Football A Game Of Inches And Percent of Snaps

A day late, a dollar short
A woe that causes a business deal to abort
In sports the adage might be a percent of snaps missed
A million dollar bonus to be dismissed
Led by quarterback Jim Foles, the defending champs, the Eagles, made it into the playoffs
Their season was a season of peaks of joy and the woes of losing troughs
But on Sunday they beat the Redskins for a spot to clinch
But Foles missed a million dollar bonus by the proverbial inch
He had to have played in 33 percent of the game’s snaps
In order to with his hands around the bonus wrap
Rib injury in the game caused him to leave early the field of play
Percent of snaps halted at 32 percent the bonus went away
Before we shed tears of lament for Foles $1 million bonus lost
He came to the Eagles as a back up last year at a 2 year $11 million cost.
