2. The Eagles have a ton of weapons on offense and a 17th game.
Okay, let’s do some inventory. There’s been an infusion of positivity with this coaching staff. Sanders will be back. Goedert will be back. Gainwell, Smith, and Grimes are going to be stars. Quez Watkins is someone that you shouldn’t give up on yet, and yes, this Eagles offensive line is getting healthy.
We all get it. 31 receptions, 396 receiving yards, and one touchdown aren’t what anyone wanted for Reagor in year one, but trust us on this one. He’s closer to Brandon Graham (a slow developer) than he is to JJ Arcega-Whiteside.
There’s no way to prove this folks. Much of what is being stated comes from common sense than calculation, but whether you’re on board or not. Another year in this offense by the second-year guys and with the improvements Philly made in the most recent draft, we can make certain guarantees.
The game has changed. The beneficiary is Mr. Reagor. Say it one more time. Create a hashtag. Do whatever. Jalen Reagor is racking up 750 yards and five touchdowns thanks to the fact that help has been added, the fact that he’ll be facing, possibly, every team’s third-best cover guy, and thanks, in part, to the fact that Philly is playing 17 games in 2021.
