Eagles DT Bennie Logan and CB Eric Rowe: Cowboys cry too much
Trash talk is a virtual certainty in the days leading up to games between NFC East teams, but things have been toned down a bit with pretty much everyone in the division struggling through the first half of the season.
Eagles defenders Bennie Logan and Eric Rowe don’t mind rekindling some of those flames.
During an interview with 94WIP earlier this week, Logan said the Cowboys need to stop crying after the whistle blows.
“They just whine and complain about everything,” the defensive tackle said, via Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com. “Shut up and play ball. I’m gonna hit you hard every snap. Stop complaining about this and this. That just bugs me. You’re a man. It’s football. Shut up and get hit and take it like a man.”
Rowe, a rookie cornerback, couldn’t agree more. He drew his own conclusions based on Philly’s first meeting with the Cowboys this season, which Dallas won 20-10.
“From the last game, I saw at least on the offensive side, a lot of them cried a lot,” Rowe told the same radio station. “They also want a lot of penalties. I saw [tight end] Jason Witten, every time he was covered he looked for a flag and complained and pointed at the ref. Couple of the receivers were looking at the refs, looking for PI [pass interference]. Cry babies? Well, yeah, if you want to put it like that.”
The Eagles had trouble scoring against the Cowboys the first time around, but their offense has looked better overall since that game. They should have the advantage with Dallas starting Matt Cassel, but divisional games are tough to predict. In any event, it’s good to see all the not-so-friendly passion didn’t leave the NFC East when this guy went to Buffalo.
