Thinking About Sproles

Posted: July 21st, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 2 Comments »

It was easy to love Darren Sproles when you watched the flawed and inconsistent Eagles offenses of 2014, 2015 and 2016. Last year was going to be his first chance to play on a really talented unit in Philly. Unfortunately, the Football Gods had other plans. Sproles got hurt early on and missed most of the year.

Crazy as that sounds, it might have been a blessing in disguise. Carson Wentz no longer had his favorite 3rd down target. Wentz had to spread the ball around more. He did just that and the offense thrived in a big way.

I don’t know what to make of the return of Sproles. I think he should be a huge help to the return units. I’m more curious about him on the offense. With Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement back, there won’t be as many chances for Sproles. That’s the obvious point.

But then you watch this…

Sproles can be a dynamic playmaker. The coaches are going to want to make sure they get him involved in the offense, even if he doesn’t have as many touches.

The Eagles got great production from a variety of weapons last year. Adding Sproles to that group could make the offense even more explosive.

It should be fun to see how all of this plays out.

Oh yeah…it will also be fun to once again have a returner who is a weapon. Eagles STs were not exactly a great unit last year.
