Re: The warpaths: Top 10 redskin-cowboy games?

What often gets overlooked in that 2005 MNF game was that the Cowboys just need a few yards (after a strong kickoff return) to line up for potentially the winning field goal. But Taylor had a huge hit on Crayton on 3rd and short. Then I think it was Walt Harris with a key tackle just short of the first down line to clinch the victory. Two huge defensive stops

HA ! It wasn't like boo hoo crying it was like everytime I turned around they were scoring or making a great play. I kept cheering and laughing calling people and before you knew it I had tears in my eyes. Man I wish I could get a tape of that game, just to have it to show it to my son. And the 14-13 game.

The Sean Taylor hit was THE play. It was actually a fumble that Springs would've recovered and taken to the house but they called it incomplete. Also James Thrash had a critical catch and run, and Brunel took off for about 15 yards to extend the series. Classic game, just classic.

that game was probably the awesomest (its a word, look it up) skins game i have ever been to.

as the clock ticked down the crowd was going absolutely freakin nuts! everyone was running up to complete strangers and huggin each other, singing hail. the electricity and feeling of as if we had just won the SB was there, it was palpable.

it was, by far, the greatest outpouring of emotion from skins fans that i have been apart of next to maybe the ST tribute game where there wasnt a dry eye during the video tribute before the game.

Re: The warpaths: Top 10 redskin-cowboy games?

ohhhhhh it was unreal. that moment and moments like that are far to few inbetween for us skins fans. half-hearted skins fans who entered the stadium that day, walked out hardcore skins fans.

i just remember running around the concourse high fiving and hugging people. it was close to christmas so it had that feel to it. that certain something.

way to many times, the skins have left us on the polar opposite end of the "fan feel good, yup i do!" spectrum. i remember the skins-boys MNF season opener years back. heart wrenching loss, gardner caught a pass on the sideline around the boys 35 yd line as the clock ticked 0.

there was contact.

hold on, STFU, im tryin to hear this.

are the refs going to call defensive pass interference and give us one more play?

waiting

waiting

no.

no flag on the play. game over.

cowboy fans rejoincing, shoving it in our faces.

skins fans quiet and gloom.

the fans came ready and willing to fight that night.

ive never seen so much violence at one sporting event.

doctors and lawyers were rowdy drunk.

fathers of children were tearing their shirts off.

only to leave the stadium with their heads down and beaten.

Debbie downer! hahaha sorry.

Yep, that was the one for me too. I froze my ass off at RFK that day. But the Monday Nighter is a close second though.

Re: The warpaths: Top 10 redskin-cowboy games?

some of the games people mention were great games. but the 82 championship game was for the SB. that game had more riding on it than any of the games except the 72 game. that game more than any other started the greatest run this organization has every seen. that game was personal and it was a bitter rival..today's redskin dallas games simply don't have that type of passion. the games today aren't even close. so for me this was the top redskin cowboy game hands down...rfk, stands shaking..it simply didn't get any better.

Before he could get the ball out someone sacked him and knocked the ball loose and we scored the go ahead points. The old stadium was rocking and we went on to win. My father a big skins fans was sitting in Jerry Jones box (long story) and had to sit on his hands out of respect. The Moss/Moss game still has to be one of the best.
Green stepping in front of Irvin forcing Aikman to reload the football. I remember that! That was Joe Gibbs last regular season game before he retired. And what a game! We went on to the play offs because we beat Dallas. Dallas really really really wanted to end our season right there, but they FAILED!

I heard later that Dallas was so pissed off that they got the rules changed. They said, that when a quarterback reloads the ball its an incomplete pass and not a fumble......................................talk about anger! Changing the rules around even? Geez!

My favorite game, recently, has to be that thrashing we gave them in '05. That Monday Night one that year was great too, but I didn't go too that one. I went to the one where we just kicked the crap out of them from start to finish. I talked sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much trash all game! It was so much fun!

There was this 16 or 17 year old girl sitting in front of me and during warmups, ohhh my seats were ten rows up from the field by the Redskins Tunnel (AWESOME SEATS), Anyways, I noticed that their punter really sucked so I screamed out a few things to him and that chick asked for it when she responded "They can't hear you!" She might have been right, but I didn't care. I do know that Roy Williams heard me when I told him, he was my new favorite player and I voted for him to make the probowl....................he looked confused.

Then Chief Zee and Crazy Rey came out onto the field (RIP Crazy Rey). Chief ripped Crazy Rey's leg off and started beating his body with it! Freakin hilarious!!! Later on the Dirtbags came out. Jansen had this look of "Kill" in his eyes. Freakin Awesome! Buges sat there and watched the offensive line warmup. Usually, he would come in and make some corrections on their technique, but not that game. Our guys were ready! They wanted it! I knew right then we had the Redskins back. Joe Gibbs brought them back. And I will always be grateful for that.

Anyways, back to that girl. The game is about to start now. Everyone's drunk, everyone's loud, its going to be a good one! And this seven year old kid and his popse come. They sit down right in front of me. The kid turns around and says, "Why do I have to sit next to a Dallas fan?" I responded, "I know! And an ugly one at that!" She cringed! She tensed up! IT WAS HILARIOUS! Later on I realized I had to back down from the trash talking. She was to young and to drunk too handle it. But, by the end of the game........................she was so upset about the whipping that she started kicking her boyfriend's ass! He was a Redskins fan and I couldn't help but laugh! Security threw her out and as she was leaving she tripped and did a faceplant on the steps! OUCH! No more beer for her!

And Cooley, he started to destroy them in the first quarter. He caught two touchdowns right in front of our seats in the second quarter. And one of them, I really want to know the name of this play, Gibbs would run it all the time. Gibbs said that when a team stacks the box at the goal line you leave the edges open and thats when Gibbs came up with this play. Its when Brunnel fakes the hand off rolls to his left (to my seats) and then either hits the fullback (Mike Sellers) or the tight end (Chris Cooley). Anyone know the name of that play? That play destroyed defenses for several years and we know about counter trey, 40/50 gut, and others, but I want to know the name of that one. Anyone know? Anyways, Cooley caught that one because my new favorite player blew his coverage. I tried to thank him but we were all to darn loud screaming, "HEY! YOU SUCK!"

Man, what a game that was! I will always remember that one! If only Shanahan can do that to the Cowboys too! I just might get season tickets again!

Nothing will ever beat down 13 pts with 5.:58 min left back in 2005.
