A.J. Brown Puts Dramatic End To Speculation He Wants Out Of Philly & Can’t Stand Jalen Hurts … Are The Eagles A Ticking Time Bomb??

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown has had enough of the noise. 

He’s heard all of the criticism. All of the blame. All of the speculation that he might want out of Philadelphia. 

Deciding to take matters into his own hands, Brown took to the Philly airwaves as he called into ultra-popular sports talk station, WIP to speak the/his truth. 

Brown made it clear that he has no problem with quarterback Jalen Hurts, head coach Nick Sirianni or anybody within the Eagles organization.

“I have no problem. I want to be here, it’s as simple as that,” Brown told WIP. “I love where I’m at, it’s as simple as that. Next question.”

Brown dismissed the rumored friction between he and Hurts, calling it “total B.S.”

“I’m not going to get into me and his relationship on the air. But it’s total B.S., you know what I’m saying?” he said. “It wasn’t a problem when I was on my six-game streak. They wasn’t talking about that then, so they only started talking about that when we started losing,” Brown said.

“Of course, you see friction from everybody, from the coaches, the players and from everybody. So there you go.”

Brown referred to his streak of six consecutive games with over 125 receiving yards, an NFL record, amidst the Eagles turbulent season.

Despite an impressive start record-wise, it was clear that the 2023 Eagles were nowhere near as complete, dangerous or “together” as the 2022 NFC Championship team.

Sure enough, the Birds season went down in ugly fashion – and I mean UGLY fashion.

It’s no secret that Brown didn’t exactly help matters with how he handled things.

He refused to speak to the media for a long stretch of the season and his body language on the field could only be described as piss-poor. 

“I don’t want to talk to them because no matter what I say, you guys are going to make a story and pinpoint it however you want to pinpoint it,” he said of the media. 

Brown frequently launched into temper tantrums on the sidelines. However, he explained that all of his frustrations came from a place of passion.

“I’m the person that you need on the team because I’m willing to hold people accountable and make people around me better, but nobody sees that,” Brown said.

“All you see is the little flare ups and stuff like that and I can honestly say you see the flare ups because nobody in that building works harder than me. Nobody in that building prepares more than me.”

“I can stand on that and say that. That’s why you see the passion … Nobody putting in that time like me I know that for a fact.”

“You see me getting upset on the sideline and you automatically think it’s about targets. No, no, what if I’m holding my players accountable? What if I’m the guy who pushes everybody in the locker room?” he added.

In closing remarks, Brown affirmed his commitment to the Eagles and urged those propagating rumors to reconsider their actions.

“I just want to let Philly know I love ’em, and everybody who’s making those rumors, hey man, you need to find another job,” he said.

For the most part, Brown said all of the right things as he attempted to smooth over the turbulence in Philly.

Now, whether you believe him or not is up to you … There certainly are more than a few people who feel there’s a major disconnect between Brown and Hurts in particular. 

But with plenty of years and money remaining on his contract, it seems like Brown is committed to trying to make it work with his quarterback in Philly. 

What are your thoughts on Brown’s comments?

Do you believe him? … Or do you think he’s just putting lipstick on a pig?

Is there a deeper, almost unfixable problem with the Eagles? … Or can they turn things around next season and get back on track?

There’s no denying Brown is a great player. Yes, he can certainly be a bit of a headache at times. But it seems like his heart is in the right place.

The bigger and much more important question surrounds Jalen Hurts … Is he truly a franchise quarterback??

Do you think this season was just a fluke? … Or have you seen enough cracks to be worried??
