Did Eagles Rookie RB Bryce Brown Never Play Tecmo Super Bowl?

Did Eagles Rookie RB Bryce Brown Never Play Tecmo Super Bowl?

Bryce Brown is 21 years old which means he probably grew up playing some version of the ubiquitous Madden football video game. But does the younger generation who grew up playing Madden football not know the glory of Tecmo Super Bowl?

Brown was told of a great compliment thrown his way by stud teammate LeSean McCoy, but apparently Brown never played Tecmo Super Bowl or collected Score baseball cards in 1990, which I guess is the year before he was born.

From Philly Mag:

McCoy had high praise for Brown, saying the rookie reminded him of Bo Jackson.

The reference seemed lost on the 21-year old.

“I guess that’s a compliment, right?” he said.

As Clay Davis would say, shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

Anyway, here's the high praise Shady bestowed on Brown, from CSN:

“He reminds me of Bo Jackson the way he runs,” McCoy said after
practice. “Seriously. He’s a big kid, he’s very fast, he’s big and
strong, more of a straight-line runner. We need that. We need that kind
of speed and vision.”

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

Eagles fans, get Malcolm Jenkins that petition on Pete Morelli

The online petition to ban Pete Morelli from officiating Eagles games is rapidly gaining signatures.

Count Malcolm Jenkins for one.

"I would definitely sign that petition if it came across my desk," Jenkins said with a laugh to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark on Monday at the safety's Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event.

The Eagles beat the Panthers, 28-23, last Thursday night despite a significant discrepancy in penalty yards. It was a game officiated by Morelli's crew — and you can see why that's notable by clicking right here.

"We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls," Jenkins said after the game. "For us, adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and keep playing, and hunker down. We continue to play aggressively, that is the biggest thing. We don’t want that to take away our aggression, or our ability to make plays. So we just go to the next play."

What about the next signature? 

Eagles fans just need to get that petition to Jenkins' desk.
