Sure, the NFC East is the worst division in football and the Dallas Cowboys are on life support, but it's still Dallas Week in Philadelphia!
Eagles 32-year-old defensive end Brandon Graham has spent his entire—and very productive—11 year career in Philadelphia. BG, who has co-hosted numerous radio shows on SportsRadio94WIP at Chickie's and Pete's among other Philly-area locations, understands the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry as well as any player on either side.
"I didn't understand it—I do understand because of Michigan and Ohio State—but I didn't understand between Philadelphia and the Cowboys and of course, knowing the division, that's a division game too. It's just a lot of things I had to learn first before I actually started to develop that," Graham told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday. "And man, I'm right with you. Just hearing Cowboys fans in Philadelphia, it made me want to get at them even more because you know how the fans are, all the trash talk and you know how I am. All it takes is for you to go back at me and now I'm ready to go!"
"I feel like the passion of how they feel about the team created that," Graham continued. "Like you said, they just kind of weasel around and they want to bring their jackets out, their shirts out and all that stuff. Man, it just really do—boils your blood."
On the field, more importantly, BG is still getting it done, as he is putting together one of his best NFL seasons. Graham is tied for third in the NFL with 6.0 sacks already, including his game-winning strip sack on Giants QB Daniel Jones last week.
Graham talks about that and more in his interview on the 94WIP Morning Show.
