Shortly after the Eagles were anointed the “dream team,” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan suggested that “all-hype team” would be a better moniker, and vowed to “beat the ass” of the Eagles.
That got a lot of attention at the time, but as the Eagles and Cowboys prepare to meet on Sunday, Michael Vick says the whole thing is being ignored in the Eagles’ locker room.
“We know it’s a competitive game and sometimes people say things they regret days, weeks and months later,” Vick said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think from a competitive standpoint, he was just talking. It was nothing that we really paid any attention to because we know what really counts is when you step out on the football field and whoever wins and loses the game, that’s what matters.”
Eagles coach Andy Reid was similarly dismissive when asked about Ryan’s comments.
“I don’t get into those,” Reid said. “We just play. We practice and play.”
The Eagles would prefer to respond to Ryan’s comments on the field.
