Cowboys Up The Ante; Talk A Little Trash To Vick, Eagles (In June)

Raise your hand if you left the two 2011 match-ups with the Philadelphia Eagles all warm and fuzzy inside?

Noone? No takers? Hmmm...

Well, someone on the Cowboys PR staff either has a short memory, a great sense of humor, or both. Today, mixed in amongst the usual offseason twitter scroll, appeared this shot across the bow that some might find hilarious.

Earlier this offseason, our freshly acquired cornerback Brandon Carr alerted the rival New York Giants that Victor Cruz would not be performing any salsa dances against the Cowboys in 2012. Now, the PR staff is getting in on the trash-talking act.

Apparently, they didn't get Jay Ratliff's memo about "Shut up and do your job." Now, I'm lukewarm about a player talking trash when the team hasn't made the post season in two years; even less enthusiastic about it being done in April.

But the PR/Marketing team? Yikes. No one on this keyboard is scared of the Eagles; but some guy behind their keyboard can't cash any checks on the field. Cough, PR guy, cough.

I guess they subscribe to Mark Cuban's theory that all professional athletes want to win equally; so something like this could never be used as extra motivation.

For all the latest on the Cowboys offseason, stay tuned to the SB Nation Dallas storystream as well as Blogging The Boys.
