Not me, did not sleep worth a darn! I even took night time cold medicine because I am fighting a cold. Kept having flash backs of 3rd and 21, I tell you these Redskins are not very healthy to watch!

Guess I am going to be a zombie at work today.

Knew I wouldn't be able to sleep in my bed. Tried the living room lounge chair instead. Got about four hours in and that's it. Will need an afternoon nap - probably.

Turned the game off at halftime. 0330 comes early and I had a feeling my TV would be covered in spit at the end of the game

Slept fine....was pretty much what I expected...a close battle. This team fights even when they aren't firing on all cylinders. I can live with that for now.

I went to sleep pissed off and surprisingly...I awoke pissed off! With all the adversity on the Cowboys side of the field with injuries and our secret agent Costa this should not have been close...

I didn't have much trouble sleeping last night. The loss was disappointing but not devastating. I'll explain why.

I never posted in the "Predict the Score" thread because, as has been mentioned, I'm a "by the numbers" guy. I ran through several metrics and statistical analyses to get a handle on the game and they all came up with the similar results.

Toss-up.

Statistically this game was virtually impossible to predict in terms of one team having a distinct advantage over the other sufficient to warrant a justifiable point spread of more than 1.5. This game was going to be determined, as it was, by fewest mistakes on the field.

We made more of them. We lost.

That's why I, while disappointed, am not all that surprised-I had no way to justify an expectation in either direction. I thought we could pull it off but that decision was made based on what I perceived as advantages in immeasureables and thus subject to a lot of unceretainty.

This. Took about a half hour to get the ole heart rate down to normal. Then off to bed, 5 minutes to fall asleep, got my 4. I'm good to go.

Didn't sleep well at all. Get in the office and this jerk comes in and gets talking to me about the game. I was still pissed and came close to telling him to stfu.

For life of me I can't understand why teams don't use backup QB as holder versus the punter.

I slept just fine. I'm numb to the pain of losing these days. We've seen this movie play out this way for the better part of the last 20 years of Redskins football. The writing was on the way early in the fourth quarter. I believe our offense had 7 offensive plays in the two drives following our TD to take the lead. We kept on giving the ball back to Dallas and depended on our defense to shut the door. When you can't score points and put the final nail in the coffin, bad things usually happen. We played with fire and got burned.

Sadly, I expect games to turn out the way they did last night these days. That, I believe, is the single most frustrating part of being a Redskins fan.

I was pissed...had to read a book on cryptographic functions I knew would put me to sleep!!!!!!

here's what I'm fighting: in past years when this team dived...I was outta the house sometimes by the middle of the second qtr and playin golf to work out frustration. don't think that will happen this year. this is a better team. just missing a few ingredients.

That almost exactly describes my mind-set prior to this game. I believed (and still do) that we are a better team than the Cowboys. But I just couldn't get any kind of feeling going about what kind of game this would be. I'd never have predicted it would be as ugly, sloppy, and disjointed as it was.

I couldn't muster either a blog entry, or a score prediction.

Interestingly enough, my 'Performance Anxiety' entry is equally appropos after a tough loss. We're Redskins fans. We overreact on a mass scale. One game does not a litmus test make.
