There will be giveaways and a raffle for tickets to the Monday Night game at Cowboys Stadium.  In addition, the Redskins Cheerleaders and Redskins alumni will be in attendance!  

Please join us for this amazing opportunity to show the Redskins how LOYAL, LOUD and PROUD we are to be Redskins fans living in Dallas!

RIGHT WHERE WE WANNA BE!

Our Redskins are under the radar . . . after two consecutive wins and while leading the NFC East, no one is giving them any respect!  And that is just fine!  Starting QB Rex Grossman started off with some “Bad Rex” action by throwing an interception at the goal line on the opening drive, but in “Good Rex” fashion shook it off and kept throwing the ball.  We had some trouble finishing drives, but we did enough to win the game with a very late field goal to take the lead, and a fumble recovery to seal the deal, starting the chants of “We Want Dallas!”  In years past, Rex would have imploded and a horrible game would have ensued.  Thankfully this was not the case on Sunday.

We came out of the Cardinals game with few injuries.  The same cannot be said of this week’s opponents . . . the hated Cowboys. Their injury report is littered with big names, with Romo, Austin, Bryant, and Felix all experiencing various degrees of hurt.  But between you and me, I don’t trust Jason Garrett at ALL when it comes to injuries.  I remember the Friday before the Jets game, Tyron Smith was supposed to be out for 2 – 4 weeks and yet there he was playing against the Jets.  

So we have to prepare as if all their firepower will be ready to go.  Hopefully we can have LaRon Landry back to bring the pain against Romo’s ribs.  Up and down the roster we match up well with the Cowboys - - we CAN get pressure against their offensive line, and we CAN stop their running game.  We HAVE to avoid the mistakes that always befall us on our trips here, but if we avoid that one critical meltdown, we should come away with a victory and OUR spot at the TOP of the Division!

                                                                             HAIL!   . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . John Priddy
