Lane Johnson Followed Up On His Snake Tweet at Donovan McNabb Last Night

BWanksCB - April 22, 2019

Dropping the snake emoji on Twitter would have been enough for Lane Johnson to beat Donovan McNabb at the point of attack, but Johnson then jumped on 94WIP with Paul Jolovitz last night to fully pancake the Eagles former franchise quarterback. Johnson, if you haven’t heard, is upset over what he perceives to be McNabb’s unnecessary criticism of Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, which includes this assessment:

I think personally if he can’t get out of the second round in the next two, maybe three years. Really two years to be honest with you, if they can’t get out of the second round, they should look to possibly draft another quarterback because you just don’t know about his durability.

You can read Johnson’s extended response here, but this is the gist, courtesy of WIP’s Eliot Shorr Parks:

This is what I meant — every training camp we have all of these ex-players come and shake our hands, wish us good luck. Then, they just go out and just talk hate. I feel there is a lot of envy, jealously, and I see a lot of fakery. It isn’t just me — a lot of other teammates see it too. You would think the best quarterback in franchise history would try to build up a young man that looks up to him instead of always criticizing him, critiquing him and wishing he would fail so he could be the missing link and feel better himself.

Typically, I’d brush a story like this aside. After all, McNabb isn’t employed by the Eagles and he’s not required to wave pom-poms for his former team. Plus, why should Lane Johnson, or anyone, really, care about what McNabb has to say at this point?

BUT.

This isn’t the first time an obviously bitter McNabb has made a comment that has a “Hey, everyone. I used to matter!” vibe about it, and this does feel driven by what seems like some periodic need of his to be part of the Philly sports news cycle and have people pay attention to him, as we can see by his response to Johnson’s radio spot:

An awkward misfire? So on-brand.

Let’s Improve Ourselves in 2019, Philadelphia

Coggin Toboggan - January 4, 2019

Ahhh it’s a New Year in Philadelphia. The sky is brighter. The people are friendlier. The puke stench from New Year’s Eve is finally dissipating from the 8th and Market PATCO stop, but the urine funk is still holding strong. It’s 2019. It’s a new year with new horizons and new opportunities to better ourselves and our city.

This is the year, Philadelphia. Can you feel it? This is the year we pull ourselves up from this stink hole and really make a difference. I’m not saying this city isn’t already great, or its denizens pitch perfect, but we can all stand to improve and better our lives for the benefit of us and the loved ones we hold so dear.

Even the best of us can improve. Take the venerable John Middleton, for instance. Maybe this year he can resolve to stop saying stupid shit before the opening of free agency that gets everyone’s hopes up for the signing of Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, while it becomes increasingly obvious that neither of them want to play here. Maybe don’t show your hand before the chips are pushed into the pot, John? And hell, maybe have the doors ready and open to Citizens Bank Park when your #1 target actually deems you worthy of a visit and not leave him and his pissed off wife outside in the cold to be accosted by South Philly electricians, right? What do I know, I’m just spit balling here.

Or hey, even Carson Wentz should have a resolution. He has room for improvement, right? Maybe in 2019 he can resolve to stop getting hurt and force us into this never ending quagmire of a discussion on whether he or Nick Foles is the future of the Eagles franchise. I’ve fucking had it. Carson, either get healthy and take this city by the balls or stay hurt and let Foles and his massive genitalia lead us to the promised land. Mother of God.

But it’s time to look at ourselves in this city, starting first at this site. What can we do better, as people and as fans? What are our resolutions for a better 2019 at Crossing Broad?

The Eagles Were Open-Hand Slapped in the Face

Coggin Toboggan - November 19, 2018

When it can be argued that Alex Smith had a less painful weekend than the Philadelphia Eagles, you know things didn’t go to well for the Birds on Sunday afternoon.

We all knew it had the potential to be bad, but this bad? A 48-7 massacre of the Super Bowl winners was the worst defeat in the history of the NFL for a defending champion.

The Eagles weren’t so much punched in the mouth yesterday as they were open-hand slapped across the face. A punch would have been more dignified. A punch would have left this team snoring on the ground with their eyes rolled up into the back of their head, oblivious to the horrors around them.

The Saints did not allow them such mercy. The Saints reared back and slapped the Eagles across the face as hard as they could. They weren’t allowed the dignity of being knocked out, they were left to whimper and sob softly to themselves as snot and tears drained from their orifices, a sad slick of failure smeared into their stinging cheeks as they pathetically looked up at the Saints looming over them.

Report: Nick Foles to Start Week 1

Chris Jastrzembski - September 1, 2018

Per Ian Rapoport:

It makes the most sense to be patient with your franchise quarterback. Why rush him and risk getting him injured again, perhaps even worse? He’s the future of the franchise.

He’s apparently very close to returning, which is a good sign.

What the “verge of starting” is I don’t know. But my gut thinks either Week 2 against Tampa Bay or Week 3 against Indianapolis.

Getting in Those Honeymoon Workouts

Kevin Kinkead - July 26, 2018

Ah yes, Eagles training camp began today. We didn’t forget about it.

I’ll write up some notes momentarily, but the most important thing to happen was someone (I think Martin Frank) asking Carson Wentz what kind of rehab he was able to do during his recent honeymoon:

“I got some workouts in… in the fitness center.”

Get your mind out of the gutter you disgusting people.

I also appreciated this guy scaling the fence on the far side of NovaCare:

Good for him.

Carson Wentz Looks Pretty Good…

Kevin Kinkead - May 22, 2018

The Birds are practicing indoors today.

Biggest takeaway from the start of OTAs? It’s gotta be Carson Wentz, who is doing a lot of drills:

Nice.

Lemme get out the eye emoji:

More Carson:
