Say Carson Wentz doesn’t run that ball in the end-zone against the Rams. Wentz wins MVP and leads the Eagles to their first ever Super Bowl. Is that a more exciting story then the underdog 2017 Eagles led by Nick Foles?
Joined by Lars Lewis, a fellow Eagles fan and NFL/NCAA Football analyst in Buffalo, the guys discuss what they would have preferred and if Nick Foles did enough to get his jersey retired with the Eagles.
All that, some jersey talk, and more on another installment of the Locked on Eagles podcast!
Positional Preview: Wide Receiver
The Eagles may have the deepest, most dynamic receiving group in franchise history. With an established #1 WR in Alshon Jeffery, an elite slot receiver in Nelson Agholor, a deep threat in Mike Wallace that has gone under the radar in two previous seasons with Baltimore, and two promising youngsters in Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson, the Eagles are locked and loaded at wide receiver now and into the future.
Is Jeffery a true #1? How much of an upgrade with Wallace be over Torrey Smith? Is Shelton Gibson or Mack Hollins the more promising prospect?
We answer all that and more on another edition of the Locked on Eagles podcast!
Positional Preview: Running Back
For the first time since LeSean McCoy was traded, the Eagles have a dynamic backfield heading into training camp with young and experienced bruisers, efficient pass blockers, and pass catchers out of the backfield with Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles manning the position for 2018.
Who will lead the position in carries and touches? What will Darren Sproles’s role be in his final NFL season? In the four-man race for the fourth and likely final RB spot will Matt Jones, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, or Donnel Pumphrey come out on top?
All that and more on another installment of the Locked on Eagles podcast “Positional Preview” edition!
