“That’s championship football. Anybody want to ask me what championship football is, it’s winning up front, offense and defense. The last time the Redskins had a dominating offensive line and defensive line, they won the championship, [with] the big Hogs and Charles Mann and the rest of those guys. Right now, they’re putting together a group that can win ballgames. See, we’ve always had the flashy names, the Fred Smoots, the Clinton Portises. But right now we’ve got old-fashioned football players, and right now, they’re playing Redskins football.”

On The Redskins Victory over the Cardinals
This quote comes from a great article by Dan Steinberg over at DC Sports Bog on why the current players think they are winning. Even former Redskins are noticing the changes and that's a good thing. Fred Smoot saw much of the rare good and frequent bad times of the last decade plus of the Snyder owned Redskins. If he thinks the Skins are a better team now than when he was a Redskin.......it's a pretty good sign don't you think?
