Sounds great to me! Can't wait for preseason to end. For us fans I think the games are useless. Go 'Skins, Boo Dallas.

Aww come on Mary! What did the Cowboys ever do to your Skins? I mean just because we own the Skins on the ALL TIME games series (since the inception of the Cowboys) doesn't mean we can't be nice! LOL! I will say this. I have about as much respect for Daniel Snyder as.....well....our own owner; Jerry Jones! Which is ZERO~
You do have to admit though.....the RIVALRY is one of the BEST in the NFL! Good Luck!

Jerry -- You are correct about both owners. I think the rivalry intensified when the Cowboys proclaimed they were "America's Team." I remember when Joe Bellino was Dallas' quarterback and was injured in a game with the Skins. I was sorry he was hurt but here was our chance to win the game. The backup quarterback was a little known player named Roger Staubach. The Cowboys slaughtered us.

Mary I don't recall Joe Bellino. The only ones I remember from back then were Don Meredith and Craig Morton.
Roger eventually WAS the starting quarterback from Navy. Seems as though the Joe Bellino I remember was from Navy though....but was a running back. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Anyway...another bit of trivia was Staubach was injured playing against your guys one Thanksgiving. A fellow named Clint "Mad Bomber" Longley from Abilene Christian College (here in Texas) and started heaving bombs. That game was close though. Later Longley and Staubach got into a fight in the practice locker room and Longley was released not long after

I met Sonny Jurgensen one time. Before there was a Dallas Cowboys football team both he and Johnny Unitas were my favorite players.
I met Jurgensen while working at a hotel (the same one mentioned in the celebrity thread) He was always partying...and slapping backs and was one of the last to make it in.....just before the Skins curfew. (Lombardi was coach)
When he was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Redskins it was a huge deal...because this guy could WIN with that big arm of his! I remember the ribbing he got from local sportscasters there in Washington about his growing "pot belly" His terse reply was...."Well I don't throw the football with my belly!"
When I saw the Redskins itinerary of activities building up to their game with Dallas back then.... on Sunday the first thing on the list was "TEAM MASS" Knowing not all the players were Catholic...I asked Sonny and another great player named Charlie Taylor (from Grand Prairie, Tx)..."Why does it say "Team Mass?" Jurgensen replied; "Cuz Coach Lombardi makes all of us go!" (Taylor was nodding his head in affirmation) LOL!
