Colts quarterback Philip Rivers just gave us the worst tackle attempt I might have ever seen from a professional athlete.
In Indianapolis’s game against Baltimore on Sunday the veteran quarterback was trying to stop the Ravens defensive back Chuck Clark from scoring after a fumble. Needless to say, Rivers wasn’t successful and Clark scored.
Rivers looks like a beached whale washing up on shore as he tries to make this tackle.
I know the veteran quarterback isn’t the most athletic guy on the planet, but you would think he could at least stay upright while trying to make a play on a runner.
Rivers had the athletic coordination of a sea turtle on that play. I don’t think I’ve seen a sequence that so greatly exposed someone’s inability to do a basic human function like moving your foot in front of the other until I saw this play from Rivers.
The gunslinger’s ankles stiffed up on him like he had a child lock on them.
He may have never had a chance to make a play on Clark even if his feet worked adequately, but you can at least try to move better than a baby sheep.
C’mon, Rivers, we can’t be going out sad like that.
