Vince Lombardi Injected Washington Redskins With a Winning Fever

Vince Lombardi Injected Washington Redskins With a Winning Fever

EXCERPT

When Vince Lombardi became the Washington Redskins' head coach in 1969, he inherited a team accustomed to mediocrity.  The Redskins had gone 13 seasons without a winning record. Lombardi seized the chance to improve the squad's mentality.  He wanted a team hungry to win, not one content with losing.  He employed the philosophy that he'd used in Green Bay, where he changed the Packers from perennial losers to instant winners on the way to five National Football League titles during his coaching reign from 1959 to 1967.  In the mix was teamwork.
