Russ Grimm in Hog Heaven — former Redskins guard makes Pro Football Hall of Fame

February 6, 2010

He’s in!!  Former Redskin Russ Grimm has made the Hall of Fame in his 14th year of eligibility.  Congratulations, Russ.  It was long overdue.  Earlier today I wrote that Grimm deserved to make it but probably wouldn’t.  Here are the first three paragraphs from the article I wrote a few hours ago on Grimm getting selected.

Former Washington Redskins guard Russ Grimm was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame today. Grimm, a member of the “Hogs,” the Redskins legendary offensive line, played in four Pro Bowls and four Super Bowls, including three wins. He was named to the NFL’s All-Decade team of the 1980s.

Grimm anchored one of the greatest offensive lines in NFL history, alongside players such as Joe Jacoby, Jeff Bostic, George Starke, Mark May, Raleigh McKenzie, and Jim Lachey.

Grimm anchored the line as the Redskins won Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks and three different primary running backs. Six different running backs led the Redskins in rushing during Grimm’s 11 seasons but the offensive line was the constant along with wide receiver Art Monk.
