Carson Wentz was the frontrunner for NFL MVP entering Week 11 of the 2017 season, and the Eagles quarterback’s impressive play this year has been mirrored in “Madden NFL 18.”
Two other quarterbacks also have tumbled this season. The Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger (-5 to 86 Overall) and the Panthers’ Cam Newton (-5 to 83 Overall) have struggled at times.
Only a few NFL players have seen their “Madden” ratings plummet dramatically this season. Among those are Ravens safety Eric Weddle (-9 to 84 Overall), Patriots safety Devin McCourty (-9 to 83 Overall) and Raiders linebacker NaVorro Bowman (-10 to 78 Overall).
Thursday, the Giants rallied around their embattled coach, with several calling the players who made those anonymously sourced remarks “cowards,” and one saying they’ll eventually find out who talked.
“But point blank, whoever said that is a coward.”
Linebacker Jonathan Casillas said it’s like having a “rat in the locker room.”
“It sucks that something like that was said,” Casillas told SNY.tv. “Everything is supposed to be in-house, and for something like that to be said is бн I don’t know, it’s like a rat in the locker room. I feel like we’ve got a close-knit group, and I don’t know how something like that could’ve been said. It’s cowardly to do something like that.”
“I have a responsibility to do what’s best for our football team. Although this wasn’t an easy decision, we needed to make this change. We have to play a more efficient brand of football offensively as we begin the final stretch of our season. Mike is an outstanding coach and a great person. He had a lot of opportunities this offseason, and he chose us. I have the utmost respect for Mike and wish him all the best in the future.”
