The Philadelphia Eagles are, seemingly, “Miles” away from settling anything here.
Second-year man, Miles Sanders, might be the best chance the Eagles have had at fielding a three-down starter since LeSean McCoy left. He has the vision you want from a tailback. He has some wiggle. He’s got the burst. The only issue most NFL wizards have with “26” is the one thing it’s impossible to coach him out of.
Nothin can be done about the fact that he’s five-foot-eleven and weighs 211 pounds, meaning he’s an inch shorter than Michael Vick and about the same size physically that Vick was in his playing days. No one wants to see him pound the rock or walk off of the field with an injury as he did in Week 17 of 2019.
Every tailback the Eagles have after him is a question mark.

The Eagles didn’t select a running back in the most recent selection meeting but added two as undrafted free agents. The concern with this group has been the same one for a few weeks now.
They’re void of someone who can hammer the ball and salt games away, and unless they add someone in the coming weeks that we aren’t considering, you have to hope that no one gets injured. Things can go into the tank very quickly if someone does.
