About The Washington Redskins
Currently members of the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL), the Washington Redskins are a professional team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. They play at FedEx field in Landover, Maryland. The club’s headquarters located at Redskin Park in Ashburn, Virginia, which is also their training place.
The club was originally called the Boston Braves, which joined the NFL as a 1932 expansion team based in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1933, it was renamed the Boston Redskins to distinguish itself from the baseball team of the same name. In 1937 the team moved to the Washington, D.C. area. The Redskins wear jerseys of burgundy, gold and white. Out of their five appearances in the Super Bowl, they have won on three occasions - 1982 (XVII), 1987 (XXII), 1991 (XXVI).
From 1936 to 1945, they captured two league crowns and posted ten back-to-back winning records. Cliff Battles and Sammy Baugh were the chief architects of this success, both eventually becoming Hall of Fame members.
During 1971-1992, the Redskins qualified for the playoffs 13 times, competed in five Super Bowls, and won three of them. The team’s stars included Ken Houston, Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, Art Monk, Charley Taylor, and John Riggins.
After moving from Boston to Washington, D.C. in 1937, the Redskins tasted uninterrupted success till 1942, when head coach Ray Flaherty led them to seven consecutive winning records and three appearances in the NFL Championship Game. They faced the Chicago Bears in all three contests, winning narrowly in 1937 and 1942 and suffering a massive 73-0 defeat in 1940. The 1937 title match will be remembered for the introduction of screen pass by Flaherty, which has now become a standard offensive play.
The Redskins went through a lean period from 1946 through 1970, when they failed to reach the playoffs even for once and posted just four winning records. After taking over as head coach in 1971, George Allen dramatically reshaped the team, and the Redskins, known as the Over the Hill Gang, posted nine victories. In his seven seasons with the club, Allen produced seven winning records, five playoff appearances, and one trip to the Super Bowl in 1973 which they lost to the Miami Dolphins 14-7.
In 1981 Joe Gibbs was made head coach who delivered ten winning records, eight playoff appearances, and three Super Bowl championships. The Redskins defeated Miami 27-17 in the Super Bowl. They dominated the NFC during the mid-1980s. In 1991 Gibbs built a strong offensive unit comprising Mark Rypien, Earnest Byner, Gary Clark and Art Monk. After the season they trounced the Buffalo Bills 37-24 in the Super Bowl.
The Redskins performed poorly for much of the mid- and late 1990s, but rebounded in 1999 and won their division.
