JJ Arcega-Whiteside’s dropped touchdown and a bad beat for anyone who bet him as an Anytime TD Scorer
I honestly don’t care how annoying it is spelling out JJ Arcega-Whiteside. I refuse to give the Eagles wide receiver a nickname, even more so when it’s a good one.
The Eagles wrapped up the 2021 regular season yesterday in a meaningless game against the Dallas Cowboys. Jalen Hurts didn’t even play, and no starters outside of Jason Kelce (one snap), DeVonta Smith (14 snaps), Jalen Reagor, and Quez Watkins even saw the field.
That of course, left the door open for Arcega-Whiteside to get a good amount of playing time at wide receiver. The 25-year old was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft and has been one of the biggest disappointments in Eagles’ history.
Last night was no different. Arcega-Whiteside was given an golden opportunity to catch a touchdown pass during the game. The ball hit him square in the numbers but of course, Arcega-Whiteside looked like a complete idiot and dropped the football.

All over Twitter, I saw tons of Anytime Touchdown Scorer bets for JJ Arcega-Whiteside, including one from our very own Victor Williams. Needless to say, no one was happy after watching their bets get torn to pieces after the play.
There’s no way the Eagles can continue to waste a roster sport on this guy and honestly, he should break off some of his contract and pay back every Anytime Touchdown Scorer bet placed for him last night. It’s literally the least he can do after being an absolute bust the last three seasons.
