I know; everybody has moved on from the Jadeveon Clowney/Carson Wentz incident.
The hit was late, Clowney led with his helmet, and Carson was tripped up before contact. Unfortunate things happen in football games.
We didn’t hear about the play from Howie Roseman, however, and the Eagles’ general manager offered his take this morning on 94 WIP, which I have deemed relevant and worthy of a post:
“We thought that was a foul. We’re sick to our stomach about the way the season ended for our team, for Carson in particular, but we’re not in a position to lose draft picks, dude. I can’t do that. I can’t do that. So you’re gonna get me in a situation where I’m gonna say something and I’m gonna lose draft picks, we’re gonna lose money, we’re gonna get fined. I can’t do that. That doesn’t make sense either because it doesn’t put us back in time. I don’t have that Back to the Future time machine that I can go back and change it. I’m sick about it. Doug (Pederson) is sick about it. Jeffrey (Lurie) is sick about it. Our whole organization is sick about it. We’re there, we have a home playoff game, eight plays in. Come on, you know that. There’s no disconnect. We’re sick about it. It should have been a foul.”
Howie also talked about some other stuff, which you can listen to below:
