Eagles’ Kelce: I’ve ‘never really appreciated’ what Cowboys stand for

Jason Kelce has added more fuel to the Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys rivalry ahead of their Week 10 matchup.

The Eagles center discussed his dislike of the Cowboys organization and its "fair-weather" fans during a Wednesday morning appearance on Philadelphia radio station 94WIP.

"I would say mostly I just don't think a lot of players, in particular, me, just don't really like the franchise, the organization, what it stands for - what it's always stood for," Kelce said. "This goes back to the lockout when they were getting replacement players, how outspoken the Dallas Cowboys franchise was in ending that. I've just never really appreciated what the organization and what its fans really stood for. A lot of fair-weather people from across the country that just kind of fell in love because they're winners instead of having any type of emotional connection to the team whatsoever.

"There's a ton of players they got that I got a lot of respect for, Sean Lee, Travis Frederick, unfortunately, is going through some serious health concerns, but he's a tremendous player. I've got some respect for some of their guys, it's most of the organization that you don't like."

The Eagles will host the Cowboys on Sunday in the first of two meetings this season.
