Emmitt Smith sends strong message to Cowboys fans regarding Eagles’ Super Bowl appearances
It goes without saying that Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is an easy player to root for.
From his early adversity in college to Hurts’ calm and collected composure, players around the league, past and present, have praised the emerging star.
The latest to voice his appreciation for Jalen Hurts: Cowboys legend and Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith. NBC10 Philadelphia recently caught up with the three-time Super Bowl champion, who made a bold prediction for the big game this Sunday.
“I love him. He is a proven champion. They have a great chance of winning this week and he is the reason why they will win,” @EmmittSmith22 on Jalen Hurts. And if the Eagles win a second? “Cant say nothing. Keep your mouth closed”. @NBCPhiladelphia special Friday at 7:30. pic.twitter.com/WCU9PiPq5E— rob kuestner (@rkuestnernbc10) February 9, 2023

Reporter: “What are Cowboys fans gonna say if the Eagles do win the Super Bowl?”
Smith: “Can’t say nothin’. Can’t say nothin’, keep ya mouth closed.”
Bold words from a player who spent 13 seasons with the hated division-rival Dallas Cowboys. Real recognizes real at the end of the day, and Emmitt Smith knows a thing or two about winning championships.
The Cowboys haven’t played in an NFC Championship Game in nearly 30 years, while Philadelphia has been to seven since 2000, the most appearances of any team in that span. Don’t worry, Dallas fans, you can always relive your glory days from the ’90s — granted you have a functional VCR.
