The giants are 3-7, but the eagles are in turmoil and enter Sunday’s showdown – the victim of injury comes from a blowout loss and asks questions about his franchise quarterback.
The honeymoon in Philadelphia hasn & # 39; t lasted very long after the franchise’s first Super Bowl title last season.
Coach Doug Pederson seemed to suggest quarterback Carson Wentz squeezed on Sunday’s ugly 48-7 loss to the Saints when he said quarterbacks could “start trying things out a bit unkaracteristic of what they’ve done before” when the results are not there.
The question of striking in the hands of the holy questioned Malcolm Jenkins some of his teammates and said that “the team’s experience really disturbed me” and that he “did not feel like a team we had a lot of struggle.”
” I’m talking about ownership quite a bit, and I think some of his comments are directed at him, “said Pederson on Wednesday by Jenkins. “He owns it and I think it sends a message to everyone. We all meet a higher standard and it begins with me. I do not think he addresses it to a particular person. I think it’s a whole , it’s a group, and we all need to make a step for our game. “
Since the manuscripts of the giants in week 6 to even their 3-3 record, the eagles have fought and lost three of their previous four games.
Wentz, a Pro-Bowler a year ago who missed the after-season after worn his left ACL, has not been the same player. He has been intercepted six times and lost five fumbles. Then throwing for three touchdowns against the giants, Wentz has thrown just seven TD passes against five missions in the last month. Against the Saints, Wentz was captured three times and finished 1
9 of 33 passes for 156 meters. Wentz was intercepted three times and ended 19 of 33 passes for 156 meters.
“I did not feel like I was pushing,” Wentz told reporters. “I feel late in the game when we were down to what we were, we just try to play games and try to score points. You can call it pressing, but we really try to play, try to fight. That led to a couple of sales. “
” There are things you need to clean up, be smart when you force them. But I never felt like I was pushing in the game. “
For compound things, Eagles secondary has been severely injured. Start safety Rodney McLeod and cornerback Ronald Darby have been lost for the season, and cornerbacks Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, Jalen Mills and Avonte Maddox are also hurting. None of them practiced Wednesday. It’s not a coincidence that Eagles passport is ranked 25 in the league.
“The season,” said Pederson, “has not gone as we expected to get out of the training camp.”
