2. Reagor is a better second option for the Philadelphia Eagles than a first.

This may come off as being a tad intense, but some guys are what they are. Mike Groh isn’t an an offensive coordinator, and he never was. He’s an excellent wide receivers coach.

Ryan Fitzpatrick isn’ta franchise quarterback. He’s better when he wasn’t gameplanned for and has to step in to relieve someone. Wade Phillips is one heck of a defensive coordinator. NFL teams just have to stop trying to make him a head coach.

What does any of that have to do with the Philadelphia Eagles you ask? It’s simple.

Jalen Reagor is a second option, not a first. He was never meant to take on the other team’s best cover guy. He was meant to stretch defenses, open things up for his teammates underneath, do some damage in the slot, and help on special teams.

There’s nothing wrong with that. That’s okay. Some guys aren’t ‘the guy’. Some guys need to be ‘the other guy’, and that’s where Reagor will find his success.

The Philadelphia Eagles need to find their number-one receiver. That takes the pressure off of Reagor and allows him to just play football. Everything else will take care of itself. That’s a promise.
