Washington Redskins By the Numbers: #2

No, it was not an April Fool's Joke. We are actually going through the numbers from 1 to 99 picking out noteworthy (sometimes our favorite, sometimes just "noteworthy") Redskins. You asked if I was bored at work...well, given I am not the oil-boy for the Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Model Tour, or the personal assistant to Charlie Sheen (yet), I think it is fair to say I am as bored as any of us out there.

I am not tired today though. Thanks to the Caps/Penguins not playing last night, I was able to go to bed a little earlier and gird my loins for what promises to be a BIG night for DC tonight. Let's Go Caps!

I know what you're saying. This guy SUCKED out loud for the Redskins. His 19-year career is actually impressive when you stack it all up. The guy was a 2-time Pro-Bowler, and was named the MVP of the 1980 Pro Bowl (kicked for 11 years I think for the Lions). He also was named first team All-Pro in 1980. But at the age of 44, he was called out of retirement to come and kick for our beloved Redskins (a second tour of duty with Washington, the first being in 1995) and help a team that had started out 6-2 under Norv Turner. The 49-yarder he came up short on against the Giants (a game which we lost 9-7 and essentially destroyed our season in 2000) was heart-breaking for those of us in attendance (yours truly among them). But the miss had other ramifications--Norv Turner was fired the next day. So if that bad kick was responsible for kicking that no-good, sad-sack, soul-grating, ex-Cowgirl coach out of town, I say....."It's Good!"

Ed-die, Ed-die!

What can I say...I just couldn't bring myself to put Kelly Goodburn in this spot once I confirmed that you could link Norv Turner's firing with Eddie Murray.
