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.
It’s official, Carson Wentz is the Eagles' No. 1 fan, and he’s got the outfit to prove it.
On Sunday, Wentz returned to action for the first time in nine months and led the Eagles to victory. He celebrated his win in true Eagles style, rocking a kelly green blazer to his postgame press conference.
As if this outfit wasn’t sharp enough, take a closer look at his blazer... Notice anything? JawnOfTheDead on Reddit discovered that the pin on his jacket is a #1 Eagles Fan pin.
For less than five dollars, you can buy a pin of your own on eBay.
Not sure if Carson won a football game or The Masters, but either way, we’re loving this look.
Jason Kelce knows the touch of both Nick Foles and Carson Wentz better than almost anyone.
The Eagles' center snaps the ball between his legs to the waiting hands of the quarterbacks everytime the Birds take the field every Sunday. The center/quarterback relationship is a unique one, and as Kelce tells it, they're not all created equal.
Kelce was a guest Monday on the Dan Patrick Show when the host asked him a curious but excellent question.
"Can you tell the difference between Carson Wentz's hands and Nick Foles' hands under your butt?" Patrick asks.
"Yes, absolutely," Kelce said.
But then he elaborates.
"I can be blindfolded and I'm pretty sure I can tell who is back there."
Go on …
"Foles has a very large hand and he applies a lot of pressure. So I feel that. It's a very intimidating feeling. Carson has much softer hands but they're very affirmative. He's a very A-type personality, controlling-type guy which is an awesome attribute to have in a quarterback. His are almost back there where you can barely feel them but when you snap the ball they're always in the right spot."
It's not the first time the size of Foles' hands has been hinted at.
Kelce goes on to tell a story about a hot day where Foles was taking under-center snaps all day long. Then things got weird because Kelce always seems to enjoy keeping it weird.
