Who says NFL divisional rivalries are dead?
The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys will square off for the second time this season Sunday night in an NFC East clash.
The Cowboys got the better of that first game, winning 20-10 in Week 2, but the Eagles are determined to set the record straight against a banged-up Dallas squad. And they’re talking a whole lot of trash in the meantime.
“They just whine and complain about everything,” Eagles defensive lineman Bennie Logan said Friday on CBS Sports Radio affiliate WIP 94, via CBSSports.com. “Shut up and play ball. I’m gonna hit you hard every snap. Stop complaining about this and this. That just bugs me. You’re a man. It’s football. Shut up and get hit and take it like a man.”
Well, there you have it.
Logan wasn’t the only Philly player who piled on the 2-5 Cowboys. Here’s Eagles rookie defensive back Eric Rowe:
“From the last game, I saw at least on the offensive side, a lot of them cried a lot. They also want a lot of penalties. I saw (Cowboys tight end) Jason Witten, every time he was covered he looked for a flag and complained and pointed at the ref. A couple of the receivers were looking at the refs looking for PI (pass interference).
“Cry babies? Well, yeah if you want to put it like that.”
Get your popcorn ready, folks. It should be a testy affair at Jerry World.
