"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
As a huge BG fan, I was happy to hear about how well he had been doing in training camp/pre-season for Philly (e.g., some observers predicting he could be NFL Def Rookie of the Year).
After this busy sports weekend, I realized I had missed the Philly-Packers game and I mosied over to the box score to see how BG had done. Unfortunately, he didn't show up (i.e., zero tackles). He wasn't hurt, and played a lot of the game, he just didn't make any tackles.
It's only one game, I am sure in his next game he'll return to awesomeness, but in a town that has notoriously tough fans, I hope he gets it going soon.
Thought I'd post this, in case other's had missed, in the aftermath of our ND victory euphoria, how BG did during his first pro game. Here's an article which describes BG's game:
Not a big fan of the guy, but Morgan Trent had a big day for the Bungles with 3 picks, 2 tackles.
Brandon Graham also showed up tonight with his first sack (yea, it's preseason, but I'm sure it was a big moment for him) as well as another TFL.
ESPN Box Score Honorable mention: Avant 1 catch, Leon Hall and Dhani Jones w/ 2 tackles each.
Tonight is BG's debut as a NFL bonecrushing DE. He did not start but has played every drive since. So far, he's had one great QB pressure and hit, and has been featured twice by the announcers. Updates of note to follow.
Article on ESPN about the eagles training camp. Lists the biggest surprise thus far in camp as none other than Brandon Graham. Not an eagles fan but I'm excited to watch him play this year, hopefully he keeps it up.
