This is definitely the right approach to have when it comes to divisional games, as these comments from Grugier-Hill just come off as petty, especially due to the fact that the Cowboys have already defeated the Eagles this season.
Word of Grugier-Hill's comments spread quickly through Dallas' locker room. "So we'll go down there and make them choke". "I didn't mean to disrespect this organization or coach Pederson", Grugier-Hill said.
Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, walks on the field before the game against the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium on November 19, 2017 in Arlington, Texas.
"After being told again, Dak said, "'Coach Garrett has a great saying.winners worry about winning and losers worry about winners".
Grugier-Hill wasn't available until Friday.
Pederson made it clear to the third-year player the comments were unnecessary.
The Cowboys normally don't win games when they lose the turnover margin, but times... they are a-changing.
"The guys knew coming out of that game they just flat-out didn't play well", said Pederson. I talk to the team a lot about how we don't need to post anything that can be used on other teams' website or bulletin board. We still have to go play.
This game was already going to be a huge one for both teams, but now there's been some extra fuel added to the fire.
