Redskins Legacy: `05 Rams Win Sparks Streak

EXCERPT:

The Redskins were all but buried, written off by many in the sports media with five games left in the 2005 season.

Having suffered three straight maddening losses by a total of 10 points, the 5-6 squad appeared destined for its sixth consecutive non-playoff season.  But these Redskins proved to be special and resilient.  They reeled off five straight wins to finish 10-6 and earn a wild card spot.

The streak began with a 24-9 win over the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on Dec. 3, 2005.

Former Redskins cornerback Mike Bass

Former Redskins cornerback Mike Bass is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback."  Bass speaks mostly about his memorable career in D.C., where he intercepted 30 passes, many of them during the Redskins' dominant seasons in the 1970s, and about his 49-yard fumble return for a touchdown in Super Bowl VII.  He tells the amazing story of how he was already friends with the Dolphins kicker who infamously fumbled the ball, Garo Yepremian.  Bass also talks about how he was inspired early in his career by legendary coach Vince Lombardi.

This interview also aired on the Redskins' web site on Dec. 4, 2014 at http://www.redskins.com/media-gallery/audio/Burgundy--Gold-Flashback-201...

Redskins Legacy: Redskins Upset Mighty Colts

EXCERPT:

Sunday's opponent, the Indianapolis Colts, make its home in Baltimore for three decades before beginning play in the Midwest in 1984.

When the franchise was in Baltimore, not much of a rivalry existed between the Colts and the Redskins, who played in different divisions in the NFL and in separate conference after the NFL-AFL merger in 1970.

Plus, their head-to-head clashes were mostly one-sided, with the Colts prevailing in 15 of 20 games.

One of Washington's five wins, however, stands as one of the most improbable performances in team history.

Former Redskins WR Roy "Sweat Pea" Jefferson

Former Redskins WR Roy Jefferson is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback." Jefferson, known as "Sweat Pea," was a dynamic threat for the Redskins from 1971-76, catching 208 passes for 3,119 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.  With the 3-7 Redskins in a free-fall (three straight losses), Jefferson shares his thoughts on the team's troubling QB situation with RGIII and whether Griffin's first coach in D.C., Mike Shanahan, got a raw deal by being fired after four seasons.  Jefferson also discusses his NFL career playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Colts (where he earned a Super Bowl ring) and, of course, the Redskins.
