Future SportsCenter host Dianna Marie Russini is reporting that DeSean Jaccson missed the start of Redskins OTAs today. They are, of course, optional, but this is the second year in a row Jaccson has missed the start. Last year, in April, he posted an Instagram – #MYLYFE PRIVATE VILLA [pineapple and palm tree emoticons] – while most of the other guys on his team were, you know, working. So you’d think this year he’d at least stay off the social medias until he shows up [he told 106.7 The Fan in D.C. last week that he was planning on attending]… but nope. As of two days, he was still on the water:
Eyyyy cuh Ill get therr wen i get therr !! Dis boat aint gon fly homie OR IS IT !! HA HA !! HERR MEH !!
Evan Mathis didn’t show up for the Eagles, either. But he’s in the midst of a contract-what-the-fuck-are-you-going-to-do-with-me? situation. DeSean is not. At least, not yet.27 Comments
Top 5 parenting move of all-time right here.
That’s son of Brian, wearing one of the 12 BIG BALLS CHIP SHIRTS his dad ordered last week. Brian owns 1,000 Degrees Pizzeria, a chain of pizzerias in New Jersey (new locations opening in Deptford, Marlton and Cherry Hill this summer) which cooks pizzas at – you guessed it – 1,000 degrees, or degreez, according to America’s great poet, Juvenile:
So that answers the question about how you get free advertising: buy 12 t-shirts from the Crossing Broad Store.34 Comments
Kind of a slow day, so why not close the blinds, make sure your boss isn’t gonna walk by, put your headphones on, and watch this video of the Eagles’ 11 return TDs from last year. It’s almost the weekend. You deserve it. Just keep your hands above the desk. Or don’t. Who cares.16 Comments
Ew. There’s this acid creeping up in my throat. It tastes like… yep, it’s vomit. #willprobablybesellingbradfordtshirtsin6months
The Sam Bradford era. Welcome to it!
UPDATE: Holy shit– Bradford looks even worse on Snapchat:
He’s like that guy across the street from you who drinks a lot. He’s not fat by any stretch, but he’s not particularly athletic either, and all the years of drinking have given him a weird little pot belly. That’s what Bradford looks like. This is your quarterback. Our quarterback.19 Comments
The NFL approved portions of proposals from the competition committee, the Patriots, and Eagles that will have extra points getting snapped from the 15-yard line and will give the defense the ability to return a failed two-point try for two points of their own.
The Patriots, who could probably get just about anything passed at the moment given Roger Goodell’s presumed desired to placate Robert Kraft, had proposed snapping from the 15 but without the defense’s ability to score. The Eagles and competition committee had also reportedly proposed snapping from the 15 and the two-point return, but one wrinkle they added is what you might call the Tebow Corollary– snapping from the one on two-point conversions. Alas. That one was stopped on the goal line.
What does this all mean? Well, I’d imagine a few painful 21-20 losses for a couple of teams. Moving the ball back will decrease percentages by at least a few points, leading more coaches to do the math about trying two-point conversions, especially in bad weather. Let’s just be thankful that Alex Henery – who was an inexplicable 1-5 last year with the Lions – is no longer around.
UPDATE: What a misleading headline here from Business Insider:
Wrong. They cite an expected ~97% extra point rate (based on 2014 field goals with the line of scrimmage from the 14-16). That’s still high and will usually lead risk-adverse coaches (not our very own big-balled marvel) to play it safe and go for one, not two – which over time would probably net just as many points – but it’s still over two points lower than the 99.6% rate on extra points the league had been experiencing. So it might not make a difference from a play-call standpoint, but there will absolutely be at least a few additional quirky scores thanks to the slightly decreased percentages.9 Comments
Today in Jason Kelce, Everyman, we find the bearded wonder taking in the St. Denis fair in Havertown, which might be the most everyman thing a human in the Philadelphia area could do, just short of picking up a hoagie at Wawa on their way to a birthday party at Pica’s.
Meanwhile, for contrast, the last time we heard from LeSean McCoy he was hopping a private jet to Vegas to eat hot wings out of the cleavages of a harem of wannabe socialites:
Side note: I’m passing no judgment here. If I had LeSean McCoy’s money (or Kelce’s, for that matter), I’d be encircled by so many rings of handlers and PR consultants that my pictures from the tarmac wouldn’t be Gram’d out until I was safely on final to my private island. Which I suppose is the sort of temptation that makes Kelce’s normality all the more impressive.25 Comments
