We end this on a positive note. That’s fair right?
Too often in the sporting community, we ask ourselves questions like the following. What if he gets hurt again? What if he isn’t what he used to be? No one gets stronger and faster as they get older, right? Since, Clement’s re-addition, you’ve all probably, no doubt, asked yourselves one of those questions if not all of them.
There are two sides to every coin though, and though those are all very important and very real factors to consider, there are other questions that haven’t been asked as much. What if this man is totally healed? What if he can recapture some of what we saw from him as a rookie? Has anyone stopped to ponder that Clement is only 25 years old?
If getting older has taught you anything, it should be this. Younger people heal faster than old guys. With Miles Sanders and Boston Scott in the fold, Clement won’t be asked to do too much, and that may be just what the doctor ordered (pun intended).
The best-case scenario? Try a max of about ten carries/receptions a game, 100 total touches on the season, somewhere around 500 yards, and four to five scores. Couple that with the production Philly gets from the other members of the backfield, and we could be in for a big year from the Eagles’ committee system in 2020.
