Eagles Week 11 studs and duds as Philadelphia earns its first home win
Philadelphia Eagles Week 11 duds
1. Jalen Reagor, wide receiver
Jalen Reagor was immediately placed on the duds list after fielding a punt inside his own ten-yard line. He just isn’t helping, and now, even when he motions, opposing defenses aren’t even taking that into consideration.
He should also be able to beat Paulson Adebo for a third-down reception at the end of the first half. The fact that he isn’t doing those types of things is just frustrating.
2. Miles Sanders, running back
No one loves Miles Sanders more than we do, Sure, he had some big-time runs, but he also had that fumble that led to the Saints’ first touchdown, and had the officials not blown a play dead prior to the two-minute warning, he may have had two in the first half alone.
3. Josh Sweat, defensive end
Josh Sweat is talented, and we begrudgingly place him on the duds list because we don’t feel he’ll be here long. Still, after signing his extension on September 18th, he’s been relatively quiet. That may be Jonathan Gannon’s fault, but we’ll be keeping an eye on him versus the New York Giants to see how he does.
4. Jonathan Gannon, defensive coordinator
You may have let this guy out of the dog house already, but it’s so hard to trust him. After Philly held the Saints to seven first-half points (and scored 27 points of their own), Gannon went right back to the conservative approach that has allowed this defense to get torched all season.
What happened? They gave up 22 points in the fourth quarter and gave New Orleans unnecessary momentum.
5. Aaron Moorehead, wide receivers coach
No one seems to want to hold this guy accountable. Everyone wants to blame Jalen Reagor for what he’s doing, but if young wide receivers seem to be stagnant in their growth, it’s Aaron Moorehead’s fault. There’s no reason why third-down catches by JJ Arcega-Whiteside should come as a surprise. He isn’t helping these young guys develop.
