If #7 isn't a legend then neither is Nameth.


Also, F Peter King!
I would be curious if long time NFL fans that followed other teams were asked to name the first Redskin from the past that comes to mind who they pick. I would venture a guess Riggins would come up a lot. As for Namath he got a lot of mileage out that big Super Bowl upset and a couple years in a row of insanely high passing yardage totals for the era.

If it's OK with Joe and the Redskins brass, then it's OK with me.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

As far as I am concerned, if they are still making #81 and #28 available, than they sure as hell can give out #7.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

In my mind if the team doesnít retire a number then itís free game. It should be a requirement for the showing of respect and asking the former great, or family, for their blessing. If they are ok with it then all is well if not pick a new number.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

Let's be real the ONLY reason Theisman has any pull over the number is because he played QB. Had he been any other position we wouldn't care one bit. As Sandtrap said, they're still giving out 81 and 28...

As far as i'm concerned, 9 and 33 are the only numbers we should have retired with 21 being "off limits." All else is fair game.

These old players need to get over themselves.

If what I read is accurate, no one has been issued 28 since 2002.
And only one player has been issued 81 since '93.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

People have mixed feelings about the #s thing. The team should just retire the ones they deem needed to be and move on.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

The Redskin are running into the same problem many other teams are , the're running out of numbers. . This question was ask on a Giant fan board about #10 and Eli . The Redskins have a "Ring of Honor" and I think that should take the place of retired numbers. Teams are just running out of usable #'s . Historic teams like the Skins , Packers, Bears,Brown and Giants just can't do it anymore. Giants have 12 numbers retired and 7 of those are between 1-16

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

He should start with Zero...then add 1 number for every playoff win....if he eventually gets to 7....YES....he can keep it

Who? He was my fucking hero as a kid. Haskins was really respectful in the way he went about it.
