Eagles get payback on Redskins via Twitter, poke fun at QB situation

The Philadelphia Eagles signed quarterback Tim Tebow in April. Many were skeptical of the team's decision to bring in the former Heisman Trophy winner, especially the Washington Redskins

When the Eagles officially announced the signing of Tebow on Twitter, the Redskins responded by posting a picture of Kermit the Frog sipping hot tea, in the infamous "But That's None of My Buisness" meme. 

The metaphorical jab that the Redskins threw at the Eagles seemed fair at the time, Tebow hadn't taken a snap in the NFL since the 2012 season.

Oh, the irony.

On Saturday, the Redskins announced that quarterback Robert Griffin III wouldn't be cleared to play for the remainder of the preseason after suffering a concussion, threatening the chance that he will would be ready for week one of the regular season. 

This was the perfect moment for the Eagles to throw a jab of their own.

Griffin III might be ousted out of Washington, there are rumors that he will be traded or even cut from the team. The team already named Kirk Cousins as the starter for week one of the regular season.

Whereas Tebow has a decent shot to make the Eagles roster.

Well, Barkley's outperformed Tebow in preseason so far, but... that's none of my business.

Seriously, well done on the call out, Eagles Insider.
