The slowly developing war of words between Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek and Cowboys' linebacker Keith Brooking continued this week where it began, on ESPN Radio 103.3's "Galloway and Company."
But for the short of memory, a little back-story: shortly after the Eagles traded Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins, Brooking called the move a mistake on the part of Philly. He praised McNabb highly, and said that, in the final two games between the teams--two decisive Cowboys victories--the play-calling, and not the quarterback, was at fault.
Celek took exception to Brooking's estimation, and said on GAC the next week that he "can't wait to play" Brooking and the Cowboys again.
Brooking, speaking to Galloway on Wednesday, welcomes the enthusiasm.
“Oh, he’ll find me, I promise,” Brooking said, per ESPNDallas.com. “You can print that one. He won’t have to look for me very hard.”
Point taken, but Brooking went a step further, and extended an invitation to the young tight end as well.
“He can jump in the middle of our huddle," Brooking said,"if he’s that bad."
It should be noted that Celek will have ample time to fire back: the two teams won't meet again until December 12 of this year on NBC's Football Night in America.
