So last night I watched the Dallas/Washington game and came to the conclusion that both of these teams are beatable. Heres some interesting things to note about the Redskins: 1. McNabb looks out of sync with his new team. He was throwing passes off the dirt all night. His stat line was pretty dismal considering the hype that Shannahan's offense brought. 2. The new LT, 1st round pick Williams on the Redskins is the real deal. He's still a rookie, and Ware beat him a few times, but he's going to be a good player and will definitely be more challenging than whoever the Colts had. 3. The Redskins are good at defending the short, quick throws. Hall in particular was fantastic at jumping on the little quick outs from Romo to Bryant. We could exploit this with a nice fake. 4. Their run defense is better than the Colts. But it was still prone to giving up plays when the play calls were intelligent. 5. Haslett blitzes. A LOT. I was shocked at how often they brought the heat. Dallas never took advantage of this. Hopefully we'll throw over the top a few times to slow them down. 6. The Redskins defenders put 100% emphasis on stripping the ball. From an article on ESPN: http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post/_/id/18196/redskins-strip-cowboys-of-dignity If we can avoid turnovers and exploit the downfield passing attack, we should be in for a great game.
