Here’s a list of some offensive guys Philadelphia Eagles fans should be familiar with.
Here’s something that might surprise you. Take a poll among members of the Philadelphia media or among the members of the Eagles fan base, and you might learn that many of them would rather have a 40-plus quarterback in Josh McCown than the current backup, Nate Sudfeld.
One knows what he’s doing. The other doesn’t. Josh McCown hasn’t officially retired yet. Will he wind up on an Eagles roster or someone else’s? One injury can change everything in the NFL.
The rumors of Jason Peters‘ return are flying around even more frequently than they were when the hot topic was whether or not Andre Dillard was ready to take over for the future Hall-of-Famer. Thanks, to the Brandon Brooks injury, the return of “The Bodyguard” is a very real possibility if Philly can figure out the financial aspects of everything.
If you’re not an Eagles fan, you may not know this, but there are a lot of people in the fan base that really don’t like this guy. Why is uncertain. To be frank, Wendell Smallwood really wasn’t that bad of a player for this team.
In 37 career games with 12 starts, Smallwood racked up 903 yards on 229 carries, 414 receiving yards on 50 receptions, and seven total touchdowns. Those numbers include two playoff games and limited duty as he was often asked to share the backfield with other gifted runners. He’s had his injury concerns, but Smallwood can hammer the ball or contribute to the passing game if need be.
The LeSean McCoy and Eagles reunion rumors are ever-present and ever-growing. He’s clearly not the player he once was, and outside of nostalgia, one would have to ask why the contingent to bringing him back to the nest is so strong in numbers.
Ask yourself this. If there was another prospect who had the same type of season that McCoy had in 2018 or 2019, would the fans share the same interest in him?
