Report: Maclin Carted Off, What’s next for the Eagles?

NFC East Huddle

Could be the first major blow in the NFC East. Pro Football Talk, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and other media outlets are reporting Jeremy Maclin was carted off at practice today. Report is that he was unable to put weight on his left leg.

Should this be serious, this has to be a major blow to Chip Kelly’s new offense. Outside of the running backs, the top two wide outs may have been the one of the few bright spots on the Eagle’s offense. With questions at quarterback, any wide receiver problems may be magnified.

Chris Brown (no not that one) of SmartFootball.com and Grantland thinks that Kelly’s offense could end up looking more like the Patriots than the Oregon Ducks:

…among the major moves Kelly made was signing tight end James Casey in free agency and drafting Stanford tight end Zach Ertz, two movable chess pieces to go along…

RGIII is quickly rising to be the face of the future of the NFL. He fails to fit in with a lot of typical stereotypes. Instead of buying the biggest house he could afford, he picked a modest home he and his wife could maintain. The man does not even drink. But would he have a sidepiece? A jumpoff? An oh-darky-thirty-smackdiggity?

I’m also beginning to realize that I have learned just as much about player evaluation during the four months I have spent creating content for this blog.
