I woke up this morning with ESPN still on my tv...at the bottom the cold hard finality hit me yet again. "Cowboys eliminated with loss. Redskins can still get wild card with loss by Bears and Vikings." Which is very unlikely so I expect by 8 PM it will be 100 percent elimination for the Skins, too. Regardless of what happens with the Redskins and Cowboys in about 10.5 hours, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for the good solid football discussion over the last few weeks. When I first joined this place, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had some doubts some would be willing to engage in civil discussion/debate with a R hedskins fan. In many ways I feel the teams and fanbases have more in common now than in the past - with the Mara BS and being long-suffering. Both franchises have been very scrappy in fighting back to save their respective seasons. I'd always been of the impression when I was growing up that Cowboys fans were bandwagon fans...yet when I asked people about their first memories...some went all the way back to the beginnings of this franchise. I didn't expect to see such breadth and variation there. I was impressed. People have even given me good advice in other areas of the board about some things outside the scope of football. So thanks again - I've really enjoyed this place. I realize that if the Redskins win tonight, that I should out of respect give it some time before posting again here. In the past, or even with Cowboys fans I see in person, there would ordinarily be some gloating. If the Cowboys win, they deserve the playoffs and the division....no excuses, no *****ing about refs, common opponents, none of that. Here's to a good hard-fought game today by both teams. The rivalry is back - and I hope there are many more years of these types of games between the 2 teams over the next 10 years or so.
