The Redskins Blog continues it’s look at the wonderful work Ed Sabol did during his illustrious career by featuring this piece NFL Films did on Vince Lombardi’s lone season in Washington.

Hired before the 1969 season, Lombardi, as seen in the video above, wanted to make the Redskins winners right away.

He did, leading the burgundy and gold to a 7-5-2 record — their first winning season since 1955.

What’s also interesting to see beyond just executing on Sundays under Lombardi, was the attention to detail the team employed in the months leading up to the season.

Quarterback Sonny Jurgensen came into training camp in the best shape of his life, while linebacker Sam Huff returned after a year away from the game.

Check back with The Redskins Blog tomorrow as we’ll have more on the 1972 team through footage captured by NFL Films.
