Eagles bring their own benches to Washington, cool or cringe?
The Eagles have officially gotten in on the dick-measuring contest between Dallas and Washington, bringing their own heated benches down to FedEx Field for today’s matchup.
Big brain fans will know the Eagles aren’t the only bench-bringers in the NFC East.
First, Dallas shipped heated benches to Washington a few weeks ago because they got a tip from Seattle the ones provided at FedEx field didn’t work half the time. Then, in an all-time petty move, wannabe Jerry Jones Dan Snyder had custom benches sent to the Linc for WFT’s road game there.
Now, Jeffrey Lurie and the Eagles are in the mix. Of course, the team is justified in bringing down heated benches because it will be a freezing cold *checks notes* 57 degrees at kickoff. Totally necessary, right?
I don’t know how to feel about this. When the Cowboys did it, I mocked them for being douchebags. When the Football Team did it, I ripped them for being copycat losers. With the Eagles getting involved, I’ve kind of backed myself into a corner.
Is it cringe? Absolutely. Do I care? Not at all!
The Eagles can do no wrong as long as they’re winning games. At 8-7, I’m inclined to shut up and let them play ball, regardless of the benches. It may be a result of blatant home-team bias, but what do you expect? It’s a Philly sports blog, not a court of law.
However, if they lose to WFT, I may go scorched earth on benches all together and demand the team stand for an entire game. It’s in their hands now.
