Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nathan Gerry is back. We have much to discuss.

Depending on where you were in our great country, when the Philadelphia Eagles dropped the news on the second Sunday of August, you were either wrapping up those final few moments of sleep before trying to force yourself out of bed, or you were just finishing up breakfast and, possibly, getting ready to head out for church. Such is the life of being anyone on the East Coast or a resident of one of those beautiful cities over on the ‘left coast’. better known as the ‘Wild, Wild West’.

For us East Coasters, it was probably about 9:30 AM or so when we heard. The Philadelphia Eagles have activated the ‘White Snake’, better known as Nathan Gerry from their Reserve/COVID-19 list. The news was first reported by Chris McPherson of and later confirmed via their social media accounts.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, third-year reserve offensive tackle Jordan Mailata, and veteran All-World right tackle Lane Johnson (even if some of you have forgotten that we haven’t) are all still out and, hopefully, finishing up their final days of quarantine. Buckle up ladies and gentleman. We have much to discuss.
