The Redskins Ultimate Pro Bowler Frankenstein Sketch

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 4:11 pm


Over the course of a week, we asked you  to stop your typical Facebook piddling and play Dr. Frankenstein (it’s pronounced Franken-steen) to create the ultimate Redskins Pro Bowler.

Your picks are in. Here’s the superhuman you created accompanied by some of the worst blogger-created art you will ever see.



You chose John Riggins‘ toughness over Sonny Jurgensen’s arm strength, Joe Jacoby’s upper body strength and Russ Grimm’s grit. Riggins went to the 1975 Pro Bowl.




You selected Darrell Green‘s agility over Clinton Portis’ honing vision, Ryan Kerrigan’s speed and Charlye Taylor’s elusiveness. Green participated in seven Pro Bowls (1984, 1986-87, 1990-91, 1996-97)

Darrell Green



You picked Art Monk‘s sure hands over Chris Samuels’ footwork, Bobby Mitchell’s balance and Robert Griffin III’s accuracy. Monk went to three straight Pro Bowls (1984-86).



You picked Sean Taylor‘s fearlessness over London Fletcher’s leadership, Sam Huff’s passion and Sammy Baugh’s versatility. Taylor was selected to two consecutive Pro Bowls (2006-2007).

I created a collage of these four men in Microsoft Paint, but I assure you it’s far too ugly for publication. And you’re about to see just how low that bar is. Abandoning the digital approach, I decided to sketch my ultimate Pro Bowler.

DRAW ONE YOURSELF: Send me your submissions to hiattg@redskins.com. If I get enough, I’ll post my favorite sketches to the blog next week after the Pro Bowl.

    I’d just like to point out that Robert Griffin 3rd took us to the playoffs in his rookie campaign. Off of sheer skill. he hobble through this season, but imo showed what I look for in a Qb. He showed true grit. I don’t want to make the comparison, but Mike Vick killed team’s with his legs for years. He also had a cannon for an arm. He lacked two things. Dedication to the craft, and accuracy. Two things I don’t believe you can teach. My point to all this… as long as RG3 stays grounded, the skies the limit.
