Eagles coach Nick Sirianni has bought into his team’s rivalry with the Cowboys and Philadelphia’s hatred of America’s Team. Sirianni wore a T-shirt that read “Beat Dallas” to his news conference Thursday.

“Yeah, I’m sure they’re going to have the picture of this shirt on there, and that’s fine,” Sirianni said when asked if he was giving the Cowboys bulletin board material, via the Dallas Morning News. “This is about a great rivalry and that means a lot to this city, that means a lot in our building.”

Sirianni said he will wear the shirt all week as will his wife and his kids.

On Monday night, the Eagles and Cowboys will meet for the 121st time. Neither team’s fan base likes the other’s, with Sirianni comparing the rivalry to a college rivalry.

“You can definitely feel it,” Sirianni said. “I can’t tell you how many times since I’ve been here having an interaction with a fan, it’s, like, ‘Hey, beat Dallas.’ And I think that’s really cool. I think that’s awesome.”

Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein said Sirianni is simply displaying out loud what everyone is thinking. Only the name of the city changes: In Dallas, it’s “Beat Philadelphia.” In Philadelphia, it’s “Beat Dallas.”

“They’re definitely probably our biggest rival since I’ve been here, probably the team I don’t like the most,” Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott said.

  1. Way to display your inferiority complex to the world. Inferior franchise, inferior city, 4 fewer SB rings. So cute – Eagles fans obsess over beating Dallas like a little kid whose only goal in life is to beat his older brother at something. Too bad Dallas is the better team though, huh? Sorry, little bro! Monday won’t end well for you.

  2. Can’t sit here and say that the rest of the league’s fans particularly like Philly, but I’d bet that even fewer like Dallas.

  3. “I’d bet that even fewer like Dallas.”

    It’s called jealousy. Why do you think the Yankees and Lakers are the most hated MLB/NBA teams?

    It’s not jealousy when it comes to Dallas. It’s that Jerry is a manipulative creep.

  5. “Way to display your inferiority complex to the world. Inferior franchise, inferior city…”

    …As many postseason wins in one season (2017) as the Cowboys have in the past 20 years…

  6. @divan22 Little brother, eh? In the last quarter century, all Philly has done is go to 5 NFC championship games and two super bowls. Dallas?
