For those of you that care, I do a Monday Column for SB Nation D.C. and during football season (starting tomorrow) called "Chain Reactions," with observations on the Redskins, Terps, Navy and anything local-ish on the gridiron. I also do a little radio when stations ask and co-host The Brian MItchell Show on 106.7 The Fan on Saturdays from 10-2 p.m.
Nothing is better than a Redskins/Cowboys showdown ... well IF the Redskins beat them. Otherwise, you have to listen to those annoying Cowboy fans, and we all know that type. Before we start, a couple week one notes that you may or may not care to know.
- Head coach Mike Shanahan is 12-4 (.750) in openers and his 12 wins are the most by active coach.
- The Cowboys are celebrating their 50th Anniversary -- I know, who cares -- and they are 34-15-1 (.694) on kickoff weekend, the best mark in NFL.
- The Cowboys also have a league-best 32-18 (.640) record in road openers.
