PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Monday Night on 94WIP’s Player Lounge show, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a special Christmas message for Eagles fans.
“I just want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas, and the right way to do it is, Sunday night—even though Christmas is before Sunday—Sunday night just relax,” McCoy said.
“Turn on the channel, watch your birds manhandle the Dallas Cowgirls. Let’s go. Merry Christmas!”
While various reports say Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss the rest of season because of a back injury, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said, during a press conference Monday night, that a decision on Romo playing this week has not yet been made.
McCoy said he wants Romo to play.
“We want Dallas. We want [Tony] Romo. We want everybody! We want Dez [Bryant] too. We want your best. We want everybody,” McCoy said. “You wait this long and you put everything into it, the hard training in the offseason, get the new coach, you know, this, that and you’re finally here the last game. Put all your chips on the table.”
The anticipation for the week 17, win-or-go home NFC East Sunday Night Football showdown in Dallas between the Eagles and Cowboys is incredibly intense, even though the game is still days away.
“It’s going to be a ball game and we can’t wait. We cannot wait. It’s the first game I really just—aw, like we can play tomorrow.”
