The Eagles had more to do with an ESPN report than X and O.
Head coach Doug Pederson and players pulled out a report from Josina Anderson of ESPN citing an anonymous player claiming the offense for Carson Wentz too complicated and the quarterback should throw safer check-down passes.
"(The anonymous player) said:" Even Peyton Manning knew when to check it, "Anderson said on Thursday at" NFL Live. "19659002]" Carson Wentz currently has 38% on passes that cover 15m He also has 148 passes to those who are 10 yards or less, and right now he has nine touchdowns and no interceptions on such passes, so I think this is true a striking point. "
Wentz ranks tenth in the ranking of overtaking maneuvers per trial and per football match, and it's not surprising that more of his interception maneuvers have longer passes.
" I've never had Pederson said to reporters on Friday about the check-down proposal, "We do not throw it deep enough and now we're not throwing it short enough. I do not get it.
The Eagles underperformed 3: 3 but are still on par with the Cowboys in the disappointing NFC East.
"It's difficult, because how much merit you put in the person who writes the article and the anonymous" player "addresses," said Zach Ertz on Friday about the latest story. "It could be anyone. I do not know what it is. It could be someone in the front office, it could be a coach, it could be an agent. They did not really care until someone put their name behind it. "
Last year, Anderson reported that an anonymous player thought Wentz had" over-directed "Ertz, and Anderson reported earlier in the week that the anonymous player was upset when the team did not jalen the star cornerback Ramsey landed, which the Jaguars instead sold to the Rams.
"I do not want to talk about it (the report)," said the fighter broad receiver Nelson Agholor. "I do not want to have anything to do with it – if you know me, I respect the game and play it properly, that's how I see it."
Wideout Alshon Jeffery said, "It sounds like a story was invented for me."
Anderson has not publicly responded to the Eagles' comments.
