New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford recently appeared on NY sports radio station WFAN and took some shots at the Philadelphia Eagles. He didn't limit his verbal assault to the team itself, but rather brought up three of the Eagles' quarterbacks along with head coach Chip Kelly. Via NJ.com, hat tip to BBV:
"I'm the biggest Tim Tebow fan in the world," he said. "I mean, who wouldn't want their daughter to date a guy like that? I'll tell you want, I don't want him taking snaps for my team."
Then he broke out the car metaphors for the rest of the Eagles quarterbacks.
"I'm gonna give you a Ferrari that maybe won't be running all the time, or I'm giving you a nice Cadillac sedan," he said. "It's not the fastest but you know what you're going to get out of it."
Who's the Cadillac? You guessed it, Mark Sanchez.
"[Sam] Bradford can go zero to 60 in three seconds," he added. "But you don't know if he's going to start up some days."
Weatherford added he's heard a rumor Bradford is getting an extension and scoffed, "Good luck with that. ... Chip Kelly will get himself in serious trouble if they get an extension for that guy and he gets hurt? He's done.""
Weatherford has a reputation for being a loudmouth. He once called Philadelphia "a dump." Ironically, Weatherford's Twitter was hacked by an Eagles fan last year.
Since the beginning of the Chip Kelly era in 2013, the Eagles have gone 3-1 against the Giants in four meetings. Philadelphia has outscored the G-Men a total of 104-62 in that span. The only game New York won is when an injured Michael Vick started and a rookie Matt Barkley had to take over, and it was only a one possession game in the end. Philadelphia embarrassed the Giants last year when New York talked a ton of trash leading up the team's Week 6 game before getting shut out by a total of 27-0. Then Mark Sanchez hung 34 points on the Giants in
New York New Jersey to close the season.
