WHEN the Eagles rallied to beat the Lions 2 weeks ago, Birds fans erupted with joy. These are the same fans who are ridiculed in the national media. They threw snowballs at Santa Claus, blah, blah, blah.
Say what you will, Eagles fans remain true, win or lose.
Such is not the case with Cowboys fans.
Yesterday, Dallas scored the final 10 points of the fourth quarter - including a 10-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to DeMarco Murray on fourth down with 1:08 left - to defeat the Redskins, 24-23.
A win is a good thing, right?
Not to some who commented on the Dallas Morning News' website.
Someone named "Bruce Levy" wrote:
"Better than losing. But last minute heroics and a 1 point win against a team with 3 wins and a 6 [now 7] game losing streak is not exactly anything to get too excited about."
A fan with the seasonal handle "Jack Frost" was cold-hearted:
"That last TD pass to Murray was fine, but it was a broken play and nothing more than you would see on a neighborhood playground pickup game."
A dude named "Rich" didn't let his lack of grammatical skills get in the way of his analysis:
"Wish we could bench [Brandon] Carr but the defense is to beat up, It would be nice to go to the playoffs but I wouldn't hold my breath that's for sure, one and done most likely because of our D."
Then there was "Robert," who was short, but not-so-sweet:
"I cannot emphasize enough how much I am rooting for the Eagles next week."
The last word goes to "petenelson277:"
"This is not a good football team. And if Dallas lucks out and stumbles into the playoff, the General manger will feel he has created a football powerhouse. Then all games at Cowboy stadium will have to be played with the roof open, to accommodate Jerry's head."
Ouch! Imagine what they would have written if the Cowboys had lost.
