A group of Philadelphia Eagles fans have started a campaign to fly a banner over Cowboys training camp that reads “We got DeMarco :)”. As if the smiling face at the end isn’t bad enough, here are the top five things that Cowboys’ fans could fly over Eagles camp this summer.
Dez Bryant’s signature TD celebration should serve as a flashback to Week 15 of last season when Bryant abused the Eagles secondary for three TDs. They have DeMarco and no true #1 WR. We have Dez, Williams, Romo and Randle. Hmmm.
…the number of carries that DeMarco Murray took last season, including playoffs. This absurd number will surely take a toll on Murray, who is guaranteed $21 million by the Eagles. I think we’ll stick with Randle and McFadden.
3. We Have Romo
A direct stab at the original banner, this simple banner pours salt in the gaping hole that is the Eagles depth chart at QB. No one will argue that the Eagles running backs are not one of the league’s best units, but their opening day QB is projected to be Sam Bradford. Ouch.
Bradford has played in exactly seven football games the past two seasons. Backing him up will be Mark Sanchez. Somewhere Randy Gregory and Byron Jones are very, very happy.
The Cowboys will see Murray in Philly as early as week 2 this season. It is the earliest the teams have met since 2008. Cowboys’ fans should have confidence that the improved defense will give Murray the reunion he deserves.
The teams will meet again in week 9 when the Cowboys hope to be playing with Greg Hardy and Rolando McClain.
1. 5 > 0
Simple but effective, the Cowboys can quiet the Eagles fans’ optimism by delivering this friendly reminder that the team has won a grand total of zero Super Bowls. DeMarco Murray does not instantly make this team a contender, and Las Vegas agrees – setting the Eagles’ odds to win it all this year at 25/1.
