Sometimes he can frustrate you, but recently, Colin Cowherd nailed something. The Philadelphia Eagles are a better-run franchise than the Dallas Cowboys are.
Love him or not, Colin Cowherd is one of those guys that just seems to always be interesting. Sure, he can be frustrating. He may never be friends with several NFL athletes and quite a few head coaches, but recently, he nailed something. Tuesday, on his highly popular radio and television show, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, he made a statement that most of us have known to be true for a while. The Philadelphia Eagles are a better-run franchise than the Dallas Cowboys are.
Why? Here are four reasons. they’re better at quarterback, general manager, and head coach. Plus, they have a better owner.
This only comes as a shock if you call yourself a Cowboys fan. You kind of have to let Mr. Cowherd do the honors himself. Take a look at this one.
Is there really anything there that you can disagree with? Again, this is only a shock to the system if you’re a Cowboys fan.
Is Jerry Jones a great businessman? Absolutely he is. He just never learned how to get out of the way, let the football guys handle the football stuff and let the coaches do the coaching. Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie has always been smart enough to hire people who can do the job and then get out of the way so that they can do it.
Then, there’s the quarterback position, the head coaches, and the general managers. Anyone impartial would give the edge to Howie Roseman over that Cowboys GM. What’s his name? Oh, wait. Jerry Jones is the general manager too.
Do you see what everyone means about getting out of the way? Sometimes, it feels like if Jones could get out there and run a few routes, he’d do that too.
Let’s go to the coaches. Are you really going to say Jason Garrett is better than Doug Pederson? Exactly. As far as the quarterback argument goes, yes, there’s a ton of talent there with Dak Prescott, but he gets a lot of endorsements because the Cowboys were better in 2016 than the Eagles were, so his team was more successful.
Sure, Prescott doesn’t get hurt, but when it comes down to it, athletically, both he and Carson Wentz are equal. That brings us to the mechanics and those subtle nuances of what makes a guy an NFL quarterback, That’s where Wentz distances himself, even if right now, it’s slightly. Wentz also has a higher ceiling.
Add all of that up, and Cowherd’s right, this Eagles team could dominate the Cowboys for a while.
