Questions abound as the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for training camp.
At the time of this story being published, July will be drawing to a close, and Philadelphia Eagles training camp will be in full swing. The entire Top 100 Players of 2020 ranking has been released on the NFL Network. Five “Birds” made the list. None cracked the top 50.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve already seen or heard (or both) that Carson Wentz, who plummeted from the third-overall spot in 2018 to the 96th in 2019 didn’t even crack the countdown in 2020, but hey. We’re talking about alpha males that are ultra-competitive. Perhaps the team as a whole will use all of this as motivation. If they do, the rest of the NFL better beware.
In the meantime, more important things have to be ironed out. No one’s proving anything to anybody if there’s no season, and that’s where things get tricky. There was some back and forth about whether or not there would be preseason games. In the end, the NFL Players Association voted there wouldn’t be any. Now, comes another daunting task.
