A Seriously Vintage Redskins Commercial, And Other Links

Posted by Matt Terl on April 4, 2011 – 12:24 pm

Digging through YouTube for vintage Redskins clips during slow points in the offseason is a time-honored blogging tradition — heaven knows I’ve resorted to it a time or two — but Doug Ramey at Fatpickled does an impressively thorough job of it today. And a couple of the videos he’s unearthed are real gems. There’s a 1983 clip of a cocky group of Hogs staging a funeral for all the teams they’d beaten; given the way Super Bowl XVIII would end up, it’s cringe-inducingly painful to watch. (Neat, though, to see future broadcasting all-pro Rick Walker in his earliest days on air — so early that he hasn’t yet started using “Doc” in his introductions.)

There’s a George Allen/Sonny Jurgensen cigar commercial that I’m not sure I’ve seen before, a John Riggins Ford commercial that’s always funny, and this gem, a local car ad that doesn’t really go for the high production values of an Easterns Automotive:

That’s a really reasonable price for a car. (Also, Jerry Smith automatically wins the catching vs. blocking argument, because he’s one of the greatest tight ends in Redskins history — you can find him all over the record books despite having to share the ball with Charley Taylor and Bobby Mitchell. There are very few Redskins-related arguments where I won’t side with whatever Jerry Smith says.)

And a few other links….

  • Buried on the third page of Peter King’s weekly Monday Morning Quarterback, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan offers a brief review of the Lombardi play. (It’s under the heading “Vince Lombardi Factoid of the Week That May Interest Only Me II”.)
  • Brooding Burgundy interviews Anthony Artemis Armstrong about his convoluted journey to the pros. As Armstrong himself notes in the interview, this is well-chronicled territory at this point, but BB manages to unearth a few new nuggets. Especially notable: Armstrong has a nickname he’s trying to get into circulation.
  • TCU quarterback Andy Dalton is a QB prospect that caught some notice here earlier in the offseason; The Thundering Blurb takes an in-depth look at his pros and cons.
  • And last week I contributed to a mock draft that had the Redskins selecting Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers in the draft, with the caveat that his Pro Day would be crucial to his chances. Draft Breakdown does a detailed, er, breakdown on that Pro Day; the video below is a big part of it, but the whole thing is worth reading if you’re interested.
