Hades has officially frozen over and somewhere pot-belly pigs are flying. Things have gone haywire in Jerry’s World as Dallas Cowboys royalty seems to be dealing with something foreign to lovers of the so-called ‘America’s Team’ … reality. While MVP candidate Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles are moving on from a one-sided victory over one of the other teams that they most despise, the New York Giants, Michael Irvin continues the rants he started about four months ago.

‘The Playmaker’ hasn’t called the Eagles a dynasty of late, but he has, to his credit, acknowledged that Philly is the real deal. Then, there’s long-time Cowboys homer Skip Bayless. He’s joined the Jalen Hurts for MVP train.

Don’t take our word for it! Here’s his take, straight from the source.

Sorry Cowboys fans… That has to sting, doesn’t it? Then again, this could be all about Skip’s undying loyalty to the Oklahoma Sooners. Either way, you have to admit that this is funny coming from one of the more notable Cowboys fans.

The Jalen Hurts/Dak Prescott duel approaches.

So, here we are. The Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are on a collision course with one another as their clash on Christmas Eve approaches. Philly has other business to take care of first however. Week 15’s game requires that they travel to the Windy City for a tilt versus the Chicago Bears. Then, we get our Jalen Hurts/Dak Prescott QB duel.

The Eagles are the winners of four straight and the owners of a 12-1 record. The Cowboys currently stand at 10-3, but Dallas isn’t just dealing with reality these days (and what some may see as betrayal from some of their biggest homers). They may also be dealing with karma.

Almost seven weeks ago, the Philadelphia Eagles struggled with an inferior Houston Texans team in primetime before finally putting them away. Cowboys Nation had a field day with that one, going so far as to call the Birds frauds.

A little over a month later, their team needed a 98-yard last-minute drive to vanquish the Texans themselves. Wait! Would that make the Cowboys even bigger frauds? Stay tuned!

As the football universe awaits the showdown between two teams that most think have the best chance of representing the NFC in the next Super Bowl, Philly’s thoughts rest on the Bears, as they should. Once that one wraps however and the spotlight shifts to one of pro football’s fiercest rivalries, you can best believe the mudslinging will ensue.

Hmmm. Does anyone want to take a guess on who Skip Bayless and Michael Irvin really believe the best team is in that showdown? Sure, we know what they’ll say, but as is often the case with both of those guys the jury is still out on whether or not they actually believe some of the mess they conjure up. We’ll have to wait and see what transpires in the coming days.
