That’s what Football Outsiders’ “adjusted games lost” metric tells us anyway.The hits mainly came on defense, which we’ll get to soon, but the offense wasn’t immune to the ravages of the NFL regular season. Each year Football Outsiders gives their overall rankings for adjusted games lost (AGL), which showed the Eagles to be the second worst injured team in 2018. They also break it down to offense, defense, and then each individual position group.Before we get to breaking down where the hits came on offense Mike Quick Jerseys 2019 , let’s refresh ourselves on what AGL is measuring:Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s take a look where each offensive unit for the Eagles ranked league-wide.QUARTERBACKEagles AGL Rank: 29thTen teams survived the season without so much as a dent to their starting quarterback. Half of those teams made the playoffs. The Eagles would make a run but they did it the hard way.It’s obvious that Wentz will need to stay healthy if the Eagles are to make a serious run in 2019. This is more true than it’s ever been considering the changes in the quarterback room.Strictly speaking about health, the hope is Wentz proves to be more Matt Stafford than Sam Bradford. Stafford had his two first seasons cut short by knee and shoulder injuries, playing only 13 of 32 games in that span. Bradford completed two of his first three seasons before literally dissolving into a fine powder. Sources tell me to mix Bradford’s bone meal with skeever tail, ectoplasm, or blue dragonfly wing for a killer damage health poison.RUNNING BACKEagles AGL Rank: 31stThose two blows created a confusing stable of running backs with a new “feature” occasionally threatening to emerge, only to ultimately revert back to a pumpkin. According to Pro Football Focus, the replacements graded anywhere from average to poor. Josh Adams Black Chuck Bednarik Jerseys , Corey Clement, and Wendell Smallwood graded 55th, 94th, and 105th out of 137 respectively. Even in their highest rush output of the season - Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts - the film showed three backs that either left meat on the bone or failed to create much on their own or a combination of both.The additions of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders at the very least bring a mix of polish and potential. One positive indicator for better health in 2019 is that Howard has yet to miss a game due to injury as a pro.WIDE RECEIVEREagles AGL Rank: 25thIn the worst year of AGL for wide receivers ever measured, the Eagles were not the exception. Mack Hollins was a ghost and we’re still not sure we aren’t dealing with a Weekend at Bernie’s situation. Alshon Jeffery saved his debut until Week 4 of the regular season after recovering from a torn rotator cuff. Mike Wallace going down in Week 2 robbed the Eagles of their vertical field stretcher.Josh Perkins was contributing significant snaps as an outside receiver early in the season. That should tell you what the Eagles were dealing with at the outset.TIGHT ENDEagles AGL Rank: t-1stWe got one folks! Zach Ertz played his first, full 16-game season as a pro while on his way to setting records. Dallas Goedert did the same without the records but did flash plenty of promise. The aforementioned Perkins essentially tagged out to injured reserve when Richard Rodgers tagged in, but neither received enough snaps to count against the formula.The other team with a perfect 0.0 AGL for the tight end position was the New Orleans Saints. It feels like a good time to note that the Eagles not only took down the third healthiest team (Chicago Bears) in the playoffs, but also took the sixth (Saints) to their limit.OFFENSIVE LINEEagles AGL Rank: 2ndDespite Jason Peters checking in and out of games with a torn biceps and quad injury Chuck Bednarik Jerseys 2019 , he still was able to play in roughly 80% of the offenses snaps. Jason Kelce also battled though a grade II MCL sprain, a broken foot, and a torn elbow to notch 95% of the teams snaps. Lane Johnson registered 88% of the snaps, but dealt with a midseason grade II MCL sprain that hampered him. Brandon Brooks’ torn achilles came with unfortunate timing, happening with six minutes left to play in the first quarter of the Divisional Round tilt with the Saints.All of that goes to show you that the Eagles, while ranking highly, still dealt with a bevy of injuries to key starters. Among other factors, by drafting Andre Dillard and bringing back Stefan Wisniewski the Eagles are in a better spot than they were last year if they have to play with the lineup due to injury.Overall Youth Jake Elliott Jerseys , the Eagles ranked 21st for offensive adjusted games lost. Only two teams - the Los Angeles Chargers (22nd) and the Indianapolis Colts (26th) - suffered more losses and still made the playoffs. Five of the top ten healthiest offenses played extra games last year.On paper it looks like the Eagles are more equipped to handle injuries to the offense this upcoming year. The most important position still remains a serious question mark. Sudfeld could handle a small stretch of spot starter duty if needed, but Wentz needs to be there at the end to finish it off. The rest is a bonus.

EDTShareTweetShareShareDallas sports team accidentally proves that Eagles fans are the bestBill Streicher-USA TODAY SportsA man sitting in the pouring rain to watch a Dallas Stars playoff game on a big screen outside the team’s stadium recently gained a lot of attention. The Stars even praised this man’s dedication on their official Twitter account:Pretty cool, right? Well, I mean, I guess. I don’t really care about the Stars.But wait. That umbrella ... ... is that ...... it is! It’s a Philadelphia Eagles umbrella. As it turns out, this man is a South Jersey native who moved down to Texas.So, just to recap Jake Elliott Jerseys Stitched , a professional sports team in Dallas is using an Eagles fan as proof that they have “the best fans around.” That’s perfect.It’d be even better if Stars fans actually also rooted for the Cowboys. But we all know Cowboys fans are probably rooting for ... hold on, let me google the NHL’s version of a bandwagon team ... the Pittsburgh Penguins? Anyway, shout out to Mr. Friant for repping the Eagles down in Dallas.
