Maclin Will Be Missed

Posted July 27, 2013

Maclin going down is a big loss to this team and this offense. It now adds pressure on guys like Riley Cooper and Avant to step up. Riley Cooper especially has been a guy who has been able to stick around due to his potential and special teams play, but now he’s going to have to step up and be a guy the Eagles can count on to make plays. As for Maclin this injury could signify his finality as an Eagles. He’s a guy who has over the years had injury problems, but has been a solid receiver. It seemed every year he was expected to have a break out season, but for some reason never reached the next level. I feel bad for Maclin and this is precisely the reason Jackson acted out the way that he did when his contract was in its final year. Players in the circumstances that Maclin was in often are discarded away by the team. If a serviceable replacement rises from out of the roster the Eagles will turn the page from Maclin. Best wishes to Maclin as he goes through this troubling time in his career.
