Dallas Cowboys fans simply couldn’t have the hated Philadelphia Eagles win their second Super Bowl in five seasons.
The offseason would’ve been insufferable, largely due to Eagles fans, who showed their class by booing Dak Prescott as he accepted the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award before kickoff, and Nick Sirianni being as corny and pompous as humanly possible both on the sidelines and behind the microphone.
When the dust settled from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ, the Kansas City Chiefs humbled Sirianni’s Eagles to the tune of a 38-35 victory. Harrison Butker made the game-winning field goal with seconds left in regulation, and Patrick Mahomes took home MVP honors after he threw three touchdowns on a bum ankle.
All NFC East fans — and Philly haters — took to social media in droves to dance on the Eagles’ grave. It was truly a sight to behold seeing everyone come together to celebrate a division rival’s demise on football’s biggest stage.
The best tweet of the night, however, came from none other than Jayron Kearse, who bumped perhaps the most obnoxious video of the 2022 NFL season.
Cowboys defender Jayron Kearse trolled the Eagles and Nick Sirianni after they choked away Super Bowl LVII.
We’d like to rescind a previous statement.
That is without question the most obnoxious video from the 2022 NFL season. Of course Sirianni knew where the camera was, and of course he executed the most annoying behavior you’ll see from a head coach no matter the sport.
Was Sunday’s loss karma for Sirianni’s season-long antics? It’s tough to say. But the defeat might be justice after he got unnecessarily cocky while the booth was reviewing DeVonta Smith’s 35-yard catch that would’ve put the Eagles in the red zone with a chance to go into halftime up two touchdowns.
During the review, Sirianni signaled for a first down only to get held in check by Jalen Hurts. Rare instance when a QB displays more leadership than his head coach. The call was fittingly reversed and the Eagles settled for a field goal after they picked up two more first downs.
It was the Super Bowl and Sirianni still couldn’t help himself.
The Eagles took a 10-point lead into halftime and never led again. Kansas City scored a touchdown on their first three possessions of the second half to jump out to a 35-27 lead before Butker’s game-winning field goal.
Kearse spoke for every Cowboys fan by trolling Sirianni. The head coach had myriad obnoxious moments throughout the season, but the head nod in the Divisional Round against the Giants takes the cake, and Kearse seemingly had this tweet ready to go in the drafts the second the Eagles lost on Sunday.
Welcome to legend status, Jayron Kearse.
