Watching the Philadelphia Eagles celebrate their second Super Bowl appearance in the last six years is enough for any Dallas Cowboys fan to launch all of their electronics through their HD flat screen.

Even more fun, since the 2004 season, the Eagles have made three Super Bowls to the zero for the Dallas Cowboys.

There is good news; the Cowboys remain tied with the Washington Football Team for Super Bowl appearances this century.

And the Cowboys rank first as the most valuable franchise in the NFL, according to Forbes; the Philadelphia Eagles rank 10th.

Just waiting for details on the parade route.

There are many frustrating details, and realities, for the Cowboys, not the least of which is that their hated rivals from Philadelphia are doing something with supposedly the inferior quarterback.


Jalen Hurts deserves all of the credit and love for leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl, and he should not be here ahead of Dak Prescott.

Because Dak Prescott is a better quarterback than Jalen Hurts *.

(* A fool can see that Hurts had a better year than Prescott in 2022; this is not about one year.)

If the Philadelphia Eagles can win the NFC with Jalen Hurts as their quarterback, there is no reason why the Dallas Cowboys can’t do the same with Dak Prescott as theirs.
