What a cynical bunch we are. One person posts a list of his favorite all-time Redskins, and the thread instantly turns into a discussion of our all-time greatest free agent busts.

I see these top 10 threads from time to time but I never see anyone mention Dave Butz.

"Butz was drafted in the first round (fifth overall) of the 1973 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals, where he would play for two seasons. He then played for the Washington Redskins for 14 years, where he had three Super Bowl appearances. He was a one time Pro Bowler in 1983 in a season in which he got eleven sacks, a career best. He only missed four games in his entire 16-year career.[1] Butz was among the largest players in the NFL when he played standing 6'8" and routinely weighing around 300 pounds. When he retired, he was the oldest starting player in the NFL.[3]

Butz was selected to the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team and was named one of the 70 Greatest Redskins."

John Riggins

I will also add that I think Sean Taylor would currently be thought of as one of the greatest to ever wear the Burgundy and Gold today. He really was that good and our best draft pick in the last decade, if not last two decades.

Riggins - Gibbs put the offense on this guys back and that was the beginning of a dynasty. You think 1 play in Redskins history and it is Riggins running over Dolphins.

Jurgensen (I read we would have beaten Miami if Jurgensen wasn't in Allen's dog house)

4. Riggo(First of the big and fast RBs)
5. Huff(Greatest LB in skins' history)


Nice list. I got two points I would like to make.
1. Jim Brown was a little bit heavier than Riggo and was much faster. I would say he was the 1st of the big and fast RBs.
2. IMO Huff had his greatest years in New York. I think one could argue that Chris Hanburger was the greatest LB in Skins history.

I am inclined to agree with this. Huff was a great LB, but he wasn't a great Redskins LB even though he chose to go into the HOF as a Redskin (which had more to do with his bitterness over being traded).

I would also argue with putting Mann over Manley and citing Sacks as the reason, when Dexter is still the franchise record holder in sacks.

It has always been my understanding that an NFL player doesn't actually have to choose a team when being inducted into the HOF, since the bust only includes their face and no markings of an actual team. In fact, the HOF site lists all of the teams they played for and not just one.

Brown was the prototype, but it was over a decade between when he played and when Riggins took the Csonka mold and added real breakaway speed in the open field.

2. IMO Huff had his greatest years in New York. I think one could argue that Chris Hanburger was the greatest LB in Skins history.

I never watched either outside of clips, but I've never heard anyone who watched them both play(anyone's who's opinions I respect) say that Hanburger was even close to Huff in terms of play(most think that Hanburger shouldn't have made the HOF and never was the best defender on any Skins' team he played on). I think the fact that Huff only played a few years at the end of his career and is seen as a true legend for the Skins(just for his play with the Skins) speaks volumes about how good he was here.

Which is how the Redskins are able to list David Deacon Jones as a Redskins hall of famer, lol.

I can't argue with your list.

10 was the hardest for me. It was tough to leave off Butz, Dexter, Mann, & Wilbur Marshall. I can make arguments in support of all 4 over Larry Brown, but I settled with #43

Maybe that's Snyder's ultimate strategy: sign as many great players in various parts of their career so that he can claim dozens of hall of famers down the line?

Yeah, there could be some 10a, 10b and 10c votes in there. I would lean towards Brown because he was NFL MVP.

He was by far the best nickle back in the league in 2001 and 2002. Not bad for a guy in his 18th and 19th years.

I see my namesake Chris Hanburger keeps getting slighted, even during the month he makes the HOF.

Your list is good, but I would put CH in place of Dexter Manley or Bobby Mitchell.

In that case, toss Brunell up there as well. lol

There is something to be said about consistancy...and Tanaman doesn't have it. He can look like Marvin Harrison on one play and "lose it" mentally on the next play.

That is why I like listing someone like Ethan Albright...who was perfect in his position for the entire decade. Games can be lost on bad snaps and we never had to worry about that.
