Brent Celek, Sad

Nov 19, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

Brent Celek is not having a good year. For the second week in a row, the Philadelphia Eagles tight end dropped a pass that wound up in the hands of the team not wearing a green jersey.

There was also a lot of talk yesterday on the radio and on the CSN post game show about effort. Are the Eagles players giving enough effort? Have they given up? I’m not sure effort is the problem at this point though.

I think most fans would say they believe Celek is one of those guys that tends to leave it all out on the field. He’s taken some of the most brutal hits of anyone in green this season and usually gets right back up and goes across the middle the next time his name is called.

He’s also pretty honest about both the team and his own shortcomings. He showed this yet again on Sunday when he vented a bit to his Twitter followers.

Sure, that’s nice. Brent realizes watching this team sucks for all of Philadelphia and he’s going to work harder. All fine and dandy. But as the old saying goes, Tweets are cheap.
