Yesterday was a rough afternoon for Nelson Agholor and the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles' receiving corps.

The Eagles dropped seven passes in a 27-24 loss to the Detroit Lions, with Agholor being one of the main culprits. The fifth-year wide receiver even drew the ire of a Good Samaritan who helped save children from a burning building in Philly.

In a television interview at the scene, the man said he and other rescuers were catching kids being thrown out of the building, "unlike Agholor."

Agholor responded to the man's barb on Twitter tonight, doing so with the utmost class. "Thank you for being a hero in the community, would like to invite you and your family to the next home game," Agholor wrote. "Twitter help me out and get me in touch with him."

In all honesty, kudos to Agholor here. He knows he had a rough game and this isn't the first time he's been the target of irate Philly fans.

He showed a lot of grace and composure here. Hopefully he and the mystery hero can meet in person and get along.
