Trivia: (1) What was significant about the win over the Redskins? Who was the leading rusher for the Cowboys that day? (2) Nick Folk was released on Dec 21, 2009 -- what prompted his release and who replaced him?
1) It was the only win of the 1989 season. Paul Palmer.
2) Folk was having a terrible year, but a missed kick that would have iced the game against the Saints was the straw that broke the camel's back. Replaced by Sean Suisham. Another crappy kicker.
