    Okay. I think I'm ready for a guess.

    Redskins 26
    Cowboys 20

    For the simple reason that it's hard for this team to win 3 in a row.

    Yep. It will be an agonizing 3 hour experience that'll come down to the final minute of play. If we win, great. If we lose, we'll be talking about the one or two plays that would have won us the game.

    34-27 Cowboys. Romo has a field day on their secondary. RG3 produces and plays lights out; rushes for 60+ and a score but in the end their secondary is the achilles heel and we eat it up. :star:

    I think that our weak pass rush and running game are more likely to be the deciding factors.

    statistically, it is harder for this team to not win 3 games in a row at some point in the season.

    Campo never did it. Since then, we only have had 2 seasons without a 3 game winning streak - once with Parcells and once in the year we fired Wade (where Jason nearly had a 4 game winning streak)

    The problem with that is you're dealing with different players. I'm talking about this team.

    I consider the game a toss up. I'm picking the Redskins simply because I don't trust this team to put 3 wins together.

    I wouldn't bet a stick of chewing gum on the game though.

    30-24 Cowboys

    Expecting Dez to have another great game.

    Yes he is, buy the way it's worked out, they have been the types of opponents you might schedule for Homecoming.

    Believe it or not, the 4-6 Redskins are probably Romo's toughest competition yet on Thanksgiving.

    Was the Green Bay game in 2007 on T-day? If so, then that was clearly better competition.

    But you're right. The level of competition overall has been low.

    I will never understand why people bring up stats like that.

    Who was the Cowboys coach when their only win was against the Redskins ?

    I feel like it was Coach Johnson.

    And I do understand Boyer stated "this team"...what has this team shown you to believe that ?

    I also consider the game a toss up, largely because I have little respect for the team Shanahan has assembled

    for instance, the skins with their players they possess have failed to win two games in a row this year and have accomplished this feat only twice in total with Shanahan on board.

    That's why this is so tough to pick. You're convincing me the Redskins go down. They are a bad team on the road in a short week.

    Then somebody else will come in and remind me how bad we are too. Everything you can say about them can basically be said about the Cowboys.

    Fair enough. How long has Garrett been in the big d ? And what has he accomplished ?

    The Redskins are playing above expectations, especially with all of the injuries. The Cowboys are playing on par.

    EDIT: But although with my prediction I was being a homer...it really is a toss up. Depends on which teams show up in the afternoon.

    They played the Jets that year. GB was the week after I believe.


    2006- Buccaneers - 4-12
    2007- Jets - 4-12
    2008- Seahawks - 4-12
    2009- Raiders - 5-11
    2011- Dolphins - 6-10


    2010- Saints - 11-5 (Kitna)

    Well then you are correct, sir. This is his toughest opponent to date.

    And those one or two plays will be added to the list of "fingertips" and shoulda coulda woulda plays that caused us to just miss the playoffs by a hair or two . . . .

    a perennial last place team with a rookie qb on a short week is at most at the same level of weakness as we have faced in recent history.

    the problem is this is the worst offensive unit we have had since Romo has been around and it leaves us with zero confidence, even when playing perennial last place teams.

    fortunately he has shown the ability to win two, even three games in a row outside the month of September. :lmao2:

    It could drive you to drink when you think about the possibilities.

    Stuff like watching your supposed #1 WR lose the ball in the lights to end the Giants season and then they go on to win it all.

    Crayton stopping his route.

    Romo muffing the FG hold.

    I think the one thing you can definitely say about this game is both teams will make a run and have the momentum. It's just a matter of who has it at the end.
