The Eagles don’t have a number one receiver…which is a good thing, because no one’s ever sure who’s getting the lion’s share of the looks.
Three different receivers have led the team over the last three games, each one exploding for over 100 yards.
Outside, it’s been the tandem of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin that has done the damage. Jackson has two 100-yard performances, with Maclin’s six catch, 145-yard performance in Week Five acting as his coming out party.
Outside of them though, it’s slim pickings. Jason Avant has been his usual solid self (11 catches for 123 yards and a TD), but Kevin Curtis has been befallen by injury, and the trio of Reggie Brown, rookie Brandon Gibson, and since-released Hank Baskett, has two catches for 10 yards total.
As for tight ends, it’s been a weird year for Brent Celek. Through four games, he’s the team’s leading receiver with 303 yards.
However, while he’s had a pair of solid games with McNabb at quarterback, both of his dominant, 100-yard games came with Kevin Kolb at the helm.
Celek is still in line for a breakout season, but it doesn’t appear, as of now, to be as great as it looked in those two games.
Alex Smith, meanwhile, has been a great blocker, but hasn’t caught a pass.
