Davenport: Eagles Don’t Care About Playing the Spoiler Role
With the Eagles eliminated from playoff contention and their final two games versus NFC East Divisional Rivals New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys, the expectation from Philadelphia is they will look to play a Spoiler Role as their next two opponents are looking to lock up playoff seeding.
USA Today Eagles Wire Reporter Turron Davenport joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and discussed what the vibe from the players in the Eagles locker room was like ahead of Thursday Night's game versus the Giants:
"No one cares about playing the Spoiler Role, all these guys want to do it for each other and for themselves, that's what it's really all about, they want to win for their own good. Forget about keep whoever out or whatever situation, the locker room was upbeat today, everybody was joking and just loose and that's what you want in this case. Again it goes back to these guys, all they have to play for is pride and as a man that's something you always want to maintain. So I definitely believe they'll go out and put their best foot forward and they'll play with the best energy and effort they can. It comes down to execution but each of the guys in the locker room seemed very upbeat to me and everybody was willing to spend extra time talking to the media."
