Chris Long Joins In On The Bashing Of Cris Collinsworth

Cris Collinsworth on NBC.

The Philadelphia Eagles' lineman has joined in on the rip Cris Collinsworth party.

The man facing the most criticism after Sunday night's Super Bowl might not be Bill Belichick or Matt Patricia. It might not be any player or coach.

It might be Cris Collinsworth, NBC's color commentator for the contest. The analyst has been getting crushed for how he called the game.

Collinsworth, who's often referred to as one of the best analysts in the game, had a rough Super Bowl. Eagles fans certainly think this (they believe he was biased toward the Patriots), but a bunch of non-Philadelphia fans agree.

Thousands of people took to Twitter over the course of the game to voice their displeasure with Collinsworth. Much of this criticism came late in the contest when Collinsworth spent several minutes blabbering about how Zach Ertz' go-ahead touchdown might not be a catch. (It was obviously a catch.)

Philadelphia's Chris Long has joined in on the criticism. The Eagles' defensive lineman re-watched the game on Monday and didn't take kindly to some of Collinsworth's statements.

"Ertz takes 17 steps and Collinsworth says he thinks they have to overturn it," Long tweeted with a laughing emoji.

"He also thought it’s my job to run with Tom Brady w QB wheel route on a reverse pass. Lmao," he added.

Hating on the analyst is nothing new. Most players and fans think the announcers have something against their team.

But in this case, it's probably valid. Collinsworth was off on Sunday night. The criticism is deserved.
