Every now and then there are teams that are so good they can play a C- or D+ game and still eke out a win. That’s not the case with The Eagles. This team has to operate on all cylinders. That includes special teams, especially special teams. DeSean Jackson on punt returns and Ellis Hobbes on kickoffs have to come up big. The Eagles absolutely can’t allow kickoffs to be returned closed to mid-field. That is a recipe for disaster.
