I'm a Cowboy fan living about 20 miles outside of Washington DC, and with the biggest Cowboys-redskins game of the last umpteen years or so upon us, I thought it might be interesting to keep up with what takes the Washington media has on Dallas this week. Doing this as a fanpost because I intend to keep updating as I find more from the local media outlets.
Update: A more even handed view, though the headlines were declaring it a Win-win for Washington...sounds like the locals are getting nervous; http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/redskins-cowboys-next-sunday-winner-take-all/2012/12/23/8bfb63b6-4d55-11e2-950a-7863a013264b_story.html?hpid=z3
First of all, the esteemed Washington Post with a Jekyll and Hyde characterization of the Cowboys, with some stuff about identity in there. Perhaps true of the Cowboys, though probably also true of most of the other teams as well.
There's not much from the Washington Times yet, but there is this note on the game being flexed, as many of us anticipated.
There's also not much from the Examiner (a local paper that focuses on commuters), just a standard recap, but with a line about this end of season play-in being more or less the usual for the Cowboys.
I don't know if anyone here will be attending the game, but per WTOP (kind of like KRLD), metro will be open late. http://wtop.com/357/3170166/Metro-to-stay-open-late-for-Redskins-game
That's all the news for now, but I'm sure there will be plenty of hoopla as it's "Cowboys week" here in DC/VA/MD.
