R.I.P.

Slingin’ Sammy Baugh. The Greatest Ever Redskin.

Led the league leading in passing, punting and interceptions IN THE SAME SEASON (1943).

Revolutionised the forward pass in American Football.

One of the seventeen original inductees to the Hall of Fame (and the last alive, until Wednesday).

The Washington Post’s (predictably) brilliant obituary.

The story of the Bears players hitting him on the ground is really good.
