Redskins Hall of Fame receiver Charley Taylor

Hall of Fame Redskins receiver Charley Taylor is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback." Taylor, who held the NFL all-time record for catches (649) before retiring after the 1977 season, shared his thoughts on the Redskins coming off a 29-26 loss to the Vikings on Nov. 2, 2014, that dropped them to 3-6. He spoke about the QB situation, with coach Jay Gruden opting to start RGIII over Colt McCoy in the Vikings' game, and the prolific performance by WR DeSean Jackson, who by then had topped 100 yards in five games that season, No. 1 in the league.

This interview also aired on the Redskins' web site on Nov. 8, 2014 at http://www.redskins.com/media-gallery/audio/Burgundy--Gold-Flashback-201...

EXCERPT

Forty years ago, on October 30, 1974, two American heavyweights slugged it out in Zaire - today's Democratic Republic of Congo — in a historic boxing match.

“The Rumble in the Jungle,” as the fight was advertised in the U.S. and abroad, matched former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali against the reigning champ, George Foreman. Ali knocked Foreman out to regain the
crown, which he had lost seven years earlier when the U.S. government accused him of draft-dodging and boxing officials revoked his license.

EXCERPT:

The Redskins took on the image of a cardiac squad in 1975.  They played in three overtime games, a record for a 14-game season, and competed in five that came down to the final play.

Such was the case when the 10-0 Vikings visited RFK Stadium on Nov. 30, 1975. The Redskins handed Minnesota its first loss, as defensive end Ron McDole blocked a field goal on the last play in regulation to preserve a 31-30 win.

Former Redskins guard Ron Saul

Former Redskins guard Ron Saul is Mike Richman's special guest on this episode of "Burgundy & Gold Flashback."  Saul, a Redskins guard from 1976-82 and one of the original "Hogs," collected a ring from the Redskins' win over the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII.   Described by the Redskins as a "tough, hard-nosed battler," he played with multiple injuries.  He appeared on the show after the Redskins' improbable 20-17 win over the Cowboys in a Monday night game at AT&T Stadium on Oct. 27, 2014.
