Washington Redskins

WASHINGTON REDSKINS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 Washington Redskins Football Preview:

The Washington Redskins have been a continual thrill ride under owner Daniel Synder, and the 2009 season should be no exception. Head Coach Jim Zorn returns to lead a very talented group of players. The big new addition for the Skins is Pro Bowl defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth. Haynesworth was one of the top players in the NFL in 2008 and will immediately make the Redskins defense tougher. Joining him are Washington defenders London Fletcher and Fred Smoot. If the defensive talent gels, they could be scary good in 2009. On offense Jason Campbell is leading the charge along with running back Clinton Portis and wide receiver Santana Moss. Synder has once again spent big on his Washington Redskins, but it looks like 2009 could be the year that he gets a huge return on his investment. If the Skins play up to their potential they could be headed to the Super bowl in Miami.

The Washington redskins play football in the East Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The Redskins franchise was founded in 1932 as the Boston Football Braves in Boston, Massachusetts. The team would move to Washington D.C. as the Redskins in 1937. After some early success, the team lapsed into a long drought that lasted until the 1970′s under George Allen and then Joe Gibbs in the 1980′s. Gibbs would win 3 Super Bowls before his first retirement from the Redskins. Gibbs would return to Washington as coach in 2004. Some of the great players to wear the red and white include John Riggins, Sonny Jurgensen, Sammy Baugh, Joe Theisman, and Art Monk.

The Washington Redskins play their home games at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. The stadium is the largest in the NFL, holding nearly 92,000 fans and has sold out every game since its opening. This makes for a large and loud crowd on game day. Football fans will relish the experience of seeing a Cowboys-Redskins game at FedEx Field and witness one of the great rivalries in sports.
