By now, any conversation that you’ve heard about the Philadelphia Eagles this week probably involved a conversation about that talented but young trio of wide receivers and head coach Nick Sirianni‘s playcalling. DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor scored in Week 1. Reagor scored again in Week 2 (but it didn’t count). Quez Watkins snagged the rare 91-yard reception that didn’t result in a touchdown.

They aren’t quite polished, not yet, but as they work together more often and as they grow up with one another, this group could bring back memories of, dare we say DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Jason Avant.

Yep, we said it! In the meantime, if they need reinforcements, they may have found some, albeit in the coaching staff.

The Philadelphia Eagles leader on the sideline has some hands!

We’ve seen some great stuff from all of the talented wide receivers the NFL has produced throughout its history. We don’t talk about great catches from coaches. Why should we, right? They aren’t on the field.

Maybe the Birds should petition to allow their head coach to run a few routes. Recently, at an Eagles practice session, 6ABC in Philadelphia’s Jeff Skversky channeled his Odell Beckham Jr. Take a look for yourself.

QB1, Jalen Hurts, has a nice set of weapons not only in the aforementioned Smith, Reagor, and Watkins but also in his tailbacks (Miles Sanders, Kenneth Gainwell) and his tight ends (Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert). As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, however, you’ve probably learned that injuries can come at any time though. It’s been part of the deal over the past few seasons.

Might Sirianni get some snaps? Naturally, we’re teasing, but hey, don’t think that Coach wouldn’t do it if he had to.

light. Trending. Can Zach Ertz deliver a huge performance versus Dallas?

As Skversky states here, Nick Sirianni played wideout at Mount Union for the Purple Raiders and won 3 National Championships. He’s also a three-time wide receivers coach (Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers). Who would have thunk? It appears that he still has some of his touch.
