Hours after a gut-wrenching 24-0 defeat to the division rival Cowboys, DeSean Jackson decided to post his feelings on the popular social-networking site Twitter.

In response to the loss Jackson posted: "Got smashed by them cowboys 2daaaaaay sheeeeesh its all good we gonna sting they a$s next week lil buddy,"

Is that really the type of comments you want to say about arguably the hottest team in football?

Not that Dallas needs any extra motivation.

The Cowboys finished their season by defeating the previously unbeaten Saints, in the Superdome no less, and shutting out two division rivals in back-to-back weeks. A feat no other Cowboy team has accomplished.

I guess Jackson needed something to take away the sting of losing to a better team because the Eagles were just out-played in every facet of the game by the Cowboys.

In response to Jackson's comments, Mike Jenkins, the man in charge of grounding the high-flying Eagle, posted this:"I wouldn't argue back and forth on Twitter, I'm not even a Twitter type of guy... Let him talk"

Jenkins is doing the smart thing. Letting his play on the field do the talking.

Now, you could argue that Philadelphia wasn't showing anything, or playing with all of their heart. McNabb confirming the point in his postgame press conference.

I find this extremely hard to believe why a team would play that way. Especially if they're playing for a potential first-round bye and a home game in the divisional round of the NFC Playoffs.

However, I do feel the game will have a completely different feel and temp to it. The Cowboys WILL be ready for it.

Lately, it has seemed Wade has gotten his men ready for the biggest games of the season.

This will be one of them.

Tony Romo has said he expects to see every blitz ever invented thrown at him.

And why not.

The Eagles are the ones with their backs against the wall. They are the team who has yet to beat the Cowboys in two tries.

Dallas will be ready. Expect that and expect that 13-year drought without a playoff victory to end on Saturday.
