Sunday’s Eagles game against Dallas has fans in fight mode.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett announced Friday that Romo underwent back surgery on Friday morning, and is out for the remainder of the season. Kyle Orton will start in place of Romo.
With the Cowboys banged up, the Eagles look to be heading in to a win-or-go-home NFC East Division championship match-up in the final week of the regular season.
I always believed a bad season would bring out the best in Kelly’s sarcasm, but as it turns out, wins are doing the trick. If we can get a combination of Eagles wins, and Chip sarcastically berating media questions for a decade, I’m all in.
SportsRadio 94WIP will get the City of Brotherly Love ready for Sunday night’s division deciding battle vs the hated Dallas Cowboys with a special pep rally and a one hour special “Eagles-Cowboys Rivalry Retrospective” this Friday, December 27th beginning at 1PM.
Forget everything about what happened in the earlier meeting between the Eagles and Cowboys. The Eagles were in the midst of a quarterback revolving door between Nick Foles and Mike Vick and had not quite found their offensive identity. That has changed now. The Eagles offense is firing on all cylinders and should be able to play well against this Dallas defense that really struggles to stop much of anything.
Chip Kelly received an impromptu visit from Santa Claus, an early Christmas wish to beat the Dallas Cowboys and the Eagles coach also spoke about the upcoming challenge of facing Tony Romo this Sunday for the NFC East title during his day-after press conference at the NovaCare Complex.
Fans chant “we want Dallas” at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday night.
His number will be retired in Philadelphia this Spring, but Allen Iverson will be cheering for the Cowboys this winter.
The Eagles couldn’t have been very happy on the flight home from Minnesota.
There were two things that cheered me up after Sunday’s Eagles loss. First, the Cowboys blew it, as the Cowboys often do. Second, Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference was full of Kelly sarcastic goodness.
The Cowboys had a collapse of historic proportions on Sunday, as they blew a 26-3 lead to the Packers, losing 37-36 to Green Bay and backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
The Eagles could have made things easy on themselves by winning, as they were expected to, in Minnesota on Sunday. Thankfully, the Cowboys also decided to make things more difficult on themselves by blowing a 26-3 lead to the Packers, and losing as well.
DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns, backup Lance Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing and the Dallas Cowboys overcame Oakland’s fumble return for a score on the opening kickoff to beat the Raiders 31-24 Thursday.
If the Eagles can take advantage of their newly discovered home cooking, then they could have the upper hand in the schedule breakdown, but a win against the Cowboys is likely going to be a requirement regardless of what else happens.
