Everyone keeps talking wrong things about Jason Peters


I keep listening to it. I keep reading it.

“It doesn’t matter where Jason Peters plays because he will only take a few snacks.”

“JP playing left tackle?” How long, a quarter? ”

“So I think Pryor LT has the option when JP will leave the game in 3Q?”

These are all real tweets and were a ton more, and I think people are “always hurt JP.”

Because it is not right and it is not fair.

This entire JP is always hurt, easily ignoring the fact that everyone on this roster has been hurt over the years.

And JP has played a lot more football for the Eagles than many others who are not constantly mocked for their injuries.

When everyone is hurt, everyone says that training and medical staff should be fired. When JP gets hurt, everyone says that he is too old.

Would you ideally like to deal with a leftist who never misses? Sure. But in any case, many players of this team do not miss taking a picture.

Over the years, Brandon Graham, Malcolm Jenkins, Fletcher Cox and Jason Kelce have been official Ironmen, but it’s not like Peters has ever been out.

The left-hander, who went back this week after starting training camp at right tackle, has started 29 of the 29 regular games in the last two years. Only 10 remaining tackles in the NFL have started more games, and 22 offensive tackles in total.

So he is in the upper third place in his place.

Including the playoffs, JP has started 32 of 32 games in the last two seasons. Only six Eagles have started more – Kelsey, Jenkins, Graham and Cox have all started 35 and Zach Ertz and Brandon Brooks have made 34 starts, and Brooks missed the playoffs last year and indefinitely. Are out again.

Nobody ever says “Len Johnson is as usual.” But Peters has actually played more games than Lane in the last two years.

When Brooks suffers an injury, he is a warrior who is doing all he can to get healthy and make it back before the end of the year. And it’s all true. She is.

When Peters exits the field and tapes him out and brings him back on the field for the next series, he grows old and breaks.

See double-standard?

Let’s look at the past few years:

2018: Peters was one of only eight Eagles to start all 18 games. He only missed more than six snaps in those four games. He was one of 26 NFL tackles to start all 16 regular season games.

2019: Yes, JP lost three games in the middle of the season with a knee injury. But in the last eight games of the season, he played 664 out of 672 snaps – that’s 99 percent.

The irony here is that Peters is here because Brooks is hurt and he is left-handed because Dillard is hurt.

Both Brooks and Dillard will miss more games this year, with Peters having been recalled jointly since 2013, his first year with an Akilis injury.

Where there is always resentment about them?

There is a lot to play here.

In a way, Peters is a victim of his former greatness. That is not all he used to do. He is not there yet. And you can’t expect him to be. He is just 38 years old and when he plays with an above average left tackle instead of a Hall of Famer, he is easy to wash up.

Jason Peters I saw last year, especially down the stretch, is still one of the top dozen leftover tackles in the league.

And if she isn’t there every single picture? If he misses some games here and there? If he shows his age once?

We all need to be able to live with it.

Because I would take Jason Peters 85 percent of the time 100 percent more than the others.
