And the Cowboys walked off of Fed-ex field with their heads down. No one's head was lower than Alex Barron's, the offensive tackle who held or choked Orakpo and nullified the final td pass from Romo the homo (no offense to homosexuals) to Roy "who is he again oh yeah the Lions guy" Williams. Burgundy and Gold waved in the air as a crowd of 92,000 screamed in unison. (well lets say a crowd of 72,000 cuz there were a lot of cowgirl fans there) A much needed emotional win that every true Redskins fan felt deep down to their very core rocked DC last night and gave us the hope we need to keep believing in a team that has let us down so many times in the past. But the redskins need to know one thing.
It may not have been a pretty win, we may not have scored an offensive touchdown.
But we believe.
Miles Austin had 146 yards and a touchdown
But we believe
Trent Williams held his own against Demarcus Ware and the offensive line only gave up one sack.
Mcnabb avoided pressure got the ball down the field, kept our defense off of the field and gave us hope of being a contender again.
Santana and Cooley gave us a glimemr of hope that our passing game can be found in the jumble of burgundy and gold mistakes
Portis had a tough time 18 carries for 63 yards but he will emerge as a top running back this year barring any injuries
Deangelo Hall stripped the ball on a Cowboys terrible play call form their own thirty at the end of the half with one play left, and he ran in back for a touchdown
Laron Landry hit everyone that had the ball and showed us he is ready for the probowl
Orakpo and Fletcher and Carter kept constant pressure on Romo
Shannahan, Haslett and the rest of the coaching staff guided us in to victory and would not let us lose the home opener against our most hated rivals
We believe. My seats were in the endzone that Roy Williams caught that last pass, and when the flag came out and we won the game, the crowd went crazy. Fans were jumping up and down, screaming at the top of their lungs, high fiving and chest bumping, but not me... I closed my eyes and soaked in the feeling, because it had been a while. I looked up towards the night sky through the smoke that filled the air and felt the goosebumps go down my arms and with all of the ecstatic anarachy going on around me, I looked back down at my burgundy and gold team jumping up and down on the field below celebrating their victory. Out of the corner of my eye i saw the cowboys walking off the field as the stars fell out of their eyes, and i didnt even bother to look i just watched my team, Dc's team celebrate a victory that we have needed for a long time. The Redskins were victorious, they beat the superbowl hopeful Cowboys no matter how ugly of a game, fans were going crazy with joy and running out of the stadium jumping in the air, and for that one night whether you were a redneck, a thug, a business man, a grandparent, a child, a parent, a preppy a pot head, rich or poor, young or old, fat or thin girl or boy white or black or yellow or brown (not blue with a star), everyone came togeher and highfived, everyone in the dc area was joined because the Redskins showe dup finally ready to play. You united DC for a bried moment on Sunday night.
That's why we believe...
