Before we overdose on Redskins nostalgia, it’s worth a mention that NFL.com’s blogger Adam Rank got involved in Grammy-fever, nominating the Redskins’ 1986 video “Thanks To The 12th Man” for Worst Sports Video Ever By A Team.
The video faces some stiff competition from Da Bears’ “Super Bowl Shuffle,” the Dolphins’ “Can’t Touch Us”, the Cowboys’ “Christmas in Dallas,” the Bengals’ “Who Dey Rap,” the Seahawks’ “Locker Room Rock,” and the LA Rams’ “Let’s Ram It.”
