But, PHI keeps playing that guy. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/ ... hoNe00.htm
Says Bleeding Green:
"Of course, the problem with benching Agholor is that the Eagles don’t, uh, exactly have many options at receiver. Alshon Jeffery missed Week 11 with an ankle injury and it’s unclear when he’ll return. Jordan Matthews, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and Mack Hollins are the only other receivers on the 53-man roster."
Matthews was released by SF. He was not spectacular. But he still got six targets according to the NFL power rankings that came out today:
"Watching this Eagles offense is like watching a team on a 120-yard field going uphill both ways. But how did it get to this point? A serious dearth of playmakers at wide receiver is one significant reason. Without DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and Alshon Jeffery (ankle), Carson Wentz targeted the following would-be wideouts in a listless 17-10 loss to the Pats on Sunday: Nelson Agholor, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Jordan Matthews and Mack Hollins. Jordan Matthews was targeted six times in a game in 2019. You won't be surprised to learn Matthews finished with one catch for 6 yards. It's on Wentz to find a way to make it work, but the ask was too big against the Patriots. The quarterback will have to raise his game to an elite level to carry the Iggles back to the postseason. A soft schedule in the coming weeks should help."
Eagles dropped two to 13 in said power rankings btw: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... exans-fall
We are not part of said "soft schedule."
They almost have to lean on the running game. Especially if we get run D going, we have a better than usual chance of beating them.
