Michael Irvin is one of the most hated among Eagles fans. He ended his career on one of the ugliest plays in Philadelphia sports history, but the Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame wide receiver can’t cover up what he’s seeing in Philadelphia.
Irvin is a big fan of this Eagles team and has given his warning to Jerry Jones and the Cowboys. The Eagles aren’t just a one-and-done team. He believed they are going to be great for years to come.
“I just got to tell you the truth. That youth and that fun. It may not be the start of a great year, but the start of a great dynasty,” Irvin said Tuesday afternoon on SportsRadio 94 WIP. “All you need is a hook. You get those guys to start thinking through that locker room that other teams let loose, we’re going to win championship after championship. That’s a dangerous thing for anybody that’s not in an Eagle uniform.”
The Eagles have the NFC’s and NFL’s best record at 8-1 and their second-year quarterback Carson Wentz is the MVP candidate.
Philadelphia is second in the NFL in points per game and possess the NFL’s No. 1 rush defense.
The Dallas Cowboys are three games behind them in the NFC East at 5-4. Irvin isn’t a fan of the way Dallas played without Ezekiel Elliott, who is serving a six-game suspension.
He’s not even the start of the Cowboys issues.
“You see the kind of trouble they’re in without Tyron Smith,” Irvin said. “We can’t even get a full assessment of how much trouble they’re in without Ezekiel Elliott because of the trouble they’re in with Smith. You got to fix that issue before you get the other one.
“You can’t block like what you saw the other day. You have no chance of winning football games.”
Irvin said he spoke with his head instead of his heart when it came to the Eagles and Cowboys.
