What The Eagles Would Look Like If They Could Only Use Local Players
This week we have looked at what both the Phillies and Sixers would look like if they could only use local players. The Phillies were a top-heavy mess, with 6-star players and not much else. It turned out a bit better for the Sixers. Not well enough that they would be competing for a championship. Will it go better for the Eagles though? Can we put together a Super Bowl roster made out of guys who come from Eastern Pa, South Jersey, and Delaware?
High school and College Football is nowhere near as big up here as it is down south. Which is why you tend to see a lot of the best Football players hail from those southern states. But that doesn’t mean there is no talent to be found around here. And unlike baseball, Football can actually be played year-round in our area.
The Eagles may actually be the team that wound up with the best roster in this experiment. Not a perfect roster by any means, and there are some big holes. But in this current NFL, with how flawed most teams are, they could maybe make some noise. Their WR, RB, and DL room could even be called elite. They may struggle in pass coverage. But with their edge rushers, QBs won’t have much time to find open WRs. And they will be very hard to run on.
The rules are if you are closer to Philly than any other team’s city, you qualify to play for the Eagles. So even if something feels more like New York territory, or Pittsburgh territory, if you can get into a car and drive to Philly faster than you can get to the other city city, you are an Eagle.
