‘Really Good Competition’

ITB: Outlook of Eagles Offense

by

With a new coordinator and a revamped scheme, the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense has plenty of questions to answer ahead of training camp.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher evaluated the state of the team’s offense following the conclusion of mandatory minicamps.

Quarterback

Geoff Mosher: “The offense was inconsistent. I don’t think that should be a surprise to anyone because all three guys are learning a new offense.” 

Adam Caplan: “I loved [Jalen Hurts’] comment in 2022 when he said he wants ownership of the offense, he wants it to be his…this plays to the growing pains of this new scheme. This is year one. Typically the offense is ahead of the defense in OTAs, it is the exact opposite here because it is a completely new offensive scheme.”

Running Back

Mosher: “We sound like a broken record, but they are really trying to get the running back more involved [in the passing game], not just Saquon but all of them.”

Caplan: “Ty Davis-Price is bigger than an average back, Lew Nichols is a bigger back, Kendall Milton is a bigger back, Kenny Gainwell has put size on his thighs. They are no longer a bunch of smaller backs.”

Wide Receiver

Mosher: “It is really clear that if no moves are made, Parris Campbell is the number three.”

Caplan: “They don’t have a four through six…It is all of these young guys plus John Ross. Someone is going to need to emerge once we get to late July and early August.”

Tight End

Mosher: “It is hard to see anybody else than C.J. Uzomah be the number two, but he has to stay healthy and still go out there and have a good camp.”

Caplan: “His total cash is about $1.4 million. They have guaranteed over half of it, so they are kind of counting on him to be the ‘Y’ tight end, which is in-line only. He is there to block.”

Offensive Line

Caplan: “There looks to be really good competition. If (Mekhi) Becton looks the part in training camp, their backups are going to be Becton, (Matt) Hennessy, Fred Johnson for sure, maybe (Max) Scharping.”
