too.

depends upon whether you want on field or off field behavior as your standard..

off field:
sonny-- had to leave philly because of his extracuricular business dealings
cherry-- a thug in every sense of the word
manley- sad case, but of his own doing
peters- blew a career because of off field drugs
nate newton-- made his mark as a cowboy but was a redskin for a year early on.
riggins- constant anti-social behavior
connell- a thug also
westbrook-- sucker punch your own teammate at practice??
malcolm barnard- how bad are you when al davis can't stand you??

on field:
chris hanburger- almost decapitated some players
charley taylor- perfected the crackback block and cost chuck howley a season
pat fischer- can you say dirty??
sean taylor- already moving up there
ron sellers- both on and off field issues
diron talbert- mean and dirty
ken houston- enforcer par excellance
joe jacoby- a mean streak onthe move
matt millen-- only sorry he only played a season or 2 for the skins

When i think of bad or mean nfl players,
I think of Ted Hendricks, Wilbur Marshall, Ronny Lott.

Dexter to me has been and always will be a overhyped jerk. No pity.

Meanest Redskin ever , one season, mike curtis.

I waited outside for autographs after a loss to the Giants 76 or 77, and the players were not in a good mood to begin with. Some Dad yelled across the lot, "Hey Curtis, to good to sign an autograph.?"
Curtis looked over with a sneer at the dad and said , loud enough for the dad to hear, but in a quiet manner, "I'll sign your face"
