He proved it on a “prove it” deal

We get access to a lot of photos here at BGN. Unfortunately, we don’t get to use them all. Some don’t work as lead photos, some get uploaded well after the event, and some just get lost in the shuffle. So I thought from now until training camp, we should show them off, even if we have used them before.

This week it’s Alshon Jeffery, who finished fourth in touchdown receptions as the linchpin of the league’s highest scoring passing offense. Which he did with a torn rotator cuff.

Football is played on the ground, so when you get a good photo of a player in mid-air, it’s impressive. Here Jeffery looks like he’s been randomly inserted into a picture where the player with the ball should be running on the ground.

Catch me if you can. The security guard between the players is a nice unintentional touch.

What happened leading up to this play? It’s irrelevant, the photo tells you everything you need to know: touchdown Eagles.

A great photo doesn’t require a good play, let alone a great one. This pass was incomplete, and it doesn’t matter.

The photos of this catch were so great that I cheated and used one for the header. Sorry Eric Rowe.
