Redskins THINK-PINK Social Recap

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 20, 2013 – 7:20 pm


On Sunday, the Washington Redskin hosted their annual Breast Cancer Awareness game against the Chicago Bears in front of a soldout crowd at FedExField.

The players swapped some of their normal burgundy, gold and white accessories with pink ones to further bring attention to a cancer that affects one in every eight women.

The cause was first brought into the NFL spotlight by Tanya Snyder, wife of Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder.

Together, the two touched nearly every part of the stadium today to interact with fans and help spread awareness.

Dan Snyder Helps THINK PINK! Reach Milestone

Posted by Redskins.com on October 20, 2013 – 5:08 pm

On Sunday, Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins hosted their annual Breast Cancer Awareness game at FedExField against the Chicago Bears.

The Redskins were one of the last teams in the National Football League to host a home game in the month of October, but were the first to bring awareness to the cause back in 1999.

Tanya Snyder, wife of owner Daniel M. Snyder, used Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October of 1999 to oscillate knowledge to the Redskins fan base in hopes that it would spread across the league.

Now, 15 years later, the NFL is a leader in bringing awareness to a cancer that affects one on every eight women. In 2013, awareness is as prominent as ever.

Throughout the month, Redskins players are wearing pink colored accessories to include gloves, cleats, compression sleeves and decals.

The focus goes well beyond the gridiron, though.

Mrs. Snyder, a breast cancer survivor herself, made a concerted effort to use the attention the NFL receives to help both those who are battling breast cancer and alert others to get checked on a regular basis.

“In 1999 Dan Snyder bought the Washington Redskins [and that] was the beginning,” Mrs. Snyder said. “We became involved with the Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) sorority. The Northern Chapter came and made a proposal to hand out pink ribbons, hence THINK-PINK!  began within the league.”

On Sunday, members of local ZTA chapters and CareFirst passed out over 51,000 pamphlets with THINK-PINK ribbons and breast health tips such as scheduling mammograms.

In 1999, the Redskins passed out 8,000 ribbons. On Sunday, they passed out their 5 millionth in front of a sellout crowd that wore the ribbons proudly over their Redskins gear.

“You take it one ribbon at a time, one ribbon at a time, one game at a time year after year and we’ve gotten there,” Mrs. Snyder said.

Before the game started on a sunny afternoon in Landover, Mrs. Snyder was joined by her husband, Dan Snyder; Sherry Tilley, Vice President of Philanthropy for the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, and ZTA members in passing out ribbons to fans both entering the stadium and already inside watching warmups.

Standing out amongst the burgundy and gold scattered throughout, Tilley pointed to the amount of pink as symbolic of the growing support.

Third time is the charm.

Running back Roy Helu Jr. went beast mode on the Chicago Bears this afternoon with three rushing touchdowns, the last of which was enough to seal the Redskins’ first home victory of the season.

Hey get this—Helu Jr. wasn’t even the Redskins top rusher (Alfred Morris had 95 yards) nor was he the second (Robert Griffin III had 84).

So chalk that up as a sign of how awesome the offense played this afternoon.

In honor of today’s victory, check out touchdown No. 3:

Hey Dancing With The Stars, are you looking for another NFL player in your next season? Look no further than Aldrick Robinson and his funky dance moves.

Robinson, who had appeared sparingly through the first five games of the season, split two Bears defenders (one of which bumped and fell over. In the words of Cris Carter—c’mon man. Robinson is the smallest player on the field.)

Anyway, check out his touchdown haul below.

Fourth Quarter Conclusions: #CHIvsWAS

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 20, 2013 – 3:39 pm



Even with Jay Cutler injured in the locker room, the Washington Redskins couldn’t stop the Chicago Bears offense.

They didn’t need to.

In a 45-41 thriller, Robert Griffin III gave the home fans at FedEx Field the performance they’d been craving. Down by three points, Griffin kept the comeback drive alive with a third-down play made possible by the quarterback’s athleticism.

More thoughts and the running recap can be found below.

Third Quarter Thoughts: #CHIvsWAS

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 20, 2013 – 2:49 pm



Near the end of the second quarter, the Redskins offense put together it’s best drive of the season.

Marching 74 yards on 11 plays in 5 minutes 25 seconds, the Redskins converted three third downs, including a 3-yard touchdown grab by Jordan Reed. The dynamic pass catcher has already set a career-high and a franchise rookie record with 87 receiving yards in this contest.

Brian Orakpo also checked off a big first.

Orakpo gave Washington the lead with a well-executed tip drill, snagging an interception out of the air and running 29 yards into the end zone. That marks the first interception, and therefore, the first pick-six for a touchdown.

In another first, Chris Baker notched the inaugural sack of his career to knock Jay Cutler out of the game. Jordan Reed has already put together a career-high with 84 receiving yards.

The Redskins decided to try their luck punting to Devin Hester and subsequently got burned. Hester became the first man in NFL history with 19 touchdown returns including missed field goals, edging out Deion Sanders.

Quarter High: Jordan Reed capping off the Redskins’ last drive with a third-down touchdown.

Quarter Low: Devin Hester exploiting the Redskins’ punt coverage unit.

The Redskins had the lead and the momentum heading into the third quarter. You can see how it played out with the running recap below.

Jordan Reed’s Making A Name For Himself

Line him up a tight end, he’ll embarrass a Cowboy. Put him out wide and tell him to run into the heart of the Packers defense, and he’ll slice and dice them for a beautiful touchdown. Move him out wide once again and tell him to defeat a shorter, weaker Bears cornerback on a jump ball and he’ll be celebrate six.

Rookie Jordan Reed has been an absolute stud for the Washington Redskins this year and has joined the ranks of Alfred Morris in Mike Shanahan draft gems. Already having a career day, Reed tacked on his second career touchdown reception late in the second quarter to give the Redskins the lead once again.

Orakpo Not Longer Just Pass-Rush Threat

Brian Orakpo is not one to be outdone and when he does it only fuels his elite motivation. Quarterbacks are petrified when he’s within striking distance for fear of getting slammed to the turf and seeing him do his dance, but they’ve never had to worry about him as a ball-hawking threat—until now.

Just moments after Roy Helu Jr.’s second touchdown scamper of the season, Orakpo not only recorded his first career NFL interception, but he took it to pay dirt for his first pick-six as well.

Check out the linebacker’s interception below.

We have our first touchdown of the day and it comes off the legs of one Roy Helu Jr.

In today’s NFL, the second running back is pretty much a forgotten art, often replaced by a fifth wide receiver in pass-heavy, spread attack. But that’s not the case with the Washington Redskins.

Anyway, check out Helu Jr. with the dirty moves below!
