Eagles tweak Jerry's giant TV

Several teams incorporate into their web sites animated segments regarding an upcoming opponent.

Few are actually funny, despite the best intentions of those who craft them.

This week, however, the Eagles’ treatment of the oversized drive-in theater screens at Cowboys Stadium has prompted us to declare, “That’s gold!”

Here it is.

    It was funny. Who is #46 on the Eagles?

  2. Bolo Savage says: Dec 31, 2009 10:38 AM

    That is priceless!!

  3. mad555 says: Dec 31, 2009 10:39 AM

    Actually the other weeks are way funnier than this weeks cartoon.

  4. godofwine says: Dec 31, 2009 10:40 AM

    I should have guessed. #46 was the long snapper Jon Dorenbos. It is probably the only pub he is ever going to get.

  5. Opie says: Dec 31, 2009 10:40 AM

    Somewhere Roy Williams saw this and is upset…….because “Jumbotronicus” is the nickname he wanted…….sniff, sniff….

    Not bad…but this one is much better and always cracks me up…

    JUMBOTRONOCUS! Now just win the damn game!

  10. Diomedes says: Dec 31, 2009 10:45 AM

    Dorenbos is a pretty accomplished magician.
    Rocca is from Australia, hence the faux accent.

  11. Diomedes says: Dec 31, 2009 10:45 AM

    Or maybe he’s from New Zealand. I don’t care to recall.

    Florio is still disappointed that no punts have hit the Cowboys monster tv this year. Keep your fingers crossed Florio – it could be the new year’s Festivus miracle.

  13. ShootahCowboy says: Dec 31, 2009 11:00 AM

    As a Cowboys fan, I have to admit it was funny.
    Still, just proves how jealous the Eagles and their fans are of the Cowboys….

  14. dynast says: Dec 31, 2009 11:05 AM

    #46 is the long snapper John Dorenbos who is also a magician during his non-football time. That is why they showed him doing magic tricks in that clip.

  15. danielcp0303 says: Dec 31, 2009 11:22 AM

    They wish they had that big screen, and 5 super bowls, and the most super bowl appearances…

  16. emdub52 says: Dec 31, 2009 11:25 AM

    That was hella funny. It would have been amazing if “Jumbotronicus” dropped an F bomb after his “what the…” Dare to dream.

    I just don’t understand the purpose of that huge screen. If I’m sitting in the nose bleed section sure I can see what’s going on better but why bother with the hassle when you could easily watch from home without dealing with traffic and paying for tickets and parking.

  19. sonvar says: Dec 31, 2009 11:52 AM

    @danielcp0303
    And that has what to do with the animation? They’ve done one of these flash animations before every game and all them meant to be silly to some degree. It gets tiring how Cowboy fans everytime something isn’t going their way revert back to talking about the super bowl wins. Yes they have won those but for most people it’s a matter of what have you done for me lately and frankly only the Giants can lay claim to being one of the better teams in the NFC East. Eagles have made more playoffs and a Super Bowl appearance this decade but Cowboys/Redskins can’t lay claim to anything this decade at all.

  20. toe-to-toe bird law says: Dec 31, 2009 11:55 AM

    If this Sunday’s game ends up anything like last year’s 44-6 result, I’m pretty sure that most fans in attendance would prefer to watch the monkey on the bike.

  21. .VoxVeritas says: Dec 31, 2009 12:13 PM

    “Eagles have made more playoffs and a Super Bowl appearance this decade but Cowboys/Redskins can’t lay claim to anything this decade at all.”
    There was an NFL before 2000, you know.
    You Eagirl fans and your convenient windows of time crack me up. The Cowboys have almost as many playoff WINS (32) as the Eagirls have playoff APPEARANCES (37) in spite of being around several decades less than the Eagirls. And that’s not a convenient window of time, it’s an all-time fact that needs no qualification.

  22. .VoxVeritas says: Dec 31, 2009 12:17 PM

    “I just don’t understand the purpose of that huge screen.”
    Primarily, it’s the scoreboard. You’d know that if you’d ever been to a game there.
    “If I’m sitting in the nose bleed section sure I can see what’s going on better but why bother with the hassle when you could easily watch from home without dealing with traffic and paying for tickets and parking.”
    That’s true of any stadium, with or without huge screens. Fans should feel free to divert their attention from the screen to the field at any time. And back to the screen, if they so choose. I think it’s great for replays and cheerleader shots. You would too if you’d ever been there.

  23. .VoxVeritas says: Dec 31, 2009 12:24 PM

    “Awesome photo from last season!”
    It’s from the 2007 season.

  24. VoxVeritas. says: Dec 31, 2009 12:30 PM

    But in all honesty, it’s really just a huge waste of money. JJ’s trying to compensate the fans for 0 playoff appearances in the last decade. It’s kind of like getting your girlfriend an HDTV for her birthday when you forgot to get her anything for 13 straight Christmases.

