D'Andre Swift goes full-scale Superman in his homecoming and unofficial Eagles debut

We're going to call this D’Andre Swift's official debut. Philly's new tailback is brilliant in the home opener.

Yes... Yes... We know. D'Andre Swift's official debut with the Philadelphia Eagles came in Foxborough versus the New England Patriots. We aren't going to acknowledge last week's appearance though. Two targets, a single catch, and one carry? Why would we?

Week 2's performance looked a lot more like what we were expecting from their new tailback... for the most part anyway. He was given a ton of carries. Perhaps too many for a five-foot-nine, 215-pound tailback, but it's hard to argue with the stat line.

Just check it out for yourselves: 28 carries, 175 yards rushing, one rushing touchdown, three receptions, and six yards receiving. It was quite the homecoming for the Philly native. With that being said, we have taken it upon ourselves to take some creative license. We're calling this his REAL debut!

D'Andre Swift puts on his Superman cape and helps lead the Eagles two their second win in as many games.

Philly has their Batman trio: A.J. Brown (Swole Batman), DeVonta Smith (Skinny Batman), and Quez Watkins (Fast Batman). Their 'Justice League' may have found its Superman now.

With his team struggling and with bodies dropping around him (Quez Watkins, Boston Scott), D'Andre Swift rose to the occasion. He threw the 'S' on his chest and balled out when all else failed. How did that work out? Try a career performance on for size.

Great individual performances look even better when they are highlighted by great team wins. The Birds pull one out at home. It wasn't always pretty, but you know how difficult it is to be the victor in an NFL. What's that phrase again? A win is a win.

With that being said, here's our theory. Forget Week 1. We're going to say it gain. We're going to call this D'Andre's unofficial debut in Eagles Green. Heck, at least the coaching staff gave him a fair chance to be successful.
