Eagles’ Jason Kelce blasts Cowboys organization, ‘fair weather’ fans
One prominent Philadelphia Eagle is wasting no time stirring up the team’s rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys ahead of their first meeting of the season.
Philadelphia center Jason Kelce did not mince words about the Cowboys, stating that he didn’t like the organization or the fans very much at all.
“There’s certainly a rivalry there, we play them twice a year,” Kelce told the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday, via Angelo Cataldi of the station’s official website. “I would say mostly I just don’t think a lot of players, in particular me, just don’t really like the franchise, the organization, what is stands for—what it’s always stood for. This goes back to the lockout when they were getting replacement players, how outspoken the Dallas Cowboys franchise was in ending that. I’ve just never really appreciated what the organization—and what its fans really stood for. A lot of fair weather people from across the country that just kind of fell in love because they’re winners instead of having any type of emotional connection to the team whatsoever.”
Kelce, who is not shy about saying what he thinks, will probably find a lot of agreement from some people about the state of the Cowboys. And there’s nothing wrong with fanning the flames of a rivalry ahead of Sunday’s kickoff.
