And their cheerleaders are not nearly as hot as some fat assed, 50+ year old sports writers might have you believe.

So juilius jones/marion barber, willie parker/et al, dominic rhodes/joseph addai are the very best running backs in the league right now? Would you trade Portis/Betts for any of those combos?

edit: the steelers running game is very good, but still.

In fact, I think we need to pass a Man Law here:

No Redskin fan, no matter how congenial he or she is, must ever get too cozy with a Cowboys fan?

I'll be the first to sign. he's trying to divide the nation with his damned sensical comments. whatever happened to his Redskins conversion? weren't we close to making him defect last season?

I want them to key on the run and I hope they were watching both CP and Betts run wild and get ready for that... then hopefully we can use a bunch of those passes in that 700 page playbook no one has seen and torch them through the air.... I think our first play from scrimmage should be play-action, deep pass to Moss.. You know they will be expecting the run..

the thing al does more of is screen type plays to RBs and WRs, but last year gibbs did tons of that to cooley and moss too.
You are correct, sir. Not to mention that the Counter tre is the epitome of a pulling play--the classic Gibbs running play.

I guess you're right. they do have one of, if not the best DT combos in the league. I like CanadianSkin's idea over trying to estbalish a passing game early to open up the run later. Sunday will be pretty interesting.


dallas sucks and their fans are typically jerks who like the smell of their own farts. pass it on.

it's not a question, it's a fact. stroud and henderson are the best DT combo in the league. the panther's DL may have been better overall when buckner was still in top form though... they've got good tackling DBs as well that help them take away the outside stuff too.

Not all the time... I know I have let a few go that made my own eyes water....

But Cowboy fans stick their hands under the armpits and smell them.... they think they are superstars... Pass it on.

To get back to the subject, I just watched the shortcut version of the game again and DAMN our offensive line, and I don't care who you're playing, owned that team. They're ALL professionals, and we just flat out dominated them.

Thanks Malcolm for keeping us on the right path... yes our OLine did dominate and hopefully they can keep that momentum again. If they can give Brunell time in the pocket he can go after his own record and maybe whip out McNabbs record of 24 in a row....

Seriously, re-watch the game. I don't care if it was the Texans or not. We play like that this weekend, we win.

our offense is as yet unestablished and Al's 700 page playbook spans multiple games vs. multiple teams. Mike Sellers has confirmed as much. it's just too soon to tell.
I was one of the people who was criticising the playcalling after the Dallas game. I wasn't saying, "Saunders sucks, fire him!" or anything, but I was critisizing him for not doing EXACTLY what he did against Houston. A methodical offense that mixes short passes with runs is hard to defend, easy to execute, and universially effective. You really have to pull your safeties up to defend it, and Saunders (I absoulutely guarentee you) was waiting for his chance to go deep. The Texans never gave him that chance. I'm not sure the Jags will either. But the Giants...I know for a fact they will. Brunell has his confidence back, and this offense will be clicking on all cylinders over the next few weeks.

The defense however, I don't see improving anytime soon. It's good still, but weaker than last year, plain and simple.
