Chris Long apologizes to fans, blames Mountain Dew

Chris Long had a strong game in the Eagles’ ugly 19-10 win over the Raiders Christmas night.

The 10-year veteran had a strip sack and racked up four quarterback hits on Oakland’s Derek Carr.

Speaking of the strip sack …

After Long blew past RT Marshall Newhouse and knocked the ball out of Carr’s hands, he proceeded to celebrate and run toward the Eagles’ sideline. Meanwhile, the ball – which was very much live – was there for the taking.

Oops.

Long, who came to the Eagles after a Super Bowl season in New England, has been impactful on and off the field. He’s recorded five sacks, his most since 2013. He’s also donated his entire season’s salary and been a model teammate.

Considering how good of a dude Long is and how much Twitter gold he’s provided this season, let’s just give him a pass, Eagles fans.

This is ... this is just embarrassing.

Maybe we'd be better off with Joe Lunchpail from the 700 level running Washington.

And Tony Williams should know better as he represents parts of South and West Philadelphia in his senate district.

We can probably give the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, a pass? Maybe? 

I don't know. This is just bad form.

This video from KYW's Mike DeNardo comes from an opening of a grocery store in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia. The politicos were trying to show some team spirit with the Eagles hosting the Vikings this week in the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, that game goes much better than this horrific chant attempt.

Be prepared.

That’s the Boy Scout's motto, but it’s also the motto for the Philadelphia Police Department heading into this weekend’s NFC Championship Game at the Linc between the Eagles and Vikings.

Win or lose, there’s going to be a big reaction from fans once the game goes final and one of the locations the police expect a lot of activity is in the area of Frankford and Cottman Avenues.

Here’s the notice that was sent two days ago that was posted on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook Page.

Hopefully the fans will be out in full force to celebrate after the game this Sunday, but either way, we hope no people, property, or horses are harmed. However, it’s good to take these steps to be ready.
