Former Eagles K David Akers roasts Cowboys at NFL draft

Former Eagles K David Akers roasts Cowboys at NFL draft

Once again, the Eagles have one-upped the Cowboys. This time it happened at the NFL draft – twice – and with respect to Howie Roseman, David Akers stole the show.

First, Roseman traded ahead three spots to leap the Cowboys in the draft order, selecting tight end Dallas Goedert the same day their Hall of Fame tight end, Jason Witten, reportedly decided to retire. That was just cruel.

Then Akers took the stage to announce the Eagles’ second-round pick, and the greatest kicker in franchise history dropped a nuclear bomb on AT&T Stadium, aka Jerryworld, home to the Cowboys and site of this year’s draft.

“Hey, Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren’t born.”

The Cowboys haven’t been to a Super Bowl since the 1995 season. Truth hurts.

Watch video of Akers’ entire rant here.

Last year, legendary Cowboys wide receiver and noted supervillain, Drew Pearson, trolled Eagles fans at the NFL draft in Philadelphia. The Eagles, of course, had the last laugh, going on to win the Super Bowl at the end of the season.

How much have the tides turned in the last year? Now kickers are straight dumping on the Cowboys in front of the entire world.

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.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
