previous books and got a lot out of my head. but it's always great to go back because the last 20 years have been pretty tough for redskins fans. you relive the glory days. >> talk about the glory days the redskins had. if i had to put you on the spot and name the three most influential redskins players, who would you pick? >> he was the first draft choice when they came to washington. he was the starting quarterback for 15 or 16 years. two championships, a few championship games, he was the redskins. bobby mitchell number two. first african american player. went through a lot of racism. made it easier for everyone else. third will be tougher. more of a tossup. you could go with jergenson. back to back super bowls. win won, first championship since 1942, so you go with that. anybody over the last ten years, you wouldn't go with it. >> that brings us to your next point, which is the final
chapter entitled no return to glory. that's 1999 to today. up to the present day. obviously that's when dan schneider took over as owner. tell me your thoughts on this. you think he is evolving at all as an owner? >> he always says he is. i had an interview with him in 2005 and he was evolving. i don't know if i buy this or not. yes, it's hands off, but he was with joe gibbs. joe gibbs ran that franchise. there were things joe gibbs did, why are they doing this? so i think it remains to be seen how standoffish he is. if they reverse the start having our bad year, maybe then it will be a sign of maturity. >> they are playing in st. louis. are you buying into the change you see this year? i guess bruce allen being in the front office. >> bruce allen is looking for mike shanahan. his title may not look that way, but mike shanahan makes
all the decisions. i'm picking them tomorrow. the rams are giving them all kinds of trouble the last few years. i think the dallas loss was good for this game, because they gone in undefeated, they may have lost the game. and it's a little soon. they really got lucky. beat arizona, they didn't play great on offense monday night. let's see when they start playing the patriots and jets. they are better than i thought in preseason. >> where can we get the book? >> pretty much everywhere. local bookstores, barnes and noble, costco even. amazon, a publisher, dave roth is selling some on the corner. >> yes, complete illustrated history. thank you very much for coming in. it's a good read, people. check it out. i already have. it's an excellent read, especially if you're a washington redskins fan. don't go anywhere.
