The Eagles are going back to work today after White House trip ‘canceled’

After the President of the United States ‘canceled’ the Super Bowl Champions’ White House trip yesterday evening, many wondered if the Eagles would put the suddenly free day to good use.

And that’s exactly what they’re doing. They’re going back to work.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles are using today as an organized team activity day.

Now, this won’t play well… “on the other side.” Fox News already used images of Eagles players kneeling to pray during a montage discussing the canceled trip.

But, there are many more that think Ron Brooks kneeling for a preseason game indicts the entire team – and, no, Brooks was not on the 2017 Eagles Super Bowl squad.

UPDATE: Fox News issued an apology, but the damage is probably already done. People have seen it on television and will believe it regardless of an apology online. Maybe an on-air apology would’ve also been necessary.
