Cullen Jenkins isn’t happy with the Philadelphia Eagles play this season. The big defensive tackle knows championship football from his days in Green Bay. However, he’s not seeing the improvement from game to game needed to be a contender. Frustration is building in Philly with the Eagles, and a 3-3 record isn’t acceptable for a team that has an abundance of talent. Fundamental mistakes the Eagles are making on offense and defense, which at one time fundamental football was a calling card for the Eagles, now is just a distant memory. Jenkins spoke to Michael Barkann and Ike Reese on WIP in Philadelphia.

“Whether we won or not, I was still seeing a lot of the same things going on out there — things that we should be correcting by now. We’re going into the sixth week of the season and you have to start to see the improvement happening and the things that the team needs to be working on or your focus is starting to come together. So I think there has to be more of a sense of urgency on our part to start to get these things corrected and adjusted.”

“We’re definitely still a team. There’s no finger-pointing going on. … As a defense and a defensive line, we look at it as we had an opportunity to win the game at the end and we didn’t. And that’s something that we put on ourselves. … We’re feeling the heat; we’re starting to get a lot of criticism. Everybody wants to talk about the lack of sacks or whatever, and any person that has pride in their job doesn’t want to be critiqued. And we’re putting it on our shoulders to go out there and get this stuff turned around.”
