Mid-days With Bob Cooney: Weekdays 10am – 2pm

Lane Johnson (65) reacts after a Jalen Hurts (1) touchdown on a quarterback sneak against the Miami Dolphins during the second quarter at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles have a play that is unstoppable. Whether you call it “The Tush Push” or “The Brotherly Shove“, it is an automatic way to pick up at least one yard. That would be enough to make Eagles fans love it. But the icing on the cake is how it turns some people around the NFL into sniveling babies. The cries of unfairness from fans and media of other fanbases make us love the play that much more. And last night one Dolphins reporter had a full-blown meltdown over it.

Joe Schad of the Orlando Sentinel is not a fan of the play. He made that much clear when he started crying on the website formerly known as Twitter during the game. Every time the Eagles ran it, it was followed shortly by another pouty Tweet by someone who is supposed to be a professional journalist. And the Eagles ran it a lot last night. They scored a TD on it in the 2nd quarter and converted 3 4th and 1s. Including two on their final drive when they were still not on their own side of the 50-yard line.

What Schad and others of his ilk do not understand, is that if it is so unfair, why can’t other teams run it? We have seen so many teams try and copy the move. Very few have had the same success as the Eagles do. The Giants failed so badly at it that they somehow injured two of their players, despite no Eagles players ever getting hurt running the play.

But Schad may take the cake for the most pathetic meltdown yet. The guy is supposed to be a professional journalist. But he sounded more like a fan or radio host with his blatant homerism last night. So while we enjoy having seen our team kick the Dolphins asses, let’s also enjoy seeing a grown man throw a tantrum over a Football play.

Here is his full meltdown, with all of his whiny Tweets about the Tush Push and the Eagles Last Night
