Who are the Washington Redskins?

The Redskins compete as members of the national football conference (NFC), East division. Their headquarters is located at Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park in Ashburn, and their training facility at Redskins complex in Richmond – both in Virginia. FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland serves as the home ground for the team.

The team manager is Jay Gruden, who is currently in his fifth season with the Redskins. He is the 29th head coach in franchise history. A former decorated quarterback in the college and a successful NFL assistant, Gruden is known for his offensive acumen and has led the Redskins to some memorable records.

In 2015, he led the Redskins to an NFC East Championship, achieving a 9-7 record to complete the second “worst-to-first” turnaround in team history. He joined Dudley DeGroot, Dutch Bergman, George Allen, Joe Gibbs and Ray Flaherty in leading the team to a playoff berth within the first two years as coach. In 2016, he guided the franchise to back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1996-97, achieving an 8-7-1 record.

Team History

Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves, the team is one of the NFL’s oldest franchises. They changed their name to the Redskins in 1933 and four years later, relocated to Washington D.C. The team won the first of its five World Championships in that same season. The team has won three Super Bowls – in 1982, 1987 and 1991 and are regarded as one of most dominant teams in the NFL over the past quarter-century.

The Redskins became the first NFL team to have an entire season televised in 1950 as all their games were televised over a network of southern stations. The team moved to the D.C. Stadium (later known as Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium) in 1961 and the 55, 000+ capacity stadium became the Redskins home up until 1996. The Redskins moved into the new FedEx Field in 1997.

Team success

Under the tutelage of the legendary Vince Lombardi, the Redskins became champions for the first time in a decade and half in 1969. However, Vince passed away just before the 1970 season began, and George Allen was appointed in his stead. The new coach steered the Redskins to 69 wins and five playoff appearances, capping the outstanding run with the 1972 NFL championship during a space of seven years. He was deservedly inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2002.

But perhaps the most celebrated coach in the history of the Redskins is Joe Gibbs who led the team between 1981 and 1992. His achievements include Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI wins, five NFC Eastern division championships and a record of 140 to 65-0, including a total of eight playoff appearances. Expectedly, he was named the coach of the year for 1982 and 1983 at the end of the season league awards, and subsequently elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1996. He returned for another stint as the head coach in 2004, and led the team for three consecutive seasons.

Riggins greatest success was in the postseason. In a victory of 27 to 17 for the Redskins over the Miami Dolphins at Super Bowl XVII, Riggins rushed for 166 yards and scored one touchdown. He was named the most valuable player (MVP). In 1992, Riggins was inducted into the Pro Football Hall.