  25. nationscapital10 says: Dec 31, 2009 12:42 PM

    Are eagles fans proud of being the biggest chokers of the decade? Congrats losers, like your trashy city, your trashy team wins nothing ever. Why watch the game from the stadium, when you can watch at home? Because we are fans you moron! And we love our team, and the energy at the stadium is amazing, and the tv is a bonus, you dont have to watch it, we do live in a free country that allows you to watch the field or jumb tron. Get real losers.

    Happy New Year, everyone! Long time fan of the site, but first time posting…
    @ Vox:
    Thanks for reminding everyone of the fact there was an NFL before 2000.
    One will also recall there was an NFL before the Super Bowl, a time during which the Eagles won three NFL Championships.

    “There was an NFL before 2000, you know.”
    ah yes, the previous millennium, where the cowboys glory days are.

  28. Quagmire says: Dec 31, 2009 1:36 PM

    Hey Vox…ever get any other losers (from your myspace page) to play “Magic the Gathering” with you, or are you still lonely?

  29. ShootahCowboy says: Dec 31, 2009 1:41 PM

    @tom skiffington
    And what exactly were the Eagle glory days?
    New Philadelphia Area Code – 042 (0 for 2 in Super Bowls)

    You want proof? Tell me, because I’ve lived in various NFL Cities and I have NEVER seen a city obsess (let me know if you need a definition for that one too) over an NFL team the way the Eagle fans obsess over the Cowboys.
    As I am from the Philly area, I listen to 610 WIP. It could be May, and you will hear Eagle fans calling in about the Cowboys. It is actually quite pathetic. (Definition – See Eagle Fan) I won’t even get into how stupid Eagle fans are with their team. I’m telling you, Philadelphia must have some type of Napoleon syndrome when it comes to their football team…

  31. ShootahCowboy says: Dec 31, 2009 1:57 PM

    Quagmire,
    Are you that pathetic that you would look for someone on Myspace?
    Are we going to see you on one of those Dateline specials where grown are going to visit children?

  32. Quagmire says: Dec 31, 2009 2:09 PM

    Hey, someone on here mentioned it a few months back…it’s very funny.
    But if you are one of the losers that play the Magic game with Vox you probably don’t think it’s funny.

  33. toe-to-toe bird law says: Dec 31, 2009 2:13 PM

    Allow me to put into perspective the Cowboys’ lack of success over the past 13 seasons. Since 1996, the last season the Cowboys won a playoff game, only 7 teams have failed to squeak their way into the playoffs and win one game, the Cowboys included. The other 6 are the Bills, Texans, Browns, Bengals, Lions and Chiefs. Of that group, the Browns and Texans did not exist for the entirety of that 13 year stretch, so that puts “America’s Team” in the annals of the NFL along with only 4 other losing franchises who managed to accomplish this difficult feat. Dallas may very continue the streak this year.

    How is that pathetic? You Google “Vox Veritas” and it’s the first link that comes up. What’s really pathetic is the man the page represents. I bet if you were stupid enough to set a social networking page to YOUR PFT handle, people would see what a pathetic wretch you are.
    But if you want to defend your butt buddy, by all means go ahead. Texas Queers gotta stick together, literally and figuratively, I suppose.

  35. Bleed Green says: Dec 31, 2009 2:38 PM

    Yeah I was just disappointed when I saw this one. Not that it’s not clever, but the others this year have been much better.

    Don’t get me wrong, I find your fairytales highly entertaining. Please tell us the one about how you and your Witten jersey backed down 70 thousand drunken, blood thirsty barbarians again. That’s my favorite. I also like the one about you sitting in Jerruh’s box with ol’ Foreskin Face hisownself, him being the smartest person in the world at that point and you finishing a close second.

    Too damn funny…..

  37. FBGeek77 says: Dec 31, 2009 4:36 PM

    Okay, before watching it, I was all set to dismiss this as another “Florio just hates the Cowboys for some victory they had in the 90s that he can’t let go of” blah blah blah. But yeah, it’s pretty funny.
    Of course, all those balls hitting the board are pretty stupid, since that only happened once, during the preseason, when the kicker was actively trying to hit the board instead of getting off a good punt, but we can’t let facts get in the way of our jealousy, can we?

    Hey Chokeadelphia, ….The Cotton Bowl and the half-demolished Texas Stadium are nicer than that high school stadium that the eagirls call home

  40. antneejay2 says: Dec 31, 2009 11:32 PM

    @ ShootahCowboy
    I didn’t ask for proof. I asked if you had a definition of the word proof. I’m guessing you don’t because you offered a lame, biased and totally misguided opinion in lieu of proof, along with some good old fashioned B.S.
    You might want to consider cutting back on the lies. Lying doesn’t change reality, it just provides an empty promise to not have to deal with it. Plus, people know you’re lying, so the only one being had is you.
    By the way, what makes talking on the phone pathetic? Does touch tone bring you to tears? Maybe it wouldn’t be so saddening for you if you stopped listening to 610 WIP.

    ….Because Cowboys fans aren’t obsessed over the Eagles after that 44-6 buttwhooping the Birds handed them to end their season last year. It’s why someone will respond to this post crowing about a 4 point win in a much less meaningful game.
