The Philadelphia Eagles got blown out by the Dallas Cowboys and are an absolute mess right now.
Last week, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that an “anonymous source” was critical of Carson Wentz when
Well, with the team being 3-3, obviously, an Eagles source also talked to me about how that offense is functioning.”
“One of the things that they said is: ‘We need to make bleep simpler. Sometimes you just need to handle what is manageable.’ They said: ‘Even Peyton Manning knew when to check it down.’”
Carson Wentz right now is 38% on passes that travel 15 air yards, has three interceptions on passes like that, which is tied for most in the league. He also has 148 passes on those that are 10 yards or fewer. Right now he has nine touchdowns and zero interceptions like that. So I do think it is an apt point.”
The player was also angry the Eagles didn’t trade for Jalen Ramsey.
According to Howard Eskin of Philly Sports Radio WIP, Alshon Jeffrey was the “anonymous source who spoke to Josina Anderson and ripped Wentz.
(It was) Alshon Jeffery. Here’s why he’s foolish and stupid. He knows that she (Josina Anderson) is not out to have his back and the problem as a reporter I’ve seen her(Anderson) do this, she’ll bait a guy and then the guy will get trapped into saying things and he says them and it’s just foolish
This is pretty funny considering just a few days ago Jeffery said he believed the anonymous source story was “made up”
Update: Josina Anderson denies Eskin’s report.
Update #2 Eagles head coach Doug Pederson would not comment on if Jeffery was the source.
