Hundreds of ecstatic Washington Redskins fans packed into Ernies and Tilted Kilt in Scottsdale, Ariz., Saturday evening, to rally the burgundy and gold to victory against the Cardinals in Sunday’s NFC tilt.
The crowd was treated to appearances by Redskins legends Gary Clark, Chris Cooley, Mark Moseley and Rick “Doc” Walker, as well as Redskins President/general manager Bruce Allen.
Clark, who played his first 8 seasons in the NFL with the Redskins, helped the Redskins win 2 Super Bowl titles. He finished his illustrious career in burgundy and gold with 549 receptions for 8,742 yards – he recorded at least 1,000 yards in 5 seasons — and 58 touchdowns.
Cooley ended his Redskins career as the franchise’s all-time leader in receptions by a tight end. A two-time Pro Bowler, Cooley can currently be heard on ESPN 980, as well as an analyst during all games on the Redskins Radio Network.
Moseley, meanwhile, spent 13 seasons with the Redskins, earning three Pro Bowl berths. He made history during the 1982 season, when he became the only kicker in NFL history to win MVP honors.
Walker, a great Redskins tight end, played with the team from 1980 through 1985, winning a Super Bowl title with the team during the 1982 season. He is currently a fixture on the sidelines during each game for the Redskins Broadcast Network, and also co-hosts the daily show “Inside The Locker Room” on ESPN 980.
Fans packed the house, as prizes ranging from signed memorabilia to free tickets to tomorrow’s game were raffled off.
