The Eagles Can’t Even Tank Successfully

Before we begin, I sincerely apologize for posting about the Philadelphia Eagles. I despise the players, ownership, and most of the fans, but when I saw this story, I had to post it the second I stopped guffawing.

A gaggle of sports commentators and NFL players are claiming the Eagles “tanked” their final game to screw the New York Giants and give Washington the NFC East title.

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth didn’t hold back their frustration at Eagles coach Doug Pederson’s decision to bench Jalen Hurts for Nate Sudfeld. The quarterback move by Pederson harpooned any chance the Eagles had of rallying against Washington in the 20-14 defeat, handing the NFC East to their rival.

Giants players agreed with several voicing their anger on Twitter as they watched their NFC East chances slip away after beating the Cowboys earlier on Sunday.

I’ve seen Hurts play at Oklahoma; the guy is an amazing talent. Why any competent coach would remove Hurts for Nate Freakin’ Sudfeld is beyond my comprehension.

Hurts, the explosive rookie, had only completed 7 of 20 passes through three quarters, but had rushed for two touchdowns. Sudfeld had not played in a game since 2018 and had attempted 20 passes in his four-year career prior to Sunday.

Sudfeld proceeded to throw an interception on his first possession and then failed to handle a low snap on the next one, which Chase Young promptly recovered for Washington.

Pederson couldn’t put in Crybaby Carson Wentz because he chose to be “inactive.” That said, even if Hurts is having an awful game, you don’t switch him for a guy who Julia could outthrow.

Worse still, why the f**k would the Eagles throw the final game of the season when they should have been doing so since December? No one throws a game when they’re already in a bad draft position. I swear to God, this is the worst sports organization on the planet. Hopefully it’ll stay that way. 🙂

UPDATE: Apparently, some Eagles players also had to be restrained from going after their coach.

  1. Makes it perfect.
    Just in case you had any misconception that any pro athlete in this era has any integrity at all.

    I bet Brady is happy about it though.
    He probably still has nightmares about playing the Giants in the playoffs.
    Especially 18-D’oh.

  2. Anything that makes the NFL look bad makes me feel good. You could call the Eagles the RINO’s of the NFL. Sore losers that want to make others look bad. They apparently were never taught anything about sportsmanship as children. There’s still time though, before they all reach puberty.
