NFL America's Game: Washington Redskins

Head Coach Joe Gibbs led Washington Redskins to three Super Bowls wins in 11 years. He used the same formula each time - a huge offensive line, a power-running game, and a quick, athletic defensive - but he did it with three different men at quarterback.

A players' strike shortened the NFL season to 9 games in 1982 leaving teams scrambling to reach the playoffs. Most clubs were rusty after the layoff, but Gibbs kept Redskins focused. In Super Bowl XVII, it was Joe Theismann who led Washington to victory over the Miami Dolphins.

In 1987, Gibbs told Doug Williams that he was being traded to the Raiders but reconsidered just hours later. In Super Bowl XXII Doug Williams' made Gibbs' decision a brilliant one as his passing produced an amazing 35 points in the second quarter alone and he was named the games MVP.

Five years later, Gibbs took note of Mark Rypien's ability to throw an accurate, deep pass which, combined with the speed of wide receivers Art Monk, Ricky Sanders and Gary Clark, helped lead the Redskins to victory over the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI.

The story of the 1982 Redskins is told by Theismann, Guard Russ Grimm and Tight End Rick Walker. Williams, Center Jeff Bostic and Cornerback Darrell Green recount the 1987 Redskins' season. And Hall of Fame Coach, Joe Gibbs, Rypien and Defensive End Charles Mann retell the tale of the 1991 Redskins.
