Philadelphia Eagles left tackle and legend Jason Peters has no problem trolling the most annoying fan base in all of sports, that of the Dallas Cowboys.
You absolutely just have to love Jason Peters. How could you not? He’s a shoo-in to make the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. One day, he’s probably headed to Canton, Ohio to join the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and 2019’s regular season may serve as a bit of a victory tour for him.
We’re probably talking about the final 16 regular season games in the history of what’s been an amazing career.
Leave it to the fans of the Dallas Cowboys to rain on what we hope turns out to be another victory parade. They just never seem to go away. Recently, in a piece Chris McPherson penned on PhiladelphiaEagles.com, he detailed a conversation he had with Peters about his constant interaction with many of those same Cowboys fans.
Keep in mind Peters lives near his hometown of Queen City, Texas, and he tends to bump into a few from time to time. Whenever they bring up the rivalry, Peters doesn’t shy away from the topic. “I just tell them ‘You want to see the ring?'” Peters told McPherson.
Cowboys fans are quick to bring up history and how many Super Bowls they have. Many of them don’t remember anything about them. Sure the championship count swings in the favor of Dallas. They hold five, compared to Philly’s four (keep in mind Philly notched three NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl era). Still, when it comes to arrogance or irritation, one fan base stands head and shoulders above the rest.
You all know who that title belongs to. On Tuesday, the debate found its’ way all the way to the debate table of Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe. Here’s some audio. Fast forward to about one hour and 23 minutes to hear the discussion.
When you get ready to pack it in for the night and you pray or talk to your wife or meditate or whatever it is that you do to wind down, just take a moment and give thanks. Be thankful for good football in Philly. Be thankful for an exciting upcoming Eagles season. Be thankful for the fact that you’re not a Dallas Cowboys fan.
What on Earth could possibly be worse than that?
