    When D. Harvin was drafted by Dallas in this year's draft, many wondered how long it would take for him to learn the ropes and take over the offense from T. Romo. Apparently that answer is, 9 weeks. After getting benched last week, AGAIN, the coaches inserted Harvin as the starter for their week 9 tilt vs the Redskins. What??? A rookie starting a divisional game? Yes, no better time was the response given by the front office. And even though Romo snuck onto the field and got off 2 passes before anyone noticed what was happening, Harvin came in and promptly settled things down for the offense.
    But the 2nd half would start with Dallas in a 14-7 hole. And the 3rd qtr really showed where this kid needs to improve as he missed WIDE open receivers in critical situations. Sometimes you had to wonder if the ball was slipping out of his hands the way it was flying around out there. But, when it mattered most, facing a 21-10 deficit in the 4th, the rookie came thru, finding D. Bryant and J. Hannah for TDs. He also connected with D. Harris for a 2pt conversion to make 21-18 Redskins in the 4th.
    The defense did a great job holding down the fort as they forced a punt late in the 4th, giving the offense a shot at winning the game, which they did. And with just under 1:00 left and the Redskins offense driving, it was he defense who stepped up, B. Carr intercepting RGIII to seal the deal, the Cowboys winning 25-21.
    "it was an exciting win. But one that we cannot dwell on for too long. We've got our work cut out for us and a hot Packer team coming in next week," is all the coach would offer.
    The Redskins stay on the road and will visit the Browns in week 10.
