PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Jordan Matthews had a coming out party on Sunday against the Redskins. The Eagles’ rookie receiver showed fans exactly what all the hype was about.
The promising rookie stopped by The Howie Roseman Show on Monday to discuss the game and his early experiences as a member of the Eagles.
Many people are looking at Sunday’s win as Matthews coming out game, but the Eagles’ receiver is reluctant to look at the game as his “arrival.”
“I always feel like the second you think you’ve arrived, that’s the moment you fall,” Matthews said.
The key for Matthews is to maintain focus and to keep the ultimate goal set on winning. Matthews admitted that despite developing somewhat of a level of comfort in the scheme, he stills takes constant notes in film sessions and is continuing to focus 100% of his attention on football.
He is even holding off on acclimating himself with his new city.
“To be honest, I haven’t really been around too much,” Matthews said of his time in Philadelphia. “I think I’m just like most of these people in this city because I literally go from home to work to home to work.”
That hardworking mentality will definitely come in handy when it comes to Matthews endearing himself to the fans in Philadelphia. He said he may take a little time to venture out during the bye week.
