Pacman Doubts Eagles

Adam "Pacman" Jones begins Dallas week with an observation.

Pacman Doubts Eagles

It doesn't usually take much to get this week started, this Eagles-Cowboys week. Thankfully, Adam "Pacman" Jones, a newcomer to the festivities, has gotten into the spirit.

The Dallas Morning News, on its website, asked Jones -- a defensive back -- about the trio of 100-yard receivers the Eagles unfurled in their opening-game demolition of the St. Louis Rams.

And, well, quoth the Pacman: "They played the Rams, dude."

The fact that we are all kind of thinking the same thing does not matter. And just because it might be true does not mean that Jones is allowed to say it. Truth is not a defense during Eagles-Cowboys week. Does he not realize that into which he has just stepped?

Welcome, Pacman.

Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest.
