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:
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) December 3, 2018
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:
- Lurie lines up in front of his platform, rather than to the side.
- Overhand. Limited arc. Inconsistent motion. I haven’t seen a shot that flat since Dario Saric. Too soon? Andre Miller then.
- 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.
