Joe Gibbs Had A Mohawk Once (PHOTO And VIDEO)

I think I’d heard that Joe Gibbs once lost a bet to mohawked-wonder Alvin Walton that forced him to shave his own hair into a mohawk, but I’d never seen proof of it. Fatpickled changed that for me this morning by posting the following clip from Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate following Super Bowl XXII, which is just fantastic. Enjoy “the magic of television” circa 1988.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Alvin Walton!! Loved that guy. He’s basically a rich man’s Laron Landry (drafted in 3d round, way more productive than Laron) w/o the preening celebrations after his tackles.

    All Madden selection who elicited one of may favorite Madden quotes after a big hit, something to the effect of “Alvin Walton is one-half safety, three-quarters linebacker.”

    He was considered pretty awful in coverage, but had 3 times the # of picks in his career than Landry has had, over a similar length of time.
