[With eight days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at quarterback Mark Brunell’s 2005 season. After losing his starting role in 2004, Brunell returned to the field in 2005 and led the Washington Redskins back to the playoffs for the first time since 1999.]

In 2012, Robert Griffin III solidified one of the more fluid positions for the Washington Redskins over the past two decades—quarterback.

Now more than ever, Redskins fans are patiently awaiting No. 10’s return to the field as the magnificent 16 game sample seems like merely an appetizer to a prominent career.

Since 2000, Griffin III is the third quarterback (Patrick Ramsey and Jason Campbell are the other) the Redskins have selected in the first round of the league’s annual draft.

Although he showed glimpses of promise at times, Ramsey conceded his starting gig to veteran Mark Brunell after injuring his neck in the first week of the 2005 season. Despite his age, the three-time Pro Bowler’s play kept Ramsey on the sidelines for the remainder of the season and led the Redskins back to the playoff for the first time in six years.

Darrel Young’s Unusual Pregame Tune

If you’re like me, you have to listen to music on your way to work in the mornings or during a workout to get pumped up for the day.

NFL players, of course, are no different when they are getting ready for game days. You’ve seen them stroll into stadiums across the country with headphones on jamming out to some sort of song before the day’s work.

Ask around and most would prefer music with heavy bass that can get that adrenaline pumping before the start of each contest. Maybe it’s one of diehard Washington Redskins fan Wale’s billboard toppers or some old school rock like ACDC or Kiss.

For fullback Darrel Young, though, his game day is–let’s just say unorthodox.
