The Patriots may have already won their preseason tilt with the Philadelphia Eagles, but that has not stopped yet another member of the Eagles from feeling disgruntled in regards to how they were treated by the New England Patriots. Cornerback Cary Williams told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Sunday that he felt the Patriots were “dirty.”
“They came in here talking. They had a lot of jokes and kikis, and laughs, and a lot of dirty plays that were going on. There was a reason behind [why I got in a fight], a reason behind the madness, but at the end of the day I still have to do things the way coach wants me to do them, and I understand that, but it definitely would have been a different situation if it was in Baltimore. It wouldn’t have been a fun practice for the Patriots, I’ll tell you that.”
Having won a ring with the Baltimore Ravens, he felt that had the Ravens felt disrespected by the Patriots, the situation would have played out a little differently.
“It definitely would have been a different situation if it was in Baltimore,” Williams added. “It wouldn’t have been a fun practice for the Patriots, I’ll tell you that.”
Williams signed with the Eagles in the offseason to the tune of a three-year, $17 million deal.
It appears that the Eagles’ still have not moved on from their practices with the Patriots, and when you face 16 teams in the regular season, moving on is key if you want to win football games.
