Even the superstars get cracked for effort
Todd Haley laid into Jarvis Landry for his effort against the Eagles.
Remember the two fades Tyrod Taylor threw juice from the 1-yard line?
The NFL Films cameras showed Landry complaining about being held and Haley didn’t want to hear about it.
He challenged Landry to forget the infractions committed against him, stressing to him that he needed to play the play, regardless.
Later in the episode, Haley is seen jumping on bubble player Derek Willies for not hustling, which Haley brought up to Landry.
He reminded the former Dolphin that he sets the example for the rest of the team and if other players see him not giving maximum effort on a play, they’ll do the same thing.
Haley continues to be one of the starts of ‘Hard Knocks’.
In episode No. 1, he questioned the team’s toughness to head coach Hue Jackson and also had that infamous scene with Antonio Callaway, informing the rookie that the team was going need him (while the gray cloud of Callaway’s legal troubles hung over his head).
Haley also urged Landry to take Callaway under his wing, and in episode No. 4 of ‘Hard Knocks’, the cameras showed Landry reviewing film with the Florida product.
