The latest installment in the storied Philadelphia Eagles-Dallas Cowboys rivalry is upon us this weekend, and with it, the latest incident in the Howard Eskin-Cole Beasley Twitter feud.
The Eagles beat writer and the Cowboys receiver have beef that goes back to last season, and with Beasley set to play this weekend despite having sprained his foot against the Saints, Eskin was not going to let this opportunity pass him by.
Glad to see @Bease11 is back on the practice field today for #cowboys. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday when #eagles are in Dallas. Don’t forget Cole.. who’s your daddy. @SportsRadioWIP pic.twitter.com/8JS3fCBUAM— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) December 6, 2018
The feud originated last season when Eskin criticized Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, which Beasley did not take kindly to, calling it the "dumbest shit I've ever heard."
This is the dumbest shit I've ever heard. Dak is that dude. https://t.co/bnlUlYsWkV— Cole Beasley (@Bease11) November 13, 2017
Being a Philadelphia beat writer, Eskin was not going to take that sitting down, and savaged Beasley consistently and on multiple occasions over the next few weeks:
Hey bro you got beat by 20 last week to #falcons and 28 Sunday to #eagles and your on Twitter. PS..you had two catches for 7 yards of Dak’s 145. That ain’t special. @SportsRadioWIP https://t.co/f8FSo7GDYI— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) November 20, 2017
Not to be outdone, Beasley responded by letting Eskin know that his paycheck is...more sizable than Eskin's.
Naw but I got two kids whose college is payed for already and they’re still in diapers. ;) https://t.co/CWFZqsQXrL— Cole Beasley (@Bease11) November 20, 2017
How will Beasley react to the crude "daddy" photoshop? Well, this time it was fairly brief and straight forward.
Perhaps Beasley has learned to take these hits in stride, rather than lash out at those who don't deserve his time or attention.
