That sounds like respect to me.

(thanks AMD)

Trying to make up where everyone else has basically crapped on us.

I've said it many times, and I'll said it again, I absolutely love that we're under everyone's radar. This team over the past few seasons plays a lot better when we're disrespected and up against the wall. I hope the dissing continues frankly.

I listened to him for about a week last year after Tony Kornheiser joined the MNF group. Sportstalk 980 played his show for a while. They may still have him on but I certainly don't listen to it. Every day he had some pathetic comment on how the Skins were the worst and how he thought it was soooo funny. CC* can suck it sideways!

All they do is base their opinions on last year. I'd be willing to be that most of their predicted playoff teams are probably repeats from last year.

Re: Respect for the Running Game

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the Patriots set records next year? Sure, they went nuts in FA, but not the kind of nuts WE went in 2000.

Shocker.

I'll never understand why so many in the media are always on the Cowboys jock. They haven't won more than 9 games in a season since 2003, yet every year the experts fall all over themselves trying to kiss their asses.

Which records are you talking about? That's a pretty vague question. :cheeky-sm

Re: Respect for the Running Game

Bodog gives us the third best odds for most rushing yards next year so far:

NFL Football Team Prop Bets, NFL Team Props at Bodog Sportsbook


We are behind Alanta, but that is really attributable to Vick, not just their running backs. And also SD, because of LT - he is just too good and the face of that team

We haven't really had too many russing TD's compared to other big running teams (only 19 last year), for a lot of reasons like, being forced to come from behind, trunovers in the redzone, and not really having a dominating power back.

I could really see our running game tare it up next year. I just hope Portis can stay in good health, I really want to see him return to form

I dont get it either. To me the Cowboys are the 3rd best team in the division. I dont even see them making the playoffs this year. Tony Romo will slump down to what he really is: an average QB.

I think it's ratings/sales. The perception, perhaps true, is that the country is filled to the brim with Cowboys fans, so they pander to them. I guess there is also a perception that the Redskins are hated by a lot of people so Cowterd and the others are also pandering to that element. They've made Snyder into what Irsay used to be.

The problem is that there is no depth or insight in any of it. There is really nothing that ESPN can tell me about the Redskins that will be news. I am empowered by sites like this to become my own clearinghouse of knowledge and they have been made obsolete. I think this is another reason they hate Snyder. They know that he knows that they are finished. And he is in the forefront of making that happen. You have fans doing their own highlight films. Who would have thought that was possible? Renaldo Wynn does an interview on a fansite. ESPN is never going to interview a backup DL.

But to your point, there is no reason to believe that the Cowboys will be any better than what they have been the last few years.

Re: Respect for the Running Game

The Redskins have never been sexy enough for the media and in their eyes, we never will be.

I hope you are correct, we all want to see CP return to form.

I do think, however, that the success we have in the running game will be directly related to how well Jason Campbell and the passing game performs. Without a doubt, defenses will key on the running game overloading the box to make JC beat them. Hopefully he has progressed as well as all the reports indicate, and he can force defenses to stay honest. If we have a nice balance with the run and pass, this will be a dangerous offense.
