Amply illustrated with 200 photos of players, coaches, and fans, The Redskins Encyclopedia recounts the franchise's first 75 seasons, re-living the great-and not so great-moments in the team's storied history, and the men who helped make Sundays memorable.

Fans will read about:

• Coaches like George Allen, the eccentric, passionate man who left a legacy as an NFL pioneer, and Joe Gibbs, who formed a D-Y-N-A-S-T-Y.

• Players like star running back and all-time Redskins ground-gainer John Riggins, who once memorably told Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to "loosen up, Sandy baby," and Doug Williams, the first starting black quarterback to win a Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP honors.

• The franchise's golden run of four Super Bowl appearances-and three wins-in the 1980s and early 1990s

• The legendary Redskins-Cowboys rivalry

But wait, there's more-The Redskins Encyclopedia also includes:

• A year by year history of the team-from 1932 to the present, with stats from each season

• Individual profiles of more than 100 Redskins players-from Sammy Baugh to Darrell Green to Art Monk to Sonny Jurgensen to Charley Taylor to Joe Theismann

• A statistical chapter that provides all of the Redskins records-a complete roster and every draft pick

With an unparalleled collection of anecdotes, quotes, trivia, and hard-to-find information, The Redskins Encyclopedia is a must-have book for any fan who has ever bled burgundy and gold.
