Redskin All-Time Team Poll - QB

Postby DarthMonk » Tue Jul 03, 2012 6:36 pm

I hereby lobby for Jurgy so Baugh can punt and back up at both safety and QB. Only other nominee was Theismann.

Please vote.

Theisman gets my vote. Baugh doesn't impress me and Sonny was so pissed at me one time he rode over on his segway and scolded me at Redskins Park.
Support the troops, especially our snipers.

Voted for #9. As I said in another post, I thought numbers would be closer for #7.....but Jurgey received far more meaningful accolades for QB in his career than did Theismann. But, I still have a #7 jersey and believe that he is one of our Redskin greats.

Has to be Baugh. He revolutionized football. Without Baugh, there would never have been Jurgy or Theisman (or Brady, Manning, etc.)

I probably need a history lesson, being only 26, but I voted for Joey...
I think he was the better passer of the three, I know flailing ducks still work to this day I.e. Tebow, but I think Joey had the best arm. Another factor for me is watching that crushing hit from LT over and over geeze laweeze.. To this day of I see a brutal leg injury I'm like holy @&85 he just got Theismanned!
#21 forever in our hearts
...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

My thinking, also.

Sonny was the best passer I have ever seen, and best I ever expect to see.

I never saw Sammy, but I agree that the player who made the "bullet" pass an offensive weapon, who created the passing game, has to be number one.

If u recall flailing duck throws, those were probably from billy kilmer vice sonny. Kilmer was known to throw a wobbler......i recall watching many of those.....

Yes, you do. Jurgensen was a better passer than Theisman ever was. Let me help:

But your vote is understandable in view of recent history.

Do I even need to post who I voted for?

I voted for the only Skins QB to win more than one NFL title. One of the best overall athletes in NFL history.

My nickname is Sonny and I still had to go with Sammy!
