Philadelphia WR Nelson Agholor responds to fan's viral interview from house fire
In one of the more dramatic scenes in recent days, a house fire in the Philadelphia area became well known not only because a local resident caught young children being thrown from the blaze, but that he called out Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor.
“I seen a guy hanging out the window, screaming that his kids were in there,” the resident identified by WPVI as Hakim Laws said as he recounted the events of the night, including him trying to get inside and then becoming overcome by smoke. “My man started throwing babies out the window, and we was catching them, unlike Agholor.”
Laws referred to dropped passes by Agholor during the Eagles’ game with the Detroit Lions, including this one during the Eagles 27-24 loss to the Lions. Agholor, who played in college at Southern Cal, had eight catches for 50 yards and two touchdowns in the game, but he was targeted 12 times.
I wish I had a somewhat feasible reason for why Agholor couldn’t hold onto this.

“Thank you for being a hero in the community, would like to invite you and your family to the next home game. Twitter help me out and get me in touch with him.”
