Five of Carson Wentz's eight incompletions were passes to Nelson Agholor, who was targeted seven times and came up with the ball twice. Wentz didn't miss connections with any of his other receivers more than once.

I don't think he ever stopped stinking, just had a game where we thought there were improvements. Too many plays were he doesn't come up with the ball, no seperation.

I think he could have done better on Wentz' interception, but the pass went to the wrong shoulder - should have further lead him away from the defender instead of leading him to the defender's side. However, I don't remember him dropping any in this game...

Could have "done better?"

He did nothing, so "better" is hardly setting the bar high. He ran a lazy route. Failed to locate the ball, didn't even bother to jump.

Any B rate receiver catches that 50/50 ball. Any C rate receiver at least contests it and watches it fall incomplete.

The throw was less than perfect. But, I like the decision there (assuming low end competence from a professional receiver).

I've always wondered why receivers don't defend "errant" passes. I would much rather an offensive PI penalty than a turnover. Is there a rule that prevents this?

Offensive PI is the rule.

Good receivers do. I think that mathews would have caught or knocked the ball away.

Regardless of whether the ball was thrown poorly--it was but not that poorly--the receiver has to help bail his QB out. Balls aren't perfect every time. NA is a disgrace for as good as he should be. No effort...

Listen here, Buster! Nelson Agolhor... Ahgolor... where ever the fuck that "H" goes, is a hall-of-fame bound receiver, a'ight? Sure, he could have done better there, and sure, he's highly inconsistent... but dang it, hater, how about this play?

Certainly the most frustrating thing about Nelson is his flashes of quality. He's really our only vertical threat, which is likely the primary reason he's on the field.

He doesn't look nearly as explosive as I thought he did during his rookie preseason though.

He gets pretty good separation. He's just infuriatingly inconsistent plucking the ball out of the air. His cuts in and out of breaks are elite.

He caught a ball that hit him in the hands?
