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.
