Tim Jernigan is Headed to Houston

Kevin Kinkead - April 1, 2020

Per Ian Rapoport, via the agent:

Injuries derailed what could have been a longer and more productive Eagles career, but Timmy was really good in 2017 and his acquisition will go down as one of the best moves Howie Roseman ever pulled off.

Adam Schefter Goes on Contradictory and Hyperbolic NFL Rant

Kevin Kinkead - April 1, 2020

Adam Schefter went on a brief, but tasty NFL rant last night on ESPN with Scott Van Pelt.

The crux of the beef here is that he doesn’t think the league is doing the right thing by attempting to proceed with business as usual in the middle of a global pandemic.

Volume up:

NFL Owners Approve Expanded Playoff Format

Kevin Kinkead - March 31, 2020

The NFL playoff system was not broken and did not need fixing. It certainly did not need expansion, but we’re gonna get it anyway, via a 14-team bracket that will be implemented this season:

Tom Pelissero says wild card weekend will include three games on Saturday and three games on Sunday, which I guess is pretty cool. More football is always a good thing, I guess my gripe is that it felt like the 12-team bracket was close to perfect already and that this is just a way for owners to put more money in their pocket.

Whatever, let’s do a short exercise –

Seems Like Yannick Ngakoue Really Wants to be a Philadelphia Eagle

Kevin Kinkead - March 31, 2020

Yannick Ngakoue turned 25 today.

As such, his Instagram is a hodgepodge of birthday-related stories, but if you let the thing autoplay you’ll come across a photo of Brian Dawkins in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform.

This would seem to be a continuation of the not-so-cryptic bread crumb placement that began last week, with the Jaguars’ stud defensive end making it very obvious that he wants out of Duuuuuuval.

Earlier this morning he made that crystal clear when responding to a report from Mike Garafolo:

Gannett Employees Required to Take Three Weeks of Unpaid Time Off

Kevin Kinkead - March 31, 2020

Back in August, Gannett and GateHouse finalized merger plans, turning the two largest newspaper chains in the United States into one big print media amalgam.

Locally, that meant that the Courier-Post, Delaware News Journal, Bucks County Courier Times, Burlington County Times, and Doylestown Intelligencer would now operate under the same ownership group.

Similar to Sports Illustrated and other media outlets crunched during a global pandemic, Gannett is implementing furloughs in this fashion:

Tra Thomas Says He’s Been Let Go by 97.5 the Fanatic

Kevin Kinkead - March 31, 2020

His words:

I guess this shouldn’t surprise anybody, unfortunately. Last week we reported that Beasley Media Group would be implementing wage cuts and hourly reductions as a response to the COVID-19 crisis, which would affect employees at 97.5 the Fanatic, 93.3 WMMR, and the five other radio stations the company owns in Philadelphia.

Tra had been co-hosting the morning show alongside Marc Farzetta, Bob Cooney, Jamie Lynch, and Sam Wilson since late 2018, when Anthony Gargano was moved to middays and Harry Mayes decided to leave the company. Thomas is a three-time Pro Bowler who played ten seasons for the Eagles, protecting Donovan McNabb’s blind side for a full decade before signing with the Jags as a free agent.

He retired as a Bird.
