Hasson Riddick knows his debut with the Eagles wasn’t good enough

Haason Reddick’s goal in every game is to do something that helps his team win.

And in his Eagles debut, it didn’t happen.

“At some point, I just feel like I have to make a play that affects the game because that’s what I came here to do,” he said in his wardrobe on Thursday. “At some point in the game, I want to be a factor.

“And while I’ve done some good plays, I’ve done a lot of good things, I don’t think I’ve really made a game-changing game. Everything’s fine. It’s week one. I’m not worried about it. We have 16 more weeks, 16 more chances, and I know that Everything I look forward to achieving will come.”

It was a tough start to the season for Riddick, who signed a three-year, $45 million deal with the Eagles in March.

It’s only one game, but other than a loss to Jamal Williams in the third quarter, Riddick was quiet in the Eagles’ 38-35 win over the Lions.

Pro Football Focus credited him with no stress on 23 passing shots and gave him a Passing Impulse score of 45.4 – 127The tenth-Best of 129 ranked assists passes in the first week.

In all, he played 47 shots and finished with two total tackles, including one for a loss.

“There were some things I did really well, and there were some things I wish I had seen,” he said. “I felt like I left three matches outside that could have affected the match.

“There were a few things I saw after the match that I wish I’d seen during the match, but now that I know what those things are I can focus on that and it will open up a lot of things for me. That’s all I have to do. Just do what I haven’t done the week Past and everything will be fine.

“First week man. Now is the time to settle down, start correcting the little details, the little minor mistakes, and start playing football that is closer to our level.”

Reddick’s personal benchmark is based on 23 bags in the past two years. He’s one of only five players in the NFL to have 10 or more sacks in each of the last two seasons.

But he never got close to Jared Gough on Sunday at Ford Field.

“The standard I hold for myself is higher than any expectations anyone could have,” he said. “I always want to do my best. I always want to show that I am one of the best players. My expectations and my standards are always higher than what the fans can have, as can the coaches.

“So the fact that I didn’t live up to my standard? A lot of people say to me, ‘I played a great game’, this, that and the third. Ah, but I didn’t play to my standard. I didn’t do what I wanted to do. That’s all I focus on. I focus on It’s for Minnesota and then every week to move forward.”

The Eagles’ vaunted defensive line only managed to get one sack against the Lions – it was split between Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham and came into a flop when Goff didn’t initially engage Frank Ragno in the middle.

After last year’s disaster season 29 sacks, Riddick was revived to revive the dying Eagles’ passes.

Yes, it’s only one game, but that wasn’t the start anyone wanted.

“There are a lot of things that go into the topic that fans don’t realize, and fans don’t, but I won’t get into that,” he said.

“The fans will say what they want to say and they will have their own opinions no matter what anyone says. So I wasn’t worried about that. I know he’s Philly, and I know he’s a tough crowd, and I’m not going to let him play me around. The only thing I worry about is playing great football. “.

Riddick will appear at home Monday night against the Vikings at Link, a few miles from where he played high school football in Haddon Heights and the same stadium where he played college football with Temple.

The noise meter will be off the charts, but Reddick will ignore it.

“I won’t get caught up in the hype,” he said. “I’m just focusing now on being better than I was in Week 1. Fixing the things I didn’t do right in Week 1. And that’s all I focus on.

“I’m not going to fall into the trap of, ‘Oh, I’m home. “I’m not going to let these things distract me. I just worry about playing good football for the Philadelphia Eagles.”
