In Washington, Dallas faces a team with the same qualities that St. Louis exhibited Sunday—a strong defense and resourceful passing. But Staubach does not care who calls the plays as long as the Cowboys can get by the Redskins.
"It's hard to beat the satisfaction a lot of us have had on this team," he says. "Once you've gotten to the Super Bowl and won it, that's the ultimate. We've been there twice, and won it once. Now there will be a lot of satisfaction just getting to the playoffs. It's not automatic anymore. We're in a dogfight. We're not a dominating football team, just a good one like a lot of others." How good, the Cowboys will find out this week.
