Hell Yeah, That's What I'm Talkin' About!

It wasn’t the prettiest win of the Cowboys 2008 season, but in terms of satisfaction I gotta give last night’s win over the Redskins two thumbs up!

The Cowboys topped the Redskins 14-10 in a Sunday night, edge of your seat thriller! 

After three consecutive dismal performances by Marion Barber against the Redskins, MB3 swooped in like Luke Skywalker in Revenge of the Jedi, and defeated the evil empire that is the Washington Redskins. With some pretty cool uses of the force and a few Jedi mind tricks too, Barber took control of the ground game and got the Cowboys back to their winning ways.

Marion the Barbarian” was an absolute terror on the field and was the hands down offensive MVP of the game for the Cowboys. He rushed for a grueling 114 yards on 24 carries, and almost half of it came on the final drive of the game. It sealed the deal and vaulted the Cowboys into a tie for second place in the NFC East with a 6-4 record.

On the defensive side of the ball, Jay Ratliff unleashed hell on the Redskins with a brutal assault on the Skins’ offensive line that saw him break through in punishing style and nail down two of the Cowboys’ three sacks on the night. J-Rat’s signature roar which is reminiscent of a werewolf baying at the moon, rallied the Cowboys’ defensive line who were relentless against a shocked Redskins offense that was held scoreless in the second half.

Tony Romo was back and a little rusty, but this game was clearly a tale of two grittys — The Barbarian and the Rat Man!

    Marion was the man of the night and Jay Ratliff was right behind him. It was so good to see them play like a team. It can only get better. And we all got our revenge :)
    GO COWBOYS

    Cowboys looked good out there and I hope they get better, they need to continue playing like a Team, because that will only make them a better stronger team, and that’s what they need to be when we meet up with the New Joke Giants! MB3 was awesome and so was all of the Defense, they kept Washingtons offensive on lock down!! I love the cowboys, no matter what!
    Go Cowboys
