Dallas Week: Demarcus Lawrence throws shade at Jalen Hurts, Eagles offense ahead of Week 6 matchup
Thanks to Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence, the Eagles will have a little extra motivation heading into Dallas Week. As if they needed any.
When speaking with the Dallas media following Thursday’s practice session, Lawrence fielded a handful of questions surrounding Eagles QB Jalen Hurts and the improvements he’s shown through five games.
Demarcus Lawrence on Jalen Hurts’ improvement this season
Lawrence is correct, Hurts hasn’t played Dallas yet this season. It takes a true genius to know that.
He has, however, faced the Jaguars defense. A defense that currently ranks fifth in points allowed. Hurts and Co. still managed to put up 29 points against that unit in Week 4, the most they’ve allowed in a game this season.
After Lawrence reluctantly gave the Eagles offense some props, he continued his rant with this cringy line.
“But also, We Dem Boys,” Lawrence uttered. “Remember that. Don’t worry about it. We’ll see it on Sunday.”
Imagine saying the phrase “We Dem Boys” unironically.
Imagine referencing a subpar Wiz Khalifa song in an attempt to hype yourself up.
Couldn’t be me.
At least Dreams and Nightmares was created by a Philadelphia native. Not to mention its certified banger status.
Here’s the rest of what Demarcus Lawrence had to say about this Sunday’s matchup
“How about this,” Lawrence said. “This is the last question I hear about Hurts. For real though, because I really don’t care.” (It sounds like he cares).
“You know, you’re asking me questions like I should be worried about them,” he continued. “Never worried, never scared, never quivering from any situation.”
Honestly, you have to give Demarcus Lawrence some respect here. Despite racking up just three sacks in 14 career games against the Eagles, the man still has the confidence to run his mouth and talk down on an MVP candidate. Remarkable stuff from the Cowboys pass rusher.
Whenever a player starts running their mouth, it’s typically in an attempt to boost their own confidence because in the back of their head, they know they’re overmatched.
Lawrence isn’t the only Cowboy to do it this week. Jason Peters called Eagles fans “fuckin’ idiots” on Wednesday; a statement that I personally take as a compliment, to be frank.
The constant noise coming from Dallas means one thing and one thing only — they’re scared.
Lawrence knows he can’t beat Lane Johnson off the edge. Peters knows he’ll be lucky if he doesn’t get pushed to the ground every time he steps on the field. As a team, the Cowboys knows who their daddy is.
To quote Demarcus Lawrence, “We’ll see it on Sunday.”
