Hail To The Redskins Walk: Part 7

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 10, 2011 – 12:00 pm

Hello ’90’s, my old friend.  Hanson sounds like legitimate music, skateboarding is cool (the first time around), and the Redskins come into the decade riding a wave of talent and determination.

The 1990s panel on the Redskins history wall is book-ended with a flurry of franchise activity at the beginning and end of the decade.  The team soared into the ’90’s behind the arm of Mark Rypien and the sure hands of Art Monk and The Posse.

The Redskins kicked off the 1990s with a Super Bowl run in 1991 that made them Kings of the World once again.  The Redskins dominate the Buffalo Bills 37-24 and Mark Rypien is named Super Bowl MVP, going 18-of-33 for 292 yards and two touchdowns. The defense shuts down the high-powered Bills offense, limited Thurman Thomas to 10 yards and sacked Jim Kelly five times.

When head coach Joe Gibbs retired in 1993, he took some of the magic with him, and the team needed a spark.  In 1997, the doors opened on Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in Landovery, Md., a veritable palace for NFL football.  In 1999, the team was sold to life-long fan and marketing and communications mogul Daniel Snyder.  The team wrapped up the decade standing atop the NFC East with a 10-6 record, their first division title since 1991.

    I was a waiter at Steak and Ale and it was a slow night ,tip wise, on a early Saturday night. But that was just great with me as I had traded shifts with some moron who had Sunday afternoon off. The knucklehead had NFL Sunday afternoon off and traded with me even up. Like I said, what a moron.
    Jack, another waite that was a good friend, waked up to me with a smile from football heaven and said, “you got a two-top-a couple that was just seated in your station.” “What you smiling about?” “You’ll see!” he said as he followed me toward my station. My curiosity was maxed.as Jack doesn’t get too excited about anything except NFL football.
    I turned the corner and there He sat; the now hall of fame quarterback Sonny Jurgenson. On the night before we played the Cowboys he was having dinner with his wife. He ordered steak; medium rare. We won Sunday.
