NFL will not ban the Eagles perfected ‘tush push’

Over the last two seasons, the Philadelphia Eagles have found sustained offensive success that has featured the heavy usage of the “Tush Push/Brotherly Shove.”

Much speculation lay around the NFL potentially stepping in to ban the use of that quarterback sneak play. However, NFL EVP Troy Vincent has stated that the league won’t ban the move.

“After lengthy discussions [among multiple committees],….leave it alone. The Eagles do it well,” Vincent said via NFL Network‘s Andrew Siciliano.

There was chatter that the play could get banned due to potential safety issues, but it doesn’t appear that garnered much consideration from the league in their decision to allow it.

The play has become a key part of the Eagles’ offensive scheme. No opposing team has been able to find an answer to stop it behind its reported 93.5 percent success rate in 2022 and 90 percent success rate last season.

The play became a huge part in helping Pro Bowler Jalen Hurts set the quarterback single-season record with 15 rushing touchdowns in the 2022 season. That also included him scoring three touchdowns in the Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Although it’s encouraging news for the Eagles to have that play still available in their arsenal, the team experienced offensive struggles elsewhere. Philadelphia stumbled in the second half of the season which resulted in a disappointing wildcard round exit.

Much of this must start with Hurts becoming a much more effective factor under center beyond his ability in the running game.
