Dallas Cowboy’s Fans Just Cannot Accept the Eagles Ascension.
Last Sunday evening in South Philadelphia, the Cowboys disappointed their loyal following once again in the game’s final moments. By Monday morning, some in the Cowboys fanbase knew where they would lay the blame for this loss.
In case you haven’t heard, some Dallas Cowboys fans have spent the last week claiming that the National Football League as well as NFL Referees tilted last week’s 28–23 Eagles victory over the Dallas Cowboys just enough for the Philadelphia to secure the victory.
And this accusation has nothing to do with the Eagles eleven-man pile-driving, bulldozing Brotherly Shove.
This objection from the Cowboy’s fanbase originated in the fourth quarter while the Eagles were up 28–17 and Dallas was on offense. Before a play from the Eagle’s 5-yard line, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott was seen alerting the officials that offensive lineman Chuma Edoga was an eligible receiver on the following play.
Despite the fact that the Cowboys last offensive drive included two costly Eagles penalties (one pass interference and one roughing the passer call) the Dallas faithful decided that the outcome of the game was already decided.
Of course they did.
It couldn’t be that the Eagles defense stepped up at just the right moment.
Or that the Eagles are just better, being the most talented and best team in the NFC.
Or that the Eagles were actually the more penalized team on Sunday, accumulating 10 penalties for 98 yards by the game’s end.
Sure, Cowboy’s fans have plenty of reasons to be frustrated. After their last Super Bowl win in 1996, Dallas has won just five playoff games in 27 years. Dallas playoff loses have include a botched Tony Romo hold on a field goal, the Arizona Cardinals smothering Troy Aikman’s offense in 1998, and that desperate spike by Dak Prescott last year after time had expired.
I’ll let those Dallas fans down gently.
Here is the part that they are missing. The Philadelphia Eagles are just a better team. They have a better roster, better coaching, better talent.
Even before the game starts, the best team on the field that night will be the Philadelphia Eagles.
