Brandon Graham states the obvious
During Sunday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Football Team, where it looked as if Philly head coach Doug Pederson benched quarterback Jalen Hurts in favor of Nate Sudfeld in an effort to lose and get a better draft pick.
On Monday it was reported that many Eagles’ players weren’t happy about what Pederson did, but it looks like one other player might be OK with it.
During an appearance on the 94WIP Morning Show with Angelo Cataldi, Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive end Brandon Graham had some words for the Giants and their fans.
“Don’t put yourself in that position,” Graham said.
I don’t believe anyone on the Giants is mad about not making the playoffs because the Eagles lost. They know that six wins was not good enough.
The fact of the matter is that the Eagles had a three point lead against Washington and were playing well enough to win. Not to mention that in the third quarter Pederson decided to to not kick a long field goal and went for a fourth and goal and was unsuccessful. So there was six points his team could have scored to take the lead and possibly win. But instead he took out Hurts who had scored both of Philly’s touchdowns.
So I completely agree Graham and so does the Giants as an organization.
