The Northwestern players could also be heard saying Rece Davis’ name repeatedly as they ran off the field.

That’s in response to ESPN analyst Joey Galloway saying earlier in the week on television that Northwestern has “a bunch of Rece Davises out there running around.”

Davis — the ESPN studio host — jokingly responded, “High-level athletes then, huh?”

To which Galloway responded while laughing, “Yeah, very athletic, Rece.”

In addition to the Fighting Rece Davis jokes, Fitzgerald told the media after the game that he thought Galloway’s comments “were incredibly disrespectful,” and said the comments “really ticked our guys off.”

“I mean, that really ticked our guys off; I’m not gonna lie to you. It was, I thought, incredibly disrespectful. That is what it is. It’s not the first time. I just talked to the guys about putting fuel in their engine, man. Just use that as fuel in the engine and just go out and play the way we’re capable. We’ve got really, really good football players. We’ve got outstanding football players, in my opinion. We’ve got a bunch of guys who are going to be potentially All-Big 10, potentially All-American, and potentially in the NFL.”

Naturally, Galloway was asked to respond while doing ESPN studio work on Saturday: “Let me say this: Rece Davis is a pretty good athlete. And he’s smart.”

Doug Pederson seat getting hotter as Eagles put up another stinker .
To be fair, not all of this is on Pederson. Heck, Wentz deserves a lot of the blame. His accuracy has just not been up to snuff thus far this season. He’s also not seeing the field as well as in the past, leading to struggles throwing from the pocket.It’s also important to note that the Eagles have dealt with numerous injuries to their offensive line and at the skill positions. Missing the likes of Lane Johnson, Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery for multiple games has not helped matters at all.These are excuses.
