Eagles lineman Jason Peters is never one to shy away from giving his opinion about something. A few weeks ago, he pulled himself from a loss to avoid risk of injury and was open about it. He’s at it again, this time in a series of now-deleted Instagram posts ranting about Bengals tackle Andrew Whitworth making the All-Pro team instead of him. Bleeding Green Nation has screenshots of the entire rant, and the transcript is below (each paragraph is from a different post):
Come on man this guy is not better than me it must be politics 1st team all pro bull Shit I take it personal eagle life. [Below a photo of Whitworth]
Man come on be real 1st team all pro who grades this stuff
Going to grind no matter what put any left tackle in Philly and see what happens withworth will not make in Philly
What u mean one bad year. Everybody call this a bad year grade me out and grade them I got hurt but didn’t give up much as him come on man be real I play in philly
Real recognize real eagle life I am done
So there you have it. Since his first All-Pro selection in 2007, Peters has made the team in every season but three. He’s used to making it, but Whitworth played two more games than Peters, and the Bengals had a better offense than Philly.
