For Three Redskins It’s All In The Name

Robert Griffin IIIAlfred MorrisLondon Fletcher.

Those are three names that are currently linked to the Washington Redskins across the league as key cogs to the Burgundy and Gold claiming their first division title in 13 years.

While the trio looks to join Redskins greats Sam Huff and Chris Hanburger in the halls of Canton someday, one current Redskin will be joining them on a slightly different list. (Hint—he hasn’t even played a game yet.)

When the Redskins selected University of Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo with the 191st overall pick, Redskins Nation became elated with the former All-American.

Suddenly, No. 10 has competition for top jersey sales in the NFL—everyone wants a Rambo jersey.

Shades of John Rambo handing out bare knuckled, world-class butt whoppings started recurring in everyone’s minds.

No word yet if Bacarri will be joining John bare-handed this year, but we can tell you that he joins the two Hall of Famers on NFL.com’s All-Time All-Name Team.

Huff migrated to our Nation’s Capital in 1964 after several years in the Big Apple. After helping the Burgundy and Gold to its best record in nine years and the G-Men recording the worst record in the league in his first season, it’s safe to say Giants fans huffed and puffed well into the winter months about Huff leaving town.

No. 70’s last four years of a Hall of Fame career were spent alongside Hanburger. Originally Huff worried about Hanburger booting him out of town, but later realized the two could coexist and well–destroy opponents at will.

While it’s been 44 years since the pair took the field together, they once again are rejoined on the All-Time All-Name Team.

While “Sam Huff” is certainly an easy name to type out, double checking Hanburger’s with spell checker isn’t a bad idea.

As a PSA please don’t confuse the linebacker’s name with a timeless American classic—he’s known to have laid down some Rambo-style lickings.

    Why would my e-mail not be published. I do not understand, did I do something wrong. Born in Jan 37 in Washington, DC and have loved and followed the REDSKINS ever since. Moved to Montana but never missed a game, now retired and living Florida and still have seen 99 % of games played. Had season tickets at Griffith Stadium.

    How doesn’t Rock Cartwright make the list?
