PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — In one word, how would you describe the Dallas Cowboys?
That’s what 94WIP’s Marc Farzetta asked some of the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of the Week 9 Sunday Night Football matchup between the two NFC East foes.

Defensive lineman Bennie Logan had the strongest response.
“Hatred,” Logan said. “We hate them they hate us, the fans hate each other. Pure hatred.”
Logan is becoming a fan-favorite in Philly thanks to, of course, his dominance against the run—but also because of his “Ask Bennie Anything” segment Wednesday’s at 5:00 p.m. on The Josh Innes Show. Logan expanded Wednesday on 94WIP about his hatred for the Cowboys.
“They just whine and complain about everything,” Logan said. “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.”

Speaking with Farzetta, Eagles rookie corner Eric Rowe echoed some of the same sentiment.
“From the last game, I saw at least on the offensive side, a lot of them cried a lot,” Rowe explained. “They also want a lot of penalties. I saw Jason Witten, every time he was covered he looked for a flag and complained and pointed at the ref. 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.”
Second-year wide receiver, Jordan Matthews, talked about the intense nature of Eagles-Cowboys rivalry.
“When it’s Cowboys Week and [you’re among fans] people are like, ‘Hey bring this one home!’
“It’s a serious deal,” he told Farzetta. “It’s funny it seems like every eagles fan knows a cowboys fan really well. They’re like, ‘I need this because my aunt, I got to talk junk to her or my brother,’ or something like that. So it’s really serious, so you definitely want to go out there and get the win for the city.”
