Yesterday it was Bill Cowher pretending to tackle Chris Hudson on a special teams touchdown.
Today? Maurice Jones-Drew with a devastating block on Shawne Merriman.
Few know this, but this tweet caused a bit of a ruckus on social media.
According to ESPN’s Mike DiRocco, the tweet didn’t sit too well with Merriman:
Tuesday is apparently National Pancake Day -- not to be confused with IHOP’s National Pancake Day on March 8 -- but the Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t make it a happy one for former San Diego Chargers defensive end Shawne Merriman.
The team’s official Twitter account sent out a tweet wishing their fans a Happy National Pancake Day and accompanied it with a clip of former running back Maurice Jones-Drew laying out Merriman with a violent block during a game between the teams in 2007.
Jones-Drew had the reputation as one of the league’s best backs at picking up the blitz, and the 5-foot-7, 210-pound Jones-Drew pancaked the 6-5, 272-pound Merriman on a play near the goal line during the Jaguars’ 24-17 victory in 2007. Jones-Drew’s block allowed David Garrard to complete an easy touchdown pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis.
Merriman, obviously, wasn’t thrilled to see the tweet and it prompted a response from his official Twitter account:
@Jaguars Free Pancakes is what y'all have to give out for people to come to the games.— Shawne Merriman (@shawnemerriman) February 9, 2016
Send us your favorite moments and we’ll dig into each one until the Jaguars kick off on September 8th — including whatever video, audio, or stories we can find.
