Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Washington Football Team.
The Washington Football Team can be traced back to 1932 where they originally the Boston Braves, a nickname that existed one year, before they became the Boston Redskins. They relocated to Washington, keeping the Redskins name in 1937, and they won the NFL Championship in both 1937 and 1942 on the strength of Sammy Baugh.
They struggled throughout the 1950s and 1960s, slowly reascending in the 1970s, and winning two Super Bowls in the 1980s (XVII & XXII) and a third in the early 90s (XXVI) on back of the Redskins Offensive Line, the famed “Hogs”.
Prior to the 2020 season, societal pressure caused them to dismiss the Redskins nickname.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019-20 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always, we announce our top five in this article. They are:
1. Sammy Baugh
5. Art Monk
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
Look for our more material coming soon!
As always we thank you for your support.
