Eagles player Chris Long says hell donate rest of salary to charity

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long donated his first six game checks to fund scholarships in his hometown of Charlottesville,In September, Virginia. CBSSports.com reports that on Wednesday Long announced that he will donate his remaining 10 game checks this season to increase educational equality by launching the Pledge 10 for Tomorrow campaign.

 I want to celebrate the awesome opportunity I've had to play football by giving back to the communities that have given me that gift,"In my 10th year," Long said in a statement. "Educational opportunity and equity are the best gateway to a better tomorrow for everyone in America."

"My wife and I have been passionate about education being a gateway for upward mobility and equality," Long told The Associated Press. "I think we can all agree that equity in education can help affect change that we all want to see in this country."

 who signed a two-year,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/caleb-sturgis-jersey-authentic]Womens Caleb Sturgis Jersey[/url], $4.5 million contract with the Eagles in the offseason and has a base salary of $1 million for 2017,Long, has spoken out on social issues affecting the league and its players. He also puts his money where his mouth is,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/lane-johnson-jersey-authentic]Womens Lane Johnson Jersey[/url], as evidenced by his decision to donate every game check this season.

' I would ask them, 'Do you stick to whatever your occupation is?'" Long said in August, according to Yahoo.com. "People always want to hear from athletes when they agree with them. When we voice a [dissenting] opinion,"If you listen to people who tell you to 'Stick to sports,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/zach-ertz-jersey-authentic]Womens Zach Ertz Jersey[/url], they have an issue with it. I think that athletes are role models. We should think about what we're saying, then speak. And speak wisely."

Charlottesville officials file suit to prevent future white nationalist demonstrations

The AP reports that Long grew up in Charlottesville and starred in high school at St. Anne's-Belfield before going to the University of Virginia. He was moved to start the scholarship program following the violent protests in Charlottesville in August.

"Our hometown is a wonderful place and I feel like people got the wrong idea about what the residents of Charlottesville 

The Philadelphia Eagles open a key three-game set at home looking to build off the momentum of what has become the best record in the NFC through six weeks. It begins with a Monday night matchup against the NFC East rival Washington Redskins. The Eagles took the first game of the season series in the season opener with a 30-17 victory. A win on Monday night would put the Eagles in an even more comfortable position atop the division standings with a 3-0 mark against the division and a three-game lead at the minimum in the win column.

But since losing to the Eagles, Washington has been playing some good football. Should the Eagles be concerned? Let’s take a look at the Redskins heading into Monday night’s contest at Lincoln Financial Field.

 the Redskins have gone 3-1. Like the Eagles,Since losing to the Eagles in the season opener,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/mychal-kendricks-jersey-authentic]Authentic Mychal Kendricks Jersey[/url], the only loss in that run has come against the Kansas City Chiefs. Two of those wins have come in close games with a 27-20 victory over the Los Angeles Rams and last week’s 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

 Cousins fumbled the football and saw it returned for a touchdown in the final minutes of the game. Washington has the NFL’s 8th-ranked passing offense and 10th-best rushing offense,Kirk Cousins has been playing well since the season opener with eight touchdowns and just one interception. Cousins will be playing with an extra chip on his shoulder considering how the last game against the Eagles went. With a chance to drive his team down the field for a game-winning score, led by Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine. Thompson is also Washington’s leading receiver while the Redskins continue to hope for a breakout performance by Terrelle Pryor.

 but will be sidelined with a foot injury and could be gone for a while. It is also unknown whether or not cornerback Bashaud Breeland will be available due to a sprained MCL, and Josh Norman remains in question after missing Sunday’s game against the 49ers with a fractured rib. The secondary is banged up with multiple injuries at the safety position,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/vinny-curry-jersey-authentic]Womens Vinny Curry Jersey[/url], too,The Washington defense will be playing Monday night without rookie defensive end Jonathan Allen. The big man out of Alabama was playing well in pass rush, and the Redskins are considering removing DeAngelo Hall from the PUP list. But even if Hall is removed from the PUP list, he would be unavailable for Monday night’s game.

