|The Washington Redskins will honor their 1987 replacement team that won all three games by giving them Super Bowl rings next week. The team will hold a ceremony Tuesday at its practice facility with replacement players and the general manager of the `87 NFL champions Marcus Williams Jersey , Charley Casserly.
It’s an unusual move considering how divisive the replacement games were during the NFL players’ strike that season. But the replacements helped Washington go 11-4 overall – one game was canceled by the walkout – before winning two playoff games and the Super Bowl over Denver.
”Their contributions are part of Redskins history and represent an integral reason why a Lombardi Trophy from the 1987 campaign resides in our facility today,” team owner Dan Snyder said.
In Washington’s first game with replacement players, it defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 28-21 as wide receiver Anthony Allen set a franchise record with 225 yards receiving on seven catches. The next week, the Redskins beat the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants 38-12. Despite the strike ending four days later, the Redskins’ replacement players beat Dallas 13-7 even though the Cowboys had several starters in their lineup.
The next week, all regulars returned to the NFL.
On Tuesday, the Virginia General Assembly commended the replacement members of the 1987 team. Quarterback Tony Robinson and defensive lineman Anthony Sagnella represented the players in Richmond.
30. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (14-4)
LAST SEASON: Survived early knee injury to QB Sam Bradford and thrived behind Case Keenum's breakout season Shaq Mason Jersey , taking advantage of broken collarbone for rival Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to win NFC North for second time in three years on strength of eight-game winning streak. Newcomers Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers bookended improved OL. WRs Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs flourished in OC Pat Shurmur's scheme. "Minneapolis Miracle" throw from Keenum to Diggs on last play of game gave Vikings victory over New Orleans in division round. Coach Mike Zimmer's defense fed off loud home crowds and led NFL with fewest yards and points allowed, but faltered in 38-7 loss at Philadelphia in NFC championship game. That dashed team's dream of becoming unprecedented Super Bowl host, watching Eagles win title on Minnesota's turf two weeks later. Still, 2017 will be considered top-10 season in franchise's title-less history.
THEY NEED: G, T, CB, RB Marshon Lattimore Jersey , TE, LB.
THEY DON'T NEED: QB, C, DE, WR.
POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: G Isaiah Wynn, Georgia; G Connor Williams, Texas; T Mike McGlinchey Danny Etling Jersey , Notre Dame; T Orlando Brown, Oklahoma; CB Josh Jackson, Iowa.
OUTLOOK: With Kirk Cousins new QB after signing record contract in free agency, Vikings focus on upgrading OL overwhelmed by Eagles' pressure in NFC title game. RG Joe Berger has retired, potentially opening starting spot for first-round pick. With Thielen, Diggs and new WR Kendall Wright, plus TE Kyle Rudolph and RB Dalvin Cook returning from knee injury that cut short rookie season Derek Watt Jersey , Cousins has plenty of capable targets to throw to. But another field-stretching pass-catching TE could serve new OC John DeFilippo well. Teams can never have enough quality CBs, so using high pick at position would not be surprising for more support behind Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes. Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr are borderline stars at LB, but depth would help. With Super Bowl window still open for Vikings, one or two immediate starters will be priority.
