    So JJ is having an issue picking up the offense. Ah, that makes sense. I havenít looked too much into it but I always kinda wondered why he didnít get more snaps after the lions game.

    Agreed

    Eagles bring back Jordan Matthews

    In situations like that I always wonder, who takes the blame?

    Did Howie misjudge the mental aptitude?
    Is Petersonís offense too complicated?
    Is JJ not putting in the work?

    (And yes I post this knowing not many rookie WRs are productive)

    Dez is saying he will be contacting nfl teams in 2 weeks about his availability. I canít see the Eagles not taking a look at the least . A half a Dez is better then the garbage that is Jordan Matthews .

    I believe it; depressed because he's old/injured and never learned to win with technique, anxious because he can't play at starting level anymore. He was always so good because of his size and athleticism, now he's just a big guy with iffy hands who can't separate.


    CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

    He's on the wrong side of 30 coming off an Achilles injury. Expecting Dez to make a difference at this point in the season isn't happening. At least with Matthews, he presumably knows the system and has a height advantage.

    Though expecting either of these guys to be more than #4 WR roster filler is a pipe dream.

    Would rather have Matthews, without hesitation.

    I think itís a coaching staff thing. I think they donít know how to adapt is my guess.

    Reason being is Tate came in last year and did absolutely nothing because they couldnít figure out how to utilize him. He didnít fit the way they wanted to so he was bunk.

    I feel if heís to replace Alshon then they have zero idea how to get him in differently. Could be JJs issue too being able to learn but going by how the team has had issues getting wide receivers in the flow.

    Matthews is as close to being the last 1,000 yard receiver we've had.

    "I wanna throw it 70 yards to Desean... Give the people what they want."

    Mack Hollins was cheaper.

    Can't be washed up if you were never good to begin with. What a waste to trade up and draft him when they could have stayed up and drafted Robinson.

    I'd say it has more to do with them pigeonholing him into a specific role.

    I agree with this for the most part. I still canít believe that groh said ďI donít know how to use tateĒ... what.. this may be more about groh and the coaching staff than it is about JJ. All reports coming out in the preseason was that JJ was by far exceeding everyoneís expectations and then when the regular season game around he just couldnít stay on the field. Just seems odd. Now does JJ need to put in more mental reps? Probably, but I also think the coaching staff has a lot to do with it too.
