Cowboys at Eagles: Expert reveals Philly’s biggest weakness
As the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for their first matchup of the season, an expert reveals Philly’s biggest weakness.
With the NFC East hanging in the balance, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles reignite a longtime rivalry for this first time this season Sunday night.
To prepare for this matchup, The Landry Hat snuck behind enemy lines to gather some insider intel about the Birds heading into this pivotal divisional battle. Here are our five questions with Geoffrey Knox, site expert for Inside The Iggles, FanSided’s fan site for the Philadelphia Eagles.
What are your thoughts on the recent Golden Tate trade?
GK: I love the Golden Tate trade. Much of the issue, in my opinion, that has contributed to this team’s tendency to stall on offense is the fact that there was no go-to receiver early (Alshon Jeffery).
Then, once he returned, there was no compliment to him on the other side because Mike Wallace was already gone when he got back.
Tate gives Wentz something that guys like Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews have, at times, struggled to provide, a legitimate outside receiver on the other side of Jeffery. This could be fun. There’s just one drawback. Signing him to an extension could prove to be difficult.
