Invisible man stops Avantby Eric Schwartz
For the second straight day it is an Eagles receiver that finds himself in this column. Fans watching the ending to Sunday’s Eagles-Redskins game witnessed Jason Avant drop a would-be touchdown pass in the final play of the game. It was by no means a gimme, but the ball was in Avant’s hands and the play was not made.
However the dropped pass isn’t whant put Avant in this column, it was his response in the postgame. Following the 17-12 loss Avant told reporters “I’m not sure what happened, I guess someone knocked the ball out.”
No, Jason, no one knocked the ball out, you simply didn’t hang on. Next time, blame yourself, not the invisible man.
