Philadelphia Eagles CB Jordan Poyer rips OSU secondary

Philadelphia Eagles rookie Jordan Poyer was not happy with how is alma mater, Oregon State University, performed against the Eastern Washington Eagles last Saturday. Poyer, who was an All-American in 2012 for the Beavers, called up some members of the OSU secondary after the Beavers lost to the FCS Eagles and gave them a piece of his mind.

Sean Martin, who said some of Poyer’s comments weren’t fit to print due to harsh language, shared a bit about the phone call he received:

First he was telling me, ‘Man, I’m embarrassed. I was out watching the game and people were talking so much trash afterward. But then we started talking about the nickel package, and he was telling me some different leverages, how far I should play off the position. He gave me some good insights (

Poyer was right to criticize the way OSU played. Not to take anything away form Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams, who was spectacular, but giving up 411 passing yards to an FCS opponent is unacceptable. Let’s hope Poyer’s speech will help galvanize the weak OSU secondary.
