Dating back to their inception in 1932, the Washington Redskins—then Boston Braves—are one of the most storied franchises in NFL history.  

2012 marks the 80th anniversary for a team that has seen a number of great and historic events over its time. 

The team boasts almost 20 Hall of Famers, five league championships, 15 division titles and 22 playoff appearances. 

Former Redskins standouts like Sammy Baugh and Doug Williams changed the way the game was played and made history while doing so. Baugh helped to usher in the era of the forward pass while Williams was the first black quarterback to play in the Super Bowl and the only to ever win one.
