Nah… but maybe just enough of it.
A few hours later, in response to the play — Eason’s 10th since getting injured — a fan wrote this on a message board: “Skinny (Eason’s nickname) looked like he was standing there thinking about a beer and some (expletive) up in the third row.”
On a separate discussion board, another fan wrote: “Anyone else OK with Eason transferring now?”
“Yep !! He gone,” someone responded.
Last year, Eason’s calm demeanor was viewed as a “clutch” gene. This year, some fans perceive it as a lack of infectious energy when he is on the field.
For some, success isn’t sufficiently enjoyable unless you can kick somebody down while you’re chest bumping. That’s not something I’ve only observed in Eason’s case, either.
