    In recent years games with this much on the line, Dallas would fold at the opening kickoff. No spirit no fight nothing. If this team comes out ready to play despite its abundance of concerns, then there should be little doubt that at least the coaching culture has changed dramatically and that the direction for this team is on the upswing.

    Then again many fans threw in the towel vs Cinn and Pitt only to be wrong.

    I don't. I think this is the same team I've seen over recent years, whether they win this next game or not. They've got the same issues they had three years ago.

    I agree. The culture has changed but with the defense so many 2nd and 3rd stringers because of injuries I feel it's going to be too much to overcome. The redskins are healthy and playing good team ball. They have a running game and our injuries on D are to our best run stoppers.

    I'm not saying we have no chance but the odds are long in my opinion. If I were a betting man i'd take the skins without thinking twice.

    Cinn is the only good win to talk about to be honest. Pitt had fallen apart before they even played us. They let a team as pathetic as the Chargers come in their house and completely dominate them. So while it was nice to beat a team that has had discipline over the last 10 years (something our team dreams of), they weren't really a good team if we are being honest with ourselves.

    The Cinn game came more down to them beating themselves because of their WR's dropping balls left and right. None the less it was still a great win. We found a way to get it done against them.

    Then we let a crappy below .500 NO team come in our house and beat us.

    With that said, there are zero reasons our team can't beat the Redskins. Their Oline is just as bad as ours and their defense is just as bad. Romo threw for over 400 yards against them last time. So this will be the game where we see if this team has turned the corner or if they are going to revert back into the same weak minded, weak coached, team that we have been used to over the years. I seriously have my doubts. Heck we already have all the excuses baked in, "Our defense sucks", "our Oline sucks", "our receivers ran the wrong routes", our receivers dropped the balls", etc.

    I want to agree with you but I can't. One thing I can see is this team is not quitting at all anymore. They may lack the talent right now but they are fighting with everything they have lately and that is something I haven't seen in forever.
    It may just be a brief aberration, but it's certainly here right now.

    So the Pittsburgh team we beat sucked...but the Saints team that beat us sucked as well? Do you work for the DFW media?

    Didn't say win I said ready to play, and have fight. Past teams in this position against a sound opponent have folded.

    The culture has changed and they will fight.

    Just not sure if they can stop the Skins with the middle of that defense so decimated.

    Wrong. Off the top of my head, they are missing they're best defensive player in Orakpo, another starter on the D-Line Carriker, one of their safties Merriweather, and their playmaking tight end Davis. Both teams have impact players that are injured, no excuses on either side, just go win the game.

    I agree, there is a noticeable difference in effort, fight and competitiveness, I dont understand how RS doesn't see this

    I dunno. Beating this fired up, Shanahan-coached Redskin team on the road would be pretty damn impressive IMO.

    I don't expect it to happen though.

    They fought in 2009 too. This is the same team.

    If we beat the Redskins, that's great. We beat the Eagles that year too. We even beat them again in the wild card round but then we faced better competition and got absolutely destroyed due to our lack of talent in the trenches.

    The same thing will happen to this team should they beat the Redskins on Sunday.

    Maybe, maybe not the only way to find out is win Sunday and see where it takes the team.
