Stephen A Smith loves that Philadelphia Eagles move, clowns Cowboys
Recently, on ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith talked a little Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys football. You’re going to want to check this one out.
Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles are going to love this. Recently, on an episode of ESPN’s highly-popular debate-based First Take, the subject of ‘The Birds’ and Dallas Cowboys came up.
Yes, Stephen A Smith was in rare form for this one.
We don’t have to introduce you to ‘Stephen A’ do we?
Love him or hate him, there’s only one Stephen A. Smith. It’s kind of hard not to listen to him sometimes. That isn’t just because of the demonstrative way he expresses himself (no one will ever describe him as being passive-aggressive). It’s also because of the fact that, in his own unique way, he is very entertaining.
Recently, he and Will Cain discussed both the Cowboys’ trade for Amari Cooper and the Eagles’ trade to acquire Golden Tate. While Cain believes the Cowboys made the right move, Stephen A Smith firmly entrenched himself on the other side.
Hey, you know what First take is about. You know how ‘Stephen A’ is. This one is worth checking out (you have to watch this one through to the end).

That was fun. Now, let’s add some clarity.
When October 30th arrived and things were quiet for the majority of that day, some of the theory was that Dallas giving up a first-round selection for Cooper had upset the trade market a little.
Teams, supposedly, looked at what Dallas was willing to give up and increased some of their own asking prices for some of their own players. We may never know if that theory was an accurate one or not, but we do know this.
Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has proven again, with both his words and actions, that the Eagles have their ‘foot on the gas’. Forget what you’ve seen to this point. Forget that 4-4 record.
It’s Super Bowl or bust again in Philadelphia. The Cowboys, on the other hand, are trying to determine in Cooper is a long-term answer and if Dak Prescott will be the quarterback of this team going forward.
