Redskins-Cowboys: The good, the bad and the ugly

Here’s a quick and dirty look at the positives, negatives and vomit-inducing from Monday night’s defeat in Big D.

The Good:
The defense. The Redskins defense is approximately 9,000,000 percent better than it was last year. The Cowboys didn't score a touchdown. LaRon Landry is a beast and it's good to have him back. London Fletcher had a motivating speech on top of the Cowboys center star. This unit is on their way to be something special.
This was an all-too familiar sight for Redskins fans on Monday night. (Toni L. Sandys - Washington Post)

Pick your hero and goat of the week from the game in our live chat at 11 a.m.

First place. Hey, the Redskins are 2-1 and at the top of the division. That's a good thing. Taking the emotional gut punch out of it, the Redskins are still in a better place than almost all of us thought they would be.

Good Rex. The swagger. The game management. The generally throwing the ball away instead of the terrible interceptions. It's almost enough to make you think that Redskins have a real quarterback. And then again...

The Bad:
Bad Rex. Holy crap, that was a terrible interception Rex threw in the first half. And holy moly, did I get nervous every time he dropped back to pass. And Jiminy Christmas, was that an awful job of finishing the final drive. How could he let himself get sacked and fumble the ball at the end of the game? And why couldn't they have run the ball just a little bit? Doesn't this also make you think that an offensive coordinator shouldn't be young enough to be named "Kyle?" I think I've gotten off on a rant here.

Introducing: Bad Rex. (Toni L. Sandys - Post)

Losing to the [bleeping] Cowboys. Cowboys fans are possibly the worst fans in sports. For whatever reason, these are people that want to reject where they are from and then decide to latch on to another city's team. Cowboys fans are essentially the parasites of NFL fandom. And it hurts to see these bandwagon jackwagons happy.

The Ugly:

The beatification of Tony Romo. Every ESPN talking head picked the Cowboys. When the broadcast team wasn't complimenting LaRon Landry on his fabulous body, they were spending their efforts talking about how awesome Tony Romo is. I mean, we all know how the Cowboys are important to the national sports scene, but really? Tony Romo "did his job," Ron Jaworski? Not scoring touchdowns is his job? Fumbling snaps is his job? Wincing repeatedly is his job? I think Ed Werder's first question to Tony Romo was "Tony, can you tell us how awesome you are?" America's Team? More like The American Media's Team. Bah.
