ESPN to air 25th anniversary Doug Williams piece with Robert Griffin III as the narrator.

Quote:
According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, ESPN will be airing a 7 minute segment on Sunday about Williams’ impact on the game that will be narrated by none other than Robert Griffin III:

The racial angle, in other words, was right there in the forefront. And when ESPN decided to revisit that moment on its Super Bowl Sunday edition of Sunday’s NFL Countdown — focusing on how Williams changed the perception of black quarterbacks — they asked RGIII to provide narration. He agreed; the seven-minute piece, with Griffin’s narration, will air this weekend.

Quote:
“In a game that focused on the quarterbacks — Williams because he was the first black to play the position in the Super Bowl, and Denver’s John Elway because of his overall brilliance — Williams staged one of pro football’s greatest big-game performances,” they wrote.

In his postgame remarks, owner Jack Kent Cooke extended his congratulations, “not just to a black quarterback, but to a great quarterback.”

I remember the game too --a nobody running back named Timmy Smith runs for 204 behind the Hogs.. Taking nothing from D Williams but he had plenty of time to throw and the receivers seemed to be wide open -especially Ricky Sanders.. Just a dominant game all round, but especially by the Hogs..

williams played most of the game with a hurt knee. Many questioned if he would return after he fell awkwardly during a sack In the 1st quarter I think. Williams play was heroic.

The hogs were awesome, but Williams still hit the long ball as good as anyone could of

I was there.

My pops, who's been to every Redskins Super Bowl took me in 1987 for my 12th birthday.

The first quarter was depressing. All the jackazz Bronco's fans were up in our faces giving all of the Redskins fans in our section a hard time. Gloating. It really did feel like it was going to be a LOOOOOONNNNG day at the end of the first quarter.

I will NEVER forget the 35 point second quarter, or the performance of Timmy Smith.

It was a Great Day! Best birthday present ever!

I hope to repay my pops someday soon! HTTR!
