The Dallas Cowboys are getting roasted on Twitter for not only calling Eddie George a team legend, but also using the wrong name in a since-deleted tweet.
Known as America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys sure haven’t lived up to that name after going 6-10 last year and missing out on the postseason. The team has countless haters out there and the list is only growing this week following an Eddie George gaffe.
With George taking over as the head coach of Tennessee State, the Cowboys decided to honor George as a team legend. George, a Cowboys legend, after spending only one season with the team? Give us a break.
Dallas claiming Eddie George to be a Cowboys legend is a complete joke
Let’s be clear here. George is not a Cowboys legend. When you think of the running back, you of course think of Ohio State and the Tennessee Titans. Not Dallas, an organization he only played 13 games for.
To make things even worse here for the Cowboys, in their first tweet showing love to George, they referred to him as Eddie James. The intern who fired off this tweet either got fired or got quite the talking to. Regardless, that’s two strikes for Dallas here.
George was with the Oilers/Titans from 1996-03, earning four trips to the Pro Bowl during that time. After a sensational career with the Buckeyes too, George was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
For his NFL career, he rushed for 10,441 yards and 68 touchdowns. With Dallas, he recorded 132 rush yards and four scores. You mean to tell us those numbers are legendary? Absolutely not. That’s like saying Jerry Rice is a Seattle Seahawks legend because he suited up for the team back in 2004. Nope, no chance.
