The exhilarating suffering of Cowboys and Eagles fans, together in one convenient location. Today, the suffering of one will be compounded. The suffering of the other will be momentarily alleviated, though tinged with the knowledge that all that awaits them is further disappointment and frustration. Two teams enter, both teams cry.
It appears Andy Reid’s ham-fisted reign of terrible clock management is finally coming to an end in Philadelphia. If the Eagles fall behind in the second half today, FOX is gonna have to cut stadium audio to keep the “Fire Andy!” chants from overwhelming the broadcast. This week, Jon Gruden emerged as a popular speculative future Eagles coach, even though Gruden knows what it’s like to have the fans there turn on him.
Most likely, both Dallas and Philadelphia will be forced into a bidding war for Sean Payton once both Reid and Jason Garrett are shown the door. That means this derpfight is just getting started.
