Incorrect.

The correct answer was Wayne Millner. Cmon' GoPats! You should know this....he's a former Boston....Redskin.

When Wayne Millner joined the Boston Redskins in 1936, the news so excited the team's new coach, Ray Flaherty, he promised to resign if "we don't win the championship with that big Yankee playing end."

The Redskins did win the Eastern Division title that year and Millner, a star on both offense and defense, was a major contributor. For the next few seasons during which the Redskins, who moved to Washington in 1937, won two more divisional titles and one NFL championship, Wayne became the favorite target of the brilliant passer, Sammy Baugh

Mark Moseley

Correct.

Helping his team like no other kicker could led Moseley to 2 pro bowls and being named All-Pro 4 times. His best season however was his famous 1982 season where he not only won NFL MVP honors but locally was named Washingtonian of the Year. Mark was the last kicker in the NFL to kick straight on, as most kickers now us a soccer style kick. Like the ending of the straight on kick. Mark Moseleys retirement was the ending of the career of the Redskins best kicker ever.

Hey I actually know this one.

D - Washington Redskins.

As I recall, he "un-retired" (a la Bill Parcells) after a year away from the NFL and managed to coach the 'Skins to a winning record after a bad year before it. I want to say it was the mid-70s, maybe '74 or '75.

Good job TwinSisters.

I went back and looked today. Larsen didn't make the final two Super Bowl squads and retired in 1974.

http://www.superbowl.com/history/boxscores/game/sbix

Sutherland replaced him.

But I guess you have to say," Who are the Purple People Eaters?"

Maybe you can say Sutherland was one and I think most folks still think of the whole defense as the Purple People Eaters ( like the Steel Curtain, Doomsday Defense ) and not as much as something like the Fearsome Foursome ( which was just a line ).

I am thinking I will give the old Norse Nightmare an email. Maybe he will sign in and clarify. That would be cool.

............

I am thinking I will give the old Norse Nightmare an email. Maybe he will sign in and clarify. That would be cool.

I'd be interested in the answer. To me, the Purple People Eater moniker was more appropos to the early group you mentioned from 69-72. When Tarkenton came back and they added John Gilliam and Chuck Foreman to the mix in '73, the team all off a sudden had an offensive attack beyond 3 yards and a cloud of Bill Brown or Dave Osborn. There was just as much or more focus on the offense then as there was the defense.

People may still have called the line the PPE's after then but that 'mystique' took a seroius hammering by Larry Csonka in Rice Stadium here in VIII January '74 (their second SB loss). After Franco Harris ran all over them in their loss to the Steelers in IX the following year, the 'SB loser' rep started to really take hold. Mixed in there was a Hail Mary loss to Staubach/Pearson in '75 which further damaged the rep. By their last SB appearance against in '77, I don't think anyone was calling them the PPE's. Viking fans then were just wanting a SB win to get a monkey off their back that's still there thanks to Madden and Co....
