Just wanted to air my disappointment with three decisions that I think cost us (the Redskins) the win over our arch division rival Dallas Cowboys. Twice, Coach Mike Shanahan elected to go for ridiculously long field goals (almost 50 yards), leaving Dallas with great field position after Redskin misses.

Third, Once again, Good Rex, Bad Rex, made a crucial and critical bad decision on the last drive. While already in good field positon for a potentially game winning field goal, Rex is sacked for a loss after scrambling around trying to make a play that wasn't there. Losing over 5 yards, and making the field goal attempt to be a 52 yarder. Of course, the Redskins kicker missed the feld goal. On the first missed field goal, Redskins should have punted to pin the Cowboys back - but elected to go for a 49 yard field goal, while already up by 7.

If  the Rex's seems like dez ja vu, it was. On the earlier meeting with the Cowboys, with a couple of time out in the Redskins pocket on a potentially game winning drive, Rex forces a pass which is intercepted, when all he needed was about 15 yards to get in to makeable field goal range. At the time Redskin had 2nd down and short - and Rex could have taken two safe passing attempts to pick up the necessary  yardage for a makeable field goal attempt. Yes, Rex is still good and mostly bad.
