A drunken Eagles fan is accused of punching a mounted Philadelphia police officer’s horse before Saturday’s Falcons-Eagles game, Philly.com reported Tuesday.
The fan — Taylor Hendricks, 22, of Lehigh County, north of Philadelphia — is due in court later this month, facing a variety of charges stemming from his alleged assault on the animal.
In other words, we know which team avaricious brokers will be rooting for Sunday in Philadelphia.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin went through with the ceremony of a season-ending press conference Tuesday, an exercise almost no one involved expected would occur so soon. He hadn’t much to say, save for some rose petals tossed toward the path of retiring assistant coach Richard Mann.
It might have been a function of timing, but no one present asked Tomlin about the Pro Football Talk report that some of the franchise’s limited partners were planning to press team president Art Rooney II to remove him as coach. His handling of that question might have been worth the 22 minutes invested in listening to Tomlin speak on this day.
I kind of reference it to a pitcher, Bortles said. You don’t have a fastball. You don’t have a curveball. You’ve got to find another pitch to land to be successful and get guys out.
That’s kind of the same thing at quarterback. Whatever the situation is, if you’re not able to do your number one option, turn to Option B to help this offense move the ball and put up points.
Bortles had never rushed for as many yards nor logged as many carries in his previous 62 career starts.
Oh man, Blake was incredible, Jaguars defensive end Calais Cambell said of the scrambling. Usually, I like my quarterback to slide and not get hit. But in the playoffs, he went there and made some big-time plays picking up first downs time and time again.
I take my hat off to him. I was very impressed.
Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman must have a big game to help the Falcons control the ball and clock, limiting the opportunities for the Rams’ explosive, quick-strike offense. Look for Wade Phillips to scheme to stop the run first, turning this into a passing duel between Ryan and Jared Goff.
He had no desire to make an outlandish purchase after he was drafted, because there was nothing he wanted. “I got my signing bonus and I put that s— in the bank and I went and got some motherf—ing wings,” he says. That is Kamara.
