It was supposed to be a blood bath.
The Washington Redskins were supposed to lay down in the Cowboys house. They were supposed to get curb stomped, wiped out, humiliated, and embarrassed. Marshall Faulk and Warren Sapp suggested that the Redskins were simply going to lay down and forfeit the rest of the season in an attempt to play for an early draft pick, which is pretty damn insulting.
The whole organization was under question. Jay Glazer reported that Snyder was out of the country and "unhappy" with the way things were happening. (Of course, one has to wonder how he found that out if Snyder's out of the country, but I'm not a "real journalist," so who knows.)
At the end of the day, it was still a loss. But the people who said the Redskins would pack it in (including fans) have been put on notice—sleep on this football team at your own risk.
Perhaps it's the fact that expectations were so low for success that it's making the win look good. But regardless, the 'Skins played good football in another game that came down to the wire versus their hated rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.
So, let's take a look at what we learned in the Redskins loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
