Philly chef creates sandwich to rip Eagles QB Sam Bradford


With Sam Bradford presumably set to be a member of the Philadelphia Eagles organization for the foreseeable future — much to his reported chagrin — a local chef has created a sandwich to take a pulled-pork potshot at the purported malcontent.

Big Q BBQ proprietor and chef Drew Abruzzese is among those in Eagles Nation unhappy with how Bradford has been conducting himself of late over the team’s decision to trade up in the 2016 NFL Draft to select quarterback Carson Wentz with the second-overall pick.

Bradford’s malcontent attitude became the source of culinary inspiration for Abruzzese, who created a sandwich in (dis)honor that bears the quarterback’s name.

Every ingredient on the sandwich — not to mention the moist towelettes that come with it — were chosen for their respective symbolic meanings.


The pulled pork, for example, represents the inevitability that Bradford is “going to get pulled.” The jalapeños, meanwhile, are symbolic of Bradford being “on the hot seat,” and the potato roll references Bradford’s apparent ability go down “like a sack of potatoes.”

Each order of the Sam Bradford sandwich will come with a moist towelette for cleaning up, though Abruzzese notes that Big Q will provide baby wipes for eaters who need to “take the cleaning up process to the next level.”

The Sam Bradford Sandwich also includes a piece of fried chicken breast, whose symbolism, Abruzzese notes, should be obvious, according to the Philly Voice.

Bradford reportedly was irate with the Eagles’ decision to move up to take Wentz, protesting the move behind the scenes while his agent took to the airwaves to blast the Eagles for their utter disregard for his client.

Abruzzese will give away free Sam Bradford Sandwiches to the Big Q BBQ’s first 150 guests on Wednesday. The item will then be priced at $5 until Bradford is traded. After that, the sandwich will cost $7, a reference to Bradford’s jersey number.
