Eagles Chris Polk Ready To Rumble This Season

With a loaded backfield already, Philadelphia Eagles running back Chris Polk made some bold assertions yesterday on Last season he had only 11 carries but scored three touchdowns out of those carries. Polk is more of a straight line, downhill runner. His confidence in his ability with some big-time talent in front of him is pretty refreshing:

I feel like I can be a great factor. We’ll see how it plays out. We have LeSean [McCoy], [Darren] Sproles and myself along with some new guys like [Matthew] Tucker, so, the only thing I can do is control what I can control and that is my effort, attitude and what I put on tape. If I do what i know I’m capable of, then I will be playing

He struggled with a nagging shoulder injury last season which restricted his playing time. This season he feels rested and ready to go. What we are learning from Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is you can never have too many offensive weapons. With three, maybe four running backs this up-coming season promises to be a continuation of last year’s high octane offensive spectacle. And it looks like Polks plans to be right in the middle of it.
