The No-Ring Circus continues

What was Jeremiah Trotter thinking?

The Eagles linebacker walked over to Falcons defensive back Kevin Mathis and exchanged words. Trotter then pushed Mathis, who responded with a punch. Things escalated as players and officials joined to break up the fight.

The referees immediately ejected Trotter and Mathis.

If that wasn't enough, the Eagles gathered on the Falcon at midfield and the Falcons took offense. Both teams met at midfield in a large rugby scrum fighting for position.

Again, what was Trotter thinking?

Emotions or not, it was a stupid mistake.

You shouldn't even do that kind of trash when you win. These guys have all the earmarks of a team with serious internal issues. You can't show up for an opening week game out of shape and with a bad case of butter fingers and expect to walk over any opponent, much less the Falcons. Coach Andy has a huge problem on his hands. Unless the boys decide they want to put aside the garbage and be professional football players, this team won't make the playoffs.

Trotter did not throw a punch. The ref LIED and said he saw him throw a punch, which we can see on the replay is not true. He might be wrong for getting involved in the situation but he should not have been ejected.

He may not have thrown a true punch but the hard shove sure could have been looked at as a punch.

i say it was the falcons "play of the day". although the falcons would never admit it, i say the whole thing was a set up to get trotter out of the game.

What happened, happened...tough! People get fired up before combat, controlling that fire and channeling it to a good course is usually the tricky part.

Let’s hope we bounce back...GO EAGLES!
