Remember the scene in the greatest TV show of all time, HBO’s The Wire, when Bodie and Poot had to whack their boy Wallace? They had to do it to prove to Stringer that they were down with the Barksdale Crew.
The scene depicted the prototypical “prove your one of us” seen in a ton of movies over the years.
Hey, Chip, if you want to prove you’re one of us, here’s what you’ll do tomorrow. You’ll saunter up to the podium at the NovaCare Complex and introduce yourself to the Philly media and fans by saying:
“My first move as coach was to cut Casey Matthews. Time’s Yours.”
Matthews was the only player from your BCS Championship Game roster drafted two years ago. He sucks as an NFL guy. We know it, Howie Roseman knows it and you better know it. Dude had a whole 11 tackles in 2012. Awesome for a 2011 fourth round pick, right?
He was your guy. End his time in Philly showing us you know NFL talent, and we’ll be eating out of your hand until your first loss.
