Jordan Matthews Hype Explodes After Single Tweet | Eagles Addict

If you’ve been on Twitter any time during the past 24 hours, I’m sure you must have seen a Tweet or two (or a hundred) about Eagles rookie WR Jordan Matthews. Apparently he’s gone from fighting for the third receiver position to being rookie of the year to being the No. 1 Wide Receiver to being a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame when his career is over.

All in the past 24 hours or so.

It never ceases to amaze me how things can instantaneously blow up on Twitter or any other social media. Hey, I’m as excited as the next guy about the potential of Matthews, but I’d like to see him in real action before jumping aboard the hype train.

However, that didn’t stop the Matthews express yesterday. And it all started with this seemingly innocent tweet from Jimmy Kempski, a respected beat writer/blogger for the Eagles…

Kempski is a very knowledgable writer. He understands the game better than many writers out there and it’s why he prefaced his claim with “limited media access” and that it’s OTAs. In other words, he (nor any other writer) hasn’t seen every practice so it’s based on a limited sample.

He also clarified that tweet shortly afterwards by saying:

However, it was too late. The hype train started rolling and gained steam as the day went on…

(1.11, by the way, means 1st Round, pick 11 in a Fantasy Football draft)

But finally, this guy seemed to get it…

I realize this is June and Eagles fans are excited and looking for positives for the upcoming season. Hell, I am too. I’m not trying to derail the hype train here, I’m just saying let’s not blow expectations for the rookie out of proportion.

Ah, screw it. By the time preseason rolls around Matthews will overtake LeSean McCoy as the top Eagle drafted in Fantasy Football and he’ll be working on his HOF speech…
