The Washington Redskins opened their 2012 season with a bang Sunday, as they went into New Orleans and defeated the hometown Saints 40-32 in front of a loud crowd at the Superdome.
There were several keys to Sunday's victory, but we'll focus on the obvious: Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III played marvelously in his first-ever NFL game.
Griffin III started the game on fire through the Redskins' first two series on offense, completing his first seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. His favorite target early was wide receiver Pierre Garçon, who, on ... Read More

Lorenzo Alexander has a lot going on besides football. Father and husband, founder and president of the ACES Foundation focused on under-served youth, founder and part-owner of a local Pilates and fitness studio. The list goes on, and we didn't include his spot as one of the Redskins Team Captains last year.
When WOW asked the linebacker how he manages it all, he replied, "I wouldn't be able to do it...without my wife. She is definitely my rock...without her I'd be lost."
As the team's female fan club, WOW had to sit down with ... Read More

Rocky McIntosh has spent the past six seasons wearing burgundy and gold. Drafted out of the University of Miami in 2006 and recording a career-high 110 tackles for the Redskins in 2010, the linebacker finished off the 2011 NFL season with 65 combined tackles, one sack and one pass breakup. While Rocky is currently a free agent, we don’t think is the last we will see of the McIntosh’s in the DMV.
In January, Rocky and his wife, Alessia, founded and launched a non-profit organization called A GRAN Foundation, focused on empowering youth and giving underserved children the ... Read More

Kendra had the biggest crush on Barry in middle school.
And while it may not have been self-confessed love at first sight for the Redskins nose tackle Barry Cofield and his wife, Kendra, the two began dating in high school and got married during Cofield's rookie season with the New York Giants.
After spending the past five years in New York, the Cofields relocated to Washington, DC after Barry was signed by the Redskins, following the 2011 lockout. Cofield had a breakout season with the team at nose tackle, a position that is often considered the toughest to fill ... Read More

I bleed Burgundy & Gold.
My passion for the Redskins has literally been in my blood since birth! Both my parents were avid sports fans. Mom was 9 months pregnant with me, jumping up and down at a game in the hallowed RFK stadium - luckily I didn't pop out! My sister was born three years later and thus began our family tradition! I guess in a way our motto was God, Family, Football! Sundays would start with church first, then proceed with lots of great food, and then family time around the T.V. My first Super Bowl attendance was ... Read More

Hailing from Havre de Grace, Maryland, a "beautiful little town sitting on the Susquehanna River," Zelda Westbrook and her husband Ron have now seen two sons enter the NFL. First Brian, who started his career in 2002 with the Phildelphia Eagles, followed a few years later when Byron joined the Washington Redskins as a cornerback in 2009.
Between working full time for the federal government and supporting her own local causes, Zelda still finds the time to help out at numerous Redskins charitable events throughout the season, including the Skins Santa Shoppe pictured below.

From the practice squad to NFL starter in just a few weeks, Evan Royster proved his value to the Redskins running game this season. Due to a season-ending injury to Tim Hightower and ineffectiveness by Ryan Torain, Royster stepped into the starting lineup the last two weeks of the season when Roy Helu, another rookie running back, was slowed by knee and toe injuries. He rushed for 100 yards in both games, finished with 328 yards for the season, and averaged 5.9 yards per carry.
