Shanahan and Coughlin's history goes way back

To most, a Cowboys fan in the Washington Redskins marching band would be unthinkable. So how about two Cowboys fans?

A pair of drummers in the Skins band admitted their allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys. In fact, they took pride in being Cowboys fans and said it has no impact on their performance.

"24/7," percussionist Myles Overton said of his Cowboys fandom. "Openly, proudly."

Overton clearly was not hiding his favorite team, as he and fellow Dallas fan David Clark tailgated outside of their blue van, complete with the Cowboys star.

"It's about the tailgating and the camaraderie," Overton said of hanging out with the Redskins band. 

Asked what happens when the Cowboys come to FedEx Field, Overton said nothing changes for him when he has to play the team's famous fight song.

"I play Hail to the Redskins just the way I always play it."
