What is it about the Eagles and their speedy young wideouts that makes them chirping buffoons?

Is there something in the chemically enhanced beef they use in the cheese steaks?

Last week we had DeSean Jackson's untimely posturing "we gonna sting they a** next week lil buddy…” coming fresh off a 24-0 drubbing at the hands of the Cowboys in Week 17.

Now, we've been given this gem from out of the mouth of Jeremy Maclin .

"I'm still not going say they are better than us. They did a good job of coming out and playing football. But I'll still take my guys over anybody else in the league…They came up with some good things to throw us off-guard. If you look at personnel, I'm not going to say they are better than us."


What exactly would it take for you to admit the Cowboys are the better team Jeremy? 

Do the Cowboys need to beat the Eagles in the preseason too?

I mean seriously, you've been leveled three convincing defeats all during the same season, to the same team and your final conclusion is that your team (Eagles) is better?

Chalk it up to rookie exuberance, but Maclin should know better.

By the way Jeremy, the Cowboys will be glad to hear that you'll take your "guys" over theirs.  Why?  Because it will just be more of the same rookie.
