7 Eagles narratives that must be tossed out with the garbage before final eight games

We're not ready to buy into everything we're hearing about the Eagles.

Dallas Goedert is the only Eagles tight end with some offensive ability.

We'd love to tell you that losing Dallas Goedert hurts this offense. Common sense tells us that it should. He's one of the most versatile and best tight ends in all of pro football. Then again, he missed five games last season, and the Birds were undefeated without him.

It was during those five games that we saw DeVonta Smith take off in 2022. Maybe this season, we see more of Julio Jones (and, hopefully, a throwback to the glory days). Maybe we learn those other tight ends can ball. The Birds actually have some talent at the position, but no one gives these guys any credit.

If Grant Calcaterra is ready, he can give the offense another target, one we have seen make a play or two in the past. Jack Stoll has proven he can be sure-handed if something catchable is tossed in his direction. We still don't know if we're correctly pronouncing Albert Okwuegbunam correctly, but he's a professional football player. Throw him in the water. See if he can swim.

Albert O. looks the part of a tight end. He's six-foot-five and tips the scales at 258 pounds. If we find out he actually plays like one, the Birds might have found another weapon.
