Trolling The Nation During Redskins @ Cowboys: "Cowboys just are a monster team right now."

New, comments

Savor every last detail of Thursday's game as you read through what other fans had to say as they watched the Cowboys beat the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

That turned out to be a tasty Thanksgiving treat the Cowboys served yesterday, and here's your chance to re-live the Redskins game from other fans' perspective, understand how other fans view the Dallas Cowboys, witness the horror in people's reactions as they watch a couple of rookies shred one opponent after another, and read how other fans grudgingly, angrily, or dejectedly realize that the 2016 Cowboys are pretty good.

As usual, all quotes below are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

First Quarter
Eagles Have to root for Dallas 2 weeks in a row. Sigh……

KICKOFF
Eagles Good Grief. They’re making that defense look like scrubs. Cowboys just are a monster team right now. Seahawks may have to handle them in the playoffs.

Rams Holy heck is the Cowboys line good. I’d fancy my chances of going through progressions or being able to hit a hole from behind that, and I am a short, out-of-shape feller.
