NRC should never play another down for the Philadelphia Eagles again.

Just in case you’re a little hazy, you’re right if you’re one of those fans that keep looking at the television screen and saying to yourselves that you had to have seen Nickell Robey-Coleman somewhere before.

You’re absolutely right. Yes, ‘NRC’ is the guy that interfered with Tommylee Lewis in that NFC Championship Game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams in what might be the most egregious no-call in the 101-year history of the NFL. That one made its way to ABC’s Good Morning America.

Take a look. You can thank ABC News’s official YouTube channel for the clip.

Perhaps Robey-Coleman’s words after that one summed up everything perfectly. “Oh, hell yeah. That was P.I.”

There’s no nice way to say this. He hasn’t gotten much better ever since. He’s a borderline liability in coverage every time he’s on the field. He jogged after Daniel Jones on that long run in Week 7 (thank goodness Jones tripped), and every time you watch this guy play, it looks like he’s never played with this team before. Only the Good Lord in Heaven knows why this guy got the name ‘The Slot God’ in the first place.

He’s on a one-year deal. He won’t be back next season. Why not sit him and let some young guys get some experience? We don’t care if you have to bring a safety don to cover the other team’s slot receiver. Nothing can be worse than what this guy brings to the table.
