Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

I knew this was going to happen. Most of the postgame talk today is focused on how the Cowboys lost rather than how the Redskins won. I was just listending to ESPN radio and Mike Tirico made a comment along the lines of, next we'll talk about how the Cowboys screwed up that game.

Is the media really that in love with the Cowboys that they can't stomach the thought that someone actually went into their house and smacked them around?

Why is it still all about them even in a loss?

Matty,

Read my post of how the mighty have fallen. I keep reading things about how the Redskins Beat the Cowboys and the score is a lot closer then the game was. The radio guys just suck. lol. Cause in print they are giving us our dues.

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

Anyone else hear the story of how our locker room was over 90 degrees (the AC wasn't working, despite it being nice and cool in Dallas' locker room)? Or how one of our sideline cool blowers was "malfunctioning?" Bull shit. Nice try Dallas.

Throw on Doc Walker. The national media has a pathetic love affair with their Dallas Darlings. I'm tired of it. Jaws gives us props though.

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

I think most non-skins analysts that watched the game know that we didn't luck into this win, that we WON the game by some good ole fashioned butt kickin.

However, of course, I'm sure ESPN, and the shows, would rather talk about TO, Romo, and all of the other Cowboys, b/c thats the sexy thing to do. I really wouldn't expect anything else.

And I guess thats why i hate the Cowboys.

Yeah, it's blatant, and I am weary of it, too.

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

The standard line before showing the highlights today? "Skins shocking upset". A local TV station here asked the question of which was more shocking, Chiefs over Denver or Skins over Cowboys.

KC over Denver was a big shocker, but a 2-1 Redskins team beating a 3-0 Cowboys team? I don't get why that's a shocker for some people.

Did you happen to see the point spread? The Skins win was a shocking upset.

It was shocking in regard to the spread I guess, but the spread is just something in place to keep the betting money even on both sides.

Were you really shocked about the outcome?

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

On TV, ESPN has talked both about the things the Cowboys did wrong-not giving the ball to Barber, forcing it to TO; and what the Redskins did right-aggressive playcalling, smart decisions by Campbell, Thrash selling the play on his TD, aggressive running by Portis.

Yes I heard the same thing. I wonder if Tank will be upset about that?

I haven't watched anything today, but after the highlights last night on SC all the talk seemed to be focused on the Cowboys.

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

The Cowboys are media darlings because of all the attention they bring to themselves. Add that to the fact that they were pretty much crowned the best team in football after three weeks, and easily deemed Super Bowl favorites. Prior to beating them you would have thought the NFC East only had three teams, because that's what everyone was talking about. We will continue to get no respect from the media until we win a Super Bowl, sign Chris Henry, or Clinton Portis and Santana Moss go to jail.

Re: Didn't the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

Honestly....people are afraid to call us a #1. Look at boxing. There are several people in the same weight class and all ranked. If a 15th placed boxer fights a #1 Champion holding the title belt and wins guess what.....#15 is now #1. I believe some one on here wrote that Howie Long said that or something similar after the game. Everyone had Dallas as the #1 in our division, #1 team in the NFC...the team to beat. Dallas was the team expected to go to the SB. Hell go back and look at the magazines prior to season start. Skins were to be last in the division and not make the play offs. LOL. It was supposed to be Dallas, Giants and Eagles.
