The Eagles may not be very good at the moment, but they sure are talking like champions.
At 3-4, Philadelphia has been a major disappointment, but that hasn’t stopped a few players from doing a ton of chirping entering Sunday’s matchup with the last-place Cowboys, calling them “cry babies.”
“They just whine and complain about everything,” defensive tackle Bennie Logan said on 94WIP, according to NJ.com. “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.
“Hatred,” Logan said. “We hate them they hate us, the fans hate each other. Pure hatred.”
Rookie cornerback Eric Rowe added fuel to the fire.
“From the last game, I saw at least on the offensive side, a lot of them cried a lot,” Rowe told CBS Philly. “They also want a lot of penalties. I saw [tight end] 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.”
The Cowboys dominated the first meeting in Philadelphia, winning 20-10. That loss still seems to be bothering the Eagles.
