Michael Irvin: Eagles Are NFC East Favorites, Not Cowboys


Michael Irvin is going to catch hell for this one.

The Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys wide receiver recently joined 97.5 The Fanatic to discuss the Eagles and the Cowboys — post DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy.

Irvin believes that Jerry Jones and Co. made a huge mistake in letting DeMarco Murray walk to the Eagles. According to Irvin, the Eagles and not the Cowboys, are the best team in the NFC East.

Irvin: “Philly is the favorite in the NFC East. You have to be able to, and it’s a difficult thing, to separate my head from my heart. You cannot tell me and you’ can’t convince me that you can just stick anybody back there. And if they had drafted a Melvin Gordon, or drafted a (Todd) Gurley, then, I’d go, ‘wait a minute, wait a minute, this might be something.’ but with Darren McFadden, and he may have some great things going, but right now I would take Philly, and then Dallas in the NFC East.”

Irvin believes the Cowboys should sign any running back on the open market.
