The fit: The scouts liked his decision making in the pocket and his coaches and teammates praised his leadership. That combination of talents make him an ideal backup quarterback.

On May 15, 1973, Redskins coach George Allen traded five players to the Houston Oilers for Ken Houston, a five-time Pro Bowler and one of the NFL’s premier safeties.

Rypien was NFL MVP in 1991 and won a Super Bowl with the Redskins.

 

If the NFC East’s 1′s on offense were kidnapped, which team’s 2′s in the NFCE would be able to score? – Blogging the bEast

The Cowboys probably have the best QB/RB combo in Kyle Orton and Felix Jones… but after that they have nothing.  The Eagles would actually have a receiving corps that might be better than a few teams’ starters, but their QB/RB combo is weak.  The Giants would have the most inexperience with 3 rookies.  And finally, the Redskins… The Redskins’ 2′s look very similar to their 1′s of a year ago.  None of these teams would be able to block anybody.  Note: I didn’t include a FB. Went with 3 WR’s instead, an used the 3, 4, and 5 for each team.
