Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott
Let’s get something straight before another word is written or uttered, There isn’t a Philadelphia Eagles fan on Planet Earth that doesn’t absolutely love Boston Scott. Heck, correct us if we’re wrong, but it doesn’t seem like this guy has any teammates that don’t like him.
When you hear Nick Sirianni talk about him, he sounds totally satisfied. When you hear Scott’s teammates talk about him, they use words like “inspiration” and “leadership”.
Sure, for Boston Scott to truly take his game to the next level, we’re going to have to see him do what he does in games versus the New York Giants in games where he plays other teams, but before we can even explore any of that, we have to ask a serious question.
Is Boston Scott even going to make this team? It’s a fair question, right?
An argument can be made that, if you rank every Eagles running back right now, Boston Scott is the second guy on the depth chart, but successful arguments can also be made that state, with eight running backs on the roster (Scott, Kenneth Gainwell, Elijah Holyfield, Jordan Howard, Jason Huntley, Kerryon Johnson, Adrian Killins Jr., and Miles Sanders), you can really argue this guy off of the roster.
Sanders is making this team. We know that. Gainwell, one of this team’s draft choices in 2021, might be safe. That would only leave two spots open if Philly kept four guys. Will Scott be one of them? We’ll have to wait and see, but don’t be shocked if he makes this team or if he doesn’t.
