Social media torches Eagles-Cowboys referees after awful offensive PI call

Social media torches Eagles-Cowboys referees after awful offensive PI call

We're so quick to yell at our TVs and pull out our smartphones to tweet outrage after a referee makes a call we deem outrageous. Oftentimes, it's an emotional reaction. Other times, it's not. This is one of those times.

Shortly after the Cowboys took a 23-16 late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles quickly responded when Carson Wentz hooked up with rookie tight end Dallas Goedert for what appeared to be a 75-yard game-tying touchdown catch.

Except the refs decided this was offensive pass interference:

That's not offensive pass interference. Goedert collided with Cowboys safety Jeff Heath, hit his head and performed a swim move to get around Heath. There appeared to be very little contact, certainly not enough to warrant a flag.

Ultimately, the Eagles ended up scoring on the drive and the outrage went all for naught as the game went to overtime. But still, to call this penalty at that point of the game just can't happen.

To the social media world we go.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
