Traces Posted January 9 Share Posted January 9 Sammy Baugh before his rookie year in the NFL, 1937. Sammy, all 6', 190 .lbs of him, would go on to revolutionize the Quarterback position and be a pivotal figure in the transformation of football from a slow, plodding slugfest into the high-scoring, big play affairs we see today. In his first season with the Redskins, Slingin’ Sammy, as he would be known, provided a preview of football’s modern era with his brilliant passing at tailback. He took Washington to the N.F.L. championship by throwing for three touchdowns in a 28-21 victory over the Chicago Bears in the title game on the frozen turf at Wrigley Field.
