Rodney Harrison and I chat for two hours on NBC Sports Radio once a week. It’s truly one of the most unique dynamic shows on the radio. For a guy who is everywhere on TV and in the media. Even Bleacher Report picked up a story on here about Rod wanting to bench Cam Newton.
With Jim Irsay making some questionable comments, Harrison and I were plugging away when an interesting comparison came up:
Wow. As much as I joked about Mitchell being “bad news” it turns out this whole thing was a big deal. The back and forth between Fred Ex and Hot Rod, leading to both normally tight lipped coaches speaking about it. That was the last game Freddie ever played.
I posted this on Facebook how frustrating it was to hear this as an Eagles fan. Freddie chimed in on the post too. For the record I’m more than over that loss and don’t “blame” anyone still. However this speaks directly to the notion that although guys don’t “need” any extra incentive, they sure as hell will take it.
