Hundreds of ecstatic Redskins fans packed into Lucky’s Pub near downtown Houston Saturday evening to rally the burgundy and gold to victory against the Texans in Sunday’s 2014 season opener.
The crowd was treated to appearances by Redskins owner Dan Snyder, President and general manager Bruce Allen and alums Ken Houston — a Hall of Famer — Ricky Sanders, Mike Thomas and Rick ‘Doc’ Walker.

[With the start of training camp just a few weeks away, we are taking a look back at some “under the radar” players from year past. Today I take a look back at the career of dual-threat running back Mike Thomas. While his career with the Washington Redskins only spanned four years, the impact that he left is still being talked about to this day.]
The success that Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris had as a rookie last year had us thinking about the last time the franchise had a rusher who made a big impact as rookie.
The younger generations of Redskins Nation probably aren’t familiar with any, but some older fans may remember a speedster from UNLV by the name of Mike Thomas who was called on to replace aging legend Larry Brown.
While most men would have crumbled under the pressure of being handed the reigns that were held by an icon like Brown, Thomas thrived–right from the start.
