DeMarcus Lawrence advises Doug Pederson to stay on the sidelines

Doug Pederson’s non-guarantee guarantee was guaranteed to grab the attention of the Cowboys.

While most players had no public negative reaction about the Eagles coach’s off-the-cuff “we’re gonna win” on WIP radio that he later insisted at a press conference wasn’t a victory guarantee, Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence sounded off.

“He’s gotta come here,” Lawrence said, via Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Tell him to come on. We ready. Can he play the game? He might want to shut his ass up and stay on the sidelines. He can’t play the game for them.”

The Cowboys know that this year’s Sunday night showdown with the Eagles carries similar significance to last year’s, a Dallas win in Philadelphia that provided the spark for a 7-1 second half of the season.

“We have went through this before,” Lawrence said, according to Hill. “We have seen hell. We done dug out of the pits of it. We was 3-5 last year. What is it to fear? We know what we got to do. We are doing to show it. Period.”

Lawrence, as noted by Hill, has seen his reps reduced in recent weeks. Lawrence made it clear that he’ll be playing more on Sunday night.

“You don’t have to worry about it this week,” Lawrence said. “Doug Pederson done called us out. So y’all know what it is.”

What it is is a great Sunday night game. Coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET on NBC with Football Night in America.

  1. Wentz is poison to eagles he has no heart hes terrible for chemistry Wentz 6-19 vs teams over 500 wentz went 5 and 6 last year he went 7 and 9 in 2016 zero playoff wins same team wins with foles

  2. Cowboys are probably hoping Lawrence gets his first ever sack against the Eagles, in his 10th game against them.
    But as he says … he done went done this before …. he doing a show it!

  3. Haha, a coach can’t even say his team is going to win huh. What’s Doug supposed to say….’well, since I can’t play….I hope the Eagles that I coach maybe win this game?’

  4. The best thing that can happen is for the Cowboys to lose a fourth straight, both QB’s leave injured, and the expensive extortion contract Cowboy running back gets 10 yards and is lost for the season.

    If Philthy won this game it would not impact the playoffs at all since they won’t make the playoffs.

    And after the carnage of this game, the Giants could win the NFC East with a rookie QB. And I loathe the New York Nightmara Family Crime Syndicate.

  5. Not sure what to make of his rant. Other than he did not major in grammar at whatever institution of higher learning he faked his way through before pro football…

  6. “We have went (sic) through this before.”

    I’ll give you a D+ for an English composition grade, DL.

    Well… you certainly have a sunny disposition!

  8. Just asking — can’t these NFL players learn how to speak proper grammar? I mean, what do they do they go to college for? (We all know the answer).

    Wentz is going to get murdered

    The Eagles are mouthy bums
    ………………………………….

    Sour grapes ?

  10. Why are reporters so scared to ask guys the tough questions! Like someone needs to ask him …. “Demarcus, what is 2 times 2?”

  11. DeMarcus is such an eloquent spokesperson. I am certain Boise State is very proud of their former student.
    Pederson was voicing confidence in his team to help them rebound from a poor game against the Vikings. I see nothing wrong with a coach stating that they are going to prepare and win the game.
    Nothing to see here, move along.
    That is all.

  12. The Cowboys crapped the bed vs. Jets. He saw plenty of weaknesses to exploit. No big deal. Cowboys should shut up and try to do better.

  13. So we gonna read some articles about all the crow Lawrence is eating on Monday morning? Yeah, ain’t nobody got the stones to ask him about it.

  14. Hey DL just because Garrett doesn’t help Dallas win games, doesn’t mean Pederson is an important part of the team. He must be confused because he has never had a decent head coach. I heard from a Cowboys fan it was “Tank for Garrett Firing” this weekend.

  15. Lawrence runs his mouth a lot but I’ll say this. He backed it up last year in the Saints game. If he backs it up this week I’m okay with it.

  16. Lawrence ought to prove he deserves that large contract before he opens his mouth, so far he has shown he has the Albert Haynesworth syndrome of a large contract and guaranteed money equals time to relax and avoiding doing much like rushing the passer or even attempting to tackle someone.

    Stupid obvious question, isn’t a coach supposed to say they are going to win. Maybe that is why coach clappy is such a mediocre coach.

  17. After all of the crap Dallas fans were spewing out for beating 3 worthless teams,they really do need to close that enormous hole in their faces!!! Still laughing about that Jets game,LOL!!! and go Eagles!!!

  18. Obviously this guy skipped all forms of grammar, grades K-12 hahahaha. I’m sorry, it’s 2019 and we’re about to roll into 2020. This isn’t acceptable anymore. I’m stationed, have been stationed and have deployed to many countries around this great Earth and the locals speak better English than these guys. Heck, he can go down to Mexico and find the people there more fluent than he is hahahaha.

