WE WANT DALLAS: Best Eagles trash talk of the week

Share

WE WANT DALLAS. So chanted Philadelphia Eagles fans at Lincoln Financial Field as they watched their team handily dismantle the Tennessee Titans.

The scenario is perfect to frame the conditions for a showdown of epic proportions. Philadelphia. Dallas. Thanksgiving Day. Tied records. Fight for number one in the division. It’s the showdown that has Eagles fans more interested in the game then what’s on the table, and players can’t help but get caught up in the emotion as well.

You don’t like Dallas? Neither do they. Here are some of the best lines from Eagles players this week about why they hate Dallas.

Brent Celek: “We take on a little bit of what the fans feel,. If a fans dislike a team, we dislike a team. We’re all in this thing together. I don’t like Dallas.

Josh Huff (who’s from Houston): “I’ve always hated the Cowboys. It’s just a little Houston vs. Dallas thing. I’ve always hated the Cowboys. There was always so much history there in those Cowboys vs. Texans games in the battle of the state, to see who was better.”

Bennie Logan: “Yeah, they’re OK. I don’t really know what’s great about them.”

Nolan Carroll: “It’s all a show at Jerry’s World.”

Sufficiently pumped? No, you’re not. Here’s a side of Bradley Cooper dissing on Dallas to push you over the edge.

If you’re traveling to get home or anywhere else for the holidays, please travel safely, Eagles fans!

Philadelphia Eagles add TE Zach Ertz and DT Bennie Logan in Day 2 of draft action

In Day Two of the NFL Draft, Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles did proceed as some anticipated in the second round by drafting a quarterback. Instead, in the 2nd round (35th overall pick) they drafted Stanford tight end Zach Ertz, and in the third (67th overall) added LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan to their ranks.

Kelly is all too familiar with Ertz (6’5, 249 lbs) and clearly had time while Oregon played Stanford in the Pac-12  to develop admiration for him. In fact, in Oregon’s single loss in the 2012 season, Ertz caught the tying touchdown pass.

In his final college season, Ertz  finished with 69 catches (the highest on the team) for 898 yards and six scores. In their prospect analysis of him, NFL.com compares Ertz to Jason Witten—not too shabby at all.

Coach Kelly described why he wanted Ertz as a part of Philadelphia’s defense: Continue reading ‘Philadelphia Eagles add TE Zach Ertz and DT Bennie Logan in Day 2 of draft action’
