Roger Goodell wants to ban the Philadelphia Eagles’ “Tush Push” for no good reason

by Moxieplay

It’s become common knowledge that, as a defense, you can’t let the Philadelphia Eagles offense get into a down in which they only need one or two yards. If that is ever the case, the odds are you have no chance of stopping them from getting a first down.

There’s practically nothing a defense can do to stop the “Tush Push”, mainly because the Eagles offensive line led by center Jason Kelce is so strong at the point of contact and Jalen Hurts squats one million pounds. The effectiveness of the play has led to headaches for defensive coordinators playing against the Eagles and offensive coordinators trying to copy it.

Roger Goodell hates the Tush Push and fun

Now, it seems the play has reached DEFCON 1 levels in the NFL league office. Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly doesn’t want the play to exist ever again, according to The Athletic’s Dianna Russini.

It’s apparent this is going to be heavily debated among the competition committee made up of owners, general managers and coaches. It’s important to note that there isn’t a single person from the Eagles organization on the competition committee. However, three of their divisional opponents are represented… Though it will all come down to the voting, the most important opinion about the play may come from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. I was told by a league source that Goodell wants to see this play removed from the game permanently.

Russini didn’t delve into the specifics of why Goodell hates the play so much, but there really can’t be much of a valid reason other than the Eagles being infinitely more successful with it than any other team. Even with that being the case, why should they be penalized for that?

The entire game of American football comes down to the trenches. Offensive lines need to win their blocking matchups against defensive linemen in order to allow plays to develop in both the pass and run game. The Tush Push is simply another play in which that unfolds.

It will be interesting to hear Goodell’s reasoning if his wish comes to fruition.