  19. Bobnotmillion NFL head coaches are not supposed to say we’re gonna win” and when we win . This isn’t high school football. At this level it is considered arrogant and disrespectful to the opposing team. Person is a moron and won’t sniff another Superbowl.

    Terribly in need of learning the English language at above 2nd grade level, this Lawrence fellow

    ——–

    We live in a multi cultural society and all languages are welcomed. Perhaps you should make an effort to learn his language.

  24. Gotta love eagle fans. They win 1 Superbowl in what over 50 yrs and think they are the class of the NFL. The eagles will not go to another Superbowl ever. That’s a fact. Lol enjoy your one.

  25. Lol. Dude let the Jets do what they want to them but he’s talking smack to a coach that has 2 SuperBowls. One as a player against the Pats and Parcells and another as a coach against Belichick and he did it with a 2nd string QB who’s better than any QB on the Cowboys.

    No one, I mean NO ONE is scared of the Cowboys.

  26. Steel palace, they won it 2 years ago. The cowboys are 25 years and counting. Yes, we do enjoy it…

  27. Historically, I have always been against paying college athletes because I thought they derived significant value from a college education.

    Evidently, this is yet another example of how wrong I am. Pay them and remove the pretense of education.

  28. I’m a huge cowboy fan but Lawrence needs to shut the bleak up. He’s got all them dollars but ain’t done jack this year but run his mouth. Right now Lawrence is an embarrassment and a liability.no one cares what u have to say Demarcus so why don’t u just shut the hell up and start earning your paycheck.

  29. Boise State still cranking out top notch English students I see. After deciphering this diarrhea the only thing that’s clear is he’s deflecting his feelings about his own coach to another.

    Has anyone seen or heard from Jason Garrett this week ?
    Well , then again , what possibly would he have to say ?

    DeMarcus Lawrence is not speaking a “different” language. He’s butchering the English language.

  32. “We have went through this before,” Lawrence said, according to Hill. “We have seen hell. We done dug out of the pits of it. We was 3-5 last year. What is it to fear? We know what we got to do. We are doing to show it. Period.”

    You know what’s best about his statement?

    DeMarcus Lawrence was a Communications major,

    Dont look now, but Dallas is already about half way to that 50 year mark without a title. Now THATS a fact!

    Well this is not true at all. He is 9-12 against teams over 500 going into this year for his career. Not HOF numbers but not bad for a guy that has 3 (injury plagued) seasons under his belt.

    Nyneal..Not sure about grammar but it was kinda tough trying to read your quote..

    ——————————————————————————————

    Did you go to the same schools as Lawrence?

  36. Cowboys acting WAY too desperate for a Week 7 game: rushing injured players back, playing-up a innocuous comment by an opposing coach. They’re putting too much pressure on themselves to beat the Eagles on Sunday. Losing three straight will do that to a team, but this game isn’t going to decide the NFC East, no matter which team wins/loses. It’s Week 7 – the winner will have a 1-game lead with 9 games still to play, including a rematch. Problem with making this game bigger than it is: if Cowboys lose – heading into their bye week, it’s likely they will not recover. Lack of leadership from Garrett (and Jones) is part of the problem. No team should ever put all their eggs in a Week 7 basket (unless they’re 0-6).

  37. Enough already.

    Typical cowboys,bumping their gums, just like when they started 3-0..then they played proper teams and it all came crashing down

    lets see how big your mouths are after sunday yeah?

  38. “My guys are going to screw around all week at practice, play a lot of grab ass, we’re going to go down to Dallas this week and get our asses handed to us!”

    There… Does that make you feel better now? Geez, a coach expressing confidence in his team. Maybe that is foreign to Dallas.

    You are a complete idiot. No heart? Wentz stayed in to throw a TD pass on a torn ACL in 2017. No heart? He was the only one that seemed ticked off last week as evidence of him throwing his helmet to the ground. Wentz is better than Foles. It is time you accept that. Look at TD-INT ratio over the first 40 games of both of their careers.

    You are NOT too bright hater…

  40. Took 11 injured starters the first match and 13 injured in the second game and a ton of questionable calls for the cowboys to beat the eagles last year. Both teams could lose to the giants tomorrow. These idiot cowboy players should really be quiet. They just lost to the jets

  41. Wingedloser a coach is supposed to coach not run his mouth to the media. Garrett isn’t a great coach but he knows how to act professional . Peterson acts like he was raised in Philadelphia

  42. How do athletes who can barely speak English matriculate through high school and college? Or has the American education system become so pathetic that the three Rs just don’t matter (especially if you can rush the passer)?

    Justin Morris wentz did not throw a touchdown pass with torn acl. He ran for a TD and was injured on the play and said goodbye for the rest of the year

    Leave it to a cowboy fan to speak nonsense. Wentz tore his ACL and remained in the game and threw a td to alshon.
