Eagles’ Nelson Agholor Gets Roasted By Philly Fans For Dropping A Game-Tying Touchdown On Fourth Down

For those who thought Eagles fans would forgive Nelson Agholor for failing to track a 4th & 10 game-tying pass with under a minute left in the fourth quarter, you obviously didn’t hear the boos raining down on the offense intermittently during the game for shit you wouldn’t boo for unless your team went up 10-0 in the first quarter and failed to score a single point since.

Agholor, who’s assumed the role of scapegoat before, is the obvious choice in Philly’s Week 11 17-10 loss to the Patriots after failing to haul in this pass:

Sure, that pass was no gimme by any stretch, but the 26-year-old has built a portfolio of bullshit built on drops and piss poor effort. So despite Agholor being the Eagles second-most productive receiver Sunday with 4 catches for 40 yards (eek), residents of Philadelphia all dropped their cheesesteaks to collective take a runny dump on the fifth-year receiver.

It’s safe to say that there will be no love lost between Agholor and Philly fans if the team decides to ship him out when his contract expires after this season. They have even throw snowballs at him.
