History

Greatest Redskins

#7 Joe Theismann
Quarterback
1974-85
 

Fourth-round draft selection of the Miami Dolphins in 1971, out of Notre Dame… Elected to play for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League early in his pro career… The Redskins traded a first-round draft choice to the Dolphins in 1974 and Theismann became a Washington Redskin. Holds a number of team records including most career pass attempts (3,602); most career pass completions (2,044); and most consecutive passes without an interception (162)… He is also the Redskins’ all-time passing yardage leader with 25,206 total… Led the Redskins to the Super Bowl XVII win, and a return visit to the Championship in 1983… Pro Bowler in both 1982 and 83. Most proud of bringing Washington a Super Bowl Championship and having played his entire NFL career with the Redskins… Cites Joe Namath and his father, Joe, as his greatest inspirations. Pre-game rituals included eating a banana split the night before a game, eating scrambled eggs and pancakes for breakfast the day of a game, driving to games with Dave Butz and Mark Moseley, reading People Magazine cover to cover in the locker room, and being the last player to get his ankles taped. Most admired teammate was Art Monk: “If anyone could spend a day with Art Monk, their life would be improved. He was Jerry Rice before there was Jerry Rice.” … After retiring from football, entered the broadcast booth for CBS and then ESPN… Has worked with the ESPN Sunday Night broadcast crew… Also was a motivational speaker… Has written three books, including “The Idiots Guide to Understanding Pro Football.”
