Have to respect Redskins' running game

IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys are so concerned about quarterback Jason Campbell and wide receiver Santana Moss that they forgot about respecting the run on the Redskins' first possession of the first half. The modified statue of liberty was a nice touch, and then the Redskins got the Cowboys to bite on a fake end around.

Great kick out block by Chris Cooley on DeMarcus Ware to spring the play, but Washington has to be disappointed with only getting three points. The Redskins had two touchdowns called back because of penalties. No excuse for center Casey Rabach being downfield on Randle El's touchdown.

The other penalty was a hold. Zorn and Campbell, two fairly mild-mannered guys were visibly upset on the sideline. It looks like the Cowboys have decided to make getting the ball to T.O. a priority in the second half. Not sure what took them so long. Maybe it was the fact that Shawn Springs was completely taking T.O. out of the game with solid jams at the line of scrimmage.

I prefer slow jams myself.
