In this Philadelphia Eagles notebook by Jimmy Kempski, Kempski notes first note is about Barkley’s arm strength (or lack thereof). Kempski is incredibly blunt about Barkley’s arm strength based on one throw in practice, and no matter how true his comments may have been, they seemed a little harsh.
One of the people that took issue Kempski’s column was…Matt Barkley himself. A user posted a link to the column on the Eagles subreddit, and Barkley took exception in hilarious fashion.

Of course, it couldn’t just die there – Kempski responded in the Reddit thread, and Eagles offensive lineman Evan Mathis made a cameo as well.
Reddit – where athletes and the media can have a war of words without any of that nasty “face to face” awkwardness. I love the Internet.
