Well, as every Redskins fan knows (or should know) is that this the Redskins 75th anniversary.  The team, founded in 1933 as the Boston Braves, is having a vote on the offical team website http://www.redskins.com/.  For the first 10 weeks of the season there will be three memorable Redskins moments put up to vote.  After one has been selected during each of the 10 weeks, the 10 finalists will be put up to vote to find out which Redskins moment is the MOST memorable in the glorious history of the Washington Redskins.  This week's three memorable moments are (I'll include the description from the website):

 1937: Redskins move to Washington.

The Washington Redskins are officially born on Feb. 13, 1937. The National Football League approves the transfer of the Boston Redskins franchise to Washington, D.C.--and a new history begins. Within a year, the Redskins would become part of the fabric of the Washington, D.C., community as they would go on to win their first NFL title.

 1984: Art Monk breaks single season receiving mark.

Art Monk emerged as a Hall of Fame-caliber player in 1984, shattering the NFL mark for receptions in a season with 106 catches for 1,372 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught eight or more passes in six games, had five games of 100 yards or more and in a game against the San Francisco 49ers he caught 10 passes for 200 yards. He earned team MVP honors and his first Pro Bowl selection.

2005: Santana Moss catches two touchdowns to stun Dallas on Monday Night Football.

The Redskins ended years of frustration against the Dallas Cowboys with a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback at Texas Stadium. The Cowboys led 13-0 with 3:55 left in the game when Mark Brunell tossed a 39-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss on a fourth-down play. Then, with 2:44 left, Brunell connected with Moss again on a 70-yard TD pass. It was the Redskins' first victory at Texas Stadium since 1995.

 

So, go out Redskins faithful and make your choice for this weeks Most Memorable Redskins Moment.
