Eagles tackle Todd Herremans told CSN Philly that he had a hard time dealing with a pair of early holding calls against the Giants, and he struggled throughout the first half on Sunday night. He managed to straighten things out in the second half, and the Eagles ended up defeating the Giants, 19-17.
Herremans wasn't happy with his performance during the first half in the Week 4 victory, and he had the following to say to CSN Philly about it:
"Yeah, I was pretty pissed off. I was mad at myself. I was happy we won but I was just upset at myself."
Head coach Andy Reid had some comments about Herremans' play as well, more or less acknowledging the player's assessment of his game:
"That probably wasn’t his best game. He normally makes adjustments and fixes things. It wasn’t his best game."
The tackle didn't seem too concerned that his struggles against the Giants will carry over into Week 5, and had the following to say about the upcoming game:
"I know how to play football, obviously. I’ve been doing it for awhile. It’s just stuff like that shouldn’t happen this late in my career. It did and I just gotta fix it and keep going."
Herremans and the Eagles will try to get to 4-1 on Sunday when they head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. The Steelers enter at 1-2, but they'll probably be getting linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu back for the game.
The game will kick off at 1 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX.
