The Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl in 2017 and did so without starting quarterback Carson Wentz. It’s rather remarkable considering he was an MVP candidate before a knee injury ended his season in December.
But the 25-year-old appears to be making progress in his recovery, and a Week 1 return looks like a distinct possibility.
Smith-Schuster led all rookies with 917 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, despite being the league’s youngest player and seeing the field for under 64 percent of the team’s offensive snaps.
The sky’s the limit for the 21-year-old playmaker, especially now that Martavis Bryant has been shipped out of town.
The Niners enter 2018 surrounded by hype; but if Jimmy G doesn’t deliver, it’ll all be for naught.
With the Legion of Boom no longer what it was—and in the early stages of the post-Richard Sherman era—the Seattle Seahawks are trying to avoid falling behind in the chic NFC West. And the best way to accomplish that might be to make life easier on Russell Wilson.
Cousins’ numbers weren’t as strong as Keenum’s in 2017, but he had far less support from a Redskins team that was crushed by injuries. With more help, he posted a triple-digit passer rating and a league-high 69.8 completion percentage in 2015 before making his first Pro Bowl in 2016.
That’s why the Vikings made him the highest-paid player in NFL history (at least at the time).
This Minnesota team has more potential than last year’s squad, which is scary considering how close that one came to glory.
