If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you won’t believe how the Cowboys fans are reacting after two straight losses. Then again, they’re Cowboys fans, so maybe you will.
If you’re a casual NFL fan, you’re probably starting to learn something that Philadelphia Eagles fans have known for quite some time. Dallas Cowboys fans are among the most delusional in all of the professional sports. Year after year, they just seem to be among the most football-illiterate fans in the entire NFL.
They rarely see things for what they are. They make excuses where excuses can’t be made, and when it comes to what’s been erroneously referred to as ‘America’s Team’, they see the guys with the stars on their helmet through a clouded lens.
They’re almost like Beyonce’s ‘BeyHive’. They’re a collection of people you can’t reason with or tell the truth to.
Just take the last two weeks. The Cowboys have dropped two straight to the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers, their two toughest games of the season. Dak Prescott looks more like Kirk Cousins than a potential MVP, but here’s what’s crazy. In spite of that, Cowboys fans can’t temper their expectations.
A trip around social media will teach you that Cowboys fans still think their team is a favorite to win the Super Bowl, these two losses mean nothing, and Dak Prescott is better than Carson Wentz. Just listen to any diatribe by Skip Bayless or look at anything with a Cowboys hashtag on Twitter, and you’ll learn something quickly.
This is a fanbase that’s either clouded in their judgment or delusional or both. Most NFL fans will say it’s both. One thing’s pretty clear Stephen A Smith is happy. Take a look:
Now, that was funny. If you’re anywhere around New York, and you see Stephen A Smith, give him a high five, and tell him that it’s from the ITI staff.
Whether you listen to him or not, and whether you like him or not, you have to admit something. Stephen A. gets it when it comes to Dallas. Next week, the Cowboys take a trip to meet the New York Jets. They’ll get a win there, and the hype train will continue. Can you imagine how annoying their fans will be after that one?
