Drew Pearson has tremendous response for booing Eagles fans at NFL draft

As much as you might hate Drew Pearson, one of the Cowboys' all-time great receivers, you've got to give him credit for this.

Roger Goodell tried to have some fun with the Philly fans, who booed him mightily (so mightily it was expressed over closed captioning) when he took the stage at the start of Rounds 1 and 2 of the NFL draft.

But he paled in comparison to Pearson, who was ready for the awesomely rude reception. 

"All right. How about dem Cowboys!" he said. "I want to thank the Eagle fans for allowing me to have a career in the NFL. Thank you.

"I am honored as an undrafted free agent to be selected to make the Cowboys' second-round draft pick ... 

Raises his voice ...

"... and on behalf of the five-time World Champion Dallas Cowboys, Hall of Fame owner Jerry Jones, Gene Jones and the Jones family, coach Jason Garrett, all the Cowboys players that played before me, that played with me and played after me. 
Raises his voice ...

"With the 60th pick in the second round, the Dallas Cowboys select defensive back from Colorado Chidobe Awuzie." 

Fittingly, it's a corner the Eagles could have used.

A three-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro, Pearson spent all 11 of his NFL seasons with the Cowboys (1973-83) and won one Super Bowl. He had 72 receptions for 950 yards and five touchdowns in 20 career games β€” 15 of them wins β€” against the Eagles. He actually compiled more yardage and touchdown receptions against each of the other NFC East teams (Redskins, Giants and Cardinals) than the Eagles.

Here's the viewpoint from inside the boos:

Who wouldn't want Embiid's face depicted in their hair? After all, the playoff push is heating up, so you've got to look ready.

Over 100 barbers from the Delaware Valley were expected on hand for the evening and pregame networking event, which was all presented by Maestro's Classic.

Don't be surprised if the Embiid cut catches on throughout the city.

No doubt, you'll be the coolest kid at school (or work).

Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers


Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers

Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.

The newest member of the Eagles' cornerback crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.

If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:

When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.

It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.

His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]
