Classic Team Logo of The Day

24 Sep


An alternate logo for the National Football League’s Washington Redskins, used in the early 1970s. The team had hired Vince Lombardi to be its’ new head coach and went into a bit of a tailspin as the new decade began as he succumbed to cancer. The hiring of George Allen for the ’71 season revitalized the franchise and they were in the Super Bowl in 1972. Notable Redskin players of that era include Billy Kilmer, Sonny Jurgensen, Charley Taylor, Larry Brown, Jerry Smith, Chris Hanburger, Pat Fischer, Mike Bass, Brig Owens, Richie Petitbon, Jack Pardee, Roy Jefferson and Ron McDole.
