Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill has apologized to coach Doug Pederson for calling the Dallas Cowboys "chokers" earlier in the week, acknowledging that he put his coach "in a hard spot". Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins criticized the call following the game. That said, while the Cowboys could suffer an emotional drop after beating the Saints last week, they're also the better team right now. "I didn't think too much about it".
Pederson made it clear to the third-year player the comments were unnecessary. "It has nothing to do with that We have a ton of respect for Coach (Jason) Garrett. They always choke. So we'll go down there and make them choke".
"I talk to the team a lot about how we don't need to post anything that can be used on other teams' website or bulletin board", Pederson said. We still have to go play.
The reaction around the Cowboys' locker room to Grugier-Hill's comment was mixed.
