Dust off your old cassette player to set the mood for this Movember matchup, because it pits Washington Redskins who left their marks during the 1980’s and 1990’s — Joe Jacoby and Terry Allen.
As part of the Washington Redskins’ efforts to raise awareness for men’s health issues during Movember, there will be a running social media contest until the end of the month pitting current and former players who rocked the upper-lip coat against one another.
The Redskins Blog during this month of mustache growth has touched on the importance of several former Redskins who just happened to feel that upper-lip hair was the only facial hair needed.
Of course you can’t talk about the Redskins without mentioning “The Hogs” — a group of now famous offensive lineman including Jacoby.
And during the 1996 season, the last at RFK Stadium, Allen would leave fans with everlasting memories.
From 1983-86, Jacoby earned four Pro Bowl berths and was named a first-team All-Pro on two occasions. The 6-foot-7 Louisville product helped the Redskins win three Super Bowls before retiring following the 1993 season.
Allen, meanwhile, would spend four seasons in Washington, where he rushed for more than 4,000 yards and 37 touchdowns.
In 1996, Allen rushed for 1,353 yards and 21 touchdowns — second-most in a single season in franchise history.
