Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night. It’s a move that pretty much everyone expected.
It also means that Nick joins his father and brother as first-round picks. Nick’s father, John, was a first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins back in 1987. Meanwhile, his older brother, Joey, was a top-five selection of the then San Diego Chargers back in 2016.
In responding to this news, Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long had a great take. He also decided to throw some fun shade in his father’s direction.
Of course, he’s talking about Hall of Famer Howie Long going in the second-round of the 1981 NFL Draft to the Raiders. His older brother, Chris, was the No. 2 overall pick of the St. Louis Rams back in 2008.
Knowing Howie, he’ll have some fun with this. But don’t put it past the old man to toss something back in his son’s direction.
126 days after Cody Parkey’s last-second field goal against the Philadelphia Eagles hit the left upright and cross bar, Kyle Long broke the silence.
The Bears haven’t avoided talking about the missed kick. Matt Nagy made it a point of emphasis at rookie minicamp.
But the team has kept it serious and somber when talking about the end of their playoff run. Until Sunday night when the veteran right guard cracked their first public “double doink” joke of the offseason.
He watched Kawhi Leonard of the Toronto Raptors hit a game-winning buzzer-beater in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers with an iconic shot that bounced off of the rim four times.
