Yes, There Will Be A Sammy Baugh Tribute Sunday

baughsmiling1

I haven’t yet been able to find out the specifics, but there will definitely be some sort of tribute to the late Sammy Baugh at this week’s game. I had hoped to have more details before posting about this, but the number of emails became overwhelming enough that this was the quickest way to answer the basic question. If and when I hear more, I’ll let you know.

And, if you’d still like to read even more about Baugh’s remarkable exploits, Rich Tandler recounts the story of one of his best games.

EDIT TO ADD: There’s a video up at Redskins.com of old NBC-4 interviews that Sonny Jurgensen conducted with Baugh, two Redskins greats talking football, that make for very interesting viewing. It’s the top video on the Sammy Baugh Tribute page, so give it a look.

  1. Wow! No comment all weekend….so I’ll just say lets go Skins. Lets get one for the Burgundy and Gold. For what Baugh and Taylor represented. May have lost the war but lets f them up in these final battles. Put some fear in these teams. Yea we wasted our season…didn’t intemidate a piece of crap all year….but that’s not Redskins football. Mr. Snyder, get us to play Redskins football in 09.

  2. Upset against Phili !!!!!!!!!! I had a dream that clinton rushed for 136 yards and ran in two touchdown. JC threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns and the skins broke the 29 point mark.

    I am usually right when I dream about this things, then again it might just be a dream.

    GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
