FTW- Lions TE Eric Ebron took exception to a hit Landon Collins laid on him on Monday Night Football and went to the media to lash out at the Giants safety.
“I was pissed off,” Ebron said. “I was pissed off at that little punk of a safety they’ve got over there…
“Collins, he played a good game, that hit just [expletive] me off and I didn’t feel like celebrating,” Ebron said. “I wasn’t in that kind of joyful mood. It was still a good game. He played his butt off trying to guard me. I commend him for that.”
In the argument between a tight end whining about being on the receiving end of a textbook form tackle that should probably be included in some type of NFL instructional video and the safety boasting about his coverage on a guy that had a handful of catches and a touchdown in a decisive victory, I deem no one the winner.
Eric Ebron gets a nod for the passive aggressiveness of "he played his butt off trying to guard me", and Landon Collins the same for making light of just how absurd the complaint is in the first place. That said, I am awarding neither participant a single point in this insanely idiotic spat that was predicated on largely irrational thoughts. May god have mercy on their souls for making us all dumber in trying to understand how potentially the most legal tackle of all time resulted in two grown men basically debating who was the bigger loser.
Newsflash guys, it's us for having to pay it a second of attention when it flashed across our timelines.
