Drew Smyly quickly turned into a fan favorite when he was with the Tigers. Despite him playing for the Tampa Bay Rays now, many Tigers fans are still quite attached. So it comes as no surprise that Smyly's plea for the Dallas Cowboys to step up hurt some Tigers' fans a bit.

Unfortunately for Smyly, who is an Arkansas native and a lifelong Cowboys fan, his team currently trails 20-7.
UPDATE: After a Cowboys touchdown, Craig Monroe also jumped on the pile.
