Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Nobody else got around Jacoby, and Big Joe played so long that he started at LT, RT, and G, I think.
How many tackles, other than Lachey and Mark May, were nearly as good as Jacoby during his time?
That's the question: who else?
NO ONE PERIOD.......

As someone that has seen them both play I can tell you Jacoby was better.
From a pure gallant stand point Lachey was better than with, but Lachey's career want long enough.

I'll always remember a quote from Joe Bugel about Jacoby (from an an old VHS tape about the '87 Championship season) where he referred to him as "Interstate 66" because wherever he was going, the backs where following.
