Remember how Alshon Jeffery wasn’t really making a ton of contested catches at the beginning of the season?

“That’s what he was brought here to do!” everyone shouted in unison.

Opinions varied. Was he not that great? Was he not on the same page as Carson Wentz? Was he not a bona fide WR1?

Well, Jeffery apparently played hurt all year long, according to Ian Rapopopoport:

I love this type of news, you know, the mysterious injury that no one knows about until the post-season surgery.

Keep in mind, Alshon was on a one-year “prove it” deal, which he turned into four years and $52 million. That doesn’t happen if he doesn’t soldier through the early portion of the year with a new team, new offense, and new quarterback.

It culminated in plays like these:

Jeffery finished the regular season with 57 catches for 789 yards and nine touchdowns. In the playoffs, he added 12 grabs for 219 yards, three scores and a Super Bowl ring.

  1. The eagles WR’s played like they were on a mission in the playoffs.

    I still don’t know how Agholar played really well ‘all of a sudden’.
    People wanted him gone after the last 2 years.
    It must have been coaching.

    CB should examine each player on the SB team and talk about their back story and
    how their season went, where they were in the past and how they ended up here.

      1. you’ll have to look in the mirror and keep dreaming of justin timberlake and kinker.

  2. Kevin–do the Eagles at any risk for not disclosing this on injury reports throughout the season?

    1. Yeah ..really. i look forward to the sixers and flyers falling on their
      face and choking for the next 2 years.
      All you weak sisters who are willing to settle for a ‘hope they make the playoffs’
      might be happy though.
