And we were up in the closer at Philly when Joe pulled the starters because the Eagles in their always classy ways were talking about how they wanted to hurt as many of our guys as they could to keep us from winning the Super Bowl.

Yet, you never hear about that 1991 team.

Doing a search of "best NFL team of all time", on the first page I get lists that have the '91 Skins ranked at:

#4 http://espn.go.com/page2/s/list/football/teams/greatest.html

#8 http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/top-nfl-teams-of-all-time.asp

#4 http://bleacherreport.com/articles/371657-the-25-greatest-nfl-teams-of-all-time-super-bowl-era

#4 http://www.watchmojo.com/top_10/lists/sports/football/football_nfl_best_teams_all_time.htm

#6 http://www.bukisa.com/articles/183742_best-nfl-teams-of-all-time-top-10-greatest-football-squads-counted-down

So, I don't get where this perception that the '91 team is disrespected comes from. I personally think that the '91 Skins team was the best of Gibbs 1.0. However, I believe the '91 team tends to be a little more forgotten about among Skins fans in comparison to the other Gibbs I teams because we didn't have that signature victory on the way to the SB. The '82 team had the NFCCG win against the Cowboys. The '83 team beat the 49ers in the same round. And the '87 team beat the Bears in Soldier Field with the memorable Darrell Green punt return.

Atlanta and Detroit? Not so much. Of course, the Redskins could only play who was in front of them, and beat those teams in pretty convincing fashion. And when they did make it to the Metrodome, they did play a Bills team who was making a repeat appearance and would make two more after that. And laid waste to Buffalo.

I'm not a big hockey fan, but its interesting in light of the current excitement surrounding the Caps. If they do go on to win the Cup this season, it will be memorable just for the fact that it'll be the first championship for the team. However, I think it'll be all the more sweeter if you get to beat longtime rivals like Pittsburgh and Philly along the way instead of, say, Montreal or Buffalo.
