Hail To The Burgundy And Gold

Having been a fan of the Redskins for over 30 years I have seen a lot of players come and go. With the salary cap, free agency, and the fact the average NFL player's career only lasts 4 season, players are gone before you know it.
So when it comes down to it, we root for colors. Maybe you root for the blue and orange, the silver and blue, or the silver and black. I look good in burgundy and gold. The names on the backs of the jersey's may change each year, but the colors, they are forever.
Once in a while we are lucky enough to have a few special players strap on the burgundy and gold. Players that leave a mark in our memories, and in our hearts. Players like Riggins, Theismann, Manley, Clark, Coleman, Butz, Green, Monk, The Hogs, Portis, Cooley, and Taylor.
And once in a while, the 53 guys wearing the burgundy and gold are truly a team. The 2008 Washington Redskins are a team, not 53 individuals. I believe that more than I can ever remember, dating back to the glory days. The Dallas Cowboys are in trouble! With all the I love me some me and pointing of fingers, they can't compete with this TEAM.


Like George Allen would say "With 53 men playing together, we can't lose!"
Cheers and Hail

speaking of coach allen, .. i feel real bad but i have to admit that i was a reserve guard on that long beach state u team in 1990. we just beat U.N.L.V. to have our first winning season in more than 15 years, and it was my idea to dump that gatorade bucket on coaches head. everyone was doing that back then!?! and we had won a big game!.... well coach got sick shortly after and some said it was my fault. i am so sorry............. all i have to say now is GO COWBOYS!!!!!! REDSKINS SUCK !!!

ya know, sometimes the good guys dont allways win, (or people we think are good guys)... portis is the same guy as T.O. ( remember him complaining about coaches play calling 3 games into his redskin career, or telling coaches he will play in preseason only if he want to, or this year saying he dreams of playing with a great offensive line !) or how about drug dealer sellers, or love boat smoot!- he had that idea cuz when he was in washington the first time he did that type of cruise 3 times ! this is the nfl , lotts of good guys and some bad guys, no team is all good guys. the team that wins tonight will have the q.b. that doesnt throw picks.
