No, this is not an Onion article.
One Eagles fan seriously created a Change.org petition to have the Pope bless Sam Bradford’s knees while in town. As weird as it sounds, it may work for the injury poster child of the NFL. Bradford has barely been able to stay on the field as a Ram during his NFL career after being touted as one of the most highly touted QBs to come out of college in decades.

The petition created by Audubon, Philadelphia resident Pratik Patel reads as follows:
The Pope is coming to Philly! Our city! With this Eagles season coming up, a lot of our Super Bowl hopes rely on Sam Bradford’s knees staying healthy. So, with one of the most religious representatives in the world visiting our wonderful place we call home, how about we get him to bless Bradford’s knees during his visit to Philly! This town deserves a Super Bowl, and a healthy Bradford is the only way we will have a parade down Broad Street! Please sign this petition and Go Eagles and Welcome to Philly, Pope Francis!!!!
The petition currently has 330 signatures but for laughters case, we hope it sees many more.
