Hail To The Redskins Walk: Part 3

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 2, 2011 – 4:22 pm

Thanks to the two new Redskins walls, we can take a step back in time in Redskins history.  Slick back your hair and take your best gal to the drive-in; let’s take a step back into the 1950s.

The Redskins entered the decade behind the arm of an aging Sammy Baugh, and the performance of the team was slipping.  The team brought in Packers legend Earl “Curly” Lambeau to coach the team back to greatness, but it was just no use.  After an illustrious career, Baugh retired at the end of 1952, and Lambeau was fired after the first preseason game of the 1954 season.

And who said preseason games don’t matter?

The decade had some highs too, as the Redskins became the first team to sign a television deal, putting them into living rooms coast-to-coast.  The team saw a return to glory by the end of the decade, and in 1959, signed a 30-year lease to keep them in the Nation’s Capital.

Here’s a look at the 1950’s section of the H.T.T.R. Walk:

    @Cranky Fan-
    We’re all playing the waiting game, don’t worry. Although the cuts must be finalized by 6, the team can announce them any time after that. Hang in there–
