The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are playing on Sunday for the NFC East title. The last time the teams met was in Week 12 when the Redskins won 38-31. Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III had a big game that day and threw for 311 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in the win. Cowboys franchise legend Drew Pearson says Dallas’ defense let RG3 do too much in that game and they need to make life more difficult for him, even if that means receiving unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. “We gave RG3 a lot of confidence playing against the Cowboys in our first game here in Cowboys Stadium, so we need to take it to him,” Pearson told Ben & Skin on ESPN Radio Dallas. “We need to let him know that it’s not going to be that easy or we’re not going to lay down for them and we’re not intimidated by him. The way you do that is you go out on that field and you knock him around. Even if it costs you a 15-yard penalty, and I’m only saying this if it’s not a critical situation or anything. Sometimes you have to deliver that kind of blow and that kind of message to let him know it’s going to be like this all day and not a walk in the park. We need to establish this with RG3 and the Redskins as well.” Cowboys fans are probably fired up at the thought of the defense sending Griffin a message with some hits, but how ethical is it to plan to commit personal fouls? As long Dallas goes after him and hits him within the rules, I have no problem with it, but if they’re hitting him late or with unnecessary roughness, that won’t be cool.
