Justice Ready to Prove his Worth?

Wednesday, May 28, 2008 ·

A number of people around the Eagles organization, including Hugh Douglas, feel that Winston Justice has no heart or the mentality to be a successful player. [Philadelphia Daily News]

If they don't bite when they're puppies, they're not going to bite when they're grown dogs,'' Douglas, the former Eagles Pro Bowl defensive end, said over the phone last night, repeating what he has said about Justice on WIP-610 AM's Morning Show. "It just doesn't look like he has any fight in him. If you look at his demeanor, it's like he's not even a football player.''
Many of Douglas' comments stem back from the September 30 game against the New York Giants when Justice virtually allowed Osi Umenyiora to murder quarterback Donovan McNabb. When asked if Douglas was the first one to question his hurt, he explained that Douglas was the first do it aloud.
There's nothing I can really say,'' Justice said. "The only thing I can do is prove it [isn't true] by my actions . . . There's no need to say anything to him.

"He's not the only one who thinks that. This [season] is my chance to prove him wrong.''
Someone has to let Winston Justice know that he is vital to the Eagles' future success as he will likely be the replacement for either of their aging tackles, Tra Thomas and John Runyan -- well, if he improves his demeanor. Coming out of USC, Winston Justice fell out for the first round because he had character concerns then. Hopefully, something has clicked and changed this year. Justice feels that he has something to prove and let's hope that maturity has checked in.

Justice is currently attending rookie mini-camp has one of the "select veterans." I truly hope that Justice finally comes around.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
