Philadelphia Eagles fans and the rest of the NFL are going to be surprised by just how good this guy is.
You guys just don’t get it. If all you remember about Nickell Robey-Coleman is he’s the guy that was in on that pass interference call in that NFC Championship Game, you’re truly missing the mark. One of these days, we’re going to look back and we’re going to tell the grandchildren about how Philly signed that slot corner on that one-year deal, and he turned out to be something special.
The additions of Robey-Coleman, Will Parks, and Jatavis Brown in the offseason weren’t splash signings that will grab a ton of headlines, especially when Philly also added Darius Slay and Javon Hargrave, but these guys are going to pay huge dividends in 2020. There’s no way that Robey-Coleman is an 83.
Okay, we love the dude, but Alshon Jeffery and Carson Wentz can’t share the same rating. They get identical ratings of 84 by the EA team. The morale grade or the injury grade or the speed grade should have changed something. If not that, what about the catch-in-traffic or the throw power grade?
Here’s what it comes down to for us. Alshon Jeffery can be very productive when he’s healthy. We just don’t know if he is. He’s definitely on the decline. Carson Wentz, on the other hand, hasn’t reached his peak yet. Put “11” over the 85 mark, and well, in all honesty, we can keep “17” right where he is. 84 sounds about right, at least for right now.
