    Redskins vs Cowboys Prediction Thread: Who Wants To Be On Top ?

    Its these types of games that can shine a light on an unknown, budding star to make a splash. Desperation can be a good thing.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    It's not surprising to hear AP being a little banged up, but he knows his body better than anyone of us including the doctors. The guy is a rarity in the league. Hec, if he were playing in the 80's, he'd just slap some mud on that **** and get back out there. For those who didn't know, back in the days of 'th' Hogs', even John Riggins was banged up a lot. There were times he spent days in traction at the hospital to help relieve pressure on his back, and once sunday came around he was in the backfield plowing through defensive lines, then after the game back to the hot tub, traction, 12-pak, ice bath, then back on the field, and he missed quite a few practices. AP is in that type of mold. Good old fashioned grain-fed tough.

    If the players focus on their goals, their assignments, and not get cutesy or worse get caught with their pants down, they have a strong probability of winning. Making a nice defense of a pass, great job, but don't go nuts on the field like a crack head, because that's when they'll come right back at that player and he ends up getting burned. Like Charles Mann said, do your job, get a pat on the behind or a 'good job' from a player or coach, but you better be ready for the next play.

    Redskins win this game and I might start having a little belief in that guy who predicted the Redskins and Patriots in the SB. Over the years, the Redskins have retired a few HOF players, none stick out more than Walter Payton. Tom Brady anyone?

    I'm fond of " Dork " myself, Dork Pisscup. Or, " Dork Press-n-Fold ". Hopefully that will be the theme sunday, press him into making mistakes, then he folds.

    Redskins Fans: Let’s Stop Being Pansies

    Yea, you have first-hand knowledge of what it was like growing up in the lower income lifestyle. I wouldn't trade those times for anything, its what made me what I am today. As far as not ever gone to a Redskins game, it does sound weird, and how I rant on at times it would sound like I'm a season ticket holder! But every single fan has their own reason why they're a fan of this team and everyone has the right to be in whatever mood they want to be in, its what makes us all different, and as Dan Quayle once said, the one thing we all have in common is the Washington Redskins. One thing is for sure; I WILL make it to at least one game before I fade off into the sunset, and it will be a helluva time, hec I might even drink a beer [ or Crown & 7 ] and hopefully the Redskins will be kicking ass and taking names, but to me its not as much about the winning or losing, its about the fans, the camaraderie, the gathering of people who share your beliefs and screaming for your team to cheer them on. I've already had my times of being on top of the world during the 80's and walking tall and talking loud as my Redskins took the Lombardy trophy home 3 different times, and I can say, for those who aren't old enough to have experienced that feeling, I feel for them, because there is nothing like it, nothing. I will also say that back then, winning the SuperBowl seemed to have more meaning than it does in this millennia; it felt different. Maybe it was my anticipation during an off-year than Gibbs would have the team back there again soon, and that fire stayed lit, as it does now.

    Redskins Fans: Let’s Stop Being Pansies

    I am 54 [ going on 14 ]. I have NEVER been to a Washington Redskins game. Growing up, my family was dirt poor, living off S.S. and getting some of my food from places I'd rather not mention. But one thing I attached myself too at a very young age was this team. At first I didn't know **** from wild honey about football until I started playing with the kids in the neighborhood, and every single one of us had a different favorite football team [ and an alternate ]. Everyone of us were asked why we were fans of whatever team we liked, living in southeast Texas most people around here were Cowboy fans, but dammit I'm a rebel, and I told anyone who questioned me about my team that I cheer for to kiss my ass. And I still say it today...

    Does Doctson even care?

    Doctson definitely has the physical attributes to be a great WR; size, height, speed, good jumping ability, etc. But he's just not motivated. This is in Gruden's / Ike Hilliard's responsibility. They aren't reaching him mentally for whatever reason, but the need to, or cut him loose. The problem with that is, AFTER he's cut, there will be other teams looking to sign him, and of course when he's cut it will hit him mentally and THEN that sense of urgency takes over, he realizes he needs to really get into it or he will be without a job, and all of a sudden he's a top 3 WR in the league. There are players who spend their entire life, through pee-wee, high school, and college, fighting to be drafted by an NFL team, and once they're drafted, they develop a sense of 'ok, I've made it', and they feel they're set no matter what. But he has to get his act together; if he doesn't, he better be let go; there are plenty WRs out there who put a helluva lot more effort into being more than a drafted player. He's been injury-prone and when he's not injured he doesn't do anything to warrant being kept on a team. To me this sucks, because he's the tallest WR with a lot of potential but for whatever reason he just doesn't care.

    Redskins vs cowboys for First Place in The NFC East

    I bet that the Eagles will have a real interest in the game. They haven't played either of us yet, and they want to be where we're at right now. The Giants, well, they haven't figured out how to turn on the tv yet...

    @Spearfeather @ BatteredFanSyndrome C'mon guys, this isn't the way to be. No one is right and no one is wrong, just R E L A X. We're all fans, our team is leading the division, its a big rivalry game this week, can't we all just get along neck bottle of beer and enjoy it?

    Redskins vs cowboys for First Place in The NFC East

    The last video by the OP, that was one helluva game! A friend of mine, a Cowboys fan, was over watching the game at my house. When Aikman pump-faked then lost the ball in the endzone and was recovered by the Redskins, he kept saying it was an incomplete pass but I told him nope its a Redskins TD. The funny part was the camera was constantly going back and showing Jimmy Johnson [ Dallas HC }, with his non-blowing hair, then after that TD they showed him again, he was beyond pissed and his hair looked like he went through a hurricane, it was a bird's nest! It was hilarious.

    Had a flashback this morning; Irv Cross standing next to a hog pen, then throwing a Cowboys jersey into the pen and watching the hogs start tearing it up and stomping it into the mud. good times back then...

    Redskins vs cowboys for First Place in The NFC East

    Manusky damn sure better have a spy on Dak, he has been escaping the pocket quite a bit in the last few games. What worries me is smith; I said it in the prediction thread, Smith has a long slow deliberate wind-up before he throws, and that ball sits in his extened arm/hand it seems like forever. I know the Cowboy linemen /LBers are seeing this and will be looking to knock it out of his hands. It will be nerve-wrecking watching this game, I hope there isn't a letdown.
