In his weekly appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike, Hog emeritus, green chile mogul and professional studmuffin Mark Schlereth talked about how beating Dallas would bring a little extra motivation to Washington.
Stink said from a players’ perspective, the spoiler role can be a rallying cry for a losing team.
“Especially if you’re playing a division rival that you can’t stand,” Schlereth said on the show.
“For the Washington Redskins, you know you can’t stand the Dallas Cowboys, and nothing would make a horrific season feel a little bit – it’d be a little bit more palatable – feel a little bit better, than knocking the Cowboys down a rung and hopefully keeping them out of the playoffs.”
As Mike Greenberg explained, a Redskins victory coupled with an Eagle’s win over the Bears would eliminate the Cowboys from postseason contention.
Schlereth stayed on with Mike & Mike to talk about how he made defensive linemen like Mike Golic miserable and received a knockout blow from a man named Leslie.
