    I don't know what imaginary argument you're fighting against. Pages ago I said Clement will probably see 50%-60% of snaps. I don't think anyone has said Clement will be on the field for 80%-90% of plays. Honestly, Clement only needs 40%-45% of snaps to have the opportunity for a great game. Who knows what happens in those plays, but his opportunity is there. The Pederson quote before said that Clement is important to the team, both on offense and special teams. I think Clement will see 50% of snaps and he will get almost all of the snaps that occur in key situations. Anyone that is hoping for a James Conner type percentage of snaps is out of their mind. If the people that think that are who you were addressing, than I agree with you.

    The Pederson quote you have provided is literally disproving your warning to us rather than supporting it.

    You're right. Ajayi and Sproles will get the bulk of touches this week even though they're not playing.

    It's never been more clear to distinguish between those that watch the games and those that look at boxscores/red zone channel/read headlines... If you watch the games it is clear to see that Clement is far and away the most reliable back on this team, and has shown his upside enough times to know he didn't just have a lucky game. Look at the way he gets small behind a blocker, uses his vision and explodes once he finds an opening... Very Westbrook'esque in his running style.

    People keep saying this, but I don't think Pederson is going to be jamming out JAG RBs in the first game Wentz is back from injury. Clement moved his way up the depth chart as an undrafted free agent rookie while Smallwood barely won the 4th RB spot after being around this team for years. I'm sure Doug will rely on the guy he trusts the most and that is Clement. It's not like Clement needs to be James Conner with 90% of touches, he needs 50%-60% of touches to have a great day. We also have to remember that the Eagles WRs are banged up, Clement could be split out a lot in this game. I'm more concerned that Pederson runs a 2 TE set a lot to compensate for the WRs, that would cap Clements ceiling in this game significantly. Clement is also much more matchup proof than Smallwood. I'm not saying Clement is a Todd Gurley level of being matchup proof, but he's the only guy the Eagles have that can be used in all situations.

    Im sure Lurie, Pederson and the dozens of medical professionals responsible for surgically repairing and rehabilitating Wentz are not going to rush a long the timetable on a $150,000,000 QB because Foles went 1-1... I didn't expect him back for another month, but if he's 100% than he's good to go. Waiting extra time doesn't make him 105%, giddy up!

    This makes me feel good since Lombardis only qualification is to ruin football teams. He also had this to say about Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz: “Everyone knows Pederson isn’t a head coach,” Lombardi stated in a radical podcast. “He might be less qualified to coach a team than anyone I’ve seen in my 30-plus years in the NFL. Pederson was barely a coordinator before he became a head coach. Can you imagine if we elected a U.S. President who didn’t have any real training? Sorry, don’t answer that. “Look, the Eagles looked sloppy and increasingly unprepared as the 2016 season limped along. That ain’t changing in ’17. Only [quarterback] Carson Wentz can save Pederson’s job. And Wentz actually got worse during his rookie year, not better.”

    Doug changing his mind is the biggest factor, you're correct. I can't help but think Doug has got to come around. Sproles is 35, coming off a couple of big injuries and just blew a hammy out. The guy can still play, but 10 touches or less is probably his limit. Ajayi has a lot of talent, but he is always getting injured and the team doesn't have any commitment to him after this season. Doug has got to commit to Clement to see if he has a future with the Eagles.

    Crowded in NE, but that could clear out considering Gronk is gonna miss games and Edelman is 32 coming back from an ACL tear.

    Sanders has so far quadrupled his expected numbers. The man is doing fantastic and I hope nothing changes. the dude is a straight up WR1 that was drafted in the 9th. He a baller.

    Are you done waiting?

    Injured? Are you not paying attention?

    No one even knows if it's substance abuse that's the cause of this.

    Smallwood has been around for years on this team and he didn't even have the 4th RB spot secured until after the last pre-season game this year, lol. The only reason why he got the job was because the other RBs fighting for the job all played terribly. Anyone that evens mentions Smallwood should have their opinion discounted because it's clear they have only looked at a piece of paper rather than actually watching games.

    Must be awesome to drink all the time and look like that, lol
