The popular topic on Washington sports talk radio yesterday was whether the Redskins' loss to the Dallas Cowboys was the worst in Redskin history.

In the debate that followed, I did not hear the most galling reason of all: Washington's failure to add to the lore of Redskins and Cowboys.

Washington blew its one chance to deal a setback to Dallas in their first appearance at $1 Billion Cowboys Stadium.

In a shutout.

To knock the Boys down to a three way tie for the NFC Beast.

With the Skins' biggest stars injured.

After losing its tailback to injury in the first quarter.

To be able to say "we beat your starters with our scrubs."

Legends grow from such events.

Instead, the radio hosts compared the Redskin's loss to the season's earlier setback to the Detroit Lions.

The Lions? You compare the Cowboys game to the Lions? 

What a loss for Washington.
