Q:Who is your favorite player ever to wear the burgundy and gold?  
A: Wow! Umm! I’m going with Gary Clark...Ok! I know your readers are going to question that, seeing as I could have gone with Art Monk or Darrell Green. In fact, I used to like John Riggins, the “Riggo Ranger.” How many of your readers remember Lil’ Joe Washington?

Q: What’s your most memorable Redskins moment? 
A: Doug Williams winning the Super Bowl over Denver...That was easy...He was the first black quarterback to win the big game! History!

Q: If you were Daniel Snyder, what would you do to make the Skins a Super Bowl contender?
A: Stop running the team like a fantasy football team owner. Let your coach, coach! And let the general manager do his job and MAN- Can we get a decent quarterback?
