John Riggins: The Redskins all time rushing leader, he rushed for over a thousand yards 5 times in his career (4 as a redskin) and was the hero of the 1982 Super Bowl
Joe Washington: The lightning to Riggins thunder and a great receiver coming out of the backfield.
George Rodgers: Riggins replacement and a Redskin from ’85 to ’87 . He ran for a thousand yards twice as a Redskin and led the league in rushing touchdowns (18) in 1986.
Timmy Smith: One game gets him on the list
Earnest Byner: He was never a flashy or explosive runner, but he was always a reliable runner and receiver. Played for the Redskins from ’89 to ’93. He rushed for a thousand yards twice (and just missed a third time by 2 yards in ’92) as a Redskin.
Terry Allen: Signed as a free agent from the Vikings in ’95, all he did as a Redskin during his 4 year stint was rush for over four thousand yards and scored 36 TDs. He led the league with 21 rushing touchdowns in ‘96
Stephen Davis: Played with the Skins from ’96 to ’02. He was a great combination of speed and power, rushing for over five thousand seven hundred yards as a Redskin. We went on to help Carolina into the Super Bowl in 2003.
Clinton Portis: Acquired in from Denver in 2004 for Champ Bailey and a 2nd round pick (I’ll never fully recover from this trade), Portis ran for over 6,800 yards as a Redskin and 46 touchdowns over a seven year span.
