Tuesday marks the sixth annual All-Star Survivors Celebration at Redskins Park. NFL Breast Cancer Awareness Spokesperson Mrs. Tanya Snyder will host the event treating 20 women from the Washington, D.C. area currently battling breast cancer.

This goody bag is just one portion of the pampering, support and celebration the “All-Stars” will receive.

The Washington Redskins have several initiatives planned for October in support of the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

‘I’m Going to Be Myself’

When he prepares with a written speech, two-time Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley said his public speaking skills are “average, sub-average.” So he decided a long time ago to ditch the script and give you his unfiltered personality, which he now shares on the airwaves.

When Cooley, along with Larry Michael, speaks at a Leadership Luncheon presented by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Oct. 24. , he’s going to deliver his heartfelt thoughts on playing for the Redskins, creating art and building a business from the ground up.

“I want to explain to people how I’ve done things, how important it is to have that confidence in business and leadership in my life and portray that as myself instead of being fake and reading a script,” Cooley said.

For more on Cooley’s authentic approach, check out the video below.

Coaches and players have the occupational obligation to pore over film today, searching for what went wrong in a 31-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last night.

Hopefully you can appreciate some things went right, including standout individual plays and performances. The Redskins fell short on the road, but at least three players gave them opportunities to capture the momentum at AT&T Stadium.

Here are your nominees for MV(Redskin) from Cowboys week.

Momentum Swung Away Once Again

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 14, 2013 – 3:55 pm

In no way one does one play out of 125 define a game and can be pinpointed as the justifying reason for behind success or failure. Just as it takes 11 men on the field to collectively execute at the utmost effort, a series of plays is what makes the difference.

There are, however, particular plays that can twist momentum in one team’s favor. I wish it weren’t so, but there were far too many plays that went the Cowboys way Sunday, leaving the Redskins with more questions heading into Week 7’s matchup against the Chicago Bears.

In the fourth quarter, trailing by only eight and the ball in their possession, the offense trotted out onto the field hoping to build off Alfred Morris’ third quarter touchdown and possiblly knot the score at 24 apiece.

Instead, on a broken play, Robert Griffin III was strip-sacked and the Cowboys recovered the loose pigskin within the Redskins’ five-yard line.

Just two plays later, Cowboys rookie running back John Randle with the help of 2013 first round pick Travis Fredrick’s strength, the archrival tacked a fourth touchdown on the scoreboard.

A drive that started with promise turned into a deflating, momentum killing Cowboys touchdown faster than a ref ruling a ‘Boys punt return fumble dead due to blocking someone into the football. (There will be more on that later I’m sure.)

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media this afternoon at Redskins Park just hours removed from a deflating loss at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.

With two weeks to game plan and salivate a cross-country victory, the Redskins’ confidence was high. They didn’t enter with a lackadaisical mentality that victory was automatically theirs, but ‘woe is me’ wasn’t running rampant either. They just knew that it wasn’t impossible to steal a win in Jerry’s World.

Questions continue to linger about last night’s performance, especially on special teams. There is still plenty of time to regain a spot at the top of the division (the Cowboys and Eagles are both 3-3), but they’ll need better performance across the board. If it isn’t the offense it’s the defense and if it isn’t the defense than it’s special teams and so on and so forth. It’s something different every week that is preventing the Redskins from finding themselves in the win column.

Anyway, here’s a Twitterized summary of  Shanahan’s presser:

What Went Right: Week 6

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 14, 2013 – 12:44 pm

Highlight: Alfred Morris busts the longest run of his career, a 45-yard touchdown to cut the lead to single digits.

What went right: This is what a well executed zone running play looks like. The offensive line and the runner are moving in perfect concert. This play is successful because each blocker completes his assignment, Morris has the vision to be decisive and then breaks a tackle to complete the big gain. Center Will Montgomery has to trust guard Kory Lichtensteiger to handle the defensive tackle. Watch how quickly he passes the defender off, leaving the double team to get to the next level and  seal off Sean Lee in the middle. Outside linebacker Justin Durant keys on fullback Darrel Young, effectively running himself out of the play. Morris sees the lane, cuts upfield and has the patience to make a another cut off Montgomery. Orlando Scandrick can’t square up on Morris, and the runner shakes him off to complete the play.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 14, 2013 – 11:25 am

One of the few positives that will carry over from the first Redskins-Cowboys matchup of the season was Robert Griffin III’s mobility. Some called it shades of the “old” Griffin III, but the reality is he had his best opportunities to date to move around.

Left for dead by some so called “experts”, the read-option was alive and well last night giving way to the Redskins’ first 200-yard performance of the season. Led by Alfred Morris’ 45-yard touchdown run and Robert Griffin III moving freely when either the pocket collapsed or on a designed keeper, the Cowboys had no answer for the option attack.

The passing game however, left much to be desired and struggled in crunch time.

In the fourth quarter, Griffin III connected on only five of 12 passes and threw a costly interception in the back of the end zone on a chain moving drive.

After the game, he said that no matter what happened at AT&T Stadium there will be no finger pointing in the locker room.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media last night at AT&T Stadium after his team dropped to 1-4 on the season, 0-2 in division play.

Only one other time has a Mike Shanahan led team has started 1-4. The other? The 1999 Denver Broncos who started the season 1-4 before ending the season 6-10.

Hopefully, that sub-.500 record is the only instance of a Mike Shanahan led team that started with one win in the first five tries.

Anyway, Shanahan spoke in depth about the disappointing special teams effort, what happened during the with clock management at the end of the first half, Robert Griffin III and more:
