When will the NFL team Washington Redskins appear in a Super Bowl again?

Updated on September 13, 2013

The Washington Redskins have been in five Super bowls. The first one they appeared in was the one held in 1973. In that game, they lost. Their head coach was George Allen. Their quarterbacks were Bill Kilmer and Sonny Jurgensen. Their featured running back was Larry Brown.

The Redskins won their first Super Bowl in 1983. Their quarterback was Joe Theismann, and their featured running back was John Riggins. They were led by head coach Joe Gibbs.

It’s too bad that the Redskins weren’t able to be back-to-back champions in 1984. So far, seven franchises have done that. Anyways, their head coach was Joe Gibbs. Their featured running back was John Riggins. Their quarterback was Joe Theismann. They appeared in the Super Bowl, but they lost.

The Redskins appeared in the in the Super Bowl again in 1988. This time they won the game with Doug Williams as the quarterback. He replaced Jay Schroeder as the starting QB during the regular season. The Redskins also had Timmy Smith rushed for 204 yards with 2 touchdowns in that game. In the regular season, he only accumulated 126 yards. Their featured running back was George Rogers. Their head coach was Joe Gibbs.

The Redskins’ latest Super Bowl win happened in 1992. For that game, the head coach was Joe Gibbs. Their featured running back was Earnest Byner. Their quarterback was Mark Rypien.

To summarize, Joe Gibbs was 3-1 in the Super Bowls games that he appeared as the head coach for the Redskins. He also won the ultimate games with three different quarterbacks.

Owner Daniel Snyder

In 1999, Daniel Snyder bought the Redskins and Jack Kent Cooke Stadium (now FedExField) for $800 million. He constantly kept on signing players to large contracts in hopes that they were able to lead the franchise to a Super Bowl victory. He had a lot of difficulties in having players perform very well and at their high expectations. He has received plenty of criticisms for perpetually having subpar seasons from his players. They have only made to the playoffs four times since he bought the team. Moreover, the furthest they’ve been in the playoffs is the divisional game (2 times in 2000 and 2006).

Do you know how many men have worked for Daniel as a head coach? The answer is seven. He always get high-profile coaches to lead his players.

2012 Rookies

Quarterbacks Robert Griffin lll (1st round) and Kirk Cousins (4th) and running back Alfred Morris (6th) helped the Redskins in 2012 to reach the playoffs. Before that year, they last made the playoffs during the 2007-2008 season. As rookies, Robert and Alfred helped the offense to score 22 rushing touchdowns and 24 passing touchdowns. Not only they both made immediate impact with their athletic skills, they both seem to have very pleasant personalities. I noticed Robert is always smiling while Alfred has the attitude of being the low-key player and do the heavy duty tasks needed to get his job done. Moreover, they do have wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss. Robert could one day be one of the main stars of the NFL. It helps that his parents served in the U. S. Army.

Conclusion

NFL fans will see if head coach Mike Shanahan can lead the Redskins to a Super Bowl win just like he did in Denver. He had John Elway as the quarterback and Terrell Davis as the running back. Also, he has Kyle Shanahan as the offensive coordinator, Matt LaFleur as the quarterbacks coach, and Jim Haslett as the defensive coordinator.
