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!
