Ronnie Brown Tries to Lateral at the Goal Line, Fumbles (Animation)
During the first half of the Eagles-Niners game on Sunday, Philadelphia made the mistake of handing the ball off to Ronnie Brown on the goal line. Although Michael Vick was in the backfield when the play began, Brown apparently thought the Eagles were incorporating the wildcat offense. How else would you explain his lateral/pass attempt as he was being taken to the ground at the 1-yard line? Check out this animation, courtesy of Gifulmination via @bubbaprog on Twitter.
The Eagles have a knack for bonehead plays like this, as this is probably the dumbest thing we’ve seen on offense since DeSean Jackson prematurely celebrated back in 2008. Needless to say, Brown has discovered a tremendous way to remove himself from the red zone equation in Philadelphia.
