2. This is the best supporting cast the Philadelphia Eagles have given Wentz (for real this time).
If we’re comparing apples to oranges, Philly’s offense in 2020 might be better than the one we saw win the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the end of the 2017-2018 campaign. Sure, you’ve all heard that before. That was one of the themes during last year’s preseason when the buzz that came with reacquiring DeSean Jackson got fans talking. Zach Ertz had no issues with sharing his excitement.
He went so far as to call the 2019 Eagles “one of the most talented teams (he’s) been on from top to bottom“. Then, as fate would have it, everybody started getting hurt.

Fast forward. and here we are. The Eagles have two of the top ten tight ends in the NFL. The offensive line is more seasoned but identical to the one that won the Built Ford Tough Offensive Line of the Year Award on the night before Super Bowl 52, minus the presence of a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee at left tackle.
Alshon Jeffery, who was also on that roster, figures to be here. So does DeSean Jackson. There’s also Miles Sanders and Boston Scott in the backfield and new explosive targets for Philly’s franchise quarterback like Marquise Goodwin, a steadily improving Greg Ward, and the rookie, Jalen Reagor.
The only thing this Eagles offense seems to be missing is its own version of LeGarrette Blount, a bruiser. Other than that, this may truly be one of the best Eagles offenses we’ve seen from top to bottom. 34 touchdown passes should be very attainable for Carson Wentz. He’s also going to be directed by a nice crop of coaches.
