STATEMENT FROM WASHINGTON REDSKINS OWNER DAN SNYDER ON THE PASSING OF HALL OF FAMER BOBBY MITCHELL:

 

“I was extremely saddened to hear the news about the passing of the great Bobby Mitchell. Bobby was a Hall of Fame player and executive and represented the Washington Redskins organization with integrity for over 50 years. His passion for the game of football was unmatched by anyone I have ever met. Not only was he one of the most influential individuals in franchise history, but he was also one of the greatest men I have ever known. He was a true class act and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Gwen and the entire Mitchell family during this time."

RIP Bobby Mitchell, Didn't Bobby Mitchell and Charlie Casserly do a Redskins recap TV show on Monday during the 1990s ?

I pray that God give His Grace, Peace, Love, Guidance and Salvation to Bobby Mitchell's family, relatives and friends.  Bobby Mitchell gave so much to the Redskin's organization and communities.  🙏

A great person from all reports, as well as a great Redskin. One the first players I remember when I think of my early childhood. God’s blessings for family. RIP Bobby!!

RIP Mr. Mitchell.  

 

I have a neat story about Bobby to share.  About 15 years ago I was at a Sheetz in Northern Virginia.  Went inside to get a drink.  When I went to checkout line, I realized I was standing behind Bobby.  I didn't want to bother him and "out" him in front of others so I let him be.  But when he left and it was my turn at the counter, I asked the young man behind the counter if he had any idea that he had just waited on a NFL HOF'er.  He did not.

He did do a TV show on a sports channel then called "Home Team Sports" (which became "Comcast Sports", then eventually became "NBC Sports Washington"), but I don't think it was with Casserly.

 

I believe it was with Eric Bolling during the 80s and early 90s. Mostly during the glory years of Joe Gibbs. Though I can't remember its name.

 

"Redskins Report", I think.

Kindergarten Ninja allowing another player to use his number, even if temporarily, was unforgivable.

I remember how excited my dad was when the Redskins traded for him.  He broke barriers with class.  A true professional and outstanding talent.

 

Thank you for the memories, Bobby Mitchell.  You brought excitement to a team in need of same.

I think very few of us truly understand the level of bull**** the great Bobby Mitchell had to put up with simply because he was black. 

 

A true legend.  RIP.

Extraordinary human being, phenomenal football player. I wish I'd had the honor to meet him in person. I do wonder how different our longer-term trajectory might have been if he had been named GM instead of "the intern" taking over once Beathard left.
