Philadelphia is Trolling the Cowboys Incredibly Hard Right Now

It started on Sunday in the closing minutes of the Eagles' 54-11 shellacking of the Chicago Bears when Philly fans filled Lincoln Financial Field with chants of "We want Dallas!" The taunts have only increased in scope and volume as Sunday's season-deciding Cowboys-Eagles grudge match has neared.

Call it trolling. Call it a reasonable assessment of probabilities, given Dallas' defensive woes, Philly's insanely productive offense, and Tony Romo's probable absence. In any case, Eagles fans are really, really confident they're going to win.

The jeers have taken various forms. Above, in the most expensive example, a Philadelphia radio station tells Jerry Jones to start booking tee times.
