I think we could all use a little break, and with TO being uncharacteristically quiet leading up to the big showdown in South Philly, Roy Williams has picked up the shit-talking slack. In response to Donovan McNabb's comments that the NFC East Championship goes through last year's champion city, Philly, Williams had some pointed words, essentially saying that no one's afraid to play at the Linc right now.
Williams may forget that the Cowboys seemingly had the Eagles and the division on the ropes last season, only to choke as if someone grabbed them by the neck from behind, wrenching them to the ground in an unnatural fashion because they started too slow.
Reminded about the Eagles' recent dominance over Dallas -- two
straight wins, five of seven and 11 of 14 -- Williams dismissed that, too.
"They are another team that's in our way of reaching our
goals," he said.
One thing that hasn't changed is that a big part of the reason for the Eagles' success against Dallas has been the ability to throw into Williams' defensive backfield at will. He may have a point that it's a new season (brilliant observation, that), but he's not the one on that team to be voicing anything. He's been garbage for years, and win or lose, the DMac and the Eagles will probably pick him apart again this weekend.
