David Akers staged an epic troll of Cowboys fans while announcing Eagles pick
Whoever the NFL picked to announce the Philadelphia Eagles’ second-round pick, he needed some thick skin.
David Akers did just fine, and then the Eagles team he was representing stuck it to the Dallas Cowboys.
A little backstory: Last year, when the draft was in Philadelphia, Eagles fans relentlessly booed Cowboys great Drew Pearson as Pearson put on a show to agitate the Philly fans. It was the most entertaining moment of the draft.
The NFL moved the draft to the Cowboys’ home stadium in 2018, and since the league has former players from each team announce second-round picks, someone had to stand up in front of the Cowboys fans and take some payback during the Eagles’ pick. Former Eagles kicker Akers got the call, and he did his best Pearson imitation. He egged on the Cowboys fans as the booing got louder and louder.
“What’s up Dallas? We heard you in Philly last year!” Akers said from the podium.
Akers started to rattle off the Eagles championship accomplishments last season: NFC East champs, NFC champs ….
“And WORLD CHAMPS!” Akers yelled. “The world champs! Hey Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren’t born!”
