Mosley – The Eagles refused to shake hands with Fletcher Cox, Jets coach Saleh
New York Jets’ linebacker C.J. Mosley is tired of the disrespect.
The Jets initially came out strongly against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. However, they suffered another devastating blow. Mosley also accused the Eagles of being unsportsmanlike even before kickoff.
“It p —– You off,” he stated of the Eagles refusing shake hands after the coin toss, and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox laughing with Jets coach Robert Saleh.
“It’s all about respect. Right now, teams are not respecting us. That’s well-deserved, whether it’s by self-inflicted wounds or by the history of the Jets.”
Although the Jets have struggled for years, they now have a new head coach, and a young quarterback. The expectations were high that this season would be a turnaround.
It looked like the Jets and Eagles were in for a fight after they scored touchdowns on their initial three possessions. But, New York’s performance slowed significantly after the half.
In the third quarter, the Jets had the ball for just 70 seconds — only three plays for 3 yards. The Eagles, on the other hand, had 24 plays totalling 81 yards in the third quarter. This was more than 13:50. Philadelphia held the advantage in possession time, 35:36 to 24,:24.
Mosley stated that he could see and feel the disrespect. Mosley said, “As a competitor and as a warrior fighting with your brothers that p —– you of. It’s been going for a while.
He said, “That’s something which gets under the skin of players,” he added. “When you manage your business well, a team doesn’t have the time to laugh, or for all of that stuff. They’re getting punched in the face. This must be our attitude. We will not be able to do it all.
