Jason Kelce responds to reports that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to permanently ban the ‘Tush Push’
Jason Kelce, the heart and soul of our Philadelphia Eagles, couldn't care less about a…
Micah Parsons got to experience the power of ‘The Brotherly Shove’ first hand last night as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 28-23 to fall to 5-3 on the season.
Parsons has been on record over the past few weeks talking about his undying love for the Eagles, saying that the team doesn’t have any weaknesses, while also defending the now signature “Brotherly Shove” play.
Last night against the Eagles, he had the opportunity to defend against The Brotherly Shove and all things considered, Parsons was right about his initial statements when saying that the Eagles are unstoppable.
Hoping to avoid a safety, the Eagles were lined up in The Brotherly Shove formation on 1st and 10 backed up on their own 1-yard line. As soon as the ball was snapped, Parsons tried to leap over the pile to stop Hurts and the Eagles’ offensive line from gaining any ground.
That did not work.
Instead, Micah Parsons looked like someone crowd surfing at The Fillmore.
To his credit, Parsons was actually credited for the tackle but his efforts weren’t noticed given the fact that the Eagles gained a solid 2-yards on the play.
“It’s hard to say, ‘oh, it’s illegal,’ for one team because (of) who they have. We just have to deal with it,” he said. “We have to adjust. We have to prepare to stop it. And it’s not up to the league to say hey, just because you can’t stop it, we have to take it away. No, we have to get better. We have to get stronger our front and we have to stop it. We have to get them out of it.”
Looks like Micah Parsons and the Dallas Cowboys will have to return to the drawing board. Whatever their plan was to stop The Brotherly Shove simply did not work last night.
The Philadelphia Eagles are now 8-1 heading into a much needed Bye Week. They will then travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
