Redskins Legacy: Baugh Beats the Bears

PDF icon Redskins Legacy: Baugh Beats the Bears159.11 KB


Prior to Sammy Baugh's entrance into the NDL in 1937, offenses were mostly run-oriented. Players such as the Bears' Bronko Nagurski, the Giants' Tuffy Leemans and the Redskins' Cliff Battles dominated the headlines. The pass was pretty much a secondary option.

That changed in Baugh's rookie season, when the Redskins' first-round draft pick proved that the pass can be a formidable weapon. he completed 91-of-218 throws for 1,127 yards-all league highs-and earned first-team All-Pro honors.
