In last week’s shutout of the Giants, Darren Sproles suffered an MCL strain when he was tackled by Markus Kuhn, who then proceeded to pull him over by his neck while laying on Sproles’ leg. A classic WWE maneuver, it’s basically an inverted Crippler Crossface. Injuries happen in the NFL, but this one was undeniably caused by after the play extracurriculars, and Nick Foles did not like that at all. As you can see in the Instagram video above, via at Bleeding Green Nation, Foles went to the referee to ask why the hell they let that happen. Transcript below for those who can’t watch the video:
Nick Foles: You can’t bend a dude backwards.
Official: We blew the whistles, man.
Foles: Yeah, well call something on him! You can’t bend a guy backwards and break his leg. You can’t bend a guy backwards.
Official: I know that, Nick. I know that.
Foles: This guy is a special dude right here.
Official: I know, I know.
Foles: You know [Markus Kuhn] knew that. That pisses me off! That’s my teammate!
You always like to see anyone on the team stick up for his teammates, and it’s good to see Foles get a little animated. Plus, the way he called Sproles a “special dude” makes me think he really likes him, as a person, and that’s nice.
And while we’re here talking about the good people at Bleeding Green Nation, we’re very excited to announce that they are joining us at the Liberty Broadcast Co., where we will be hosting their future podcasts.
