Re: Number Seven Belongs To Thiesman

i know joe t. won a super bowl here. but think people would be surprised if they looked at his stats. very average. but benefited from that strong running game

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Thiesman

Danny Wuerffel is weeping in a corner somewhere.

#7 won a Heisman, won a National Championship in the Sugar Bowl, wore #17 with the Redskins. Am I crazy or did he also wear #14 with us at one point?

And that's good enough. It's just a number. Seriously ... Just a number.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

Look, I know that his number isn't retired,but having your number set aside signifies that you've done special things in your career for yourself and your team..but Joe may give it to the kid anyhow!

Different era. Different time. That was back when having an elite running back was worth more than the quarterback. But still, Joey T got the 'skins to two Super Bowls. In the end, if Theismann is OK with Haskins wearing #7, then I'm OK with it too. If JT had an issue with it, then I'm sure Haskins would have been OK wearing Doug Williams' old number. I think it's going to bring us good luck having #7 out there again.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

What was JT supposed to say? Of course he's going to give his blessing. But if you got him off the record and behind closed doors, he'd probably say he prefers Haskins wear another #.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

I still think it was classy of Joe T. to offer Haskins his number. He didn't have to do it.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

Ultimately itís up to the team to give out a number. I would hope behind the scenes Joe has not only said ok to Haskins but the team checked with him too.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

Weve been losing seasons for like 25 years. What number someone wears shouldn't even be a conversation, imo. Ita like the house being on fire, but worrying if the toaster is ok. There are much bigger things to worry about and speak on, on this team. I get that people have an emotional attachment to the era when we were winning...but imo it just doesn't matter. Win games. That's all that matters. It's such a shit show of a franchise anymore that this is what the fan base is concerned with...what number our rookie QB wears. As an aside....I would always take the number 69. Like.....always.

I couldn't disagree more... If Theismann gave his blessing, Theismann meant it. He's never been someone who is stuck in his legacy. He's a Redskins fan and he's always going to supportive of the new QB.

I would wager to say that he could have said no.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

JT didn't have to say anything publically. But as we know Joey loves to talk so this was right up his alley.

The team needs to do something already to address the protected/unofficially retired numbers deal. Start retiring some numbers or let them be worn. It's not that hard. I say if you're a HOF player the number should be retired. JT falls into a gray area, not HOF, but still a very important player in the team's history.

Re: Number Seven Belongs To Theismann

I think Joe did the classy and right thing. Haskins asked Theismann the right way and Joe answered in the way to help out the team without making it an issue.

Peter is spot on.

Joe is no legend
