Eagles fans don’t flush
“You take you a deuce, you don’t sit there and look at it."

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles dropped an absolute turd Monday night. To the QB’s credit, he fished a football-speak cliche out of the pipes of abstraction and into the bowl of the very, very real.

“You take you a deuce, you don’t sit there and look at it,” Hurts said after his team was routed by the hated Cowboys, 41-21. “You flush it and move on. We gon’ flush it and move on.”

Athletes and coaches are fond of saying “flush it.” The Rays once kept a miniature toilet in their dugout to remind them to move on to the next at-bat; Vikings receiver Adam Thielen does an imaginary flushing motion after poor plays.

So thank you, Jalen Hurts, for the reminder that what is being flushed is poop. Just one quibble. Philly fans absolutely love staring at it, examining it, and showing up with binoculars in the 700 level to watch it week after week after week.
