Redskins Legacy: Montana, 49ers Fall in 1986


Everything pointed to an exciting matchup when the 8-2 Redskins hosted the 6-3-1 49ers in a Monday night game at RFK Stadium on Nov. 17, 1986.

You had the NFC's two winningest teams since 1981 and the winners of eight Super Bowls from the early-1980s to the mid-1990s.  Toss in playoff fever, two of the league's most potent offenses and the return of 49ers quarterback Joe Montana -- who was starting his second game after having back surgery to remove a ruptured disk two months prior.

Legendary Redskins QB Joe Theismann

Famous Redskins QB Joe Theismann is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback."  The always-opinionated Theismann evaluates a 3-7 Redskins team with two straight losses, most recently an embarrassing 27-7 disappearing act against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Nov. 16, 2014.  He opines on the Redskins' precarious QB situation, with RGIII coming off a terrible performance against the Bucs (23-32, 207 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs, 73.3 rating) and showing what coach Jay Gruden called "fundamental flaw," and is asked if he stands by his preseason comments that Kirk Cousins should be starting over Griffin, for one, because he has better awareness as a pocket passer.

Redskins Legacy: RG3 Sparks Win Over Bucs


Since the late 1990s, the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have engaged in a mini-rivalry, despite playing in different divisions.

They've split their last 12 meetings, 11 of which have been decided by seven or fewer points, with three one-point games and one victory apiece in playoff clashes.  True to form, their last encounter on Sept. 30, 2012, was a thriller.  After three earlier misses, Billy Cundiff hit a 41-yard field goal with three seconds left for a 24-22 Redskins win.

Former Redskins receiver Virgil Seay is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback."  Seay, a Redskin from 1981-84, talks about his distinction as one of "The Smurfs," the Redskins' trio of pint-sized receivers at the time.   He also compares and contrasts first-year Redskins coach Jay Gruden with Joe Gibbs, whose first season with the Redskins was in 1981, and shares his thoughts on the 3-6 Redskins as they prepare to exit their bye week with a game against Tampa Bay on Nov. 16, 2014.
