Philly fans scooping up dog masks

After the Eagles beat the Falcons in the divisional round, Philly tackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Chris Long donned dog masks, a Captain Obvious reference to their status as underdogs in the postseason. Look for more of those dog masks to show up before and during Sunday’s game against the Vikings.

Via SportsBusiness Daily, Eagles fans are buying up dog masks wherever they can find them. Long said the players bought the masks on Amazon for $10.99; they’re now sold out.

Apparently, dog masks can’t be found for purchase anywhere.

The Eagles once again face underdog status on Sunday against the Vikings, as Vegas sets the betting line with the goal of getting equal betting on each side of it. The number of humans dressed as dogs on Sunday remains to be seen.

  1. I wasn’t paying close attention at the end of the game and then I looked up and saw one of those players walking around in that dog mask. I was wondering if somebody spiked my drink.

    Please oh PLEASE dont let Joe Buck and Troy Aikman call this game.

    PLEASE!

    You do know that those two are FOX’s #1 team and FOX has the NFC package. Right?

    Buck is actually pretty good and called a great Super Bowl last February. Tony Romo has fallen in love with own voice and that’s a problem right now on CBS. Someone should sedate him before the Super Bowl.

    Everytime Troy talks I look at Joe who gives him a loving gaze and then turns to the camera to acknowledge the audience with a smirk that makes me want to vomit.

    Watch it…and watch it closely…then throw up.

  4. Dog masks. This is really funny. We have plenty of that kind of thing in Wisconsin. But they aren’t masks. They are permanent.

  5. They were underdogs to the #6th seed, and the #6th seed played like the #6th seed. This Sunday will be different. Zimmer stayed away from his double A gap blitz out of respect for Brees. That will not be the case for Foles and the RPO will be sufficiently shut down.

    Howbout during the playoffs you create a new screenname and talk football? Christ two days after a miracle finish and you can’t get away from your disdain for Packer fans/Wisconsinites? Sad little one-trick pony.

  8. @13worldchamp…..: Why would Zimmer stay away from the double A gap blitz out of respect for Brees?

    Most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

    My bet is that he runs what he thinks will work at the given time regardless which opposing QB is under center.

    Just a hunch.

    You Packer fans can dish out endless days of entitled arrogant posts on Vikings threads but you cant take one day of it?

    Notice how quiet packer fans have been during the postseason? Go join them.

  10. Hard to believe the Eagles are underdogs again. The Vikings won on a lucky play after blowing their second half lead. Case Keenum isn’t going to score many TDs throwing ducks up for grabs in Philadelphia. As mediocre as the Eagles offense has been the last few weeks, their defense has been outstanding. The Vikings are a good team, but the Eagles earned every bit of their #1 seeding. Underdogs. Just watch.

    Oh hey Jeffrey. One day? Seriously you say one day? Is it today? OK, pick the day. Go ahead, your choice contra, any day you want. Can I pick any one of the days from the last three months? No, it’s better if you pick it.

    Do any of those days where there were threads about the Pack front office suffice?

    I get it. Your team is more successful, good, congratulations. Enjoy it. I have freely admitted the Vikings are in better shape than the Packers, now and for next year.

    But for most of you, that’s not enough. You have to be both good AND the Packers must already be relegated to Sucking for Years. And that’s stupid, but whatever. The “no matter what the Pack do they will be wrong” nonsense. But hey you guys have a right to post whatever you want, at least it’s football related.

    But Dahmed’s post…….not about football, not clever, and really kind of petty. And not just “today” either….

  12. The Eagles got lucky getting away from the bad falcons team. Trust me, this Sunday is going to be different. Vikings team could possibly shut them out. Foles ain’t Brees and will panic/choke against Vikings defense. On the other hand, people claiming Vikings got lucky on one play to advance. That play was not lucky as much more than spectacular play from Diggs and Keenun, and great cal from Shurmur. A play like that is what propels a team to have more confident and faith. Vikings will win.

  13. The Eagles are really good at home. The defense especially. They are giving up less than 13 points a game at home over the past 2 seasons. Funny how all of these tools are blindly underestimating their home field advantage.

    That was the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard? Did you watch the game? How many blitz packages did you see through the A gap?

    You don’t blitz great Qbs nearly as much because the risk outweighs the reward. The Saints have such a good screen game, you’d be stupid to blitz through the a gap on that.

  15. Joe Has died his hair blonde to match Troy and the way he gazes at him. Single White Female comes to mind. It’s disturbing.

  16. To the poster that said the Vikes will shut down the RPO..LOL..seriously? What RPO. I’m an Eagles fan and even I can say Foles running looks like a giraffe on ice skates..He ain’t running! Nothing to shut down here. But Blount is going to wear them down for Ajayi and Clement. The Superbowl is in MN..but the Vikes will be in the stands..not sidelines

    ****

    I said that. You aren’t aware of what an RPO is? The Eagles ran it a million times against the Falcons and it doesn’t have anything to do with Foles running.

  18. A lot of people would be cheering on the Vikings right now if it wasn’t for their fans.
    We’ve all heard the phrase “hard to like”, but in this case it’s impossible to like”.

  19. This is going to be a low scoring game. 2 great defenses and whoever creates the least amount of turnovers is gonna win. Here’s hoping Zimm’s D has their best game ever and Case does not throw up a duck like in the last game.
