“Best News Ever,” Tweets Janoris Jenkins After Being Waived by Giants

Kevin Kinkead - December 13, 2019

Interesting week for Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins.

Monday, his team fell to 2-11 after an overtime loss to your Philadelphia Eagles.

Wednesday, he went on Twitter and replied to criticism from a fan by calling that person a “retard,” a post that still exists and has not been deleted:

Jordan Howard…. Still Not Cleared for Contact

Kevin Kinkead - December 13, 2019

Stop me if you’ve heard this before:

Jordan Howard is not yet cleared for contact, according to Doug Pederson, who spoke to the media this morning.

The Birds running back hasn’t played since the Bears game, when he suffered a 4th quarter stinger. He’s now missed four straight games and is in danger of missing a fifth if he can’t go in Landover this weekend.

Alshon Jeffery Officially Done for the Year

Kevin Kinkead - December 12, 2019

It was fun while it lasted:

Davis was a 2017 draft pick who bounced back and forth between the Redskins practice squad and active roster. He missed the 2018 season with a torn LCL and broken leg.

As of Thursday morning, Alshon is now on injured reserve while Nelson Agholor is still not practicing. DeSean Jackson remains on the shelf. That means the available pass catchers for Sunday are:

  • Greg Ward
  • J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
  • Zach Ertz
  • Dallas Goedert
  • Josh Perkins
  • maybe Agholor, maybe not

Should be another barn burner down in Landover this weekend.

On-Brand Gender Reveals for the Discerning Philadelphia Athlete

Coggin Toboggan - December 12, 2019

Carson Wentz revealed the gender of his unborn child in a unique way this past week, as his wife Madison Oberg hucked powder-filled footballs into the air while Wentz and his buddies blasted away with shotguns in the most on-brand reveal of all time.

The happy couple will welcome a girl into the world who will only be able to be soothed asleep to the crack of a shotgun ringing through her ears, which in all honesty won’t be much of a problem considering how much of an outdoorsman Wentz seems to be.

Now, I could make all the obvious jokes about how Nick Foles would have done a better gender reveal, or would have shot the gun more accurately than Wentz, or actually has a Super Bowl ring to pass down to his children that was given to him for more than just standing around on the sidelines, but I won’t do that. It’s a momentous occasion for the Wentz family that doesn’t have to be cheapened by sub-par jokes about firing his shotgun high and outside, just like his swing passes.

It was a creative, unique gender reveal that suited the Wentz family well. They love to hunt, they love to shoot, they love football… it worked. So how could other Philadelphia athletes creatively reveal the genders of their future children? Be them planned, a happy surprise, or a haunting mistake like my mother has so constantly reminded me over the years, the reveals after the jump are perfectly crafted for the athletes in mind.

Comfort Food, With Carson Wentz and Mike Groh

Kevin Kinkead - December 11, 2019

Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh doesn’t typically say anything interesting during his press conferences. It’s usually 12 minutes of coach speak and looking out for his players, which is whatever; he keeps things close to the vest and doesn’t let anything slip. He doesn’t say anything that results in unwanted headlines or negative publicity.

Sometimes there will be a moment where he specifically says he doesn’t want to give too much away, and we got one of those quotes today when he was asked about Carson Wentz’s fourth quarter comeback and how the coaching staff can help get him going:

Jim Schwartz Says Blame Him, Not Ronald Darby, for First New York Touchdown

Kevin Kinkead - December 11, 2019

Ronald Darby took a lot of crap on Monday for missing a tackle on Darius Slayton that resulted in a New York touchdown.

This was in the 2nd quarter, still a scoreless ball game, with the Giants facing a 3rd and 13 from the Eagles’ 35 yard line. The Eagles blitzed, didn’t get home, and Slayton won his 1v1 battle en route to the end zone.

Today defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz took responsibility for that touchdown while delivering a lengthy quote, one that began with him explaining his belief that corners typically get more blame for their mistakes since they are easier to identify than errors made at other positions.

Then he said this:

The Wentz Family Gender Reveal

Kevin Kinkead - December 10, 2019

This is the most on-brand gender reveal I’ve ever seen.

Here’s Carson Wentz and his wife, Madison, finding out whether they are having a boy or a girl by shooting footballs out of the air:
