Dak Prescott vs. Alex Smith is just the latest in a long line of mirror-image QB matchups between Cowboys and Redskins

Dak Prescott vs. Alex Smith is just the latest in a long line of mirror-image QB matchups between Cowboys and Redskins

I can’t tell you how many pages the Dak Prescott vs. Alex Smith chapter will fill in the storied Cowboys-Redskins rivalry, only that it begins Sunday at 3:25 p.m. The new Washington quarterback is 34 years old and the Dallas signal-caller has been viewed as someone on a short leash, or at least he was until last Sunday’s celebrated picnic with Jacksonville.But it’s not the first time that Dallas-Washington quarterbacks have been -- to some degree -- mirror images of each other. In fact, during the best of times for these teams, we have seen this at least three times already.(We will get...

5 things to know about the Redskins: Alex Smith is now the QB, but can he end the Cowboys' dominance over Washington?

The Cowboys travel to Washington to play the Redskins on Sunday. Here are five things Cowboys fans need to know about the NFC East rival. New QBThe Cowboys won't face Kirk Cousins when they play the Redskins on Sunday. Alex Smith will be under center for Washington instead.

The Redskins Passing Game Woes - Who’s to Blame?

The Redskins Passing Game Woes - Who’s to Blame?

The departure of Kirk Cousins and the trade for Alex Smith this spring left most fans a bit bewildered. Some thought Alex’s leadership, intelligence and athleticism would be a better fit for Jay Gruden’s system, while others thought the 33 year old was too cautious and didn’t like to take shots downfield. So far in the early portion of the season, the Alex Smith experiment has been a bit up and down. He hasn’t made plays in some ugly losses, and he’s been a bit too careful with the football, and a tad bit gun-shy in the pocket, when he’s had the opportunity to further the lead...

Alex Smith Has the Talent - But Does he Have the Necessary Support to Succeed in D.C.?
