Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni wore a "Beat Dallas" t-shirt to a press conference this week. It certainly takes a healthy set of balls to put that shirt on before traveling to Dallas to take on the Cowboys for the first time as a head coach.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones caught wind of the Eagles head coach's t-shirt and seemed to respect the balls it takes to wear that shirt, via CBS Sports:
"Well listen, I've had enough of...over the years Philadelphia, they take such pride in creating slogans and creating different types of expressions," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan (Dallas) Friday. "My hero is Drew Pearson for standing up there in Philadelphia and just putting it on them in terms of what's there.
"Make no mistake about it. That inspires their fan base. It probably inspires their players. There's no rougher place to play in the whole country than Philadelphia. No question, they're a great rival."
The NFC East, as it has been the last few years, is up for grabs this season. It might just take a healthy set of balls from a rookie head coach to settle things.
