Eagles’ Brandon Graham takes chance at Amari Cooper’s body movement
If you can’t manage Brandon Graham’s heat, leave his cooking area
Rivalries in the NFL always add another level of enjoyment to the game. For any group in the NFC East, it’s the reason fans suffer through three hours of agony when the set fulfill on the stadium.
One can’t help but imagine there’s some type of rivalry from players on the field from those particular teams. Either that, or Philadelphia Eagles’ Brandon Graham truly delights in talking smack to Dallas Cowboys large receiver Amari Cooper.
Throughout an interview with ESPN’s Tim McManus, Graham said he noticed Cooper’s body posture looked funky in their Week 8 trip. When seeing the disheveled look, it was game on for the veteran defensive end to get inside the Pro Bowl receiver’s head.
” I understood the rap sheet on him. His body movement is bad, so when you see his body movement [aggravate] I resemble, ‘Oh yeah, I’m about to get him.’ So I began speaking to him,” Graham informed ESPN today. “He was gone. He resembles, man, I can’t wait until Dak Prescott returns. That’s the type of face he had.”
The Eagles would go on to throttle the Cowboys, 29-3 to claim the sole lead of the division.
Graham’s overall production in 2020 will enable him to back up his talk towards anybody. Easily one of the leading players on the roster, if not division, the 32-year-old has actually tallied 7 sacks, 9 tackles for losses and 25 overall stops.
A trash-talker on the field and one off of it, the Eagles are fortunate to have someone with Graham’s talents in the locker room. Sitting at 3-4-1, Philadelphia might require to only win two more games to claim the department title for the second straight season. As the offense looks to rebound with healthy players going back to the lineup, at the least the defense has a veteran system to take apart quarterbacks week in and out.
Led by Graham, possibly we can get him mic ‘d up for every single video game. Who would not desire to hear a few of the finest burns and resurgences the league has to use?
