Ahead of the Eagles’ Sunday night game against the Dallas Cowboys, former Dallas coach Jason Garrett was a part of the NBC crew making predictions for the game. Despite having previously led the Cowboys for more than nine seasons, Garrett not only picked them to win, but actually uttered a phrase by he players and fan base.
“We’ve been talking about it all year long, Eagles the most complete team. I think Dallas has the best defense, look for Philadelphia to run the ball and run the ball at Micah Parsons,” Garrett said during his pick. “I never thought I’d say this in my life — fly Eagles fly. I pick the Eagles.”
“Fly Eagles Fly” is the signature fight song for Philadelphia, and Garrett’s use of the phrase led to fans expressing their anger toward the longtime Cowboys head coach.
In the end, Garrett was right in picking the Eagles, but it still left a bad taste in the mouth of Cowboys fans.
Philadelphia hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Oct. 30 after a bye this week.
