Relive all the greatest moments in Burgundy and Gold football history through newspaper headlines of the time with this fine piece of Redskins memorabilia: the Washington Redskins history book. With coverage beginning in 1937, the year the franchise moved to Washington and won its first NFL Championship, this personalised Redskins gift guides you through the decades, revisiting all the key moments from Griffith Stadium, the RFK Stadium and FedExField, right up until the present day.
The history of the Washington Redskins can probably be best described as a success sandwich with a filling of failure in the middle. From 1936 to 1945, the Skins posted ten winning seasons in a row, and went to six NFL Championship Games, winning two, both against the Chicago Bears. What followed was an incredible drought of a quarter of a century without a post-season. Only four winning seasons were registered during those 25 years. An upturn in fortunes marked the beginning of the 1970s, reaching the playoffs five years out of six under head coach George Allen, and making it to their first Super Bowl, a 14-7 loss to Miami in January 1973. Then: the most successful period in Redskins history. In the ten years between 1982 and 1991, Joe Gibbs led the Redskins to four Super Bowls, winning three.
