Lane Johnson Levels Pro Football Focus

JoyOnBroad - June 18, 2018

Lane Johnson on Sunday night tweet what could be best described as a multi-faceted, passive-aggressive swipe at Pro Football Focus. Johnson is one of a few NFL players to have criticized the statistics site. While he ranked as PFF’s #6 overall tackle for the 2017 season, he seemed skeptical of the service and, oddly enough, their lead analyst Sam Monson’s process for making ribs:

Seems innocuous, right? Enter Lane, who didn’t reply, retweet, or quote tweet Monson.

Eventually Johnson deleted the tweet. Monson’s response?

For what it’s worth, I’ve found PFF to be a useful tool, though it’s not the be-all-end-all for football stats. Also, while there’s nothing wrong with baking your ribs, you had better sear them for a nice caramelization prior to serving.

Buying An Eagles Super Bowl Ring Is Completely Impractical But I Kind Of Want One Anyway

BWanksCB - June 15, 2018

Some questions this morning after the Eagles received their Super Bowl rings last night. Did they completely crush the design? Yes. Do I kind of want one? Also yes.

The 127 glorious diamonds that represent the combined numbers of Corey Clement, Trey Burton, and Nick Foles–the three players who touched the ball on the Philly Special–are absolutely magnificent. The engraved underdog mask? It speaks to me. The detail. The gaudiness. The PIZZAZZ!

Some more questions.

Did I do anything in any way, shape, or form to earn this ring? No. Do I have $11,127 to spend on a ring that I did absolutely nothing in any way, shape, or form to earn? Absolutely not. If I had the money, would it make me an asshole if I bought one? Not any more of one than I already am.

If you are very much unlike me and have the ability to flush what essentially amounts to two months of my total gross income, while also sharing my total lack of hesitation about purchasing something so completely impractical, you can click this link to customize and buy one of a very limited number of Eagles Super Bowl rings.

I know someone who wants one:

What Is, The Eagles Are Super Bowl Champions

BWanksCB - June 12, 2018

I don’t watch Jeopardy! because it’s a depressing reminder that my knowledge base is completely one-dimensional and never came remotely close to evolving the way I thought it would when I was a kid. Quite literally, I can watch an entire episode as contestants tear through the board without personally knowing a single question (or is it answer?). I’m not even good at bar quizzo games. I have a degree in English literature and whenever something about books come up I just shrug my shoulders as my friends stare in disbelief at my fundamental lack of knowledge about…anything. Thanks, SparkNotes.

But good news. I would have nailed one question last night:

Suck it, Trebek.

Brandon Graham Apparently Stripped Tom Brady on a Bum Hammy

Kevin Kinkead - June 7, 2018

Oh yeah, the Eagles practiced today.

Apparently Brandon Graham is even more of a beast than originally thought:

Not sure if you saw the play, but Graham’s strip sack of Tom Brady basically won the Super Bowl for the Eagles.

Here’s the play, just in case you didn’t see it:

Time’s yours.

Julian Edelman Is Suspended Four Games For Using PEDs

Kyle Scott - June 7, 2018

The Eagles killed the Patriots.

Julian Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance policy. He is appealing the decision. This comes out just as Tom Brady returns to official team workouts.

I can’t believe the Patriots cheated.

Fun wrinkle: Edelman uses Tom Brady’s health guru, Alex Guerrero, whom he called “Mr. Miyagi” in April:

“There’s always going to be those types of things,” Edelman said of Guerrero last November. “If it helps you, then it helps you and Tom [Brady] is a living proof of how that has helped his career. I am a huge advocate of it. I feel like it helps me with a lot of my stuff and I like consulting with Alex and those guys over there because I’ve seen through a lot of the rehabs that they have done and that it’s been unbelievable.”

Wax on, wax off, wax… right the fuck in your buttock with this needle. I’m speculating on how that went down.
