“In Arizona, we had one of the best defenses,” he said. “You look at the results that happened in the Carolina game. It wasn’t because we had bad players. No, our defensive coordinator he didn’t have the common sense to talk to his players to make the adjustments. Because he just wanted to do things his way, those are the results we got, bottom line.”
Woodley is free to call out whomever he pleases, but it’s worth pointing out that entering his final year in Pittsburgh, an unnamed teammate called him out for not taking his job seriously.
“He was awful,” an anonymous Steelers player told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette at the time. “He tells us he works out, but we didn’t see it. He wasn’t in shape. That has to be a reason why he was always hurt.”
In the three seasons since those comments were made, Woodley has played in 27 (of 48) games and managed six sacks. So yeah.
If you were to tell someone that Terron Beckham is a seriously chiseled individual, they probably wouldn’t disagree with you.
Before being invited to a rookie tryout with the Jets over the weekend, the 6-foot, 225-pound running back had been spending most of his time as a personal trainer and fitness model.
With jobs like that, it’s easy to understand why Beckham is ripped: He literally works out all the time.
Meanwhile, Bradford’s agent, Tom Condon, said that the Eagles should have clued Bradford in on their draft plans. Of course, coach Doug Pederson said Bradford was clued in, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.
“[Pederson] told me that he told Bradford and Chase Daniel up front that they were going to draft a quarterback,” Paolantonio said the day after the Eagles drafted Wentz. “And they were going to try to nurture him for the future, and they expected Bradford and Daniel to be part of that, but that this year Bradford would be the starter. And they were shocked when they told Bradford that they were going up to No. 2 and they were making the trade and investing five picks, and Bradford’s reaction was one of anger, and he abruptly walked out of the offseason training program.”
“I want to reiterate our support for Sam Bradford and go back to our statements last week — that Sam is our starting quarterback,” Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said last week. “His agent and Sam know how we feel about him. … We look forward to seeing Sam again in the near future.”
