It's now week four of the NFL season, and that means the first matchup between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles is on tap. It also means that the back-and-forth chit-chat is due to begin, and Eagles defensive end Trent Cole wasted no time in firing the first shot.
While appearing on "Eagles Unscripted" -a Saturday night show on PHL 17- Cole was asked which would be easier to catch and release: a deer or Giants quarterback Eli Manning?
Well, the obvious answer is a deer, so the attempt at humor truly failed. However, Cole took it a bit further and didn't miss his opportunity for a swipe at Easy-E.
In terms of trash talk, this is about as tame and ridiculous as it gets. But hey, who hasn't seen a deer evade a sack and toss a bomb to David Tyree on third-and-five, extending the drive that would eventually win Super Bowl XLII?
The true irony in this "insult" is that it occurred on Saturday night – the day before the Eagles were absolutely manhandled by the Arizona Cardinals. But, hey … priorities. Right?
