Next Stop Canton!

Well today is Super Bowl Sunday obviously I'm stoked to see what will hopefully be a good game. But at the same time it sucks. Why? Reason One.....Football season will be over after today (Pro Bowl doesn't count). Reason Two.....My Redskins are not playing.

But it is still somewhat a good weekend for Skins fans. Why? This weekend the announcement of the 2008 Hall of Fame Class was made and two of them were Redskins. Long time greats Art Monk and Darrell Green got their tickets to Canton.

Monk was a go to receiver that highly contributed to the Redskins winning 3 Super Bowls during his time in the Nations Capital. In 1992 Monk became the then NFL All Time Receptions leader with 820 catches.

Green was shutdown corner back that was also a key contributor the Redskins stored history and was part of 2 Super Bowl winning Redskin Teams. Green had a interception in a record 19 straight seasons.

Both of these players will always be remembered as some of the greats to all Redskins fans. Thank you so much for your contributions and congratulations!
