While you’re watching tonight’s Eagles-Steelers exo, you might want to concentrate on how well the Birds offensive line is performing.
Because that will tell you a lot about how far the team will go this season.
The Birds used 14 different line combinations in 16 games last season, injuries to LT Andre Dillard, RG Brandon Brooks and RT Lane Johnson necessitating much of the shuffling.
Dillard is now in a battle with Jordan Mailata to protect the blind side, but the remainder of the unit – including stalwart C Jason Kelce and LG Isaac Seumalo – appears set … for now.
But if it’s not, the likes of second-year QB Jalen Hurts and rookie WR DeVonta Smith won’t likely have many opportunities to revitalize this offense.
