The GREATEST rivalry in Professional Sports, SKINS vs COWBOYS! This isn’t a relationship like Tanto and the Lone Ranger. This is war. The question is, will we be scalped or will we drop the competition with an array of gun fire.
As many of you, including myself, were calling for Coach Shanahan several years ago to come and run the Cowboys, what now? He has made changes to their organization that puzzle even small children…. Haynesworth, McNabb, Portis….well that was expected. You may find yourself puzzled. Who cares. From my perspective, let him dismantle their team. What would he have done here? Would we even know who Romo was, would T.O. even become a Cowboy? On another note, would Steven Jackson or Jonathan Stewart be a Cowboy? These are the questions you may ask. Enough about that!!
The Cowboys are in a little trouble. They face a Redskins team that is healthy than ours and 2-0. Do we have a chance to win? Hell yes we do. It will be closer than you think. Romo is banged up, Miles is out for a couple weeks and our secondary is barely holding on!
Can Dallas go EAST and come out with a victory? Possible big games: Dez and Jason.
If you are into Fantasy Football, here’s my forecast:
Dal: T. Romo – 260 yds, 2 TDs, 2 Int
WAS: R. Grossman – 220 yds, 2 TDs, 1 Int
Dal: F. Jones – 110 rush 2 Tds, 5 / 40 Rec yds, 0 TD
Dal: D. Murray / Choice – 45 yds total 0 TDs
WAS: T. Hightower – 80 rush, 1 TDs, 4 / 50 receiving yds 0 TDs
WAS: Backups – 30 Total yards, 0 TDs
Dal: K. Ogeltree – 4 / 75 yds, 0 TD
Dal: D. Bryant – 9 / 110 yds, 0 TD
Dal: J. Witten – 8 / 90 yds, 2 TD
WAS: S. Moss – 7 / 115 yds 1 TD
WAS: J. Gaffney – 4 / 65 yds 0 TD
WAS: F. Davis – 7 / 90, 1 TD
Dal: D. Bailey – 2 FG / 4 XPs
WAS: G. Gano – 1 FG / 2 XPs
With all the injuries and all the hype of Romo’s legend, I find myself with a close game with the Cowboys putting another TD on the board before time expires. The score will not look as close as the game really is.
Redskins 20, Cowboys 34
The Passing game favors Dallas. Even with a wounded Romo….give me Tony over Rex anyday. If Dez is healthy and Romo can absorb the pain, then the Cowboys will win a close one. We will certainly miss Miles, but Ogletree will certainly be a nice fill in for a couple weeks. I will stick with Dez, Felix and Witten. – Advantage Dallas
The running attack will certainly face Hightower (not the one from Police Academy) but a monster who runs hard. An almost Marion Barber type player. I still will take the Felix the old man Jones for his speed. – Advantage Dallas
Right now the receiving core for Dallas is banged up. I will take a healthy Witten and Dez over a speedy Moss and Fred Davis. – Advantage Dallas
Kickers – Who cares. This usually will add 8 to 10 points in fantasy, but neither look good to me. Advantage Dallas (Dan Bailey)
