In an online chat Thursday, former Post reporter Richard Justice remembered the 1991-92 Redskins, who won the Super Bowl 20 years ago this week. Justice was the beat reporter covering the team that year.
“I was right there and couldn’t tell how good [a team] it was. If you look at the numbers now, it was a great team. But it really was a team. It wasn’t one or two Hall of Famers. Their best offensive player was Gary Clark, their best defensive player Wilbur Marshall. But the strength of the team was rotating guys into positions where they were put in position to succeed. Geathers had an incredible year. Those two tackles Charley acquired, Tim Johnson and Eric Williams, stepped right in and did great work. Rypien was spectacular throwing the deep ball. It just all worked.”
