Eagles left tackle Jason Peters had a difficult game against the Washington Redskins, but he went into defense mode after the game when he was questioned by sports anchor/reporter Jamie Apody of Channel Six.
Peters has struggled all season with holding and motion penalties, but he may have taken things to another level against the Redskins. The guy has become a “walking and talking” momentum killer.
The locker room was nearly cleared out when I walked into the Apody interview of Peters. The big left tackle was talking about the injury to Michael Vick and the change to Kevin Kolb at the quarterback position.
When Apody asked him about how the penalties contributed to the loss, Peters started talking defensively. He disagreed with Apody’s claim that penalties lead to losses.”Ain’t nobody perfect”, he commented.
“I pretty sure that 90% of the teams that won had plenty of penalties”, Peters said while in defense mode.
