Breaking out the fiery passion that has made him a success on the field and radio waves, Walker fired up the crowds, leading them in a classic rendition of “We Want Dallas!”
Nothing like upstaging the general manager at a pep rally:

The Burgundy and Gold Fan Club of Dallas has officially kicked off their Redskins Rally at Champps Americana in Irving, Texas. If you’re in the area, there’s plenty of time to come out here and see Doc Walker, Larry Michael, (me, of course), and a whole host of other familiar names in Redskins Nation.
I have never seen this many Redskins-clad, burgundy-blooded fans outside of the DMV. What a great crowd!
The emcee began the festivities by saying, “I understand that there are still some Dallas fans here as we begin tonight, so for them, I’ll talk really slow.”
A roar of delight went up from the Redskins faithful, and people got in line for a free “Beat Dallas” T-shirt. If you’re in the area, come get your shirt before the run out!
See you out here:
855 W. John Carpenter Fwy.

On the most recent injury report, the Redskins have some question marks at tight end and fullback, which could lead to gametime decisions on activations and deactivations.
No panic for head coach Mike Shanahan, however, who explained that injuries are all just part of the process.
“We try to play the best 46 players we can,” he said. “We’ve got a game plan going in, and hopefully people will be as healthy as they can be. But that’s part of the process to evaluate on game day who can be up, who’s not, and be able to run all the type of substitution groups you’re hoping that you can run. But you work on it during the week. We usually use a little bit of everything – two backs, one back, some four-wides, some tight end and three-wides. We’ve been doing that for a long time, so hopefully we’ll have that flexibility.”
When multiple players are injured at the same position, the game-planning begins earlier in the week so that both players are ready, if possible, at game time.
“You can see it during the week,” Shanahan explained. “If you’ve got somebody limited in practice, you’re playing two guys – one guy that knows he’s going to play and a guy behind him that you’re not really sure is going to play. So you’ve got to work on that early in the week and you’ve got to have a plan for it.”
