1. The Philadelphia Eagles have some uncertainty at left tackle.
Sometimes, you can get so used to something that you begin to take it for granted. For 11 NFL seasons, unless there was an injury to “The Bodyguard”, the “Birds” haven’t had to worry about the left tackle position.
Jason Peters has protected the blind side of Donovan McNabb, Nick Foles, Sam Bradford, and Carson Wentz and the front side of the left-handed Michael Vick. That means he’s been a part of three coaching tenures (Andy Reid, Chip Kelly, and Doug Pederson). He’s earned seven Pro Bowl nods with the “Birds” and nine total. The run may be over though.
There have been rumors of a possible return, but so far, no dice. That means, as of right now, the duty of stepping into Peters’ Hall-of-Fame cleats fall on the shoulders of the oft-criticized second-year man, Andre Dillard. We won’t get into all of the question marks now, but if you’re an Eagles fan, you’ve heard them.
The goal for Philly in 2020 is the same as it was in 2019, “protect Wentz”. As he goes this offense goes. All of those weapons Philly has added won’t be a factor if he keeps having to peel himself off of the turf.
