The Greastest Tribute Ever!!!

Postby jason54858 » Mon Dec 03, 2007 2:43 am

First of all I am born in Dallas and grew up in Dallas. I have been a Cowboy fan my whole life. That being said I have always been told to hate you guys, but when the tragic shooting of Sean Taylor I morned for him and his family but still not so much the Redskins as an organization. That changed during that Bills game. When i saw ten men on the field on defense leaving a spot for Taylor. I actaully shed a tear. I believe that had to have been the greatest thing I have ever seen in my short life.

GO REDSKINS!!!!!!
I look at your organization in a new light now.

yeah, i thought that was amazing. thanks for your post, we appreciate it
There are only two teams I root for in the NFL. The Skins, and whoever is playing Dallas.

It's okay that we drafted a Landry. After this season, the crygirls will have a new association with that name.

Thanks for the post.

I agree. That gesture was one of the most touching things I had ever seen. That was one of the best things about yesterday.

It was awesome. Too bad the bills didn't have enough respect to take a delay of game and exploited the 10 man D.

i am not sure the bills even knew... and if they did, it wasn't like threw over the top. they ran a sweep to the left. hardly a play that can't be stopped without a free safety. also, even if they took a delay, that would not constitute an actual play, so we would have done the same thing again.

They could have taken the delay. We could have gone offsides and then the game could have moved forward.

Speaking of the 'boys, I was touched they all played with 21 stickers on their helmets Thursday night. I'm not sure how many 'skins fans saw that, because it was a 'boys game and it was on NFLN, but I saw it, and I look at YOUR organization in a new light now. Truly a CLASSY move by a hated (but now respected!) division rival.

Murs.. just an FYI.. ALL the NFL teams wore the #21 on their helmets this weekend. Good move by the NFL on that one.
