Trolling The Nation: “Jerry Jones freaking trolled us!” - How rival fans reacted to Cowboys Picking CeeDee Lamb

New, comments

Relive and savor the first round of the draft as you read what other fans had to say as they watched CeeDee Lamb taken by the Cowboys.

On April 23, 2020, at 10:20 PM EDT, the Dallas Cowboys selected wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the 17th pick of the 2020 NFL draft.

Not everybody was happy about that, especially among rival fans.

Before we start preparing for more draft action tonight, here’s your chance to relive that moment and the lead up to it through the comments of other SB Nation readers as they react to the pick. The quotes are taken from each teams’ respective SB Nation site, and are only edited for language.

For your pleasure, the reactions are split into two parts. Consider the first part the appetizer, and the second part the main dish where you can revel - and I mean really, truly, revel - in one particular team’s misery on draft night.

Enjoy.

Packers Barf. Hoping they go Chiasson just so I don’t have to stomach Dak getting another weapon.

Eagles Unless we are planning to pick up the best cornerback available, we're screwed. Dallas is going to eat our defense up.
Posted by RealShowlow on Apr 23, 2020 | 10:31 PM
Eagles This is the type to run Howie out of town. You could have easily traded up 5 spots (#21 and more than likely a 3rd or 4th) and instead let your nemesis draft your "love" of the draft. Makes Howie look like he’s incapable anymore. This is the worst start to a draft that I can remember.
Posted by Smkoking on Apr 23, 2020 | 10:35 PM
Eagles Once again, Howie gets outflanked. When Lamb fell, he wasn’t prepared to trade with Atlanta who could have gotten the same guy at 21 they got at 16. I might be able to live with this if it wasn’t Dallas that took him.
Posted by Yardbird2 on Apr 23, 2020 | 10:36 PM
Eagles Completely inexcusable. A freaking STUD WR falls to 16 and you let him go to Dallas. I don’t understand how a deal with Atlanta is not made at that point. Lamb is gonna destroy whatever bush league CB2 we line up against him. I’m sick to my stomach.
