Now they have ZERO to play for and they are without Mccoy, Vick, Jackson, and Babin and all the players know the coach is gone at the end of the year too. You think they are going to play hard for him?
Those 21 points by the defense and special teams was a fluke how many times have you seen that from the Cowboys this season? We beat a Philly team by 15 points that played most of the game with a rookie QB who had never taken a regular season snap and being handed 21 points. Even after the Cowboys got the lead they lost it on a 44 yard TD pass from Foles to Maclin. After Philly took a 14-10 lead Foles drove the Eagles down the field again which led to a FG and a 17-10 lead.
Romo who you claim sucks hit Dez on a 30 yard TD pass which tied the game. It was the punt return for the TD, the pick six and Hatchers fumble return for a score that won the game for the Cowboys. The Cowboys were in a fight for their life until the defensive and specials teams TD's saved them. The Cowboys had ZERO to play for in 2010 after going 1-7 and being totally pulverized by the Packers 45-7.
That team that was being led by a near 40 year old backup QB ended up beating a Payton Manning led Colts team on the road in Indy a few weeks later. The Eagles players respect Reid and I'm sure they feel sorry for him with the tough year he's had to face with the death of his son. I don't see them laying down and quitting on him.
