“I could beat you with one hand tied behind my back.”

Well he didn’t have his hand around his back nor was it deprived of free range of motion, but remember that time Darrell Green proved he was the by far the NFL Fastest Man when he returned a punt 52 yards for a game-winning touchdown?

Or when a group of replacement players played so well that they’d later have Hollywood wanting to tell their story?

1987 was a great year for the Washington Redskins, capped off with a second Super Bowl victory in five years.

From the quarterback carousel to the dismantling of the Broncos in the Super Bowl XXII, the Redskins will welcome back the 1987 squad this weekend in a special halftime ceremony.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday post here are some select images from that season:

Throwback Thursday: Just 18 Plays

Throwback Thursday is one of my personal favorites of the week partially because I get to listen to 80’s music and not look like a weirdo, but also because it’s the perfect time to pluck a moment in Redskins history and relieve it here on the blog.

From a historical standpoint, when the Redskins and Broncos meet it’s nothing more than a regular season matchup between unfamiliar foes. Games don’t have the same aura around them like Redskins-Cowboys or Redskins-Giants. But, when you murmur the words ‘Redskins’ and ‘Broncos’ in the same sentence, you can’t help but crack a giant smile.

Super Bowl XXII defined one of the greatest runs in NFL history. Down 10-0 at the end of the first quarter to a team led by NFL MVP John Elway, the majority that picked the heavily favored Broncos were rejoicing.

Then during an 18-play span, a blizzard of epic proportions even for January opened up. Touchdown after touchdown, the Redskins offense berated the Broncos defense. Just like that a Lombardi Trophy that was destined for Denver rerouted to our Nation’s Capital.

Here is a YouTube video commemorating the greatest quarter in Super Bowl history:

The 25th Anniversary Of Super Bowl XXII

Posted by Alex Corddry on March 12, 2013 – 3:03 pm

It’s been 25 years since the Washington Redskins, put on an offensive clinic, and won Super Bowl XXII. Five possessions, 18 plays, 35 points and 356 yards, and it all happened in the second quarter. The Redskins turned a 10-0 first quarter deficit to John Elway and the Denver Broncos, into a 35-1o halftime lead.

It was because of Super Bowl MVP, Quarterback Doug Williams. There’s no doubt that the Redskins offense fed off of Williams precision. Williams completed 18-of-29 passes for 340 yards, with four touchdown passes. The decisive 42-10 victory on Jan. 31, 1988, was the Redskins’ second championship in five years.

Larry Michael spoke with all time great, Doug Williams, on Redskins Nation Tuesday, about an upcoming event, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Redskins victory in Super Bowl XXII.

Doug Williams Has New Deal At Grambling

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 19, 2012 – 11:13 am

Twenty-five seasons after he was named Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXII, former Redskins quarterback Doug Williams continues to have success coaching at his alma mater.

Williams, 56, on Monday was officially handed a new three-year contract at Grambling State University, where he left in 1978 as the school’s most prolific quarterback before guiding the team to several conference championships in two stints as head coach.

Tuesday, February 2: Ah, Media Day

Posted by Matt Terl on February 2, 2010 – 10:48 am

Well, it’s Super Bowl Media Day, when every reporter for every news outlet on Earth gets to ask really stupid questions of the players on the two Super Bowl squads. Should be even more scintillating now that it’s being broadcast live via TV, Twitter, NFL.com, and everything else.

But there are certain stories that need to be told at certain times every year, almost ritualistically. Like the Passover seder, or telling the story of Christmas, or watching Groundhog Day on Groundhog Day, only for football. If you’re a Redskins fan, that means that it’s time to go back to the Media Day before Super Bowl XXII, when Redskins quarterback Doug Williams wasn’t actually asked one of the stupidest questions of all time.

People came close, of course. Heck, it made up most of the opening four grafs of Paul Zimmerman’s game story in the post-game issue of Sports Illustrated:
