The Philadelphia Eagles still need consistent playmakers.

Wide Receiver: D+

At the start of this season, the Iggles were supposed to have had DeSean Jackson, Jalen Reagor, Marquise Goodwin, Quez Watkins, John Hightower, J.J Arcega-Whiteside, and Greg Ward all in the offense’s arsenal. Because of COVID-19 and injuries, the Eagles’ offense was back to pretty much, well, no one.

When the receivers started to finally get healthy, their ability to make big plays and get open on a consistent basis wasn’t happening that often. Even with all of the added speed, the Birds’ offense was once again slow and plodding. Hopefully, the young receiving corps can build some consistency in the offseason.

Tight End: C-

Add the Eagles tight end unit to another stout collection of bodies that just seemed to wither away throughout the season. With Zach Ertz looking a step slower, it was time for Dallas Goedert to shine, but due to injury, that didn’t happen either.

You may be able to blame offensive line injuries for opposing defenses being able to keep Goedert contained, but there were still too many makeable plays that they didn’t make. Heck, up until the last few weeks of the season, Richard Rodgers was the leading receiver of the entire grouping.
