Full Version: The World According to Darren Sproles
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
"Man, this offense, it's fun, real fun,'' Sproles said. "Because you have so many options every play. The defense has really got to guess right. Everything's spread out, and there are so many holes to exploit. It's like one of them situations where the defense can't always be in the right place. They can't be everywhere.''

Despite Sproles being the league's leading receiver among running backs over the past six seasons (375 receptions, 3,371 yards), Kelly has been adamant in recent weeks that Sproles is a rushing threat first and foremost. He is not being counted on to single-handedly replace the 82 receptions -- and 1,322 receiving yards -- the Eagles lost when they released receiver DeSean Jackson, because the two are different types of players and Sproles can't replicate Jackson's downfield speed.

It will be interesting to see how they use him. I would guess he has less than five carries a game, but five or so receptions per game. If he has more receptions than carries, than he is more of a receiving threat.

But you know, Chip does run the ball, so maybe will use him more there.

Sproles is a matchup nightmare.
