Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was spotted driving through the stadium complex in South Philly before the NFC Championship Game against the the San Francisco 49ers. He decided to issue an expletive-punctuated statement to random Eagles fans from his car.
The Eagles defensive coordinator was prophetic with his statement, as they dominated the 49ers 31-7 to advance to the Super Bowl. The Eagles defense led by Haason Reddick beat up on the San Francisco offense. Knocking out both 49ers quarterbacks and holding down the running game, except for one touchdown run by Christian McCaffrey.
Maybe this will finally get fans behind Jonathan Gannon. He has been a punching bag for fans and some members of the local media.
