The Eagles Held Their Very Own Airing of Grievances, of Sorts

Kyle Scott - November 1, 2012

A player source told CBS NFL insider Mike Freeman that the players-only meeting held by the Eagles this week (which quite possibly may have been the most unlikable collection of Philly athletes ever assembled in one place) was “part motivational, part finger pointing, but overall fairly positive.” 

That’s a tad cryptic, and not even a bit surprising, but still it’s another annoying bit of tid from the Eagles. Like, who could even point fingers right now? If all 53 guys stood in front of a huge mirror, dongs out, and pointed at their respective poles, or if they demonstrated colossal feats of strength by beating some sense into each other, then I’d be OK with this. If not, it just sounds like more crybaby bullshit to the rest of us.

    Too late! This should of happened after the devastating loss to Detroit. Andy should not have given the players a week off and addressed this head-on. Instead they get the week off and put a pathetic performance against Atlanta. We’re now 3-4 and the Giants continue pulling off last minute wins. This team is average at best. Big changes needed! I’m afraid that losing is the only way they’ll make them. If that is the case.. I’m ok with losing.

    This is how it happened from an Eagles Insider:
    And at the team meeting, you gather the players around, and tell them all the ways they have disappointed you over the past year! The meeting begins with the Airing of Grievances.
    “I got a lot of problems with you people! And now, you’re gonna hear about it.” yelled one Eagles player.
    “You, linemen. Your plays stinks! You couldn’t block a silk sheet if you had a hot date with a babe…I lost my train of thought.”
    It was real intense.

    The most unlikeable collection of Philly athletes is the understatement of the year. I thought they were pretty unlikeable last year but I was wrong. This group wins the douchebag trophy. Minus McCoy.

    I assume most fingers pointing at Babin and immediately he takes no accountability and blames others.
    I would seriously bet my first born that happened at some point.

    And I’m guessing that the players ending the meeting by holding hands and singing “Kumbaya”. What an unlikable bunch of turds. This season, and the inevitable destruction of the coaching staff and roster can’t come soon enough.

    Someone sent me a forwarded email which said
    ” Eagles lose to the Saints, Reid gets fired”
    the source is a local sports personality.

    I’m thinking the Eagles will have the unfortunate distinctions of not only losing to the Saints, but being the first team NOT to gain 400+ yds on them.
