Carson Wentz and The Eagles 2019 OffensIve Weapons

The 2019 Eagles offense has the potential to be the most explosive attack that Doug Pederson has ever coached.   Everything revolves around Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.  In the 2017 season, Wentz was playing at a MVP level for a 12-2 Eagles team before he suffered an ACL tear vs. the Rams.  Wentz is totally healthy again this spring and he has been reading defenses and back to throwing the ball at that MVP level during the team’s recent OTA workouts.

Wentz is throwing the ball with zip on it.  His arm looks strong and his legs look just as fit.  He’s moving well and looking like a great young quarterback getting ready for the upcoming season.   Wentz is playing with confidence.  He reads the coverage before he takes the snap and zip, the ball is on its way to the open receiver after the snap of the football.

Opposing defenses have their work cut out for them because Wentz is seasoned.  He knows what to expect and he’s ready to make whatever adjustment is needed.

The former North Dakota State star has an awesome array of receivers to throw the ball to this season. The key to a successful year for Wentz will be staying healthy.  He must learn to abandon bad plays when appropriate by either throwing the ball to a running back on a short check down route, throwing the ball away or getting on the ground.  Wentz must also learn to slide when scrambling.

The young fourth year quarterback has one of the league’s best deep threats in DeSean Jackson returning to Philly after stints in Washington and Tampa Bay.  Jackson, who led the NFL last year with an average of 18.9 yards per catch, creates the deep ball threat on nearly every play for the Eagles. Safeties must know where he lines up on each time the Birds come to the line of scrimmage, then they must back up, in order to stop him from getting behind them.  He will give the other receivers more room underneath to operate.

I love the way Wentz and Jackson are working together during the workouts.  We have been getting the chance to see Jackson running intermediate routes.  He runs a crossing route with the receivers to the front side fo the play running their defenders off.  You can see Jackson still has those jets, he can still cover ground like lightning.

At the other starting wide receiver positions, Carson will have a big target in Alshon Jeffery and a speedy multi-talented target in Nelson Agholor.  Jeffery, who stands 6’4”, has no problem going up in a crowd over the middle and coming down with the football.  He has a huge catch radius and is especially tough to stop on third downs and in the red zone.   Agholor can get open underneath with his quickness and outrun coverage downfield to get free for the deep ball.   Rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is another target Wentz will have at his disposal and he’s great at catching the 50/50 ball in the end zone.  He caught 14 touchdown passes last season at Stanford.

Pro Bowl record-setting tight end Zach Ertz and talented second year tight end Dallas Goedert form one of the best tight end combos in the league.   Ertz seems to be open on every play.  He set a NFL record last season of pass catches by a tight end in a season with 116.   This year you can expect Goedert to be much more involved and it will make them nearly impossible to stop.  The Birds will utilize plenty of 12 personnel or two tight end formations with Wentz deciding at the line of scrimmage whether to run or pass the football.  Defenses will be forced to pick their poison. They can watch the Eagles throw the ball to Ertz and Goedert against their linebackers in regular defense or watch the Eagles run the ball behind 6’5” 250 pound Ertz and 6’5” 255 pound Goedert while they are blocking their defensive backs in nickel and dime defenses.

Wentz will be leading a balanced offense because the Birds will have a solid running game with a restocked running back group.  It will likely be led by the tough and physical 225 pound Jordan Howard, who was acquired in a trade with the Bears and he has run for about a 1000 yards in each his three NFL seasons.  He’s basically an inside and off tackle running back, who has been doing a good job catching the football during OTA’s.

Howard will be sharing time with former Penn State star and 2ndround pick Miles Sanders, who is faster and quicker.  The Eagles will try to give the playmaking Sanders open field opportunities with outside runs, draws and screens.   Right now Boston Scott, who was signed last year by the Eagles off of the New Orleans Saints practice squad, appears to be in the position to be the Birds third down back and punt returner.  He’s in position to take over for Darren Sproles, who seems likely to retire and Corey Clement, who hasn’t been able to practice.   Howard will be on the field for third down short yardage plays.  Scott has been the best pass receiver of the group and he’s quick and adept at running draws, screens and routes downfield.   Clement, Josh Adams and Wendell Smallwood will battle for the fourth running back spot.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson will have Wentz and their explosive passing offense on the attack at the start of games.  They will try to build a lead, then rely on their defense and running game to put the game away in the fourth quarter.  Don’t be surprised if Wentz and the Birds win the NFC East.  Once they do that, they’ll be a couple of games away from a Super Bowl appearance.  They have the weapons to win it all again.

Great article, G! Glad the Eagles gave the Offense some love this offseason. Last year, they were anemic on that side of the ball. DJax is a game changer. I think Sanders will be a pleasant surprise. Tell Clement he can’t make the club from the tub.

Mike Wallace was a good pick up last year who is just as productive as DJAX– dude got hurt so its not like they ignored last off season–
I like the rook WR– obviously drafted specifically for Wentz as was Goeddard last year– funny the dummy draft guys on here weren’t thrilled with the WR this year– I think he fits Carson hand in glove

Should be an Exciting Season for the Eagles Offense and Team in general. Besides Wentz remaining Healthy, the Big Question on this Team is the Interior Depth of the OL which made the late re-signing on S Wisnewski really a no-brainer for having some Experience and Security, Familiarity around in case of an injury
I think the RB Room is much Stronger with Jordan,Sanders and should be a Real Battle between Clement,Smallwood, Adams and Boston who appears to be able to add some Special Teams Return Skills
to his Game will be fun to watch unfold
Battle for 2nd/3rd QB , Battles for Back-up OT & OL
Battles for the 3rd String TE behind Ertz/Goedart will be good (Eagles should Call the Patriots and offer them Richard Rogers for a Draft 2020 Pick)
Battles at the 5th/6th WR Positions where it will be down to whoever can be consistent, get the Playbook Down and be able to Contribute on Special Teams..

Competition, which is what Sport is all about, and come Late August, the Eagles will be Cutting some pretty Good Players to make the their 53 Man Roster …

and of course watching the Return of WR D-Jax and a legitimate Deep Threat that they haven’t had since his left which should open up a lot of 1 on 1 Match-Ups for the TE’s/Slot and RB’s coming out of the Backfield
Slot WR Agholor should have a lot of room underneath in which to operate, Can he make some big Plays, break a tackle here or there and take a 5-7 Yard Pass for 20 Yards.. He’s coming into his Contract Year and will be in great position to put up some Big Stats this Season to help the Team ad Himself for next Off-Season

The only concern that I have is if Center Jason Kelce sustains any type of Serious Injury, He’s really the Glue and the Leader of that OL and of course if anything would happen to Wentz would be a huge blow to the Team without having the security blanket that Nick Foles provided .. But If Wentz Stays Healthy and Guard Brooks makes it back 100% by early Season, then the Eagles should Win 11-12 Games and Win the NFC East and battle for a Top #1 or #2 Seed in the NFC

June 6, 2019 4:26 pm

The same can be said for ANY NFL TEAM IN REGARDS TO INJURY- there are key players on all 32 teams that if they suffer an injury the next man up is a question mark– its the 53 man roster thing…Howie is good at building a deep roster.
