We have come to the conclusion that a fountain of youth does exist. It has to be somewhere in the City of Brotherly Love. Heck, it may even flow through the NovaCare Complex because you're not going to tell us that Philadelphia Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland doesn't know where it is and that some of his players aren't drinking from it.
According to another former Bird who has carved out a nice career in media for himself, Brian Baldinger, Eagles all-world right tackle Lane Johnson will be ready to suit up and start for Philly on Sunday Night Football versus the Miami Dolphins.
Don't take our word for it. Give this one a look for yourself.
You do realize that he was injured less than a week ago, right? No, seriously, you do understand that we were just asking on Monday if he could miss upwards of a month right?
At this point, here's where we are. Lane Johnson is an alien. Jason Peters and Brandon Brooks were aliens, and Jason Kelce is an alien too. There's no other explanation for why these guys keep aging in reverse.
Can Lane Johnson and the vaunted Eagles offensive line lead Philly to a win on Sunday Night Football?
Welp! Here we are friends. The Eagles' first loss is on the ledger, and it came by way of a road loss to the New York Jets. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. Yep, that's what we thought.
Well, there's no time to stew. In Week 7, Philly faces its second AFC East opponent in as many weeks, It's go time versus the Miami Dolphins. Here are two words that we have been tossing around all week... ball control.
We are under the impression that the Fins' high-powered offense can't beat anyone if it's on the sideline. If the Eagles run the ball and dominate time of possession, they will walk out of Week 7 with a victory.
Lane will help Philly do that. This team is better with him than they are without him, and with Cam Jurgens already on the injured reserve, the right side of the -line could use as many hands on deck as possible.
We aren't certain about what the Eagles are feeding these O-linemen, but we can state this with certainty. Whatever it is, we'd like to purchase some. We won't complain, but the game's best O-line has been so for a while because its members, again, are always aging in reverse.
Update: It appears that Lane has confirmed the news to JAKIB Sports mainstay Derrick Gunn. Take a look.
