Jason Peters tears Eagles fans apart before homecoming: “F***** Idiots!”

Doug Pederson got a standing ovation on his homecoming in Philadelphia. Don’t expect the same reaction when Jason Peters stars on the big screen on Sunday Night Football. Not after his inflammatory comments about Eagles fans.

Peters, who wore midnight green for 12 seasons, didn’t hold back when asked for his thoughts on returning to Philadelphia for the first time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He expects a “nasty, vulgar” environment in the same city where he was paraded through the streets as a champion after winning Super Bowl LII. Those dusty avenues that once cheered him are now littered with idiots.

“All I know is that the Philly fans are fucking idiots when it comes to camaraderie and the Cowboys — any team, really,” Peters said via Michael Gehlken of Dallas morning news. “They start throwing stuff at teams. When we played the Vikings [in early 2017], they threw things. I mean they are evil [laugh]. …But they know that.

“They pride themselves on being mean, you know, vulgar. They will scold you. They will throw things. They are proud of that. They know that. To me, Philly fans are the wildest fans out there.”

Harsh. Peters showed some love and appreciation for “my city” when asked to reflect on his time there. However, the 328-pound left tackle ended those comments with another dig.

“It’s just another game for me,” said Peters. “I can go back to where I laid the foundation and won my championship. But it’s a division game. It’s going to be a lively game and like I said, it’s just another game for me.”

Dak Prescott participated in a lightweight throwing session at the end of the Cowboys’ practice Wednesday. He told reporters it was a “solid” performance, but head coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t want to risk it. Dallas will keep Cooper Rush in the pilot’s chair as a backup for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

“I think we’re still in the medical rehab phase,” McCarthy said via NFL Media. “A painter [Prescott] When that phase is over and he’s fully activated, I think that’s when we’ll have our conversation.”

Micah Parsons (Bar) sat out training on Wednesday, although no one seemed concerned he would miss the game. The Cowboys also listed DeMarcus Lawrence (chest), Dalton Schultz (knee) and Jason Peters (chest) as limited participants.

Meanwhile, the Eagles released an estimate of an injury report as they performed a walk-through. It was pretty clean. Rookie cornerback Josh Jobe (shoulder) was DNP, while a number of veterans were listed as limited participants:

The Eagles could have made the decision to draft Micah Parsons in place of DeVonta Smith in the 2021 NFL draft. There’s a good chance he would have been 12th there, negating the need to trade with Dallas and move up. Head coach Nick Sirianni was asked if staying in place and packing Parsons was ever a consideration. He couldn’t remember.

“To say I remember the plan we had when we were about to call him up, I don’t remember. I think I championed DeVonta quite a bit [Smith]. So I thought about it more,” Sirianni said. “But yeah, I just remember how much of a playmaker he is and was and was at Penn State so lots of respect for him. He does the same things he does at Penn State and he does it at a high level in the NFL.
