Brooks: If Wentz Is Smart Stop Going To Agholor
In Sunday's win Rookie Quarterback Carson Wentz was not asked to carry the offense as the team tallied 208 Rushing Yards. Wentz was 25 for 36 on Pass Attempts; 3 of those 11 incompletions were directly at fault of Nelson Agholor. The second year receiver was Targeted 5 Times and only hauled in 2 Catches for 7 Receiving Yards. Coming into the game on Sunday Agholor has been Targeted 48 Times and his Catches Per Target Percentage is only 56.3% this season with 27 Catches this season.
Nine-year NFL Offensive Lineman Barrett Brooks of CSN Philly joined The Sports Bash on Monday and discussed why enough is enough with Agholor's poor play:
“If Carson (Wentz) is smart he is going to stop going to him (Agholor); that was a crucial third down drop that he had at the end of the game on just a basic slant route. He gets payed to do that man he should catch that ball; He should catch that ball 9 ½ times out of ten and the fact that he dropped it! I am not trying to hear it was behind him, that is an easy NFL catch, I think I could've caught that ball and I played lineman, my hands are like stone.”
Hear Brooks breakdown why the Eagles Offensive Line has played better over last couple games along with his analysis of the Eagles win over the Falcons in all three aspects of the game
