The Philadelphia Eagles have enjoyed an extremely productive offseason. They’ve acquired star wideout AJ Brown, pass rusher Haason Reddick, and drafted two stud tackles in Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean. All this activity has running back Miles Sanders feeling confident as ever.
Sanders dropped a bold take on the Eagles’ roster for 2022, claiming they have an “All-Star team”. Sound familiar? That’s essentially what Vince Young said in 2011 when he called Philly the “Dream Team” and they ultimately went on to miss the playoffs.
“Oh man. We all feel like we’re on an all-star team, so we feel great,” Sanders said. “We feel unstoppable, I’m not gonna lie. The vibes are great, always have been. Nick Sirianni is doing a great job just keeping the vibes right, the chemistry good. We compete a lot in practice. But we’ve gotta see. It’s gonna come down to camp, taking it day by day, putting everything together.”
You gotta love the belief but it’s a matter of the Eagles putting all the pieces of the puzzle together once the season rolls around. There is no question, they have boatloads of talent, though.
Devonta Smith is coming off a fantastic rookie campaign and should form an unstoppable partnership out wide with Brown, who is easily one of the best WRs in the NFL. Jalen Hurts is also expected to take another step in 2022 after a respectable campaign last year.
As for Sanders, he’ll be looking to improve upon a 754-yard rushing season, running for 5.5 yards per carry. However, Sanders failed to collect a single touchdown. Let’s hope that changes if Philly is indeed going to be an All-Star team.
