Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
The 1996 season was a disappointment for the Washington Redskins, but a formidable learning tool for the years to come. By the end of the season, they were still in the game, vying for a playoff spot against the Dallas Cowboys, even though their 1996 defensive record placed them 28th in the entire league. With a strong offense from the help of quarterback Gus Frerotte, running back Terry Allen, and wide receiver Henry Ellard, this 1996 Redskins team proved that they could have a winning year, despite obstacles. This video captures all of the 1996 Redskins glory and drive, in addition to the agony of defeat and the lessons they learned during this tough season.
