–Families Thankful For 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast

According to Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the pressure is on quarterback Kirk Cousins to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. According to Cousins, the pressure will mostly be on his wife who is in charge of cooking the turkey.

“I just got married this summer so I guess this will be the first time we’re starting our own tradition together as a married couple,” said Cousins. “Knowing my wife, in only the four or five months that we’ve been married, she’s lived up to the hype. She’s done a really good job cooking. So no doubt, Thanksgiving for her is game day.”

Along with Kerrigan, Cousins will host several other teammates and their wives as well as his own family members.

He’ll try to find some time to peek in on some games, too.

“It should be fun hosting a few of the other guys on the team, have some fun and fellowship and watch some football,” said Cousins. “It’s the 5 “F’s” in Thanksgiving that I love: football, family/friends, fun, good food, and a four-day weekend so I’m looking forward to that.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr. will also be with his wife Thursday after the team finishes practice. He’ll go to his sister’s house and eventually celebrate the holiday at his friend’s while unable to be home in California where he grew up.

“You kind of just adapt and make a lot of food,” said Helu, who promises to watch a lot of football as well. “We haven’t really started a tradition or anything.”

“I like the leg of the turkey, the dark meat,” he added.  “I want to try a deep-fried turkey because I haven’t tried one before. My pet peeve is cold Thanksgiving food. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie or pecan pie– I switch in between– and cheesecake.”

Tight end Jordan Reed doesn’t plan to have the television on when he makes the trip to his brother’s home in Baltimore. He’ll be happy to lie around, talk to family and enjoy the macaroni and cheese his mother, the specialty cook, will pass around the table.

Kerrigan meanwhile is looking forward to his aunt’s sweet potato casserole and linebacker Trent Murphy expressed his excitement to try the fried turkey long snapper Nick Sundberg is preparing.

Wide receiver Santana Moss will also be with family Thursday, including his kids, whom he hasn’t seen for a while.

“I’m always thinking about the life that we get to live, that we don’t appreciate much,” he said. “I know some of us do. A lot of us don’t. We all complain, but at the end of the day it could be worse. So you’ve got to appreciate and love up your family.”

Robert Griffin III Thanksgiving Musts

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 28, 2013 – 9:39 am



The pie is so good you have to hide it.

London Fletcher couldn’t tell me why Jackie Griffin’s sweet potato pie is so good, only that if I got a chance to try it, I’d understand. And if he gets some, he’s not sharing.

Robert Griffin III brought Fletcher some of his mom’s famous pie for Thanksgiving last year, and the quarterback told the linebacker he’d try to hook him up this year, too. Read more »

Volunteers Drive Harvest Feast

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 23, 2013 – 4:19 pm


A bald man with a blinding smile wore a cream and burgundy letter jacket and embraced the hungry people as they passed through the concourse, clapping their shoulders and whispering personal messages.

More than 3,500 families from Prince George’s County arrived at FedExField Saturday to load up on armfuls of popcorn and potatoes and carts full of onions and canned goods at the 11th annual Bank of America Harvest Feast presented by Ryan Homes.

At the final stop, where gleaming frozen turkeys awaited those in need, Donald Hoffman waited. Read more »

Posted by Chris Herting on May 17, 2013 – 10:15 am


Yesterday, we previewed the ‘Unsung Heroes’ or six players who we thought escaped the spotlight but deserved recognition for their clutch plays and big time performances in the two games versus Dallas.

Today, we’re looking at the ‘Top Performers’ or players who had, to say the least, incredible games against the rival Cowboys and players who were a big reason why the Redskins swept the season series and earned a playoff berth.

Memorable Turkey Day Victory In Top-20

The Washington Redskins were one of the most exciting draws during the 2012 season. With mounds of hype surrounding quarterback Robert Griffin III and the unknown factor that was Alfred Morris, excitement abound was in our Nation’s Capital.

No. 10 quickly transcended from lead man at Baylor to superstar in the NFL in minutes. 12 minutes to be exact via wide receiver Pierre Garcon’s 88-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown with the cameo debut of Griffining as the cherry on top.

Despite the fact that the Burgundy and Gold entered the bye week at 3-6 and dwelling at the cellar of the NFC East there was hope with seven games remaining, five of which were against NFC East foes.

While the Redskins 31-6 smackdown of the Eagles after the bye week was certainly unforgettable thanks to Griffin III’s perfect 158.3 quarterback rating, everyone waited in eager anticipation for their Turkey Day matchup with the Cowboys.

Insert the 20th best game of the 2012 season.

Thanksgiving Win Welcomes “Baby Griffin”

Posted by Chris Herting on March 1, 2013 – 9:34 am


[Updated: 11:38 p.m.]

Thanksgiving is usually a time for family get-togethers, good laughs, and a belly full of food, but for one family there was a Texas-sized bet riding on the Redskins-Dallas game this past Turkey Day – the name of their unborn child.

Griffin III Takes Home Galloping Gobbler

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 24, 2012 – 9:40 am

Finally, after being in existence in some form for 23 years, the Galloping Gobbler is rightfully in Washington, D.C.

The Galloping Gobbler — or the Thanksgiving Day game MVP award handed out each year by Fox, CBS, NBC and the NFL Network — on Thursday was rightfully awarded to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III torched the Cowboys’ defense to the tune of 311 yards passing and four touchdowns in the Redskins’ 38-31 win, and in doing so, became the first Redskins player to ever take home the Galloping Gobbler.

Why was it so important for Griffin III to take this title? In the three Thanksgiving Day games played by the Redskins since the Galloping Gobbler era began in 1989, the award has gone to members of the Dallas Cowboys — and all three times, it went to a player very familiar to Washington fans.

#WASvsDAL: Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 22, 2012 – 7:11 pm

(AP photo)

The Dallas Cowboys got things started in the second half much like they did in the first half: with a field goal.

But with the Redskins bringing a 28-3 lead into the second half, field goals weren’t going to get the job done. They did get a huge 85-yard touchdown play in the third quarter, but the Redskins still hold a commanding lead.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the Redskins lead the Cowboys, 28-13.
