On Tuesday afternoon, the Eagles Twitterverse was ablaze following the circulation of a Malcolm Jenkins quote, including the surprisingly polarizing line, “You had Nick Foles coming in and obviously that changed a lot of what we did on offensively (sic).” While I was falling asleep on the couch watching Kyle Lowry flop around in Toronto, Jenkins took to Twitter to clap back at those questioning his leadership and choice of words:
We all gotta play better… simple as that.

So there you have it. Jenkins stands by his words and claims that his teammates have heard him voice similar concerns and sentiments. He’s right, by the way. The team has to play better, not only to save their season, but to prevent the cratering of the locker room dynamic. Something tells me this story is far from over.
