The Philadelphia Eagles dropped to 3-6 on the season after a 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles disappointing season could be summed up in the play above. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin getting a case of “alligator arms” going over the middle trying to avoid a big hit from Gerald Sensabaugh. It didn’t work. Sensabaugh unloaded on Maclin anyway.
This is one of the biggest pull-ups in recent memory. However, the play was practically forgotten when Maclin caught a touchdown pass just a few plays later…but we remembered!
Eagles’ players have a history of getting “alligator arms” when seasons aren’t going to well, e.g. Ricky “for who, for what?” Watters.
