- 1991 Washington Redskins
Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs was one of the greatest coaches in the history of the game, and he proved it by winning three Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks.
The 1991 Redskins, led by powerful quarterback Mark Rypien, were probably the best of those teams. Rypien threw 28 touchdown passes in leading the Redskins to a 14-2 record. The offense was explosive and versatile as Earnest Byner and Ricky Ervins gave them dependable production on the ground, while receivers Art Monk, Gary Clark and Ricky Sanders were nearly unstoppable.
Defensive end Charles Mann had 11.5 sacks to lead the defense, while cornerback Darrell Green proved to be one of the best cover corners of his era with his explosive speed and top-of-the-line instincts.
The Redskins dominated the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions in the NFC playoffs before taking apart Marv Levy’s Buffalo Bills 37-24 in the Super Bowl.
