2. Consistency is needed from another Philadelphia Eagles star.
At some point, Boston Scott is going to have to show up and deliver for this Eagles team versus someone other than the New York Giants, but it’s hard to deny that, once this five-foot-six tailback gets on a roll and gets the ball in his hands, things happen.
The argument can be made that the coaching staff doesn’t call Scott’s number enough, but based on what everyone’s seen in 2020, what reason have they had to do so other than desperation? Another argument can be made that, whenever the Eagles’ running game struggles, the coaches just give up on it.
Wentz has yet to show any consistency during the first three quarters of any game, but lately, he’s been ‘old reliable’ when the Birds have needed a clutch performance late in games. Just imagine what would happen if he could showcase the same types of performances during all four quarters and he could get some consistency from a few of his skill players? Right now, Scott is one of his more experienced. It would be nice if he could be ‘the guy’.
Take one last look at his game-winning touchdown grab from Week 7.
This Eagles team needs some heavy-hitters n offense. Travis Fulgham appears to be one. Scott might be another. He just needs to prove that he can deliver versus someone other than the Giants. So far that hasn’t happened.
