PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There has been no shortage of back and forth between the Eagles and the Giants this week. There is no love lost between these two teams and that has never been more clear than this week.
On Thursday, Tom Coughlin stepped in to voice his displeasure with all the chatter. “Talk is cheap, play the game,” Coughlin told reporters.
Come on Coughlin. What would the Eagles and Giants rivalry be without a little talk? Let’s recap shall we?
Antrel Rolle got the party started for us earlier this week when he discredited the Eagles 2013 divisional title and said that the Birds were not the team to beat in Sunday’s game. The Giants also provided some bulletin board material for the Eagles when Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie took a jab at the Eagles’ Super Bowl deficiency.
Then, it was Bradley Cooper to the rescue. The actor and Philly native voiced another #FlyEaglesFly video that taught us all the best way to shut a “loudmouth,” New York sports fan up.
Enter Jason Pierre-Paul who did little to show off his mathematical prowess when he said the Eagles could easily be 0-4 in his opinion. Only problem is the Eagles have played five games.
Eagles’ center Jason Kelce didn’t let JPP slide for his miscalculation. “Well my response to that is, I don’t think Jason Pierre-Paul is smart enough to come up with that statement on his own,” Kelce said. Ouch!
Even Lawrence Tynes had something to say. That’s right…a kicker chimed in.
