It’s always nice when a professional athlete takes responsibility.
For a DUI.
Or for missing a practice.
Or, in the case of Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson, for playing like a high schooler instead of a pro during the Birds’ embarrassing 20-10 loss to the Cowboys last Sunday at the Linc.
“I don’t even know what to tell you,” Johnson said today. “I’m going to have to go back and look at the film, but no matter what we did, we couldn’t execute. We couldn’t get nothing going. It’s pathetic, and I’m part of it.
“It felt like everything was going wrong. When it rains it pours. I felt like we had a great week of practice. Just got out there and pissed on our leg — I don’t know what to tell you.
“Hats off to the Cowboys’ defense. They were successful with their stunts and rushes. Just felt like whatever we did, we couldn’t get a drive going, couldn’t get no momentum going, no rhythm going. It was just embarrassing. That’s probably the worst offense the Eagles have put up there in a lot of years, so I’m embarrassed.”
