Philadelphia Eagles: 5 Studs, 5 Duds from 2019’s season
Alshon Jeffery, wide receiver
If Alshon Jeffery is, indeed, a part of this team in 2020, he has a long way to go to work his way back into the good graces of Eagles fans (and some of his teammates).
The subject of a firestorm after a blistering accusation by Howard Eskin, one that implicated Jeffery as being the anonymous source that made all of the searing but anonymous statements about Carson Wentz to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Jeffery turned in some of his worst performances as an Eagle.
He seemed uninspired. Both he and Agholor appeared to be on a two-man mission to circumvent anything QB1 was doing, and when both went out with ‘injuries’ (ironically at about the same time), Philly got better on offense without them (and then Jeffery became a weekly cheerleader on social media).
No one can verify this for sure, but on the surface, it seems as though both Jeffery and Agholor were trying to prove that the Eagles couldn’t win without them. If that was the plan, it blew up in both of their faces.
