Things I liked about the game
-Larry Allen was a monster. He was abusing every D-lineman that lined up against him
-The Redskins were a very talented team. They were just undisciplined and were celebrating the victory at the end of the 3rd QTR.
-I think Rocket Ismail became soft over night because he was finishing runs and was scrappy. I guess that Signing Bonus made him play at a higher level. Ismail didn't play with the same intensity after 1999.
- Flozell played on physical potential alone. He was raw. I think he'll even get better in 2004.
- Irvin was the heart and soul of the team. The replay didn't show many of the sideline shots that were in the regular TV broadcast on FOX. Irvin was pissed the entire game. Gailey limited his playing time.
I was at the game and I also recorded the TV broadcast. The Redskin players were sucking wind and crapping up mid-way through the 3rd QTR. The starters were calling for substitution every other play. It was great feeling after Irvin caught the tying TD pass. It was even more exciting than the OT TD by Ismail. Atleast that the way most Cowboy fans in the stands in our section thought. We were all drenched in beer by Skin fans who blew their wad late in the 3rd QTR. They were already chanting SuperBowl yada yada. It was a great feeling watching Irvin smother Green on the tying TD pass. He shield the Green so well that he almost think that there wasn't any DB behind Irvin.
great game. Makes you wonder what could have been if Irvin didn't go down.
