Jalen Reagor’s biggest fan answered some criticism aimed at the Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver recently.
If you’re one of those people who feel as though you lack the support of a maternal figure, it would be wise if you extended the olive branch to repair that relationship. Sure, we’ve all had different upbringings and there are always extenuating circumstances. You may not even be the guilty party if there’s a disagreement, but the love and support of mom can feel like walking through life with the U.S. military on call if you have it. Just ask the Philadelphia Eagles‘ rookie wide receiver, Jalen Reagor, if you need to be reminded of that.
He can provide a corroborating opinion.
Perhaps one of the most frustrating aspects of being locked down by COVID-19 is we’re forced to endure a lot of recycled topics on our favorite sports stories. There’s the “how much should Dak Prescott make” debate. There’s the fallout of ESPN’s The Last Dance documentary, and if you watch FS1’s Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, you’re bound to hear about LeBron James, Tom Brady and the Eagles and Dallas Cowboys rivalry at some point during every show.
Skip Bayless has been very vocal of his disapproval of what the Eagles did in the first two rounds of the most recent NFL Draft, often stating everything from Jalen Hurts’ selection is evidence that the Eagles don’t believe in Carson Wentz to Jalen Reagor was taken too high when there were better options available at wide receiver.
Both statements have been argued, not only by Bayless and Sharpe but by members of the Eagles fans and media. What he may or may not accomplish has been the subject of a lot of conversation. So has the many defenses of his selection by a few reliable sources.
A Philadelphia Eagles rookie gets some motivation. A loving mother shares her thoughts.
If you missed any of this, fear not. It won’t be difficult to find. Mr. Reagor pinned a retweet of a fan-made video including some of Bayless’ comments. We won’t post that tweet here as the fan doesn’t own the rights to the video, but as Eagles fans, you pretty much know what to expect from “good old Skip” by now.
As stated earlier. there’s nothing like having mom in your corner though, and Ishia Johnson, Jalen Reagor’s mom, didn’t take too kindly to what was said about her son.
Here’s a quote from her response.
"I love how my son hasn’t played a down and the hate keeps growing!! We don’t talk, we about that action!! Twitter and all other social media has been gas on a fire that has been burning in his soul!! Get a ticket and watch the Reagor show!! You will sing a different song old man!"
Get him Ms. Johnson! There isn’t a mother on the planet (or a son with close ties to his mother) that’s going to find any fault with that one. Might we allow ourselves to believe that “Reag” has some added motivation now? Expect Philly’s rookie wide receiver to save a couple of his best performances on the season for Week 8 and Week 16, Philly’s two dates with the Cowboys on their 2020 schedule.
This guy is going to shut a lot of mouths in 2020. You can take that one to the bank.
