A Big Week Before Big D

Written By The Guru

Coming off a week three win at home, the Redskins are gearing up and carrying the momentum into week four at Dallas. The storied rivalry in the NFC East comes to a head on Sunday, the last game between the two at Texas Stadium. Obviously the players are running drills, working plays, and fine-tuning their game, but what does a Redskin fan do to prepare for such a big time game?

It’s a complicated process really, and it has many angles dealing with it. As ‘The Guru,’ I like to sit down and look at last week’s game, looking at several things that would work perfectly against Dallas. In addition, I also look at the Cowscrubs’ last game, finding different ways that they could have been stopped. But of course, that’s not all that comes into play.

In between classes and other responsibilities, I am glued to both ESPN and, looking for press conferences, updated injury reports and anything that will further the excitement coming up into such a MONSTROUS week in Dallas. As Chris mentioned about last week, the motto was “The 0 must go,” referring to the 0 in the loss column of the Cardinals. The same holds true for this week. Many analysts look to the Cowpokes to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, and it’s the Redskins’ job this week to put doubt in that idea.

Being from Maryland, you would think that there would only be Redskins and Ravens fans, with some Steelers fans lingering. However, I know of several Cowgals fans, most of which are friends of mine. This week is big for fans like us who have friends who are fans of the Cowboys. Sunday, we all will sport our jerseys (mine the #47 ‘repli-thentic’) and scream at the TV and each other during the game. We are friends outside of Sunday, but as soon as they put on the blue jersey, they are our foes.

As fanatics of the Redskins, I think we can all agree that this game is the most important, especially for those of us who have 'friends' that are Cowboys fans. No true fan could miss this game. This game is about bragging rights, and I am firm in the thought that the Skins will do it this week.

Hail to the Redskins!
