*After a poor performance from Rex Grossman, Mike Shanahan will be reminded that he said Grossman looked “impressive” in practice in the week leading up to the Dallas game. “Oh, did I say ‘impressive’?” Shanahan will respond. “I meant ‘a little better than John Beck.’” *In this time of Thanksgiving, and following another ultra-efficient performance by Tony Romo, even the most vicious Romo-haters will be glad that Dallas doesn’t have a tepid quarterback controversy on their hands involving guys named Beck and Grossman. *Heeding Jimmy Johnson’s advice that one must “put ego aside” when working with Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett will say nothing when Jones selfishly grabs the last slice of pizza on the flight back to Dallas. *After years of playing against the Redskins at FedEx Field, Romo will be really excited when he finally sees the arrow between the “E” and the “X” in the FedEx logo. *Saddled behind Roy Helu and Ryan Torain on the Washington depth chart, Tashard Choice
