Over the coming weeks, The Redskins Blog will be providing you with a different look at the franchise’s past.
Unlike Throwback Thursday where we’ve looked at important moments on the gridiron against an upcoming opponent, this series will examine some of the lighter moments as we go through all of the photos stored at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.
This photo of Redskins head coach Jack Pardee, taken October 22, 1978, looks relaxing and uncomfortable at the same time. Unfortunately for him, there don’t appear to be many chairs as equipment is packed up for a road trip.
Pardee coached the Redskins from 1978-80, leading the team to within one game of the playoffs in 1979 and played an All-Pro season for them at linebacker in 1971.
Some questions to consider from this photo…
— Why is Pardee reading a magazine in a seemingly empty locker room?
— Why isn’t he using the stool to sit?
— What magazine is he reading?
— Where is the team?
This photo is bizarrely fitting when you consider these Instagram posts today from quarterback Robert Griffin III and safety Duke Ihenacho. I suppose putting your feet up is worth it, regardless of where you’re laying down.
