A Sports Quickie To My Philadelphia Eagles

Okay, Eagles, you lost you super deep receiving threat with the season ending injury to DeSean Jackson, but you still must match the deep speed of the Dallas Cowboy’s Amari Cooper to have any chance of winning the NFC East. No, there is no such deep threat to be had on the open market. So what in the world are you to do?

Look, it might sound wild, but you have the answer right under your nose. Rookie Penn State running back, Miles Sanders, has turned out to be a fine receiver out of the backfield, and he is probable an even better open field runner than Cooper. So be bold. Do it. Make Sanders at least a temporary wide receiver. Yes, easier said than done, but you won the Super Bowl with outside the box concepts as daring as this.

A combination of Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Darren Sproles can more than handle the running game. Come on coaches, you got almost two weeks to get this switch up to speed.

Fly Eagles fly.
