New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford made headlines this weekend following an appearance on NY sports radio station WFAN where he ripped the Philadelphia Eagles. Now Eagles center Jason Kelce is firing back. As if Eagles fans possibly needed any more reason to love the team's bearded center:
Of course a player who is literally not allowed to be touched is talking shit... Is interviewing punters a thing now? @Weatherford5— Jason Kelce (@Jkelce) June 29, 2015
Boom! Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins got a kick out of what Kelce had to say:
Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho, too:
Everybody down!! Shots fired! https://t.co/wSMj1MZ6cw— Emmanuel Acho (@thEMANacho) June 29, 2015
As a reminder, here's what Weatherford's originally said:
"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.""
