Music isn’t the only genre where one-hit wonders are plentiful. Sports teams have their fair share as well. Sometimes the genres even cross paths such as in 1985 with the Chicago Bears and the Super Bowl Shuffle.
I chose the 10 greatest one-season-wonders from the Redskins organization. I didn’t dive too deep into history as not only has the game changed drastically, but many of the statistics just weren’t available during the early days of the Redskins franchise. My research reached back about 35 years or so.
Remember; just because a player appears on this list does not make him a bust, but merely shows that he only delivered one season of note for the Skins. That said, these one hit wonders make artists such as Sir Mix-A-Lot and Vanilla Ice look like, well, plain vanilla.
If the Redskins were to put out an album of their greatest one hit wonders, these would be the players that would be featured. Each player had one season with the Redskins that shone far above all their other seasons with the Skins. There were plenty of names to choose from, so I incorporated all those who I left off in an honorable-mention section.
So here are your one-hit wonders (and I’m not talking about Mike Tyson vs. Michael Spinks for the heavyweight title in the ‘80s) with a brief write up about them, their career, and how it compares to their lone memorable season; their rose in the concrete.
Please share any additions you can think of in the comments section. Thanks for reading.
