The running backs. . player. 54. . .

Well, just in case you’re one of those people that thought re-signing Corey Clement was a good idea or that the ‘Birds’ needed to reacquire LeSean McCoy, hopefully, you’ve learned your lesson by now.

Elijah Holyfield and Adrian Killins Jr. are both on the practice squad, and both appear to be better options than anything the Eagles have on the active roster. It doesn’t matter though. This team has shown over and over again that they have no idea about how to evaluate talent or how to develop anyone.  Hey, you noticed that they cut Travis Fulgham before the season right?

And, don’t give us the excuse that he wasn’t this same version of himself in practice. That dude was making plays constantly. Hopefully, Miles Sanders gets healthy sooner rather than later. Grade: C

54. . . . The quarterbacks. . player

Regardless of where you are in the arguments about whether Carson Wentz can play or not, the numbers don’t lie. He’s the worst quarterback in the NFL from a statistical standpoint. His passer rating is awful. He turns the ball over like he’s colorblind, and he seems to be oblivious to the fact that there’s a problem.

Trending. 5 Studs and duds heading into the bye week. light

Unfortunately, Philly is married to this guy. They drafted a quarterback in the second round of 2020’s NFL Draft, but other than running him into a few violent tackles, he hasn’t benefited them much. Believe it or not, regardless of how you slice it, the quarterback position is one of the worst units on Philly’s roster. It hurts to say it, but it’s true. Grade: F
