SHTICK: A Skins number that SHOULD be retired

Postby REDEEMEDSKIN » Tue Jun 01, 2004 4:56 pm

One of the enigmas in the current Redskins roster is one Clifford Russell, the speedy WR we drafted a few years ago. He has/had great promise, but injuries and an apparent lack of skill have rendered him useless.

I was thinking that it might not really be his fault. He's wearing #82!!!!! Westbrook's old number. Did Westy ruin the number??? If so, why not retire/burn the number??!! I can't remember too far back in Skins history, so I'll rely on the history buffs to see if we've had any #82s that may have had success. Though we do not currently "retire" numbers, I propose we rid ourselves of this jersey number. Michael was a bust, Cliff is going down the same route. Change Cliffy's number and his production will soar. Otherwise he's another bust. What do you all think?

I voted "no" because we don't have enough numbers to go around. Don't be surprised when the Skins start using 82.1, 82.2, 82.3, etc.!

:lol: That was funny, but, oh, so true. Now, I wish M.W. woulda never come to this team. But, as for the #82s the Redskins have had, who stands out (as far as production and bringing pride to the uniform)?

I heard Joe Gibbs was impressed with Cliff's speed in minicamp. He is a legitimate deep threat when he catches the ball.
