Eagles Linebacker Says The Cowboys "Always Choke"

December 05, 2018 - 4:41 pm

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Eagles are putting up some bulletin board material ahead of their rematch with the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington this Sunday. 

Philadelphia linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill said after practice Wednesday that the Cowboys can't win the big game.

"Look at Dallas' history. They always choke. So we'll go down there and make them choke," Grugier-Hill said. 

Prior to the Cowboys 27-20 win in Philadelphia in week 10, Eagles' center Jason Kelce talked some trash about the Cowboys and their fans. 

"There's certainly a rivalry there, we play them twice a year," Kelce said. "I would say mostly I just don't think a lot of players, in particular me, just don't really like the franchise, the organization, what is stands for—what it's always stood for. This goes back to the lockout when they were getting replacement players, how outspoken the Dallas Cowboys franchise was in ending that. I've just never really appreciated what the organization—and what its fans really stood for. A lot of fair weather people from across the country that just kind of fell in love because they're winners instead of having any type of emotional connection to the team whatsoever."

At 7-5, the Cowboys control their own destiny the rest of the way, but the Eagles and Washington Redskis sit just a game back in the NFC East standings at 6-6.
