The Redskins-Cowboys rivalry may be back. Robert Griffin III and Tony Romo may add themselves to the list of notable players in what was once the most heated rivalry in the NFL. George Allen. Joe Gibbs. Joe Theismann. John Riggins. Dexter Manley. Diron Talbert. Roger Staubach. Randy White. Harvey Martin.

To see my list of the best 20 games in the Washington-Dallas rivalry, click below. The first three are obvious – the two NFC Championship games (1972 and 1982) that the Redskins won to advance to the Super Bowl, and the devastating, year-ending 1979 loss to Dallas that kept the Redskins out of the playoffs.

Too Many Cowboys on TV – Sick of Them

September 13, 2009

I am so sick of getting either Troy Aikman or Daryl Johnston as our game color commentators.  It’s bad enough that for years we had to listen to Michael Irvin on ESPN, and then Emmitt Smith and now Keyshawn Johnson.  You can’t get away from them.

The former Skins are a lot better on the air — so much more intelligent — whether it’s Mark May or Trevor Matich for college football, or Rick “Doc” Walker or Brian Mitchell on the radio about the Redskins.  Jim Lachey does Ohio State broadcasts.  I would imagine he’s pretty good.  Joe Theismann was a great color commentator on NFL games.  Of course, Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff are great on the local radio broadcasts.

The fact is the Skins have been average for a long time so we always get the average announcers like Aikman and Johnson.  To prevent this the Skins will have to start playing a lot better.
