Inside Sonny’s Office: Jurgensen On Kirk Cousins, Tony Romo And Dallas Week

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 20, 2013 – 4:55 pm

Sonny Jurgensen visits Redskins Park on Fridays and receives guests in his honorary office, a black leather couch in the lobby. There’s even a nameplate. I like to stop by and ask Sonny a few quick questions about quarterbacks and matchups. This week’s brief chat covered his impressions of Kirk Cousins’ start in Atlanta, his thoughts on Tony Romo and his recollection of playing the Cowboys.

Gabe Hiatt: What sticks out to you from your memories of playing the Dallas Cowboys?

Sonny Jurgensen: They were a very good football team when they had Tom Landry as their coach. It was always a challenge to us, and we enjoyed the challenge. We could score 30 points and lose, 31-30. They were good games, competitive games. We won our share.

Series History: Cowboys Redskins

You know the deal.

If you were clothed in burgundy and gold diapers, you were raised to despise the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas Week always presents a reason to get fired up. Here’s a comprehensive look at the history of the rivalry. Read more »

Series History: Redskins Falcons

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 13, 2013 – 11:15 am

Bobby Mitchell did everything he could.

The flanker threw a successful 17-yard pass, handled 17 carries for  39 yards and caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Sonny Jurgensen to give the Redskins a three-point lead over the the Falcons in the fourth quarter on Oct. 15, 1967.

But Mitchell didn’t kick. Washington missed the extra point after his scoring catch, and the Falcons tied the contest at 20 on a 31-yard field goal from Wade Traynham. Mitchell finished the day with 114 yards receiving but had to accept a 20-20 tie in the second ever meeting between Atlanta and Washington.

The Redskins are 15-7-1 all-time against the Falcons. Read more »

Inside Sonny’s Office: No More Grudges

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 15, 2013 – 5:06 pm

Sonny Jurgensen roams Redskins Park on Fridays, posting up in his honorary office, a black leather couch in the lobby. There’s even a nameplate. Ever the opportunist, I like to visit with Sonny and solicit some blog material. This week’s brief chat covered his Philadelphia memories,  what the Redskins need to do in Week 11 and his thoughts on Nick Foles.

The old chip on his shoulder crumbled to pieces at some point.

In 1964, Philadelphia didn’t want Sonny Jurgensen. He made the Eagles pay.

Jurgensen looks at the game today and sees too many differences to hold a grudge. Shibe Park and Franklin Field no longer host NFL games.

When Jurgensen thinks of Philadelphia now, he thinks of visiting Tommy McDonald and looks back at one of the strangest days he had in an Eagles uniform.

Trade Between Rivals Favored Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 14, 2013 – 12:57 pm

sonny-jurgensen

Why would you ever trade a 24-year old quarterback who’s best years were ahead of him and was the No. 2 overall pick just three years earlier for a quarterback who was turning 30 years old before the upcoming season and wasn’t getting any younger?

Because that 30-year old would produce magical season after magical season en route to enshrinement in Canton.

This swap of course is the one involving Norm Snead and Sonny Jurgensen. In the pantheon of most lopsided trades in sports history along with the Babe going to New York from Boston and the Warriors sending Wilt the Stilt out the door, the Redskins picked the Eagles’ pocket clean.

Determined to show them an “old man” can still man a team even after joining the 3o Club, Jurgensen had one of the greatest individual performances in NFL history in his first game against the team that drafted him.

Series History: Redskins Eagles

Robert Griffin III was a question mark, untested with no preseason experience. Chip Kelly stood on the sidelines wearing a darker shade of green.

In the 157th meeting between the Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles, a Week 1 marquee matchup on Monday Night Football showcased two of the most prominent NFL story lines from the summer of 2013.

How would RGIII fare in his first game action since rehabilitating a surgically reconstructed right knee? How effective would Chip Kelly’s quick-strike Oregon offense be in the NFL?

Inside Sonny’s Office: RGIII and Rivers

Like many of us here at Redskins park, Sonny Jurgensen has an open-air office without walls.

The former Redskins quarterback and longtime radio commentator doesn’t have a cubicle. He posts up in a couch in the back of the lobby, conversing with whoever comes by.

I met Sonny today and took the opportunity to ask him some quarterback questions.

For instance, what difference does he see between Robert Griffin III and Philip Rivers?

An Ode To The Career of Sonny Jurgensen

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 16, 2013 – 4:18 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

[With nine days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at a unique, fond farewell to Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen following his retirement in 1974. ]

After a disappointing 1963 season that saw the Washington Redskins finish below .500 for the seventh consecutive year, changes were a must.

Step one—trading for a successful quarterback who had future Hall of Famer written all over him.

In a move that Eagles fans most assuredly wish was a simple April Fools’ Day joke, the NFC East foes swapped quarterbacks in perhaps the most lopsided trade in NFL history.

Over the next decade, Jurgensen supplied Redskins Nation with a bevy of memorable moments to include four Pro Bowl appearances. His spiral was a thing of elegant beauty and after hanging up his helmet following the 1974 season was written this poem by Sir Fredrick of Austin.

Norm Snead’s Stint, Monumental Trade

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 9, 2013 – 2:51 pm

[With 16 days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at the career of quarterback Norm Snead. Snead, spent three years with the Washington Redskins after being taken with the second overall pick in the 1961 NFL Draft.]

Last year when the Washington Redskins selected former Heisman-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in the draft, he joined Norm Snead as the only quarterbacks picked at the two slot in franchise history.

Griffin III’s debut season was one for the record books, as his play on the field reignited Redskins Nation’s proverbial roar and his “likeability factor” off it lead to him being one of the most marketed players in the NFL. Don’t forget he set the record for most jerseys sold too.

Transitioning to the speed of the professional game from the college form where a majority of players peak and then spend the rest of their lives outside of the game isn’t easy. Despite the fact that the adaptation period for the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year seemed nonexistent, most rookie still struggle to acclimate to the NFL at first.

While Snead’s three-year career didn’t exactly live up to the expectations innately placed on top-five selections, his play did lead to two Pro Bowl appearances—and the acquisition of a Hall of Famer.

No Matter Who Was At Helm, Smith Thrived

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 6, 2013 – 1:00 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Over the next few weeks we will be looking back on some Redskins greats for their heroics on the field as well as off of it. Today, Redskins.com intern Jamie Lockie looks back at the long career of Jerry Smith. 

One of the most recognizable and popular Redskins players of his era, Jerry Smith was knowingly one of the best football players around.

Thirsty six years ago this season, he’s remains a player who vastly improved the Redskins’ image and still remains one of the greatest in Burgundy and Gold history and remains one of only 44 in franchise history, coaches and officials included, in the Ring of Fame.
