Can the Philadelphia Eagles find some help for Miles Sanders? Please!
Does anyone else sit up at night and say to yourself ‘If the Philadelphia Eagles have Miles Sanders, they really don’t need Boston Scott’? Nope? So, you’re saying it’s just a couple of members on our staff and a few Birds enthusiasts on Twitter that believe this? Okay, cool! Just wondering.
Here’s what we all can agree on though. Jason Huntley just can’t play. Believe it or not, he’s still on the active roster along with fellow running backs Sanders, Scott, and Corey Clement.
The Philadelphia Eagles claimed Huntley off of the waivers when the Detroit Lions used a fifth-round selection on him in the most recent NFL Draft and then decided during final cuts that they didn’t want him. That alone should have told the tale. He wasn’t good enough to make the Lions roster?
In the midnight green, he’s appeared in four games as of Week 15, and he’s carried the ball three times for a result of 14 yards. Don’t let that 4.7 yards per rush average fool you. Huntley isn’t anywhere close to being that good.
He’s returned two kickoffs for 36 yards. That’s an astounding 18 yards per return average for all of you math wizards out there. Maybe taking a knee would be better?
It’s hard to understand what Duce Staley is seeing, but in all honesty, the rest of us are drawing blanks. Huntley’s stranglehold on a roster spot creates more questions than answers. One of which is this. What in you know what is wrong with Elijah Holyfield? He can’t even beat this guy out?
