Jason Kelce Rips The Cowboys & Their “Fair-Weather” Fans; Implies They’re All Bandwagon
Just ahead of their week 10 matchup next Sunday, Jason Kelce is adding more fuel to the fire in the rivalry between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.
After dropping to 3-5, the Eagles have an opportunity to possibly shut the door on the Cowboys season by pitting them 3 games under .500.
The Eagles center appeared on Philadelphia radio station 94WIP on Wednesday and blasted the franchise as well as the fan base.
“I would say mostly I just don’t think a lot of players, in particular, me, just don’t really like the franchise, the organization, what it stands for – what it’s always stood for,” Kelce said. “This goes back to the lockout when they were getting replacement players, how outspoken the Dallas Cowboys franchise was in ending that. I’ve just never really appreciated what the organization and what its fans really stood for. A lot of fair-weather people from across the country that just kind of fell in love because they’re winners instead of having any type of emotional connection to the team whatsoever.
“There’s a ton of players they got that I got a lot of respect for, Sean Lee, Travis Frederick, unfortunately, is going through some serious health concerns, but he’s a tremendous player. I’ve got some respect for some of their guys, it’s most of the organization that you don’t like.”
The Eagles will host the Cowboys on Sunday in the first of two meetings this season.
