Harrison, Collinsworth Pick Eagles In Round Three



    In the wake of the Cowboys 24-17 upset of the Saints in New Orleans, we learned that some of the Cowboys had their feathers ruffled by the comments of NBC analyst and former coach Tony Dungy.

    When asked if Dallas had a chance against the Saints, Dungy replied simply, "No chance."

    While certainly less incendiary--perhaps they learned something by watching Dungy eat his humble pie--we wonder if the comments of NBC's Cris Collinsworth and Rodney Harrison might find their way to a bulletin board in Valley Ranch, as well.

    "That team (the Eagles) has played too well all year and made too many plays not to have a chance to go all the way should they knock off the Cowboys," Collinsworth said in a Tuesday conference call.

    Okay, upon further review, this is not bulletin board material. But this, offered up by Harrison, probably is:

    "I flat-out think Andy Reid is a better coach," Harrison said. "I'm picking Philadelphia to win this game. I'm picking Philadelphia to go all the way to the Super Bowl."

    Interestingly enough, in the same conference call, Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News Sports Media Blog asked both if they would rather be 2-0, or 0-2 going into a third match-up with a division rival. Both said they'd prefer 2-0.
