Dallas Cowboys-Washington Redskins rivalry Flashback

On December 16,1979 the NFC East championship and home field advantage was on the line for the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach engineered a miraculous fourth-quarter comeback giving the Dallas Cowboys a 35-34 win.

The week leading up to the game, Cowboys’ defensive end Harvey Martin received a funeral wreath, allegedly sent by a member of the Washington Redskins. Martin, kept it in his locker all week for motivation and after the Cowboys win, he ran into the Redskins’s locker room opened the door and threw the funeral wreath into the room, breaking up their team prayer.

Draft Breakdown: Morris Claiborne

1st Round/6th Pick/6th Overall


Morris Claiborne Scouting Report:

Wes Bunting of National Football Post



  • Great man-to-man coverage skills
  • Athletic
  • Sure hands
  • Capable return man
  • Plays with confidence


  • Relies too much on athleticism
  • Poor tackling technique
  • A bit undersized at 5-foot-11, 188 pounds
  • Struggles in zone coverage
  • Gambles too much

My Opinion

When the Dallas Cowboys traded the 14th pick and the 45th overall (second round) picks to the St. Louis Rams for the sixth pick you could tell something big was on the horizon. The buzz was in the air at the Cowboys Draft party. People were waiting with excitement when Roger Goodell walked up to the stage and announced that the Cowboys selected the “SEC Defensive Player of the Year “Morris Claiborne with the 6th pick the crowd roared.

Our secondary received a needed boost when we drafted Claiborne. One of our biggest weaknesses last season was addressed and we are looking strong at the corner position!

TrueBlueNation Draft Grade: A+

Justin Wages Mock Draft

Let’s cut straight to the chase, here is my First Round Mock Draft:

Colts: Andrew Luck (QB, Stanford) Do I Need an Explanation?

Deadskins: Robert Griffin III (QB, Baylor) Do I?

Vikings: Justin Blackmon (WR, Oklahoma State) A WR for developing QB Christian Ponder is a GREAT Idea.

Browns: Trent Richardson (HB, Alabama) Goodbye Hillis, but HELLLLOOOO Richardson.

Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne (DB, LSU) The Bucs have almost no secondary, enough said.

Rams: Matt Kalil (OL, USC) Strengthening the OL doesn’t seem like a bad idea.

Jaguars: Melvin Ingram (DE, South Carolina) The Jaguars have never really had the pass rush they’ve wanted. Ingram=Answer.

Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill (QB, Texas A&M) No Brainer.

Panthers: Michael Floyd (WR, Notre Dame) Another big target for Cam Newton will mean that Carolina WILL be good this year.

Bills: Riley Reiff (OT, Iowa) Beefin’ up that Offensive Line.

Chiefs: Dontari Poe (DT, Memphis) The Chiefs, like the Jags, don’t have an elite pass rush. Poe could bring that to an end.

Seahawks: Quinton Coples (DE, UNC) Coples is the outside rush that Seattle needs to keep up with San Francisco.

Cardinals: David DeCastro (OL, Stanford) Protect the QB. Arizona failed last year.

COWBOYS: Mark Barron (DB, Alabama) We NEED a Safety to help on the deep passes we got burned on last year.

Shegals: Fletcher Cox (DT, Miss. State) The Shegals have the secondary but need a bit more Rush, Tom Sawyer anyone?

Jets: Luke Kuechly (LB, Boston College) How do you pronounce that name? Who cares? It fills the Jets opening void at LB.

Bengals: Cordy Glenn (OT, Georgia) Focus on OL for your 1st pick here, OL is goin’ fast and Cincinnati has another pick.

Chargers: Dre Kirkpatrick (DB, Alabama) Take some work off of Weddle, he can’t do everything… or can he?

Bears: Courtney Upshaw (DE, Alabama) The Bears offense is good, their pass rush, like many other teams, needs to be improved.

Titans: Stephon Gilmore (DB, South Carolina) How many more do I have to explain??? Courtland Finnegan…

Bengals: Kendall Wright (WR, Baylor) Another big target for Andy Dalton, also takes some pressure off of A.J. Green.

Browns: Brandon Weeden (QB, Oklahoma State) Elder backup for Colt McCoy. Possible starter of the near future?

Lions: Jonathan Martin (OL, Stanford) Gives Stafford more time to throw to Madden 13 cover athlete Calvin Johnson.

Steelers: Joe Adams (WR, Arkansas) Hines Ward is gone, meet his replacement.

Broncos: Brandon Thompson (DT, Clemson) This guy could be double teamed, opens up holes for Von Miller and Co

Texans: Stephen Hill (WR, Georgia Tech) Andre Johnson’s injury wasn’t what crippled the season, but they need another WR.

Patriots: Jared Crick (DE, Nebraska) D-Line getting old (And Fat).

Packers: Dont’a Hightower (LB, Alabama) Hightower would be an awesome complement to Hawk and Matthews.

Ravens: Shea McClellin (LB, Boise State) Ray Lewis is almost out of gas…

49ers: Janoris Jenkins (DB, Northern Alabama) Stellar Offense Amazing Defense, just a little more juice and they’re Superbowl bound.

Patriots: Michael Brockers (DT, LSU) Best remaining player slipping through the cracks to back up a fat guy, nice…

Giants: LaMichael James (HB, Oregon) Loss of Brandon Jacobs makes the need for having the 1-2 punch with Bradshaw back.
