Eagles OT Todd Herremans was a guest on Tuesday’s “Cover Two Podcast,” shedding some light on what’s gone wrong in Philadelphia while providing a teammate’s perspective on the benching of WR DeSean Jackson.
“A lot of people might look at De Sean and think he’s very selfish, but he’s not,” Herremans said. “DeSean is one of the best teammates you can have. When he’s on the field, there’s nothing more that he wants but to win.
“There’s a lot going on outside of the actual game for him this year that I don’t know the ins and outs of, but I don’t really think he’s in trouble of losing the locker room. He’s on our squad, he’s still our little brother and he’s going to go out there to help us win some games the rest of the year.
“As far as getting benched, I’ve been benched a couple times. Coach (Andy) Reid doesn’t treat anybody differently from his superstar wide receiver to his underrated offensive lineman. One of the things Coach Reid hammers on is the little things. You lose five games and certain things start slipping, like showing up late to a meeting to not coming to the meeting at all. He’s going to make an example of that.”
Herremans also shared his thoughts on his former position coach, Juan Castillo, who’s now the Eagles’ much-maligned defensive coordinator.
