Something Special: Laying the Groundwork

New, comments

In the debut of a new podcast series,  Tom discusses the backstory and early season exploits of the 1991 Washington Redskins.

Cardinals V Redskins

The 1991 Redskins are, by some accounts, the greatest team in franchise history. They may even be the greatest Super Bowl champion of all time.

Even two-plus decades consisting largely of frustration and ineptitude can't wash away the glory of that year.

Since 2016 is the 25th anniversary of the last Washington Redskins championship team, I thought this was as solid a justification as any to debut a new podcast series for Hogs Haven.

In researching the ‘91 Redskins, one phrase that came up over and over when I read player interviews was “something special.” That’s why I chose “Something Special” for the title of this series.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be revisiting the story of the 1991 Redskins and the players and moments that made the team so memorable. You can listen to the first episode, entitled “Laying the Groundwork,” below.
