I understand everything you're saying, but I think it's wrong. It's insulting to turn on MNC when the Skins are playing, and have to see the whole 90 minutes devoted to our rivals. Romo's one thing but to spend so much time on Vick... it's a slap in the face. Guess we've kind of earned that treatment though.

I still say it's time for SSPN.

They should have given two full minutes to a graphic where Rex is compared one-by-one to every other starting QB in the NFL as of Week 3 in 2011 with a simple question:
Which guy do you want NEXT WEEK under center for your team?
I don't think Rex is anywhere near the "Top Ten" in that exercise. In fact, he is somewhere in the "Bottom Ten". Now if the MNF Countdown folks wanted to do an in-depth bit on the Skins, that is a comment that could have launched them onto a real analytical course.

SmootSmack is right on here. Like it or not, there are other players and other teams in the NFL that are far more interesting and attractive on a national basis than the Redskins. ESPN is NOT trying to play to the DC/MD/ VA market alone; they want a national audience.

Folks here like to talk about how the media hates the Skins. That is not really the case. Actually, I find it interesting how much the folks here hate to hear just about anything positive regarding other teams and players on other teams.

I don't think Beck will start unless Rex gets hurt, IMO he's done a decent job

When was the last time Dallas was held without a TD? They broke Romo's 20-game streak of consecutive games with a TD pass.

But man, ONE busted coverage on 3rd and 21 when the defense did everything they possibly could to keep us in the game while the offense took half the night off and Jim Haslett is the antichrist.

Sports fans just cannot do without a villain -- even when he's on the team they root for. Crazy.
The fact that the Redskins sport the #1 defense in the NFL on 3rd down was not lost on the Cowboys coach either.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

LOL. Steinberg debunked that. Costa basically says the defense was just jawing at him:

Phil Costa on Washington’s simulated snap counts - DC Sports Bog - The Washington Post

Tandler had a great post about this today, basically saying that the 'Boys are doing an awful lot of complaining for a team that won the game, between the snap count whining and Ware complaining about holding calls (seriously, another team bitching to US about holding? Brian Orakpo weeps for you, really)

Personally, this feels to me like a team who feels like they need to justify why they played so poorly instead of really believing they were the better team and "gutted out a win". And we ought to know since most of our wins over the past decade have been in the "played their guts out" vein.

A google news search for "snap count penalty" shows that Hasselbeck claims the Titans were doing it against him, and the only other reference I could find was Brian Billick doing a lot of bitching and moaning about the Jets doing it to the Ravens in '07.

If we were caught doing this in this decade, I couldn't find any evidence of it.

Not only that, but Romo was strangely silent when PRO BOWLER Gurode was tossing bad shotgun snaps when he least expected it.

I don't blame the media. How can you? I am just pissed that they are so right so often about our team and love the Boys.

A buddy and I were watching the game and he said Romo looks like LeBron out there, whining after every play, yelling at his teammates, throwing up his hands, making this exasperated face like he deserves better.

Then you hear Jaworski praising the guy for "educating the youngsters on the field" and it's impossible not to laugh.

If I'm being honest, it's a great story for an undrafted QB to come in and put up the numbers he has, and if he played for any team or owner other than Dallas, I'd probably think, "hey, that's great." But he plays for Jerry, on the most pretentious team in football.

Hell, I can't believe I'm admitting this but I was rooting for Wade Phillips watching the Texans this week. They're my 2nd favorite team (how can you not like Schaub to Andre Johnson?) and it's amazing how much less of a douchebag Wade seems now that he's several hundred miles away from the Jerrydome...

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

Anyone else think that Cooley looked slow, and not the usual slow where he breaks 100 tackles. I'm talking about slow slow after the catch he just looked like he didn't have any gas in the tank?

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins at Cowboys)

I finally watched the game on NFL rewind...which sucks...I had to take a nap so I could watch the game midnight Wed morning which was the soonest they play it...
Not suprised at all.
Our redzone continues to suck, although our kicker is improved.
The Redskins continue to invent new ways to lose games that they should win.
As I predicted earlier..this is a 7-9 team better than last year and competitive...but clearly not a winner yet....give us another decade or two (or a change in ownership) and we may eventually see a 17th game.

All I can say is Gibbs was a lot better than most of you give him credit for in Gibbs 2.0....possibly better than the Superbowl teams with really solid talent.
