I always look forward to Monday Night Football, but I can't believe we've got Washington vs. Dallas tonight. Yuck! This match-up is supposed to mean something, but this game tonight could be brutal to watch. Is it possible that neither team will win?

I hope it ends in a tie.

No offense to fans of these teams, but I hate them both. As a matter of fact, there is nothing I like more than seeing both of these teams, especially the Cowboys, do so bad.

No problem here, I haven't been able to pick up ABC since 9-11-01 so no MNF for me here. Fortunately, I've found that I have got absolutely no must-see programs that I watch on ABC, all the programs that I watch are either on Fox or CBS. (besides DBS stuff which I don't subscribe to the local channels)

I will watch almost any NFL game, but I cannot bring myself to watch this debacle tonight. ABC's promo should be "Cowboys vs. Redskins... someone has to win!" At least it should be a closer game than last Monday's mismatch -- maybe the final score will be 2-0.

I grew up watching Dallas, and I don't even really care about the Redskins back then.
Now, however, I do care about the Redskins. I hate their guts. Last year, they were the most over-rated team I'd ever seen. I had some bandwagon friends who hated the St. Louis Rams because they think they fluked their Super Bowl. I say you oughta hate teams because they don't live up to potential. And to top it off, owner Daniel Snyder is a jerk. That's not to say that Jerry Jones is a saint either, but if I had to pick and choose, I'd rather have Jerry Jones.

This is a perfect example of why gambling on NFL games is so popular. Without some $$$ on either team, no one, even the player's own parents, would watch.

Then again, there's always the A's/Yankees in Game 5!

This is easily the most important football game of the year so far. If the Cowboys win, I win my office pool.

David, you are correct, it is a very important game. I'm up by 1 point in my fantasy football match this week. I've got Emmitt Smith starting tonight, and my opponent has Stephen Davis starting. I think we're the only ppl in the leage with a player from either team that ever gets a start. Perhaps this explains why we're so far down in the standings...
However, you couldn't get me to watch this game if you paid me. Well ok, I'd do it for about 50 bucks.

This game does mean a lot to diehard Cowboys and Redskins. I was watching in '89 and was so elated with the 'Boys ONE win was against the Redskins. Again, I will be cheering on my team to continue the recent trend of wins vs the hated 'Skins. I just hope my team can turn it around as quickly as '89.........
Any more sucker teams like the Vikings want to make a trade?

I'm a big fan of the NFL and this game is going to be like a car wreck, you just have to take a look.
I really really really don't like the Cowboys, and as a KC Chiefs fan I take twisted pleasure in seeing "Marty Ball" be even less successful in DC than it was in KC. Heck the Redskins are even worse than the 1-4 Chefs so far this season!
If it was possible for both teams to loose a football game, these two would I'm sure find a way.
Here's hoping for a tie at least!

And what is worse is that MNF had to know this was coming! This is a horrible matchup between two bottom dweller teams. Watch this one end up in a 13-13 tie. Too bad MNF didn't use their heads and have either Bucs/Titans, Rams/Giants, Jets/Dolphins, or Raiders/Colts on tonight. One must wonder what went through the MNF scheduler's head or what they were smoking when this decision was made.

The only problem is that there is no one in the Dallas front office smart enough to make such a trade. Until Jerry Jones puts his massive ego aside and admits that Jimmy Johnson built the last Super Bowl teams in Dallas, the 'boys will continue to suck. Drafting Quincy Carter in the second round when most other teams did not even have him on their draft boards is a perfect example of Jones' lack of football knowledge.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN had the best quote regarding Quincy Carter. He said Dallas's starting QB would not even have been starting for his college team if he would have stayed in school this season.
Being a longtime anti-Cowboy fan, I am enjoying this.

I just flipped the game on. 3-0?!?!?!? I though I was seeing a Tom Glavine v. Randy Johnson matchup. Someone get on base already.

Sweeeeeet... at least they had a good shot of a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader as they cut to commercial. Guess I can watch a little more.

Hey, the Redskins scored a touchdown. Ooh, ah. Just prior to that, I was amused that ABC, when doing highlights of the game tonight, showed footage of a Redskins-Cowboys game from many years ago. There was nothing worth showing as highlights from tonight's game to that point.

For as bad a game as that was tonight, it had a good ending. Of course, the Cowboys winning drive was set up by a Stephen Davis fumble in the clutch.
These two teams are awful.

After reading the recap of the game this morning, I'm glad we decided to watch a movie last night. Those two teams may both be worse than the Lions.
