Sam Bradford is Definitely Not Emoji Healthy According to Jimmy Kempski

kempski

With word breaking that Sam Bradford isn’t going to play in Sunday’s pre-season opener, two schools of thought have popped up on Twitter. The first is the no harm no foul idea: That sitting Bradford for whatever reason isn’t a big deal. He’s probably healthy and maybe just not ready to face a pass rush. Either way, it’s fine, because it’s a long season and it’s only the first game in which he’d probably only play a quarter anyway.

The other thought is that it’s because Bradford is definitely not healthy, and that’s a bigger concern. Jimmy Kempski is of the latter school, saying on Twitter that there’s no way Bradford is “100%” in emoji form. In his post for Philly Voice, Kempski expounded on this:

In the past, the projected starting quarterback has played the first preseason game under Chip Kelly. Furthermore, when you have a new quarterback in your offense, you typically want to see him in game action as soon as possible. It’s not much of a leap to come to the conclusion that the Eagles have some level of worry about Bradford’s readiness to play in live game action.

Kelly did commit to Bradford playing against the Ravens in the second preseason game on August 22nd, which will give Bradford more time to be ready to play. We’ll see.

Kempski points to an earlier post that said Bradford “has barely moved during training camp.” Eliot Shorr-Parks said that Bradford, to him, has looked 100% even when he’s running. Bradford himself said it has “nothing to do with the knee,” and it was probably Chip’s plan “from the beginning.” We’re likely not going to know what the whole deal is until we’re getting ready for pre-season week two. It’s not something that’s on Chip’s mind – as obvious by this decision – but it doesn’t inspire any kind of confidence.

  1. 4 seconds ago Jimmy Kempski was commenting on Bleeding Green or Philly.com or something and now he’s some kind of expert. His shtick is to draw stick figures and troll Giants/Cowboys fans.

    The dude is a complete hack. What he says counts as much as Screamin’ A.

  2. Seriously thank you Josh Innes for talking over that Jabba the hut looking Hollis Thomas.

    I can’t think of a show where Hollis Thomas wasn’t giggling uncontrollably, every 20 seconds until today.

  3. Every once in a while he comes out with a crazy take on a player because its the only way he can get page views. That or some stupid stick figure drawing. He’s been doing this for a couple years and he has no eye for it. Kempski is the worst beat writer in Philadelphia followed closely by ESP. Go draw some stick figures because you are a loser.

    1. YES this, ESP is just a sensationalist that has zero sports acumen. The guy has no idea what he’s looking at while observing a football practice. I love how every beat reporter tweets something, then 2 min later ESP tweets the exact opposite, just another hack trying to be the ultimate contrarian.

      Kempski’s biggest score was the Jackson cut, which imo you would have to of been brain-dead to not see coming, which most of the beat writers are. I’ve been to two Eagles practices and the guy runs fine, and he moves in the pocket very well, Kempski must be drawing stick figures or adding up the O-linemen’s age to determine if they will be any good. Just take a look at Kempski…..guy is a jerkoff of the highest order

      1. He deserves credit for the Jackson scoop. But when Jimmy gets fixated on a point, he WILL NOT LET IT GO. He must have restated his utter disbelief that the Eagles didn’t draft a Guard about thirty times this spring.

        And of course Bradford isn’t 100% yet. Does Kempski seriously expect him to be at this point in his recovery???? He doesn’t seem to grasp the different between “Full go” and “100%”.

  4. C’Mon Iggles Fans, tell me that fairy tale again about how you CLEARLY won the Shady McCoy for Kiko Alonso trade and the foles for Bradford trade?!?!? Lol lmao

    1. Never seen anyone lol and then lmao right after. I don’t know what makes you a bigger loser: being a cowboys fan from this area, living in Croydon, or promoting the fact that you’re a cowboy’s fan that lives in Croydon. Kill yourself fgt.

  5. Sssssorry boysssss philly is a baseball town!

    Nobody givessss a crap about football here!!!

    Baseball is wayyyyy better!!!

    ????????????

  6. If you’ve ever been to an Eagles practice, reporters are seldom watching practice, more or less just jerking each other, or taking advantage of the free water ice.

    Also one thing that always has bothered me – just because you cover the Eagles beat does not make you an entitled football analyst, always makes me laugh when these dip shits try to act like they could come up with a bullet proof game plan.

  7. Why the denial on these boards? We knew that. Guy is glass. Why put him in harms way until absolutely necessary? You will see him for a quarter in game 3.

  8. Jimmy Clicksi as I call him is the only douche bag saying Sam is “fragile” philly media radio and print is a joke. They always look for negative slant. I’m black and tied of Mike Miss “white guilt” act. I’m like shut the hell up and just join the NAACP

    1. Why not bring up snowballs and Santa Claus while your at it. A few knuckleheads do something dumb and everyone gets lumped in. Real lazy argument.

      At least we can fill our stadium with at least 80% eagles fans. Most Cowboy’s home games almost seem like road games because they have no real fan base. Just a bunch of phony losers spread across the country who are also Yankees fans, Duke fans, Lakers fans, Alabama fans, etc. Most pathetic fan base.

      Never met 1 cowboys fan from this area who wasn’t brain damaged.

        1. Then you’re the lowlife for trolling another team’s blog. That’s the epitome of being a loser. Good show.

  9. The only thing wrong with Sam ia that his contratct signing hand seems to be having spasms as soon as he takes the one year chump change deal the team is offering he will be allowed on the field in actual games with the boys.

    1. Nothing on the Eagles game?

      I just posted a few new selfies this afternoon everyone. Please come check them out and let me know how hot you think I am!!

      1. She’s up there with k@cie on the attention wh0ring factor .
        Great weekend on here btw

  10. Absolutely no mention of the eagles game preseason or not is effing lazy Kyle.

  11. Yo brother Jim and brother Kyle, where you guys at?

    Seriously brother Kyle, you could’ve at least posted something about the Eagles game.

    Yeah I know brother Jim and brother Kyle it’s only the pre-season, but slow money is better than no money.

    Well brother Jim and brother Kyle, I guess I’ll check back tomorrow, so we can do what we do best and that’s talk sports.

  12. Good thing there’s nothing going on in Philly sports this weekend, amirite Kyle?

  13. wow what a weekend on this site. I come in work and see the same thing posted when I left work Friday. smdh

    what do you pay Jim for??

  14. I can understand not having a post up last night for the game. However, how can neither of posted something by this morning. Both of you still hungover from jamming out to Maroon 5 on the beach yesterday?
