He may have never played a down with the Arizona Cardinals, however, we are all still proud of Arizona Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm in his induction into the Hall of Fame this weekend. Congrats!
Grimm, who was introduced yesterday in Canton by his former coach and former Cardinals head coach Joe Bugel, played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Washington Redskins from 1981-1991. He was a member of the famous "Hogs", the menacing Redskins offensive line of the 1980's.
Grimm is the first "Hog" to be inducted in Canton and every bit deserving. He made the Pro Bowl four times. He helped his 'Skins win four Super Bowl Championships. Grimm was also named to the NFL's all-decade team in the 1980's.
Grimm is the main reason, in my opinion, in the rise of the Cards offensive line over the past few seasons. Without Grimm, the line would not be as successful as it is today. Offensive line used to be a major weakness for this team for years and years. Grimm brought in his persona, teaches his techniques, and that has molded the Cards into a formidable opponent on the offensive line.
