Some unflattering comments have been issued about the Cowboys heading into Sunday’s NFC East showdown with Philadelphia.
Quarterback Dak Prescott was asked if he heard what one of the Eagles starting linebackers had to say.
“Who?” Prescott asked.
“You know, coach (Jason) Garrett has a great saying, and I don’t know where he got it from, but winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners,” Prescott said. “We’re focused on ourselves in this locker room about what we need to do to get better in each and every phase of this game to be ready for this week.
“We’re not worried about he say, she say.”
In an interview Wednesday afternoon, Grugier-Hill had this to say about the Cowboys: “Look at Dallas’ history. They always choke. So we’ll go down there and make them choke.”
Prescott may be focused on the Cowboys, but does he at least concede he’s heard the comment?
“I’ve heard it,” he said.
The Cowboys haven’t lost since beating the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on Nov. 11. The defending Super Bowl champions, which has won four of their last five games at AT&T Stadium, must win Sunday afternoon to have a realistic path to the division title.
“When you play a team like this, a game like this that means what it means, what somebody says doesn’t add any motivation,” Prescott said.
Then why say it, especially in a social media age where incendiary comments blow up immediately?
“That’s the reason they talk trash,” Prescott said. “It brings attention.
“If that’s what they want, good for them.”
What was already an entertaining game has gotten a little more fun.
