If you bring up the Redskins with longtime Rams offensive lineman Jackie Slater, he’ll instantly recall a time of great embarrassment.

Joining ESPN 980 on the final weekday before the Super Bowl, Slater felt compelled to share a laughable game — in terms of the score and his exit from the stadium — he and the Rams experienced against Washington on New Years Day, 1984.

“We come there with [head coach] John Robinson and our owner [Georgia Frontiere], she was a gracious lady,” Slater said. “I felt we were the envy of National Football League to have a female owner because she did all these little things that were so special.”

Then an innocent gesture turned into a nightmarish image after the game.

“Cabbage Patch dolls were out this particular year,” he said. “Unbeknownst to any of us –we were there for the holidays, for Christmas –she gave all of us these cute little Cabbage Patch dolls to the players to give to our kids, our wives. By the way, we had a football game that day. [The Redskins] beat us 51-7 and here we come all the way out of that locker room. After getting beat 51-7, we’re carrying the dolls. One of the most embarrassing moments of my career.”

He also discussed some of the greatest pass rushers he had to match up against in his career.

“I had to deal with Charles Mann,” he said. “In fact Charles Mann beat me for a sack in Anaheim his rookie year. And I remember thinking I was going to have a pretty good day because the kid was young and I knew they had  lot of veterans over there from other teams that were kind of mentoring Charles and bringing him along.

“I remember going to the sideline and I looked over at their bench and he was surrounded by the veterans and he was telling them what he had done, walking through the moves and I said, ‘this is not going to happen again.’ But Charles Mann, he was an outstanding, outstanding pass rusher.”

Watch the full interview above and enjoy a nice laugh.
