What Does Clay Harbor On The Outside Mean?

It obviously means the Eagles aren't that pleased with the production they are getting from their receivers short of Avant, Jackson, and maybe the young kid Salas. It would seem that the other guys are either too raw or just aren't good enough. It seems locks so far are Jackson, Avant, and Johnson. Everyone else looks like they can be had, and if Harbor can play wideout he will most certainly make the team and allow them to carry 4 TE's on the roster. If Harbor can play on the outside it could mean there will be formations with the possibility of 4 TEs playing at the same time. Tomorrow is a big game for Riley Cooper. He's going to have to show that he's worth keeping despite the drama he created. Cooper is going to need to stand out and make a big play or two like he did in practice. So far he and the rest of the other receivers have looked less like indispensable pieces and more like cogs that can be replaced by tight ends.

  • They have no depth and that will be their downfall. The WR corp w/o Maclin is thin. **** jackson off the line of scrimmage and their isnt a single coast to coast WR or RB threat. Thats pretty sad state of affairs.
  • They have four guys on their roster who are coast to coast threats, but that isn't an offense. They need to establish an offense and move the football with it. This quick strike only stuff isn't going to get them anywhere. We have seen it over and over again. When you shut down the deep threat they can be shut down completely. Especially when their quarterbacks only forte is to throw the ball deep.
  • Without looking at the QB I think the need to establish a strong run game. opefully Polk and Brown will e contributing with a physical attack. Otherwise, Vick and Foles will be harrassed all season.
  • Regardless of who the quarterback is they need a strong run game.

  • It isnt even mentioned in Balto. No one cares about Riley Cooper.
  • They're obviously not overly thrilled with their depth here but it seems like they could keep 4 TEs and are hoping Harbor has the versatility to able to play a little outside also.
