It’s sort of been a nightmare if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, and truthfully, it’s kind of hard to remember, at times, where all of the drama started. We just went to be one day as both members of the media and Birds fans, and everything we used to tease Dallas Cowboys fans about became relevant to our own situations and favorite football team.
Who would have thunk that the Eagles were actually the team with all of the off-field drama and the meddling owner?
Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The truth is Jerry Jones is meddlesome, but as far as those areas that we would label as being fit for a soap opera, it’s hard to deny that Dallas has been relatively quiet aside from some Ezekiel Elliott stuff here and there. It’s actually Philly that’s been the traveling reality show.
That’s why it’s good to see some good news coming out of the NovaCare Complex and one of the more trusted voices, whether you love him or not, for Eagles news.
Zach Ertz and the Philadelphia Eagles may be mending some broken fences.
No Philadelphia Eagles fan worth their salt has to be told who Howard Eskin is. He’s loved by some and hated by others, but whether you agree with his takes or not, Birds fans have learned over time that if he says something, you can take it to the bank.
"Latest on Eagles Zach Ertz. I know hear there is a great chance Ertz will be on (the) team at start of (the) season. Been told Zach will be there at start of training camp Tuesday. Zach has been working out in team facility for close to last 2 weeks with teammates. He’s over the issues."
Now, while that isn’t much, it’s important because we were told that, on one hand, seeing Ertz anywhere around team facilities again was highly unlikely, and on the other, this rift between the greatest tight end in team history and the organization was unrepairable.
This has to qualify as good news, and it is for one reason. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Ertz will be an Eagle for life. This doesn’t guarantee that a long-term deal is coming because, honestly, it probably won’t be. It just feels good to see that The long and short of everything is this.
Even if things don’t work out and Zach Ertz leaves anyway, at least the split won’t be as venomous as we once thought it would be. That has to count for something right? By a show of hands, who’s sick of seeing just about everyone who’s been associated with this team for a while leave the organization on bad terms?
