Last night after most of you likely fell asleep from an overabundance of not caring about the Eagles, Damaris Johnson returned a punt 98 yards, breaking an Eagles record held by Vai Sikahema, who had an 87-yard return in 1992

Sikahema (I think jokinginly) tweeted about it:

Poor guy. No, not because his record was broken… but because he had to endure a seemingly unnecessary chiding from Howard Eskin:

This town, sometimes.

Meanwhile, you would never know the Eagles are 3-9 and the most hated team in the history of Philadelphia sports by looking at the game notes on their website. The headlines: The Bryce is Right (no mention of his fumbles), Return to Sender (about Johnson's return), The Book on the Rook (about how great Nick Foles has been), King Henery (obvs), Offensive Quick Hits (somehow, they found positive stats about Jeremy Maclin), Good Halftime Adjustments (they were leading at halftime and then after the game they weren't), Defensive Nuggets… which we'll let you read:

The Eagles are the only team in the NFL that has not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season … DE Brandon Graham registered a sack and a half, marking his first multi-sack game … DE Trent Cole added a half sack and now has 70.0 for his career. 

Glass half full.

  1. vai sikahema is the man. grew up with him and his kids. nicest man alive and knows his football. shame on eskin for coming at vai. eskin should get the hell out of this city. no one likes his stupid and gay ways.

  2. “The Eagles are the only team in the NFL that has not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season”
    Considering how porous the pass defense is, I’m surprised they’ve even allowed a 50-yard rusher this season. Why bother running the ball when there’s not a defensive back within 10 yards of your receivers?

  3. interned at NBC10 while in college, Vai is the genuine article, a great caring guy. Howard Eskin is a POS and everyone knows

  4. eskins whole gimmick is to say controversial shit and get people to listen/watch to sell advertising. its on par with the westboro catholic church.
    cant believe some of you guys feed into his bullshit.

  5. this “garbage time td” and the awful 2 point conversion won me part of my 33 pool…
    so it was the best return in eagles history to me, suck it vai

  7. I’m rather disappointed in Vai who I thought knew better than to get into a pissing match with a troll like Eskin.

  8. Sad but true: Howard Eskin has actually made legal arrangements to be buried at sea because he believes people will search out and desecrate his grave
