Philadelphia Newspaper Ridicules Cowboys Over Playoff Loss To Packers
Philadelphia's pro sports teams haven't been giving their fans much to cheer for lately, particularly on the postseason front. So naturally, the city has taken to rooting for the teams that can beat their greatest rivals.
After the Dallas Cowboys were beat at home in devastating fashion by the Green Bay Packers, the Eagles fans of Philly just couldn't help themselves, and the Philadelphia Daily News delivered the ultimate snicker on the back page of their Monday morning edition.
If you can't beat 'em, troll 'em, amiright?!
Now after the wild card round, the Broncos twitter account trolled the AFC West rival Raiders for their loss to the Texans, and we acknowledge that their saltiness was unbecoming. But this situation is different for a couple of reasons.
First and foremost: the Cowboys were healthy and their best players were in the game. In fact they had two starting quarterbacks that they could use, where the Raiders had none. Secondly, this taunt is coming from a Philadelphia newspaper, not the team itself.
Of course that doesn't mean that it's not still a little embarrassing. The Eagles lost both of their games against the Cowboys this past season, and it appears that Dallas may have bested them in the "QBs taken in the 2016 NFL Draft" department as well.
