      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

To anyone saying that the Redskins will wear the throwbacks against Dallas, that can't happen. Since 2004, the Cowboys have worn their early 60's alternates, which is a blue home jersey. By league rules, the Redskins must wear white.

Everything I have heard was the throwbacks would be worn against the Giants on the Monday Night game, not Dallas

I am pretty sure most teams wear their throwbacks on Thanksgiving.

Plus, Dallas will 100% be wearing those white throwbacks

I agree, that was very difficult to make out numbers. It was a team effort in my section... especially with Briscoe getting reps, having he and Morgan on the field together was difficult... and on more than one occasion, the crowd went all "Coooooooley" when Paulsen caught it, hahah.

No team effort in our section. Damn. But, it was easy to tell if Banks was out there. He's so small, he looks like a midget in comparison. I caught the "Coooooley". It died out pretty quick from my perspective.

It can only happen on Thanksgiving. in 02 the Redskins wore their 70th Anniversary uniforms while Dallas wore a dark throwback. Also, I am pretty sure a couple of years ago the Patriots wore red against the Lions in their blues.

It happened in 2002.

I would love for this team to go back to the tradition of wearing white shirts and burgundy pants at home and only wearing burgundy shirts and white pants on occassion. They can throw the gold pants in the trash.

agreed we need to get back to Gibbs 1.0 look. Burgundy and White. None of this other crap with gold pants .....

Does anybody else wish we would permanently wear the colors we wore last week? I loved the REAL Burgundy and Gold colors. Obviously we could just take the typical helmet and match the color to the uniform, but I thought those uniforms were exceptional.

But yes, we do only seem to win with the white jerseys and burgundy pants.

I agree 100%. We should make that jersey permanent and adjust our current helmet to match. That would look beast.

Glad somebody agreed. The gold pants were much better than the yellow ones we typically wear. I thought the color scheme looked great. I heard a lot of people weren't big fans of the helmets but honestly I liked those a lot too. But we could definitely come up with a new color scheme for our current helmet. But I know this is just a pipedream, it's obviously not going to happen.

Looking at the Mike Shannahan show and if the throwback helmet sitting on the table in the center of them is any indication, we'll be wearing the 80th anniversary unis against philly

I doubt it. The only two games I have heard about was Panthers and Giants...

Attention everybody...we do not have the burgundy pants anymore

Just for this year. Them blowhards only allow teams to carry three pants colors in one year. With us going with the old gold pants this for the 80th unis, we had to get rid of the bright gold, white, or burgundy pants. They made the right choice.

You're right, I think they normally do wear their alternates on Thanksgiving. There was a game a few years ago where the Bears were granted permission to wear their red alternates as well on Thanksgiving, but assuming Dallas sticks with tradition the Redskins will probably be wearing white on Thursday. The last time I remember that happening was the Monday Night Miracle game (when Dallas also wore throwbacks). I remember thinking it looked so odd seeing the Skins wearing white in Dallas!
