Ouch. That's going to hurt his election chances.

I bet he drops 6 points.

Nah.  We love G Cobb here.  Nobody cares that he played for the cowboys after he played for the Eagles.

Seems like the person running against him seems ignorant that the entire Philadelphia Eages fanbase knows this fact.

Sure the real fans know.  But hatred for the Cowboys is universal.

i was thinking it'd be more like the Giants fanbase, but after RTFA, I stand corrected.

Wow. I do not remember this guy.

You would think the real skeleton in the closet would he his season with the Lions. Obviously he didn't bury that secret shame deep enough.

Philly is cool with the Mets.  After all, they don't have to claim to be "America's Team".  Because they already are.

Bah, make that 6 seasons. So obviously, he's a masochist.

You have to be from SEPA or south Jersey to understand the burning hatred of the Cowboys that children here are born with.  It's wired into our lizard brains shortly after birth.

No, I totally understand the hate. In central California, if you're not a Niners fan, you're a Cowboys fan. And it's like gang level hatred there sometimes.

Those weren't available until after 1960.

I can't conceive of being anywhere near SF and not being a Niners fan.  That has to be strange.

Lions, Eagles, Cowboys.

Sounds like a movie pitch idea. Like a "the good, the bad, the narnia"

Central California is the redneck part of the state. Fresno, Bakersfield. Also a large migrant Hispanic population that roots for the Cowboys because, Tejas.

That sounds like a typical GOP political concern.

.... is hoping Cobb's name recognition as a former Birds Eagles linebacker ....

what the fark is up with writers nowadays. why the sudden rush to rename all the teams. the local NBA team gets refereed to as the "Pels". are the writers and speakers too damn lazy to say Pelicans? they used to call the Hornets the Bees for god's sake. hornets are not bees. not even close. stop being cutesy and be professional. it's not a god damned blog post.

The Eagles have been "the birds" for as long as I can remember.  But never in print.  It's like saying "down the shore".

Cowboy hatred is pretty universal, but yes, it's majorly strong in the DelVal.

I know. A former Dallas Cowboy running for office? He better get caught smoking crack so he can out this whole cowboys thing behind him

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys.
Don't let 'em wear silver or ugly blue stars,
Let 'em be Redskins and Niners and Cards.

Any SJ Farkers know if  Lindenwold in this district?

It is not.

Another point from a local paper is that Cobb was a defendant in the NFL brain damage lawsuit.
