A lot of Redskins fans remember the moment head coach George Allen led the Burgundy and Gold to an NFC Championship victory over the Dallas Cowboys on New Year’s Eve, 1972.

How many remember the postgame, on-field celebration, when, in the midst of a massive crowd, a fan plucked the burgundy Redskins cap atop Allen’s head?

Well, as fate would have, more than 42 years later, the hat has returned to the Allen family.

President Bruce Allen received a package earlier this week all the way from Belgium. Inside lay the hat, still in decent shape, and a letter from the same fan who stole it during the New Year’s game jubilation.

Watch the segment from “Redskins Nation” above for the incredible full story.

New defensive backs coach Perry Fewell grew up in North Carolina, but there wasn’t any Panthers gear hanging on his wall.

Instead, Fewell, who appeared on “Redskins Nation” Thursday with Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, said an autographed picture of legendary quarterback Sonny Jurgensen hung instead.

“Growing up in North Carolina, the Redskins were North Carolina’s team before the Carolina Panthers,” Fewell said. “So, I have a picture of Sonny Jurgensen back in my parents’ home from way back when. Deep down inside, we’ve always been Redskins.”

Fewell grew up in Cramerton, N.C., and was a four-year letterman playing football at Lenoir-Rhyne College where he was named the most improved player during his senior year.

He was inducted into his alma mater’s Hall of Fame in 2011.

And even though Fewell’s coaching path would lead him to defense, as a boy, he enjoyed watching some of the best passers in the game.

“I was the offensive guy back then during that time so obviously Sonny, Joe Theismann – I was a big Joe Theismann fan,” Fewell said. “It was just Redskins city.”

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.

_ _ _

Yesterday on “Redskins Nation,” new offensive line coach Bill Callahan sat down with Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, to talk about his excitement for the upcoming season.

The conversation allowed Callahan to recall some of his knowledge about the Redskins, specifically as it pertained to offensive line coach/coordinator Joe Bugel, who, in his first stint with the Redskins, was in charge of the “The Hogs,” the impressive core of Redskins offensive linemen.

“I used to come out to Carlisle [Penn.] in the mid-80s and watch Joe Bugel coach ‘The Hogs,'” Callahan said. “Yeah, it was great. What a great experience that was. Just watching those linemen develop. Now to be here, try to uphold that tradition. I’m really honored by that.”

Well, here’s some more Joe Bugel nostalgia.

Check out this photo, taken Nov. 21, 1982, of Bugel talking shop with his O-linemen, which include Jeff Bostic (No. 53), Russ Grimm (left), Fred Dean (No. 63) and Joe Jacoby (right), among a few others in the background.

The conversation looks important, considering Dean’s expression, and was likely taken during halftime.

The Redskins were playing in their first game since the 57-day players’ strike had ended, facing, and ultimately defeating, the New York Giants, 27-17 in the league’s abbreviated nine game regular-season.

Is it just me, or does Bugel look a little like Callahan in this shot?

In a sign of just how cold it’s been this winter, the Las Vegas area actually got snow the other day.

Yes, in the desert where the average high is 63 degrees in February, they actually had a few flakes come down.

While it wasn’t anything major, it was enough to send television crews out to talk to residents.

And the very first person Fox 5 interviewed was wearing a Redskins beanie. Check out the complete video here.

Also, since we’re on the topic of winter weather, the Washington, D.C., area got some snow as well this morning.

The Hangman is ready to share some wisdom with the younger generations.

On Monday, March 23 from 9:45 a.m.-11 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m., Pro Football Hall Of Famer Chris Hanburger will talk to students as part of the the Heart of a Hall of Famer character series.

The virtual series provides students the opportunity to interact and learn first-hand from legendary Gold Jackets on what it takes beyond athletic ability to achieve success on and off the football field.

A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, the most in Redskins’ history, Hanburger spent 14 years as a Redskin. He recorded 19 career interceptions and had three fumbles returned for touchdowns.

To get an idea of what this series is like, here’s video from Art Monk’s talk last November:
