Throwbacks: Joe Gibbs coaches wide receivers in 1990


(Photo by Margaret Thomas - from the archives.)
Last Wednesday, the great Sports Illustrated Twitter feed @si_vault decided to post 21 terrific Washington D.C. sports photos throughout the day. This led Mister Irrelevant — the premier premiere arbiter of taste in the D.C. sports blogosphere — to do a post on the five best D.C. sports photos from the SI vault.

And this led us here at Bog HQ to start combing The Post’s photo vault for similar treasures. Well, my boss Lindsay did the work, anyhow. I’m just going to post the treasures found therein.

We will do this throughout the summer, because it’s awesome. And easy.

Here’s the first entry. It’s from a 1990 May minicamp, and it features Joe Gibbs demonstrating the key tenets of wide receiver play while Paul Smith, Art Monk, Percy Waddle and others look on.

Note especially the Posse shirt. And the socks.

Please include your wishlist for future photos below.
