The internet is roasting the NFC East and it's amazing

The internet is roasting the NFC East and it's amazing

Does a single soul in the NFC East want to win the division? 

Anyone? Anyone? 

After the Eagles (5-7) lost in stunningly horrific fashion to the Dolphins last week, the Cowboys (6-7) hit ‘em with an old “hold my beer” and got trumped by the Bears, 31-24. It seems like both teams are now in a race to avoid first place.

And the internet is collectively losing its mind. 

No one has room to talk, but that doesn’t mean Eagles players won’t talk trash. Lane Johnson took to Twitter, despite the fact that his team most recently lost to the worst team in the league. He took a sly hit at his division rivals with a simple, but clear tweet timed at the same moment the Cowboys began aggressively losing.

Not a great look in my opinion, considering the sorry state of the Birds, but everyone else is pretty much off their rocker too with the state of the NFC East. 

Even former Cowboys. 

I mean, really, does anyone want to win this division? 

Has it really gotten to this? 

Well, there it is, the sad state of the dumpster fire that is the NFC East.

Is this something Eagles and Cowboys fans can finally commiserate over? (Probably not, Dallas still sucks.)

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

The fight between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns will live in infamy in Philadelphia for years to come.

There was so much happening at once, yet it was the perfect embodiment of Philadelphia sports and the mentality that the true athletes here reflect.

Even the celebrities are weighing in.

Rob McElhenney, who plays Mac on the FX series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” made sure to let the city know he approved.

Here’s what he had to say on social media about Embiid going after Towns’ eye.



How fitting that social media dug up just the perfect quote from the show about this glorious city. There’s quite literally an “It’s Always Sunny” quote for everything.

It’s always um ... spirited ... in Philadelphia.
