You can keep harping on and on about TDs but I'd be curious to know how many red zone snaps Avant even sees.


1st and 2nd down exist as well as scoring the football.


I'm aware, but as you are or should be aware as well the Eagles look far too often for the big play on 1st and 2nd down. Hence why they find themselves in so many 3rd and longs and have to depend on a guy like Avant in that instance. Avant isn't a dynamic playmaker, he is a reliable safety valve. You wont find him taking the roof off a defense or busting through tackles, but Vick knows where he can find him and he has the most reliable set of hands on the Eagles. Your hatred for him is so hilariously misplaced.


The Eagles are 14th in the NFL in 3rd down conversion percentage and Damaris Johnson has more 3rd down conversions than Avant. Next...


Wow bro, that 4 game sample size is really proving your point.

Anyways, I'm done here as always it is good to be your king. Let me know the next time you want to learn something about Eagles' football.

the 4 game sample size is probably better then the 16 game sample size last season where we were tied for 7th in 3rd down percentage.

See how the Steelers went to the slot receiver to move the ball downfield on that last drive? When was the last time the Eagles have done that? Laughing

Avant makes one catch on 3rd down in a game and he is given a pat on the back as if he accomplished his job for the day. 37 games 2 TDs...


^^^ I tried to post the above in the game day thread but got the "this thread is locked" after hitting the post button. Fitting that someone bumped this thread.

He's reliable and makes those catches, but he should face competition namely from a legit physical redzone option wideout.

"We need to score more points. " ~ Marty Mornhinweg

A quote given today by the slightly competent offensive coordinator. But surely Jason Avant is doing his job with his 2 TDs in 37 games. Rolling Eyes

WE need to score more points....like as a team...not as in each player needs to score more points.

your ability to twist thing is pretty sweet not going to lie....even though your a cowboys fan i still like your arguments about the eagles.

Did you really just call Marty Morhinweg "slighty competent"....?

Well if it wasn't obvious before you clearly have no knowledge of football.

Anyone else remember when PE tried to start this thread in the NFL General Forum and got laughed at and the thread locked?

As long as he is making the catches and getting first downs does it really matter? We will replace Avant in two situations.(3 depending on injury)1: Coaching changes. 2: We find someone better. So yea
