Redskin All-Time Team Nominations - Left Guard

Postby DarthMonk » Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:15 pm

Taking nominations for left guard. I'll try to come to a consensus for the top 3 and then use the run-off method in a poll.

Historians please help sort these names in terms of left or right guard. If you know a guy played predominantly on the right side, please flag him. Remember, we need a starter and a back-up at every position.

If I missed someone important, please nominate.

Ray Schoenke
Paul Laaveg
Terry Hermeling

Save yourself the time, and just give it to Russ Grimm now. Move on to a position that is actually debatable.

Also, I need help sorting out the RIGHT guards from the left.

Thanks.

At least that was helpful.

I still need to know which of the guys on my list are right guards and not left. For some reason I thought May was predominantly a RT but whateva. I'll check that one.

Can some "old-timers" please help. I get the hole Grimm thing (duh) but we still need a back-up at LG and I need to know who belongs on the ballot.

Thanks.

Here's the list of guards, left and right and perhaps Mark May depending what I find concerning where he played most.

I got the original list off a site I found for Redskin rosters by year. I then cross checked against pro-footballreference.com and got this:

LGs:
Ray Schoenke
Paul Laaveg
Ron Saul
Russ Grimm
Ray Brown
Derrick Dockery
Kory Lichtensteiger

RGs:
Randy Thomas
*Raleigh McKenzie - spent 5 seasons each at LG, C, and RG !!!
*Tre Johnson - spent equal time at LG and RG

xTerry Hermeling - mostly a LT, only 2 years at RG
xFred Dean - gone

Mark May was predominantly a RT.

I need a consensus on the top 3 LGs so I can run a poll run-off style to establish the top 2 LGs (a starter and a back-up) in Redskin history. I lean (chronologically) toward ...

Ray Schoenke,
Russ Grimm, and
Ray Brown.


Unless I hear some strong arguments I'm gonna start the LG poll in a few days with these 3.

Grimm by a mile, Thomas next. What is Dockery doing up there? Lichtensteiger?
