You are probably correct. I know Bellino and Staubach were both Navy men. Yeah, I remember Longley -- didn't know about the fight. Oh well, we shall see what this season brings for these two great teams. I do know that on game day the traffic will be terrible around my neighborhood. I live 4 miles from Fed Ex.

Mary, I have a friend I have lost touch with. Last I heard he got sick and moved back to California. Sorry to say that we jogged together, played cards....did cookouts. But Charlie Evans (his name) was one of those underrated players who played under John McKay at USC. (fullback) He played a year or two with the Giants before finishing his career with the Redskins as the lead blocker for Larry Brown.
Anyway, my point was even though we were friends (and this is long after he played) he didn't like the Cowboys. He said, "It was drilled into me to hate the Cowboys and don't much care for them now!" lol!

The one who REALLY fueled the ongoing rivalry between the two teams was none other than George Allen; whose "future is now" approach led to quite a few Redskin wins. (his propensity for dealing draft players for veterans) He always wanted to MINIMIZE mistakes...and felt veteran players "got this" And his love for "special teams" led to many turnovers and therefore momentum. I can remember many a Cowboy loss when a fumbled opening kickoff started the day bad!

WOW ! You have such great stories. It was always well-known here in DC that Sonny liked to party Whether hungover or sober he played a great game. I was thrilled when Vince Lombardi came to coach the Skins. Little did I know it would only be for one year. Charley Taylor was a great player. I can still hear the announcer, "And it is caught by Charley Taylor."

highfive hey Tom

I'm not going to brag , I just want to say that although it was the pre season - it gave me "closure" as a 49ers fan to see them win over the Vikings because the memory of our loss to the Vikes last season still haunts me hehehe

Correction: 75-man roster today, 53 this saturday

Can I ask everyone here ...what do you think of the "read option"? I don't like it at all. It's exposing the qb to higher risks of injury, I can't wait until that "trend" is over...

I'm shocked that Colt McCoy is our second string, Tolzien is out. BJ Daniels looks very promising...oh and there's Seneca Wallace ..

Are you all ready for Football Season? I know I am - woohooo!!!

I don't really ":hate" any team...but the Seahawks really bug me hahahaha

Let's-go-9ners! Who's got it better than us? Nooobody!!!! :D

I am ready for football that is for sure. My Tampa Bay Buccaneers should be good this year but it's all in the hands of Josh Freeman. Last year of contract and if he does not produce now he never will... Nfl Sunday ticket right around the corner....yeah!

Reena,

If you were watching that game,you know that Jim Harbaugh seemed to take advantage, of the replacement referees.
He called AT LEAST one extra timeout and had at least one extra challenge. eyepopping eyepopping boggled boggled

It would have been a real shame,if the Vikings had lost that one!
