That Redskins team was almost machine like with it’s precision, they could beat you on both offense and defense. We also had top-notch play on special teams.
The Hogs would open huge running lanes and allowed nine sacks, all season! We had a one-thousand yard runner and two WR’s with at least one-thousand yards as well.
That was also the year we all rode along with Tony Kornheiser’s Bandwagon all the way to Minneapolis for our date with the Buffalo Bills in the Super Bowl.
The 1991 team may have been the best team in franchise history. It was the fourth Super bowl appearance in a 10 year period during head coach Joe Gibbs’ 12 years steering the ship.
