It would surely be nice to see the Redskins break a foot off in the Cowboys' behinds Monday night and do a war dance in the end zone like they did a couple of decades ago. The Cowboys got lucky last week but I don't expect any such miraculous comeback this week. It's just not in them. They ain't the Steelers.

Besides, Bryan, not all of Mississippi's schools are embarrassing us on he football field. Jackson State hasn't lost yet. Being ineligible for the post season due to grade problems is an issue of embarrassment beyond the playing field. After Ole Miss is stumped again today maybe they will consider dropping to the division that contain Mississippi College, Milsaps and Belhaven.

Queen, Todd, Golden Eagle and the rest of you down-low Cowboys' fans, who are scared to identify yourselves, I'm at the store right now getting my chips, salsa, wangs, wine and beer to watch the Redskins massacre the Cowboys tonight. I got my television set so it will go blank every time a camera man try to key in a shot of those horribly ugly Cowgirls. All I want to see is the Redskins knocking cow chips from he Cowboys for about 3 hours. To top it all off, Huggy LowDown will be on he Tom Joyner show tomorrow morning putting the whole matter in pimping perspective. Just so you will know Queen, it's going to hurt other Cowboys' fans just as much as it going o hurt you. Did y'all see the Indianapolis Colts trying to show their backsides on the Steelers last night? They had the nerves to try and come up on pro football's most storied franchise last night to make up for losing Peyton Manning, which is essentially the same as going into a dangerous bar and jumping on the baddest dude in there. Although sympathetic, we didn't have any choice but to kick their behinds. I'm worried about Ben Roughburger so far this year. Without all the female hate and female drawers thrown his way this year as opposed to last year, I'm not sure I see the necessary determination and fear necessary to compel him to super human performances. Like Tiger Woods I aver Big Ben cannot do his best without his women to get him up for the game. Some people turn to music, some turn to chants, some to meditation, some to medication, but some needs the comfort and love of the woman, the more natural and safer of the group just mentioned, unless she's angry, carrying a 9 iron, and running toward you without you having a chance to get up enough speed to extricate yourself from all danger. I strongly suspect Big Ben is of the Tiger Woods ilk. We will see. Every true athlete and winner discovers his medicine early on and uses it to propel their team to victory. Tonight you will see a whole team who hasn't discovered its true medicine, which plays like unorganized and whiny girls, and will take another embarrassing whipping with the whole nation looking on. How about them Cowboys?

How about them Cowboys? ---- Walt Oh my goodness, I canNOT express to you how wonderfully pleased I am to run across this post by my dear friend, Walt. You know I could go into how although our offense needs some attention, the defense completely murdered the Skins on that field. OR, I could mention that even with a cracked/broke/fractured rib our QB prooved last night why HE although sometimes inconsistent, he is STILL a very well-skilled, talented team leader and GROSSMAN is not even close to touching Romo's league. I might even bring up the ridiculous attacks on DeMarcus Ware and how they seemed to go unseen and HE STILL managed a sack and leads the league in sacks. I could go on and on and on about how the Redskins, even in all their cockiness, still LOST. BUT............I won't go there! I will simply respond by posing your same question: HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yesssiiiiiirrrrrr! Queen.........OUT!

"After Ole Miss is stumped again today maybe they will consider dropping to the division that contain Mississippi College, Milsaps and Belhaven." It's funny you say that Walt. It seems some people want them to go back to waving Dixie and having Colonel Reb as the mascot again, and then that'll have them back to pulling 4 & 5 star recruits away from Alabama, Florida and LSU - (I hope you guys can sense my sarcasim) Ole Miss is losing because they've stopped they're PROUD TRADITIONS
