    Thanks I needed that! I do have to say that with the current state of the Washington Redskins, I am almost saddened watching this knowing we are so far away from being that good!

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Funny thing is Riggins only averaged 3.9 yards a carry that day. But he earned every single one of them.

    If you have the means, watch Mike Nelms in that game. He was a freaking monster. I think fair catches were against his religion.

    Did Nelms ever fair catch one? I think I saw him catch one toward the end of his career.

    As for Riggo that day, in the History of the Redskins to that day the most important drive was Riggo's march down the field to end that game. In the previous decade we, as Redskins' fans, had watched 2 miraculous comebacks by the Girls so with little time on the clock Russ Grimm changed Gibbs' calls in the huddle to run the ball down the throat of the Girls, in particular Randy White, to put the game away!

    Exactly the type of hard nosed football this team has lacked since the early 90's.

    I had to look it up.

    Randel El this year, so far, has 11 fair catches.

    In 1991, the year we won the Superbowl, Brian Mitchell had 21 fair catches.

    In his five-year career, Mike Nelms had a grand total of seven. Five of them were during his rookie year.

    Thanks for doing the leg work I was too lazy to do.

    Mike Nelms was a freak. It didn't matter how many people were around him, he'd field a ball unless it was going into the end zone. Amazing guy
