Philadelphia Eagles: Grading every starter on offense
Miles Sanders, running back
A man who calls himself ‘Boobie Miles’ on his Twitter feed makes us all feel like we’ll win if the coach puts him in and lets him spin. Yes, Miles Sanders could stick his foot in the dirt and explode upfield more often, but it’s hard to be too critical of the man who’s been Philly’s lone offensive home-run threat.
Sanders has made plays in the passing game, the running game, and the return game. It’s nice to see a diamond came out of the rough that most call Philly’s 2019 draft class. Now if we could just get some big plays from JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Grade: A
Jordan Howard, running back
Who are we kidding? There’s only one issue with Philly’s usage of Jordan Howard, and that is they haven’t used him as much as they’ve needed to. Grade: A
Carson Wentz, quarterback
Sure, Carson Wentz will make the wrong read sometimes. Outside of Drew Brees and Tom Brady, what quarterback doesn’t? Yes, Wentz will hold on to the ball too long at times, but if we’re going to celebrate the playmaker, we also have to understand that there’s another side to that. There will be sacks.
Wentz has done everything to help his team win, and if the Eagles had ten more guys like him on offense, they would be undefeated right now. They definitely would have caught those game-winning touchdown passes versus the Lions and Atlanta Falcons. Oh, and by the way, has anyone else noticed that he’s been healthy? Grade A
