Eagles Hall Of Famer ‘Ashamed To Be Associated’ With Team After SNF Tank Job (VIDEO)
The New York Giants were hardly the only ones upset about how the Philadelphia Eagles suddenly stopped playing in their Week 17 game against the Washington Football Team to get themselves a better draft pick.
Eagles Hall of Famer Seth Joyner went off on head coach Doug Pederson and his decisions following the game.
“I have never been more ashamed to be associated with the Philadelphia Eagles than I am tonight,” Joyner, a three-time Pro Bowl linebacker, said on Sunday night. “I would love to be a fly on the wall and stand in that locker room and hear the words of consolation that Doug Pederson has for that football team after what I just witnessed.
“You asked these guys to play injured, you ask them to play hurt, you ask them to give 100 percent effort, you ask them to lay it on the line. And tonight, [Pederson] owed it to this football team, the way those young guys went out and played their behinds off, he owed them the opportunity to win this game.”
