BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 10, 2015 Page 15 * Gridiron (Courtesy of The Sports Museum, TD Garden) By 1936, the Redskins time to shine had arrived. Under Head Coach Ray Flaherty, Boston went 7-5, clinching the NFL's Eastern division, a First in Boston pro football history. On December 13, 1936, at the Polo Grounds in New (Continued from Page 14) York, the Redskins met the Green Bay Packers led by the legendary Earl Louis "Curly" Lambeau. The Redskins were not yet ready for prime time as evidenced by the Packers 21-6 win. The championship game was to be played in Boston, however Marshall decided the Polo Grounds was a more prominent and suit- able location. The teams' future looked promising, however Marshall believed that future should be in the nation's capital, moving the franchise to Washington, D.C. citing dwindling fan support in Boston. That season, the Redskins won their first title, besting the Chicago Bears 28-21 in the 1937 NFL Championship game. So close with the Red- skins, Boston would have to wait 65 years for its first NFL title.
