with PHI having no WRs and a RB controversy brewing in the camp it will bring turmoil to their offense and the lost their best Def player in hugh douglas.
It's not a RB controversy it's competition. Buck should push Staley but Staley will start. Turmoil? Not gonna happen.
The WRs. Pinkston made huge progress last year and he should continue that process. Freddie Mitchell is said to have improved his work ethic and is poised to have a breakout similar to Pinkstons last year (same point in his career and program.) Thrash has been dependable and durable. Add LJ Smith to the picture this year and Andy should be able to use him to open up the passing game a bit more than last year.
These guys aren't the best receiving corps in the league but they are a far cry from having "no WRS" They get the job done.
Hugh Douglas is gone but you'll be hard pressed to find an Eagles fan out there who would say he was our best player. Johnson's D is built around BDawk and he's not going anywhere.
Douglas was a great DE but I can't say I'm unhappy with how things turned out on D overall.
This unit should be a lot faster than last year. That isn't something you want tp see in Jim Johnsons hands.
it's going to be gooood.
