Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Why do we feel the need to bring up Belichick's personal life? Futher, it has nothing to do with this thread.

Back to the topic, Cowboys are low-life scum. And it hurt Troy Aikman's, and the media at large, little feelings that he couldn't smell Romo's jock for another week. Yeah, right!

I can't wait to see the signs in the opposing stadiums next year thrashing Brooking for boo hooing.

Once the game is won (i.e., up by 3 scores with 3 minutes left), call off the dogs.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

If the Cowboys felt the game was "over," then on the preceding drive, when they were on offense, they should have been taking knees to indicate such. instead, they were going for touchdowns with a hope of winning the game. the cowboys werent acting like the game was over, so why should the vikings?

Bingo. It works both ways. If the game was over, and if there was such a risk of injury, the Cowboys should have pulled Romo, Austin, Ware, and a few others. That would have sent the strongest signal that the dogs should be called off. Why should the Vikes fold up the tent, and let Romo and Co. take the field to pad their stats. And weren't the Cowboys talking trash during the week?

As long as the Cowboys are competing with every intention to score, I really don't get the reasoning that the Vikings should have called off the dogs.

All good points, but the Cowboys' actions don't dictate what is best for your team. When there are 2 minutes left in the game and you are up by 24 points, I think it's safe to take a knee or run out the clock. I don't think you can justify putting Brett Favre's shoulder or Peterson's knee at risk at that point, regardless of what the Cowboys are doing.

I guess there are good arguments on both sides. My only problem with the "injury" argument is that players risk getting injured running out that tunnel, so I don't think you can coach with the mentality. Also, it's not like the Vikings were at the 50 yard line and could have punted the ball. What we're really quibbling over is four points. That's it. The difference betwen a touchdown and a field goal.

So you're telling me the Cowboys would have been less offended had the Vikings made a field goal instead of sticking it in the end zone? That just sounds ridiculous.

I agree, pulling your players is the smart thing to do and I would do it but I'm not going to fault someone else for trying to score.They have every right to do what they did.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

It's not the failure for people to see my side for running up the score that gets to me. First off, I just hate the Cowboys and I took great pleasure in watching Keith Brooking make an ass of himself by complaining.

It's the double standard that exists here and throughout professional sports that upsets me the most. Take Brooking for example. He's on the sideline doing his pre-game ritual taunting the Vikings and their staff, disrespecting the home crowd, and drawing attention to himself. Throughout the course of the game players on both sides continue to taunt, talk trash, fight, late hits, fask mask, leg whips, whatever it takes to get the edge. Their competitive juices kick in and overflow. I get that. But now that we're down to the final two minutes of the game, now all of sudden we're trying to define "class" and what's inappropriate? Are you kidding me? After nearly sixty minutes of talking shit and trying to pulverize the guy in the purple jersey, now it's time to be gentlemen and show some sportsmanship?

Either do away with all of it or stop drawing these little convenient lines defining what's acceptable and what's not. It's the double standard that burns me up.

Re: Vikings Run Up The Score: Brooking vs. Pat Williams

Again - "classiest" thing in the world to do? No. Most classless act by a professional football team? No. Something reasonable given all the circumstances? Yup.

As 12th pointed out, its not like they had been running it up during the entire 4th quarter pouring it on after the Cowboys made it clear they were say "no mas". Up until the drive before the Cowboys were attempting to score. The Vikes were on the 10 and took a shot in the end zone. BFD. It clearly made the point as the cowboys didn't even pass on their next possession but called 2 or 3 running plays to run out the clock.

Wow, you must be really starved for your fanhood. If your team cannot play well enough to satisfy your fandom that you have to take pleasure in a rival team losing a playoff game, then, I pity you.

Gotta ask, who do you root harder for? The Redskins when they play? Or any team playing the Cowboys? If your answer is the later, then your fanhood is in real question. As it would seem that you would take more pleasure in seeing a certain team lose, more than seeing the Redskins win.

And to even mention the words "humiliation, ineptitude and failure", your kidding right?

Redskins resume'
36-44 in the last 5 years (.450)
1 season in the last 9 years with double digit wins
0 division championships in the past 9 years
2 playoff appearances in 10 years
1 playoff win in 10 years

You wanna talk "humiliation, ineptitude and failure", look no further than Landover.

Wade Phillips....lets see 3 years in Dallas:
33-15 regular season record (.686)
2 division championships in 3 years
2 playoff appearances in 3 years
1 playoff win in 3 years.

Lost in Divisonal round in each playoff year. Thats 1 game away from the confernce championship if I am not mistaken.

YOU WISH any Washington coach in the last decade had that on thier resume'.

Charlie Waters - 41 even met him once, got an autograph. Had dinner with Tony Dorsett.

Every team that does well has a certain number of bandwagoners. Like you for instance, you jumped on that Vikings bandwagon simply because of who they were playing. So whose bandwagon are you on this week? Saints? Jets?

(No one knows if the Redskins have bandwagon fans, like I said, "teams that do well".)

As for you handful of Dallas fans that like to practice voyeurism on our Redskin website, how can you expect any of us to behave otherwise?? Are you that braindead to think that we wouldn't bask in the totality of your constant failure? Take the pounding. It's good for ya.
Well if a winning teams playoff loss in the divisional round takes your mind off of what your players, owner, a venerable BEVY of coaches, has done for the fan base for the past DECADE, well then I am happy for you.

I got news for you Sandy, 'round these parts hating the Cowboys is a big part of our fanhood. In fact, it's mandatory. It's like taking the SAT, LSAT, or GMAT. You don't go to the next level as a Redskins fan until you've displayed, consistently, sufficient hate and vitriol for the ugliest, slimmiest, scummiest, sorriest (those are 12th words) team on the planet. Don't get it twisted. We love to hate the Cowboys and ain't nothing wrong with that.

You just don't get it, when the Redskins are playing we root for them. When Dallas is playing we root for opponent. It's quite simple.
