NFL media members blast officials on Twitter after Philadelphia Eagles loss
Warren Sharp is just like you if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan. He didn’t like the calls the officiating in Sunday’s loss either.
At this point, any self-respecting football fan wouldn’t dare dream of breaking the-hour rule or using ‘the refs cheated’ as an excuse. If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan this morning, you’ve got a pretty good reason to be bitter.
With the season, pretty much, on the line, Philly battled their long-time rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, to an overtime coin flip. Dallas would drive straight down the field to triumph in the extra session, but there are quite a few ‘Birds’ fans who are unhappy on the morning after and rightfully so.
This was a tough game to watch if you had any emotional investment.
Warren Sharp and the rest of the NFL world weigh in.
Analytics expert Warren Sharp seemed to be watching the game on Sunday, and he had no problem telling everyone what he felt about some of the questionable calls that were made on Sunday.
Just check out some of the tweets:
Sure, Philly went on to score after the penalty call, but a ton of time was wasted. It’s always dangerous when you get into what ifs, but is it unfair to say that Philly would have had a little time left to mount a last-minute drive at the end of the game had Dallas Goedert‘s dash to the end zone been ruled a touchdown?
It’s definitely possible. Stephen A Smith has never had any issue expressing his disdain for Cowboys fans. Check out some of his tweets from Sunday:
Cue Brian Westbrook as well:
Yes ladies and gentlemen, this was tough to watch, but whether you agree with Adam Stites of SBNation in his opinion that the refs were to blame or the Eagles own Malcolm Jenkins about the ridiculous nature of a fumble recovery that was ruled non-conclusive, two things are certain.
History will forever remember this one as a loss, and it’s time to get ready for the Los Angeles Rams on next Sunday night.
