After facing the fast-paced Philadelphia Eagles offense on Thanksgiving Day, defensive end Jeremy Mincey was left wishing the home crowd at AT&T Stadium would have made more noise, noise that--he believes--potentially could have slowed down Chip Kelly’s attack.
“I really think the noise could have slowed down that uptempo offense,” Mincey said, per Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas. “But we just have to continue to get better and do our part.”
As it happened, the Eagles ran roughshod over the Cowboys defense on their way to a 33-10 victory. They finished with 464 yards of offense, 256 of those coming on the ground.
“It’s tough. We need a little bit more support from the fans when the defense is on the field,” Mincey said. “We need them controlling the quarterback. They help the snap count, and they help everything. If our fans could just raise the bar, they want us to raise the bar, they have to raise the bar, too. We’re counting on the fans, just as much as they count on us. We need ya, baby. Come on.”
