Keep Embracing The Notorious Eagles Tush Push, Philadelphia
It’s supposed to be a bad thing for an NFL offense to face a fourth down. However, the crowd at the Linc exploded with cheers against the Buffalo Bills when Kenny Gainwell failed to convert on third down in the first quarter. It was time for the Eagles to use the Tush Push.
A few hours later, the Philly fans breathed a collective sigh of relief after an overtime win. In the moment, they enjoyed the most notorious play in the NFL that has slowly become the perfect symbol of the identity of the league’s most notorious fan base.
The Infamous Tush Push
Jalen Hurts and Jason Kelce are the best in the business at executing the quarterback sneak, and the detestable (but legal) push from behind gives the added boost.
When the Eagles lined up for fourth-and-1, they actually didn’t even need to run it. Buffalo defender Jordan Philips jumped offside, unnecessarily crushed Cam Jurgens, and moved the chains without a fourth down attempt. It was probably just some frustration about a play that’s nearly unstoppable.
The first down continued a touchdown drive that eventually ended in…you guessed it … a one-yard quarterback sneak with a nice “Brotherly Shove” from behind.
Any Eagles touchdown is going to ignite the crowd at the Linc. The Tush Push, however, has become the perfect play to symbolize the swagger that characterizes Philly fans.
- Opponents know it’s coming.
- They absolutely despise it.
- They try to stop it.
- It happens anyway.
- You hear complaints about it afterwards.
It sounds kind of like when Eagles fans invade an opponent’s stadium for a road game.
The Jawnstacle Course
The Preston & Steve Show joined in the fun with their “Jawnstacle Course” at Camp Out For Hunger. One leg of the obstacle course featured Casey Boy in some interesting old school Eagles gear ready for a good Tush Push.

It was the perfect addition to segment that also featured some playful mocking of the “snowballs at Santa Claus” story, a clever Rocky reference, and the unofficial way to reserve parking spaces in the City of Brotherly Love.
Never change, Philly.
