Redskins Cowboys on Thanksgiving. It doesn’t get any better than this. RG3 has been very vocal that even though he grew up in Texas he is NOT a Cowboy fan. He’s been posting “Back in Texas and on a mission” on Facebook and Twitter. He even met with Joe Gibbs this week to discuss the rivalry. This is going to be a good one. This will be the seventh time the Redskins have played the Cowboys on Thanksgiving and they’ve never won. I think lucky number seven will be theirs.
The Redskins, especially RG3, is coming off a huge win over the Eagles last week. The Cowboys? An overtime win against the then 2-7 Browns with a FG, however, they have the cockiness and arrogance that the Redskins have to defend against the most. The defenders of the Cowboys have been very clear that they’re aimed at getting RG3 and this was days after the Redskins drafted him. Keep it clean Cowboys.
Both London Fletcher and Pierre Garcon are questionable for today. With Fletcher’s consecutive game streak on the line, you will see him on the field.
I will be enjoying the game with the last of my Redskin Bud Lights and eating dinner with my family with some Redskins Reserve wine (thank you Amy and Day Day) so whatever the result, it’s going to be a great afternoon.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and HTTR!

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
