COWBOYS TO EAGLES DOUGIE P: WHAT ARE YOU GUARANTEEING NOW!

By Manny Cuellar

Not that the Dallas Cowboys needed extra incentive to bury the Eagles 37-10 last night, but:

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he believed Eagles coach Doug Pederson’s guarantee at least helped and running back Ezekiel Elliott added:

“We don’t give a (hoot) what Doug Pederson says.”

Last Monday morning, after the Eagles had lost the first of a three-game stretch of road games, all against probable playoff teams. Pederson grew frustrated on his weekly radio show and blurted out a guarantee to the listeners of WIP-FM (94.1):

“We’re going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play. And we’re gonna win that football game and when we do we’re in first place in the NFC East.”

This enraged defensive linemen DeMarcus Lawrence and Antwaun Woods. Woods on Wednesday said that, since Pederson wouldn’t “put his hand in the dirt,” he shouldn’t promise anything. Lawrence on Friday was less diplomatic. Lawerence said Pederson should “Shut his [butt] up.”

“I told him to shut up, didn’t I?” Lawrence said after recording his first career sack against the Eagles. “So what you think he’s doing now?”