 Running Back – Thompson may have just 175 rushing yards in five games, but he has been used effectively in the passing game. Thompson is on pace for 1,Chris Thompson,000 receiving yards out of the Washington backfield, so the Eagles will have to be cautious of what he can do on screen and swing passes.

 Cornerback The second-year player from Virginia Tech has recorded two interceptions in the last three games,Kyle Fuller, which already surpassed his rookie season with zero interceptions. Fuller is getting more comfortable in his role in the defense and can get his hands on the football.

 it is worth noting the only two losses the Redskins have had this season have come against the only 5-1 teams in the league (Philadelphia and Kansas City). The previous meeting in Week 1 was closer than the final score would indicate, although Washington will have to find a way to disrupt the momentum the Eagles offense has developed in recent weeks. With some key injury issues on the defensive side of the football,Despite the good run the Redskins have been on since losing to the Eagles in the season opener, that may be tricky and the Eagles could wrap up a sweep of their division rivals to further cement themselves atop the NFC East moving forward.

Almost all the ingredients are in place for the Eagles and Washington Redskins to have the most bitter of rivalries. Close proximity? Check. Same division? Yes. Rabid fan bases? Absolutely. Long history? They’ve been playing each other since 1933, when the Boston Redskins shared Fenway Park with the Red Sox.

 when the Eagles have been good, the Redskins have not,The only thing consistently missing during their first 84 seasons of going against each other was timing. With only a few exceptions, and vice-versa. The teams have met in the postseason only one time (more about that later) and they’ve made the playoffs in the same season only three times. Remarkably, they have had winning records in the same season only 10 times.

 it’s absolutely still a rivalry,” longtime Eagles broadcaster Merrill Reese said recently. “It’s still in the division, and it’s still very heated. But little kids in Philadelphia don’t grow up saying,“Oh, ‘Beat the Redskins.’ They’re not America’s Team, and it’s not like the Giants where there have been so many great games between the teams and we all have a friend or neighbor from New York.”

 but there have been some superstars play for both teams and the few exceptions when the Eagles and Redskins have been good at the same time have made for some great stories,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/lane-johnson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Lane Johnson Jersey[/url],All true, with most of them coming during the blustery Buddy Ryan era in Philadelphia.

Reese’s favorite memory from the rivalry came in 1989 when Randall Cunningham signed a five-year extension worth $18 million on a Sunday morning in a Washington hotel suite and that afternoon threw for 447 yards and five touchdowns in an improbable 42-37 Eagles victory at RFK Stadium.

 amazing game,“Amazing,” Reese said.

 6 seconds remaining, they were still down by 37-28. Cunningham connected with Mike Quick for a 2-yard score to get the Eagles within two points,The Eagles trailed by 20-0 and 27-7. With 3 minutes, but the game appeared to be over when Gerald Riggs broke loose for a 58-yard run to the Philadelphia 22 with 90 seconds remaining. The Eagles had no timeouts remaining.

” Washington defensive end Dexter Manley said afterward. “No ifs,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/caleb-sturgis-jersey-authentic]Authentic Caleb Sturgis Jersey[/url], ands or buts about it. I didn’t think there was any way they could beat us. When Riggs broke loose on that big run to give us a first down with a minute and a half left, I turned to (teammate) Darryl Grant and told him that’s it, it’s over. He looked at me,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/malcolm-jenkins-jersey-authentic]Womens Malcolm Jenkins Jersey[/url],“I was positive we had it won, shook his head and said, ‘Wait until it’s over. You never know what can happen.’ And I’ll be damned if he wasn’t right.”

 Raleigh McKenzie. Al Harris scooped up the ball and handed it to Wes Hopkins, who returned it 77 yards to the Washington 4,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/zach-ertz-jersey-authentic]Authentic Zach Ertz Jersey[/url],The sure victory turned into a defeat when Riggs fumbled after running into his own center, setting up Cunningham’s final TD pass of the day to tight end Keith Jackson.

