Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins, A Rivalry In Smack Talk

The simple truth is anyone who calls a sheep herder a cowboy is out of his freaking mind. The word is cowboy, and it implies working with bovine. For those not in tune with the Latin, that means cows. The silliest thing about this remains that it was a damned movie, not real life. Let’s talk about real life.

First of all let’s put to rest the Troy Aikman allegations. Those were started by none other than Skip Bayless. You want to know why he’s so bitter against Dallas? Folks he lost his job because of those allegations. His own fault for printing lies. That’s right, it isn’t true as has been proven many times over. The weak stuff about “Tony Homo” is about as 6th grade as it gets. Oh wow, you changed a letter in his name to make a rhyme, how original.

I told you there was truth to be shared to expose this weak smack. Let’s share it. The first athlete to ever “come out of the closet” was RB Dave Kopay in 1975. Dave played for 5 teams in a 9 year career. He wrote a book after coming out wherein he revealed he had a homosexual relationship while a member of the Redskins, with a teammate on the Redskins, Jerry Smith. Jerry Smith was an All Pro TE who played for the Redskins for 13 years. He was the first professional athlete to die from AIDS.

Now, I’m not suggesting either of these players should be bashed for their lifestyle, and certainly not for Smith’s death. I’m merely suggesting that it’s rather stupid to sling mud about homosexuality when probably the dirtiest mud is on your team. What’s more damning here folks? Tony Homo, or an actual documented homosexual relationship?

In fact, according to Dave Kopay, the Assistant General Manager of the Redskins in his years there “came out” after he left the team. So this homosexuality they joke about extended from the locker room to the front office on their team.

I always thought it was kind of odd that a Redskins fan would talk smack to any other fan about homosexuality when their most famous fans cross dress as female pigs in dresses. I love irony.

But the truth is if they consider Tony Romo’s surname to be tragic in some way because of a 6th grade nursery school rhyme, then they really don’t even know their own team’s History.

What I mean by this is the Redskins seem to own the market on tragic names for football players. Allow me to introduce you to three names from their past.

In 1963 the Redskins drafted a LB named Harry Butsko. I don’t know about you, but if my last name is Butsko, the last thing in the world I want my parents to name me is Harry. You gotta know this kid was the butt of a lot of jokes; pun intended. You’ve almost got to consider his name to be child abuse. I thought, that has to be the worst in NFL History. No it wasn’t. Not even close.

    Jason Garrett may have risen in stature recently but for mine there are several worrying trends that are associated with him. Firstly, I am sure all fans are stunned as to why the team FALLS BADLY BEHIND VIRTUALLY EVERY HOME GAME. Garrett has provided no explanation for this disturbing trend. If NFL games are always “so close” then constantly struggling at home means you are NOT a playoff team. Second, and closely related to this, is the continuous chant from BOTH Garrett & Romo that “games will come down to the 4th quarter”. Is this really true. Look at most of Brady’s games, Seattle of late, Green Bay of late, The Colts, The Redskins, et al they do NOT have this philosophy!!! Rather than this Garrett should guarantee wins here & there and state that some games will be dominated by the team. He never ever says this and so the chorus line spun by Garrett & Romo- every game to be close- appears to come true. Try doing 3 Hour exams and continually telling yourself that a bare pass grade will be very difficult to achieve. Well guess what this is how it will turn out – a struggle every time you enter the exam room. Third factor is the CONTINUAL SEASON ENDING INJURIES. From BOTH sides of the ball. Why does this team get so many terminating injuries??? Are the players brought in just too soft OR is the training & preparation incorrect or just bad??? Garrett has never ever satisfactorily explained this. Look at Sean Lee. Toe surgery and he’s gone forever. Look at Ray Lewis – much older and has torn chest pec muscles [a much more serious injury than a TOE!!!] Yet Lewis is set to return THIS SEASON!! What gives, is Lee too soft … is Garrett NOT HARD ENOUGH on these young players or what?? The toe is barely two inches, the chest region is over a metre. Why is Lee, a crucial player on the defense, done for 6 months or more???? The final factor is that with this “every game is close mentality” can Garrett ever be anything above a .500 coach??? I think the evidence suggests not and hence I conclude that keeping Garrett will only produce the next San Diego or Philadelphia i.e a weak mess of potato mash and scrambled eggs. If Sean Payton, who is good friends with Romo & Witten really wants to coach Dallas then I say GET HIM NOW before the train wreck happens.
