“I have to respect and admire the passion, the love, the dedication that guys like this (Garrett Gilbert) are not walking away,” said Pro Football Talk host Mike Florio.

Wednesday morning, Pro Football Talk hosts Mike Florio, and Chris Simms both expressed their respect for Garrett Gilbert and his effort against the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday night when Washington fell to the Eagles 27-17.

“He had his moment last night. And nobody wanted to see him play. (We don’t want this guy. We want Taylor Heinicke. We want Kyle Allen),” continued Florio.

“He had a good enough game, and he had a moment, and now he is going to keep going. He is going to keep going and keep going as long as he physically can.”

Chris Simms echoed Florio, “Good for him (Gilbert). He certainly didn’t look uncomfortable or like a deer in the headlights. What a situation; you barely know the offense, and he came in and really made very few poor decisions. He threw the ball pretty well. I mean, it was all positive. They (Washington) did not lose the game because of him. That is certainly not the case.”

“The defense had some turnovers early, got them a little momentum, but ultimately (like we said), the Eagles are a better team.”
