By Stan “The Grand Imperial Poobah” Hochman

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — (Editor’s Note) Stan Hochman, a Daily News sports columnist for 55 years, has been appearing on 94WIP’s morning show for over a year now, settling disputes (and starting new ones) as the “Grand Imperial Poobah.” He brings that persona to on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we welcome input on which issues you want the Poobah to take a good, hard look at. Send requests and ideas for The Poobah to 

Without further ado, here’s The Poobah.

Phil E. Phan: So, how do you like them Cowboys now? Six in a row and alone atop the division.



Poobah: The Cowboys look formidable and if you listen to Troy Aikman, they sound invincible. The Poobah chooses not to listen to Aikman, turning the volume way down while watching the ‘Boys handle a hapless Giants team on Sunday.

You can keep thinking that Tony Romo unravels in December (never mind the 74 touchdown passes he’s thrown in that month) and that DeMarco Murray cannot keep lugging the ball that often, ignoring the fact that he is the ONLY running back in NFL history to start a season with seven straight 100-yard games, and then you remember that the Eagles play at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day which is still in November. And that they play again 17 days later. Scared? Get a dog!

The Eagles will have some key players back by then, Nick Foles will get a chance to dazzle deep in the heart of Texas, and Chip Kelly versus Jason Garrett is a no-brainer, you should excuse the expression.



You can hear Stan “The Grand Imperial Poobah” Hochman on the 94WIP Morning Show every Thursday at 7:20am E.T. Send the Philadelphia sports issues you want The Poobah to tackle to
