nbc 10 news. the philadelphia eagles are still reeling from the loss from the bengals and there's been a lot of talk this week. dave is here this morning. it probably stems from two things. zach basically diving and not taking on a line backer. so doug had to respond to it. let's listen to his comment about it. here is what peterson, his response to the issue of effort in his press conference. >> not everybody, and that's the accountability i talk about.
i im -- it's not a panic move or anything like that but make sure everybody is doing things right, do their jobs. do their assignments and good things are going to happen. >> when he was pressed on it later he came back, did everybody go all out and he said no. not really. >> these are tough times. eagles have seven losses in the last nine games. i don't question the effort. i question the energy. i question the urgency and the desperation. you have to play desperate football. for whatever reason they went into cincinnati feeling they could take control of the game against a team that didn't have green and their best running back but it didn't happen. so a rocokie head coach needs t get maximum urgency.
and eeagles didn't play that wa. >> yeah. we'll get back to doug peterson but i want to talk about carson wentz and how it's impacting him in his development. you look at a guy like troy aikman. he didn't have any effect on him and his hall of fame career. how do you see this losing and what it's doing to carson's development as a young quarterback? >> i think he will be a super star quarterback for years to come. i think he has the right mental approach. he is physically gifted. he loves the game of football. the biggest hindrance was the loss of johnson. he can't step into his throws.
we know the receivers are not creating as much separation as we would like to see. it is a tough time for carson. he never experienced this but i like this way he carries himself on a daily basis. i can tell you internally while everyone is questioning the mechanics, i know one coach said to me he has never seen a quarterback at this stage of his career that he has worked with -- and he worked with great ones, who is as far advanced. we just don't see the results right now. >> i think in the long run he will be okay. let's talk about the effect of this losing streak and how it will effect doug peterson. i maintain that 12 games is too small still but the effects of how the players play, they go out there and they get blown out this week and the week after it's not going to go well.
>> no. it's really critical the eagles play well against the washington redskins on sunday. it is also critical that they curb these mistakes they have made, vai. it is the presnap penalties. they are second in the league. in cincinnati four false starts in a stadium that was three quarters empty. it is a sloppy football team. it really caught up to them. >> yeah. a lot of that comes down to coaching. all right. before we go, desean jackson, i think he wants to come back. i think he misses being in philadelphia. he sees there's a young can be who has a cannon for an arm. >> he is a very talented player. he will be a challenge on sunday. knowing jackson he will go where the biggest contract is. it's a money issue with jackson.
>> i don't think he will get the big money that he wants. >> he is 30 years old. >> i think he is still like an -- >> hey, 16 million bucks isn't big money anymore, vai, times have changed. >> i know. >> they will not keep jackson. it will be really interesting to see what happens to him. >> we'll keep our fingers crossed. we would take him. >> that's an endorsement from vai sikahema? >> let's give him a little money and have him come back. thanks for being with us. nbc 10 is your official station of the philadelphia eagles. we are getting read y for sunday's game against the redskins. we'll keep you here for all of the highlights right after nbc 10 at 11:00.

week that's even colder than this one. again, we are setting up in a pattern that is more cold. once in a while we warm up and also precipitation in the middle. that's what we are starting to see in the weekend forecast. saturday it's looking dry. a high of 38 in philadelphia. it is 37 in the lehigh valley. thursday the clouds increase. expect some light rain in the philadelphia, very late in the day or into sunday night. pa suburb, a mixture of rain and snow. lehigh valley a mix of rain and snow, other areas the rain. that's one of a few chances. not big storms we are talking about. there is the wind on friday. we have that late sunday night
