Award shows seemingly don’t mean what they once did. Sure, we’ll watch, but it has become increasingly more difficult to do so without feeling like you haven’t wasted much of your time. Don’t stress. This isn’t one of those calls for boycotts or anything like that, but here’s a serious question. When was the last time you tuned into the Grammys or the Oscars and felt like the right people were winning? Have you seen what’s going on with the NFL Honors? As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you have to be scratching your head.
On Wednesday, finalists were named for most of the NFL’s postseason awards. As you probably figured would be the case, the Eagles didn’t get their proper due.
Twitter reacts to the postseason snubs of three Eagles.
Often, when we say no one likes Philly and we don’t care, we’re honestly kidding around. We could care less about the conspiracy theories and whatnot, but you know what? Maybe Jason Kelce was on to something!
Eagles Twitter was quick to share its disapproval of the news. We stand with them!
That brings us to Brandon Graham. How on Planet Earth is he not in the running for the Comeback Player of the Year Award? After missing all but two games in 2021, he returned to the field and set a single-season career-high for sacks with 11 total.
Saquon Barkley (Giants), Christian McCaffrey (49ers), and Geno Smith (Seahawks) are nominated, but B.G. IS the Comeback Player of the Year… period.
There were rumors that Nick Sirianni may not be a finalist for the AP Coach of the Year Award. Barstool Philly had his back. No one should be shocked about that.
After further review, crises were averted. He’s on the ballot along with Brian Daboll (Giants), Sean McDermott (Bills), Doug Pederson (Jaguars), and Kyle Shanahan (49ers). Honestly, we disagree
with the Brain Daboll nod.
NO COACH WHOSE TEAM FINISHES THIRD IN ITS DIVISION SHOULD EVER BE IN THE RUNNING FOR THIS HONOR. Hey, it is what it is, but if he wins, there needs to be an investigation. Challenge flags will most certainly be thrown from this direction for that one.
