I was so content, and mostly shocked, that the Redskins beat the Cowboys on Sunday, I wasn’t quite sure how to react. There are so many Dallas fans around DC, that it would have been easy to gloat, but something inside me said that it was just another victory, and it’s still a long season. Essentially, winning is saying enough. Then again, a picture is worth a whole bunch of words. (And I’ll let others do the talking.)
- Tank Johnson had to be restrained because Rock Cartwright celebrated on the Dallas star at the 50 yard line after the game. Tank, being a classy man himself, brought up the issue of class.
- Mr. Irrelevant reminded us all of a Star logo controversy of the past between Tank’s current teammate, Terrell Owens, and former Cowboy, Emmitt Smith.
- Now Owens, who I’ve tried to stress to nervously defensive Cowboys fans time and time again that you NEVER want that guy on your team when the chips are down, is doing exactly what is to be expected of him…..T.O. is saying that he didn’t get the ball enough. Evidently, the offense does not exist without T.O., yet Dallas was able to somehow beat Green Bay last week with Owens only catching two balls for 17 yards.
- Now, Emmitt Smith is saying that Owens is “not a true Cowboy,” but never fear, because Emmitt is still getting his groove on.

My game ball goes to the defense. No, they didn’t sack Tony Romo, and they only forced one turnover, but they brought consistency and disrupted what most thought to be an unstoppable Cowboy offense. But the key was that the play of the defense, in holding Dallas to only 44 yards on the ground, helped the Redskins control the ball, and have a significant advantage in time of possession, 38:09 to 21:51.
“How ‘Bout Those Redskins!?!”
