I heard it all this week in DC. “The Redskins are going to get spanked!” and my favorite “ The Cowboys are the prototype team of dominance in the NFL….. They have the size, speed and athleticism to go undefeated”….. Yes, yes if you listen long enough you’ll hear anything in DC. People actually drank the Cowboy kool-aide and started to believe the Cowboys are superior. In reality the “superior” Cowboys couldn’t get enough offence going in Dallas to beat a Redskins team that most wrote off in the preseason.
Make no mistake about it. The Redskins didn’t steal a win from a team alleged to be the best in football. They walked in the front door and put a whoopin of their hated rivals in front of their home crowd. They wrote the formula to beat the Cowboys. Control the time of possession, stop the run, and contain TO. Witch in Dallas is not easy to-do but the Redskins played inspired football and sometimes that’s enough to beat the prototype teams.
It’s no secret I loath the Cowboys. The mere sight of that Blue Star makes me vomit in my mouth. If I heard another word from the media that always seem to center around the Dallas Cowboys and their superstars my head would explode. That’s what makes the Redskins victory over the Cowboys that much sweeter.
