C.J. Gardner Johnson Rips Ex-Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon Over Super Bowl Gameplan In Since Deleted Tweet

There seems to be a lot of animosity between Eagles safety C.J. Gardner Johnson and the team’s former defensive coordinator, Jonathan Gannon.

While speaking to the media on Tuesday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Gannon, who’s now the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, spoke about the Eagles’ Super Bowl collapse in the second half of last month’s devastating 38-35 loss to the Chefs.

“The Chiefs made a lot of good plays in the second half, and we weren’t able to get stops when we needed to,” Gannon said.

“I obviously could have done a lot better job of coaching a couple of things that I wanted out of the calls so, tough to swallow when you look back at that because it’s such a big stage and we didn’t get it done.”


Gardner-Johnson noticed Gannon’s remarks and didn’t hold back criticism of his former coach.

“You ain’t put us in position to make plays,” the 25-year-old defender tweeted Wednesday in a message that has since been deleted.

Although the Eagles are weeks removed from the Super Bowl, the loss still stings for the organization as a whole.
