Favorite Redskins QB of all time

Postby redskins56 » Sun Jan 11, 2004 1:11 am

I know it is hard, and I do have great respect for those left off. Namely Billy Killmer, Stan Humphries, John Friez, and Heath Shuler... lol

Of the 5 however... Who is your favorite?

Gotta be Joey T for me. Was around for the Hogs era and was a lot of fun to watch.

Of these, I had to go with Joey T. I loved Riggins' era football and he was the man at the helm.

I do believe that if Doug was around he would have the strongest arm in the league today Cool

I don't necessarily disagree; however, I think Ramsey's arm may be a strong, if not stronger than Doug's.

And hopefully we'll be able to see how strong that arm is, as we will no longer have blocking schemes where a just-signed tight end is assigned to block Simeon Rice! :)

My vote is for Doug Williams, after falling on his tail after the snap while ten down to the Broncos, to blowing them out, one of the greatest emotional tunrarounds watching a game I've ever had. Doug will always hold a special place for me.

That's the way I look at it too. It was more the team I loved than the QB... but at that time Joey T. was taking the snaps :P

Exactly. Besides, while I loved watching Joe T and the early 80's 'Skins, I can't vote for a guy who changed the pronunciation of his last name to rhyme with 'Heisman' as my favorite QB. Even if the name does bring up good memories.

I agree with most people - Theismann for me. My folks moved to DC for two years in 1980, that's how an Englishman like myself found the game.

As you all know, 1980 was the end of the Pardee era, followed by Gibbs Part One. That's my favourite time and probably always will be.

With St. Joe returning, it's inspired me to dust off my old Redskins videos, Hog Day Afternoon, 1981-84, and the games I taped once they started being shown over here in England.

Glory Days!
