You’ve got to hand it to the Washington Redskins. The two-win team with no buzz creates drama on the eve of its game against division leading Dallas. How? With a quarterback controversy, of course. Colt McCoy stepped in for struggling Kirk Cousins to lead the ‘Skins to a win over the woeful Titans. McCoy is the more experienced, more expensive Cousins. Now, Coach Jay Gruden feeds you a McCoy vs. Griffin banquet to lure an audience to the Monday night contest with the Cowboys. See what he did there? Pure genius.
The Cowboys won’t be fooled. Neither should you. The Cowboys will prepare for the last player they saw on the field. They would love, however, to see a rusty Robert Griffin III instead of McCoy. Heck they might open running lanes for him just to test the durability of his ankle and knees with hard hits. Both McCoy and Griffin are popular in Texas. That’s a pre-game morsel for Cowboys fans. This scenario could not have been better scripted if Roger Goodell personally wrote it.
