Wounded Warriors Take Down NFL Alumni

For Tim Lang, just tossing the pigskin meant so much more than it used to.

Lang planted on his prosthetic right leg and hurled a few passes into a secondary of former professional football players Saturday as his Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team beat a squad made up of Redskins and NFL alumni in a flag football game at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.

“This is such a huge, significant step for so many of us guys,” said Lang, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps 124 Charlie Co. in Fallujah, Iraq.

“It’s a declaration that we’re okay. We’re all better. We’re not broke. We’re no longer even challenged. We’ve accepted our new life and we’re doing the things we used to do now. We’re loving life now.”

Redskins Historian: Super Bowl VII Redux

Super Bowl 72 Dolphins Football

The Redskins Historian

It was 40 years ago today that the Redskins appeared in the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl, squaring off against the undefeated AFC Champion Miami Dolphins.

The sun shined bright in the Los Angeles Coliseum on the fish, who scored two first-half touchdowns and relied on their no-name defense to stifle the Redskins’ offense.  It was a maddening day for the burgundy and gold, who failed to capitalize on scoring chances and once saw a sure TD pass by quarterback Billy Kilmer carom off the goal post.

Friday, February 5: Bruce Allen Hasn't Eaten Dessert Since Super Bowl VII

Posted by Matt Terl on February 5, 2010 – 10:08 am

One thing I get horribly sick of during Super Bowl week is the endless parade of retired NFL players circling media row, answering the same questions on EVERY sportstalk radio show under the sun. It’s like Groundhog Day for Barry Sanders, the one week of the year that he pokes his head out to see the sun, and I could not possibly be less interested in what he has to say or whatever product he’s selling.

Which isn’t to say that there aren’t some interesting guests. It’s always nice to hear from former Redskins, for example (and, to be fair, I imagine the Detroit fans get pretty excited for Barry Sanders), and it’s also good to hear what actual current players and front office types have to offer.

So I had no problem with new Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen making the circuit yesterday. He turned up at least twice on ESPN980, first on the John Thompson Show (which Gary Fitzgerald wrote about over at the Redskins.com mothership) and later on The Sports Reporters with Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin.

I’ll have more on Allen’s comments there later today (or you can listen yourself in the Corona Audio Vault), but he started off answering a question about the worst loss in Redskins history. And it was clear that — for him — there was no question: Super Bowl VII. That’s him after the game in the AP photo above right, head in his hands, a portrait of abject misery.

The Redskins lost to the Dolphins 14-7 that day, and it changed Bruce Allen’s life — and his diet — irrevocably. Read more »