 I almost ran out on the field and tackled him — that’s how stunned I was,“When (Hopkins) started to run with that fumble,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/malcolm-jenkins-jersey-authentic]Authentic Malcolm Jenkins Jersey[/url], Manley said. “I was going to pull a Woody Hayes and nail him. I should have. A penalty would have been better than what happened.”

The Redskins argued to no avail that Harris’ exchange with Hopkins after the fumble recovery was an illegal forward pass.

“This is one of the toughest losses I have ever been a part of,” Washington coach Joe Gibbs said.

 but when Washington went 10-6 and failed to make the playoffs,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/vinny-curry-jersey-authentic]Authentic Vinny Curry Jersey[/url],”It was only the second game of the season, it was that game that Gibbs remembered and blamed.

Two more unforgettable ones would be played the following season.

The game most associated with the rivalry between the teams was played on Nov. 12,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/mychal-kendricks-jersey-authentic]Womens Mychal Kendricks Jersey[/url], 1990. It has a classic nickname: The Body Bag Game.

“The Eagles are having them for lunch and dinner,” Reese said during the radio broadcast.

 but it was the numbers three and nine that stuck out afterward. Three was the number of quarterbacks the Redskins used after the Eagles knocked out starter Jeff Rutledge (fractured thumb) and his backup,The final score of the nationally televised Monday night game at Veterans Stadium was 28-14, Stan Humphries (knee). Rookie running back Brian Mitchell finished the game at quarterback for the Redskins. Nine was the total of Washington players who left the game because of injury.

 if you ask me,” the late Jerome Brown said. “It was like … they just said,“They acted like they didn’t want to play us anymore, ‘Bleep this, let’s get outta here; these mugs ain’t messing around.”

Reese said it was just a matter of the Eagles’ carrying out their coach’s game plan.

” Reese said. “Take out the quarterback. That was the aim of Buddy. Take out the quarterback,“That was Buddy’s plan going into every game, and the rest was easy.”

 either,Take out two when the actual starter — Mark Rypien — wasn’t available, and forget about it.

Washington kick returner Joe Johnson was among the other players who did not return after being knocked unconscious on a kickoff.

“It was a great game,” the coach said. “That was probably one of the best defensive games we’ve played since I’ve been here.”

The Eagles thought that game would help serve as a launching pad for a successful playoff run. Ryan said that if the Eagles had to go on the road for the playoffs, they’d prefer to play in Washington. He boasted that Cunningham was better than Rypien.

 the typically reserved head coach of the Redskins,Reports out of Washington were that Joe Gibbs, was furious with Ryan’s antics.

The first and only playoff meeting between the Eagles and Washington was played on Jan. 5, 1991 at Veterans Stadium. The Eagles scored the game’s first six points on a couple of Roger Ruzek field goals. The Redskins scored the game’s next 20 points. Ryan benched Cunningham in the fourth quarter and inserted Jim McMahon.

It was the Buddy Bagged game. Owner Norman Braman fired Ryan a couple days later.

” Reese said. “It was the last year of Buddy’s contract, and Norman was looking for a reason to fire him. It was very deflating because a lot of us loved Buddy. He was a funny guy,“You knew he was done, and he taught me a lot about the game.”

Opponents tended not to enjoy Ryan’s sense of humor, and Gibbs was high on that list.

 but we knew (Gibbs) had a particular disdain for Buddy Ryan,” former Redskins center Jeff Bostic told the Washington Post after Ryan died last year. “He did not like any coach that was popping off and running his mouth about what his team was going to do. I think he respected Buddy as a coach,“We enjoyed beating everybody, but he just didn’t like all that mouth.”

The Redskins and Eagles have not had winning records in the same season since the turn of the century, but second-place Washington (3-2) comes to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday to face the first-place Eagles (5-1).

“I think they are the best team in the division other than the Eagles,” Reese said. “I think they are extremely dangerous.”

 that there will ever be another Body Bag Game.,Maybe, the rivalry is about to get heated again. It is hard to imagine, just maybe, however
