While it would make sense to mock an NFL team for doing this, it is Philadelphia, so maybe this is just good form. The security guards for the Philadelphia Eagles took the field this week to practice tackling fans and other intruders who may run amuck during games, according to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. While the living proof is just a far-off video of some people hustling around, Raanan also gave a blow-by-blow account of the event. Security at Lincoln Financial Field running drills (non-football). This is too much. They stretched for this. Doing 5-yd half-speed sprints— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 26, 2013 Practicing taking out field intruders right now. No tackling to ground though. Chip must be running this practice. #eagles— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 26, 2013 This exhibition by on-field security team is priceless. Wonder how you get chosen as a field intruder. I may have found my life's calling— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 26, 2013 Check out a video of the excursion, with a hat tip to USA Today.
