Jeffrey Lurie’s Throwing Form Makes Me Nauseous

I’ve been feeling a bit sick lately. Maybe it’s just a cold, perhaps it’s the flu. Maybe it’s the foreboding feeling that comes with realizing the defending Super Bowl champs have looked like a shell of themselves. Just when I recovered from Doug Pederson’s play-call on 4th-and-1 from the goal line, I saw this:

Yes, that’s Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie playing cornhole at a pregame tailgate. My initial reaction? No. Good God, no, Jeffrey. “Can’t argue with the results?” You bet I can. Multiple violations on the play:

  1. Lurie lines up in front of his platform, rather than to the side.
  2. Overhand. Limited arc. Inconsistent motion. I haven’t seen a shot that flat since Dario Saric. Too soon? Andre Miller then.
  3. He took his phone out. Was he going to call someone? Text? Tweet about it?

This was the worst throw of the night, at least until Mark Sanchez entered the game.

  1. Go away Russ. Please, we’re begging you. Go back to your boring irrelevant suburban dad life.

    1. Imo, Wentz can get true criticism starting next season.
      Yes, he’s playing, so if ppl feel like he’s open for criticism I’m not going to knock it.
      Those two ligament tears will be healed by next season, with the brace off, that’s my reasoning

  2. missed 2 easy TD’s to Agoholor. Agoholor is a game breaker, if only Wentz could get some accuracy. He is McNabb minus the deep ball accuracy

  3. I see you took down your ill informed post where you were critical of the ESPN announcing team for their take on DV (which they denounced) because they didn’t have a woman in the booth and because they didn’t talk about it for 15 minutes. Then, you hid behind the “I am not a journalist” take because it a column. News Flash – journalists write columns. You have detailed knowledge on sports, especially basketball which I greatly appreciate. However, this was your worst moment by far. A lazy, cheap take that others in the media (journalists and whatever you think you are) use against Philly and our reputation in a similar manner. Also, it wasn’t irreverent. You tried that excuse as well.
