“18 Plays” Part Two

“I’m excited about this. Nobody is, and I don’t look at it as a quarterback controversy. I look at as you got two good ones.”

-Joe Gibbs

In Part Two of “18 Plays: The Super Bowl 22 Champions, Gibbs and other Redskins look back on the quarterback controversy between Doug Williams and Jay Schroeder and the unifying effect of the players’ strike.

Here are a few of my favorite moments.

Wiliams and Ricky Sanders. Just a heartwarming shot here. The chemistry between quarterback and wide receiver would prove crucial in the Super Bowl.

“I think we just knew how important it was to stay together as a team, to have nobody cross over that line, that picket line, plus Darryl Grant would have killed you anyhow.”

-Gary Clark

Grant famously assaulted the bus carrying replacement players. I’m serious when I say nothing is more imposing than an army jacket paired with sunglasses and a leather combat beret.

Grant

Punctuation. Correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t this be a statement? Were they glad to get the starters back? I’m Ron Burgundy? Bonus points for quality duct tape work.

Fat man football. Philadelphia’s defensive line in that era basically got Williams under center. Reggie White separated Schroeder’s shoulder, and later on Jerome Brown intercepts him. If you haven’t watched NFL Films’ “Reggie White and Jerome Brown: A Football Life,” do yourself a favor.
