TO will have 2 TD's and about 5 first downs....
unfounded optimism is never healthy
T.O. will probably have those #'s.. but sadly if hes the only one who shows up yet again then we won't have but like 17 pts again.
More factual than optimism... you will be exposed this week.....
although if it was "unfounded optimism".... THAT is always better than thinking of something negative.... duh...
Is it unfounded optimism when Joe sends video tapes to the league hoping for a change in his favor or cutting the juice to the opponents audio so you can cheat to win?
chin up soldier.... :starspin
Technically speaking, it is very much optimistic than factual.
There is no way it can be verified at this point in time. Thus, it becomes a matter of optimism, what you believe or hope will happen, versus factual, that which has already occurred and can be verified.
Of course, I hope you're right. But one serving of reality never hurt anyone.
Sunday night it will be fact.
What's the all-time record between the two franchises?
Who has more Super Bowl trophies? Super Bowl Appearances?
Until your inferior team is in the same ballpark, you would be well served in tempering your confidence/arrogance.
But they have Tom Cruise and Jamiee Foxx....
I see your point, but Aikman, Irvin, and Smith don't play for us any more. Mark Rypien, Art Monk and John Riggins have also retired.
It has nothing to do with that.
The Cowboys are 12-3 vs. the Redskins in the last decade.
In case you are wondering, Quincy Carter was undefeated against the Redskins. That fact alone should be evidence the extent to which the Redskins are the Cowboys' red-headed step-child. If the worst quarterback in NFL history can be undefeated against your team, then your team has no leg to every stand on and proclaim dominance. And if you take out the game Chad Hutchison lost, then prior to last year, the Cowboys had won 12 in a row.
At every level, its clear the Skins are an inferior team to the Cowboys.
The problem is that the idiot Redskins fans win both last year in an off-year and they suddenly forget how they have been owned by the Cowboys.
The bozos need perspective, and if they ever run their mouth, just ask the question I did.
They need to learn their place. If they win the next 15 straight, then maybe we can have a legitimate discussion about which franchise is more dominant.
I see no flaws in that post.
Hey stat boy, all of this is well and good. It can't be changed.
Your team has had a lot of off years lately. You don't have thing to show for any of those wins except some bragging rights.
How about living in the near present and look to the future?
Both of our teams have been mediocre for years. 10 years to be exact.
Since 1996 the Cowboys have a regular season record of 74-86 with one playoff victory in 1996 against the Vikings.
The 'Skins have a regular season record of 77-82-1 with two playoff wins
(one against Detroit in 1999 and last year against TB).
I love my team, but the reality is that both of our teams haven't done squat in a long time (until last year). Go ahead and beat your chest about winning six games against us while you were going 5-11 three years in a row. It seems a little odd that you crow about relatively meaningless wins.
I suppose you need to build up your morale somehow. Anyway, it's true your team does have a fine history, as does mine. I say we look forward to re-establishing the rivalry and growth of the NFC East to its elite status. You'll always be judged by not only the quantity of your wins, but the quality of your opponent. That quality really hasn't been there for quite a while.
Here's to a good (injury free) game on Sunday.
spoken like a true skintroll
near present = you winning 2 games against us last year - u keep riding that one
look to the future = you havent lost those games to us yet so you have half and argument
does "near present" make any sense anyways?
