Has he been breaking off decent runs that have been negated by penalties? Has he been targeted in the passing game but Wentz has just missed him? These are questions I wish I had answers to. Since I won't be watching the Jets this week, I'll have to make time to watch a little of that Lions/Eagles game and find out for myself.
just reposting here
Eagles fan here. He just hasn't looked good. He is VERY good at getting to the edge fast......but then just does nothing. Can't make guys miss, doesn't see or hit the holes, doesn't seem to have any burst or moves, struggling with protection, everything. Remember, he dealt with a hammy all summer. Maybe it's flared up again? who knows.
It sucks to see this team year after year have no running game, basically since McCoy got ran out of town. Blount and Ajayi were good enough the super bowl year, but nothing spectacular.
