The Eagles shut Freeney down on Sunday by sending a lot of attention his way. Eventually, it caused Freeney to give up on plays, according to Eagles tight end Brent Celek.
“You can tell,” Celek said Monday on Daily News Live, according to Jordan Raanan. “I even talked to my coach about it today. When we were chipping and blocking Freeney, it was getting to the point where he was ready ready to give up on the field. He was so frustrated and mad.
“You could tell after a few guys hit him, he would just kind of quit on a play.”
