Five observations on Redskins-Cowboys
By Dan Graziano
In case you missed it, here's a look at my weekly column for ESPNDallas.com. I looked at five hot topics leading up to Sunday night's Redskins-Cowboys matchup. Here's an excerpt:
5. If you're a Cowboys fan, your biggest worry Sunday night has to be lil' Santana Moss. This guy loves playing the Cowboys more than any other team. And if you put him in a national TV situation on a Sunday or Monday night, things can get out of hand. I'll never forget future bankrupt quarterback Mark Brunell finding a streaking Moss for two late touchdowns in a Redskins comeback win over the Cowboys on Sept. 19, 2005.
Moss recently told me that he's been watching film of how Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan used Andre Johnson in Houston. The younger Shanahan thinks Moss is capable of doing a lot of the same things that Johnson accomplished with the Texans -- and that's a scary thought for Dallas cornerbacks Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins.
Programming note: I'll have a blog column on Donovan McNabb's debut Thursday that will likely be published at 2 p.m. ET.
