No matter how bad it has gone this season for the Dallas Cowboys, their fans can take solace in knowing that at least the are not the laughing stock of the league a.k.a. the Philadelphia Eagles. The “Iggles” invoked “giggles” in their NFC East opponents this season winning only once within their own division. They ended their terrible 4-12 season with the New York Giants mercifully taking them out like the ending of Old Yeller, in a 42-7 laugher.
It was just last year that this Eagles team announced themselves as the new “Dream Team” and expected to simply roll through the NFC East and eventually the NFL. This same team is now expected to fire their head coach and coaching staff, starting quarterback, and most of their defense. Defensive end Jason Babin was surprisingly released a couple weeks ago. He probably got the better end of that deal.
In the meantime, it appears that Philadelphia will be the doormat for our division for the foreseeable future. And if any Eagles fan attempts to make fun of the Cowboys after the atrocious season they had this year, simply asked them how many Super Bowls they’ve won…and walk away.
