Philadelphia Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson called out his former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon on Twitter.
Gardner replied to an interview with Gannon over what went wrong in the Super Bowl. The Eagles defense allowed 38 points to the Chiefs, to fall just a field goal short of winning it all.
The tweet was quickly deleted, but it was already too late.

Gardner played on 100% of the defensive snaps during this game, accounting for four tackles.
Jonathan Gannon, on the other hand, left Philadelphia just two days after the Super Bowl to become the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
The tweet raises questions about the chemistry that Gannon claims to have had with the Eagles.
Additionally, worries surface over Gannon’s ability to make changes when the game is on the line.
A simple yet complicated play ran by Andy Reid and the Chiefs allowed Kansas City to easily get into the end zone on two occasions during the Super Bowl.
Ultimately costing the Eagles the game.

Should this be a concern for the Cardinals?
