Back When the Eagles-Cowboys Rivalry Really Meant Something to Players

The Eagles/Cowboys rivalry is one of the longest and most bad blood-filled rivalries in all of professional sports (though we can claim the “Bad Blood” singer as our own). When the Eagles acquired DeMarco Murray this offseason, it was a little pick at the rivalry’s wound, since players still don’t often end up playing for both teams (okay, maybe it’s not super uncommon). There’s an alternate universe out there where Troy Aikman came out of retirement to put on midnight green, but nowhere in the multi-verse did Seth Joyner or Barret Brooks ever wear the blue and white.

On Breakfast on Broad this morning, Seth Joyner was asked about what the upcoming Dallas game means to players:

“That is that game that you circle on the schedule … I’ve been retired since 1999, and I still hate the Cowboys. Still … You’ll never see me wear the combination of white, navy blue, and gray.

People don’t know, when I left Arizona, Jerry Jones called me. He was trying to recruit me to come play for the Cowboys. And I’m listening to what he’s saying, and in my mind I’m like, “you’re out of your mind if you think that I would ever put that star on the side of my head. Never.”

Jerry Bill Parcells also reached out to Barrett Brooks:

“He called me and it was like he was talking in Spanish or something. “Will you come down to Dallas?” What are you talking about? No, not gonna happen.”

    1. Seth Joyner at 51 years old, looks like he can step onto the football field, and make more plays than Brandon Graham.

      Barrett Brooks on the other hand at 43 years of age, looks like he’s pregnant with twins.

  1. JILLIAN YOU CAN TAKE ALL THE SELFIES YOU WANT

    I still love you

    You’re probably super self absorbed and reading every comment to see what people say about you. Let me say this. You’re super hot and can do whatever you want. I would eat you. Call me.

    1. I mean, to be fair he said Navy blue and he had a much lighter shade of blue on there. Jillian actually called him out on it and he clarified what he meant.

  2. Mike Missanelli Now I won’t bring it up since I don’t like to brag, but I nailed that Falcons pick OUTRIGHT. I told you that line was telling me to go against the Eagles. Vegas knows what it is doing 92% of the bets were on the Eagles. Let’s go to
    Harry from Mayfair. Whats upbro?

    Harry from Mayfair: Well Mike first of all the line didn’t move even though 92% of the bets were on the Eagles, because half the money was with the birds.

    MM What you talking bout bro you don’t have a clue

    HfM Sure, the 8% of the Falcons bets were large and it is the known as the smart money

    MM you a dope bro, first of all I teach sports law in college, live on the Main Line, drive a BMW and played college baseball.

    HfM I’m telling you Mike Vegas wants half the mon..

    MM Look bro I’m an elitist, and you only live in in Mayfair…won’t hold it against you bro. Want a general knowledge question?

    HfM Maybe you are right I am a human zero…go ahead give me a question, I’m a trivial pursuit expert

    MM Okay where did the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941 to force the US to enter WW2

    HfM Attack? wait I know this …wasn’t it the World Trade Center

    MM What? Martines?

    Martines. I know this I remember from high school history class. It was Pearl Harbor?

    MM Correct good work by you Martines – lets go to Ji’Aire from Camden What up Bro?

    JfC I still sayChip Kelly is a racist….

  3. Ah, Missanelli makes an appearance on BOB….figures. I haven’t seen that many nobodys on TV since the Roast of Justin Beiber.

  4. Can someone let me know who is the one who is always taking pictures of Jillian by herself? Every picture of her on instagram is a selfie, or it’s taken by this mystery photog. Who could this be? Her secret girlfriend?

  5. What’s with her & the stupid selfies? Don’t see any respectable person posting that shit on social media . Must be begging for the “you are so hot” comments from losers on there

  6. Is he some guy who does trivia contests and Quizzo’s at bars. I thought I saw him pitching reverse mortgages on TV.

  7. I’ll bet she can sniff a hockey sweater from a mile away. I think that nose got up close and personal with Scott H’s ass.

  8. Because of free agency, its the fans who understand these rivalries more then the players. Do you think Bradford hates the Cowboys? Do you think Ryan Matthews hates the Cowboys? It’s takes years to hate a division rival as the Eagles from Joyner’s era played on the same team every year and that is what drove that rivalry. Not is all hype by the media and fans.
