What else could explain the ending of today’s game?
Kicker appreciation. Even though he was not happy to be in the losers’ locker room, Eagles kicker David Akers still admired Bryant’s game-winning field goal.
“The wind was blowing that way, and it’s definitely going to help you distance-wise,” Akers said. “When you look at it, you still have to get it through those poles, and 61 or 62 yards is a long way for the ball to travel. It’s a great kick.”
Before yesterday, Bryant had connected on just 2 of 5 field goals, none longer than 28 yards. He hit from 30, 44 and 62 yards against the Eagles.
Or maybe it’s just the fact that the Eagles suck this year. Either way, seeing your QB hurl on the field is not a good omen.
UPDATE: After the 10/29 loss to the Jaguars, maybe it’s just because the Eagles suck.
I watched 15 minutes of that game and it has to be the worst game I’ve seen since I was a kid and the Arizona Cardinals hadn’t left St. Louis yet.
I want my 15 minutes back.
