An Epic Rock Tribute To Chris Hanburger

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 6, 2011 – 7:21 pm

As we stands on the eve of Chris Hanburger’s induction into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame, let’s take a look back at the incredible Redskins career of No. 55:

Just because it took so long for the voters to enshrine him in Canton should not take away anything from Hanburger’s legacy.

This honor is very well deserved for a hard-hitting, soft-spoken man.

The Redskins Larry Michael is in Canton providing coverage of the event, which we will post when it becomes available.  Tune in to the NFL Network now for coverage of the induction ceremony.

    Now after Chris Hanburger’s induction to the Hall Of Fame and another linebacker,Les Richter, a star of the Los angeles Rams in the 1950s,I’m hoping to see another star linebacker finally get his due in Canton via the Seniors Selection route.
    Like Hanburger, Maxie Baughan was a 9-time Pro Bowler.
    A major disadvantage Baughan has had however, compared to Richter and Hanburger was that rather being associated with one team all of his career, Baughan’s career was pretty much split right down the middle with six years as a Philadelphia Eagle (1960-65) and six years with the Los Angeles Rams (1966-1971). He had five Pro bowl selections as an Eagle and four as a Ram and he made the Pro bowl every year in the 1960s except 1962, when the Philly team had an overall letdown that reduced them from a contendeer to a last place team. He was even the only rookie to make the Pro Bowl in 1960 and he played an important role in that team winning the NFL title, the Pre-1966 equivilant of winning The Super Bowl. Certainly the Rams sudden improvement and their going 11-1-2 to win their division shortly after Baughan’s arrival in The City Of Angels was no accident or coincidence. Had he remained with the Eagles his whole career and been associated only with that franchise it would have improved his chances for selection to the HOF a great deal. As it is, half of his career was played with a team that no longer resides in Los Angeles and has a connection in name only to the current St. Louis Rams.
    Let’s not forget that Baughan was a Redskin also, coming out of retirement in 1974 to be a player-coach of the Redskins special teams, standing on the sidelines in uniform with clipboard in hand, barking out orders to Special Team charges and occasionally inserting himself into the onfield fray, a bit older and weathered than in his rookie days, but tougher than ever. – Dennis Orlandini
