While it definitely takes a great amount of sport-related skill to be a professional athlete, there are some other key skill sets required to be successful on the field, court, or ice.

One of those things, undeniably, is trash talk

No matter how good or bad you are in the actual course of play, a good chirp could throw off the mental game and intimidate even the best of opponents.

This afternoon, one of the Philadelphia Eagles’ linebackers, Kamu Grugier-Hill, had some huge fighting words for the Dallas Cowboys, ahead of their game this upcoming Sunday. 

Yeah, tell them how you really feel. 

This game has massive meaning for both teams, and the the winner of the contest between two of the biggest rivals in the NFL will take the lead in the NFC East.

The Cowboys are obviously feeling confident, as they’re riding a four game win streak, and are coming off a huge win against the Saints. The Eagles are scrambling to defend their Super Bowl title, and are obviously confident in their abilities to knock off the Cowboys this weekend.

While the Cowboys took the W in the first matchup between these two teams earlier this season, the Eagles are definitely 1-0 as far as chirps go.
