NFL Craziest Moments: Gus Frerotte headbutts wall

Get all of The Buzzer's previous "Craziest NFL Moments" here. Gus Freotte is known for having one of the most memorable touchdown celebrations in NFL history. Unfortunately for the Redskins quarterback, his celebration is not memorable because it was creative or funny or well-thought out. It's memorable because it might be the dumbest celebration of all time. Frerotte...

Adrian Peterson praises versatile Minnesota Vikings offense

Adrian Peterson has played with some great hand-off quarterbacks for the Vikings since entering the league in 2007: Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb, Brooks Bollinger, Gus Frerotte, Joe Webb, Christian Ponder, et al. Minnesota's milquetoast collection of signal-callers -- minus Brett Favre's unworldly 2009 campaign -- constantly have led the generational running back to eight...

The 10 biggest draft busts in NFL history

Every year teams pour hundreds of hours into college prospects, to find the next potential franchise player. Countless days are spent watching film, visiting with their former coaches, visiting their pro days and hosting personal workouts. The goal is for the team to know exactly everything about the young man so that they can make the decision on whether or not he is a good fit...

The Washington Redskins offseason 12 step program

Anyone who may have predicted another Washington championship this season would have finally been right– if they meant the state. No matter though, next year instead of being Washington the state, it might just be Washington the D.C. I don’t know about other cities but it’s pretty much a given around the D.C. area that the “team to beat” is right here in our very own hometown...

The top 3 worst draft picks in Redskins history

As stated in yesterday’s post, the Washington Redskins have a record drafting quarterbacks that can be described as dubious at best. With an astounding 11 quarterbacks drafted over the past 19 NFL Drafts, the Redskins have a bevy of quarterbacks to consider when choosing the worst QB drafts of recent franchise history. With all due respect to the very forgettable busts such as...

Rony ‘Jason’ Goes to Hospital After Punching Wall Following KO Loss

Remember when former Washington Redskins quarterback Gus Frerotte concussed himself when he celebrated a touchdown by willingly ramming his head into a padded wall? If not, simply enter “Gus Frerotte” in YouTube’s search menu and “Gus Frerotte Headbutt” is the first option that automatically shows up on the drop-down list. True story.

Hey look! Another QB in Minnesota’s log-jam of mediocre signal callers

SCOTT JACOBS What’s the old saying? If you have two quarterbacks, you don’t have any? Well, what happens if you have three? Well, you’d be the Minnesota Vikings. Who, at least aren’t the Giants. Or Steelers. Or Bucs. Or – heaven forbid — the Jaguars. Why? Because they at least have a win. And a growing glut of mediocrity at the QB position. The Vikings are no stranger...

This may be the greatest celebration fail of all-time

We’ve seen a lot of blunders over the years when athletes think they have something all wrapped up. Who will ever forget Leon Lett about to score in the Super Bowl, only to have Don Beebe slap mustard on his hot-dogging? Or what about Gus Frerotte knocking himself out of a game by concussing himself with a head slam against the wall? While some may want to argue that Lett’s celebration...

Tim Tebow's Biggest Supporters Are Ruining Him

As the man who compiles Football Nation's Top 100 Quarterbacks Since the Merger list, I'd be lying if I said Tebow was, at this time, qualified for the list. The No. 100 entry, Gus Frerotte, had a rather distinguished career as a journeyman backup, and was one of the best seventh round picks in recent memory.Tebow, to my way of thinking, hasn't quite done enough to surpass...

The Top 100 Quarterbacks Since the Merger: 100-91

100. Gus Frerotte (1994-2008, Redskins, Lions, Broncos, Bengals, Vikings, Dolphins, Rams)With the third pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, the Redskins chose a quarterback named Heath Shuler, who played four miserable seasons. With pick No. 197 that year, the Skins picked Frerotte, who played fifteen seasons as quixotic “have gun/will travel” journeyman.Over that decade and a half,...

The Big Ten's mascots close the book on Call Me Maybe parody videos

Even I have to admit, Call Me Maybe is a catchy song.  Not catchy in the Friday sense, where it gets in your head and you can't get it out without going all Gus Frerotte on the nearest concrete wall, but legitimately catchy.  It's ok, I'm comfortable enough with who I am to admit that.
