Head coach Nick Sirianni was asked yesterday about Quez Watkins getting more playing time.
“I think that we have a very talented, young wide receiver corps that that will play itself out. This is just the way this business goes, right? You make plays, we’re going to find ways to get you more plays. You don’t make plays, you’re going to get weeded out of the equation.
“Quez has done a really good job of making plays. There’s no doubt about it. He’s done a great job. I think somebody asked me last week about that. He’s done a great job not just playing with his speed but also playing physical, playing mean, playing tough and going up and getting the ball on contested catches.”
Watkins had 38 snaps on Monday night, third most at the position and more than both Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.
.@Eagles @Mronesx_ looks like he is the best of the young wide receivers after 3 games. He looks to be more than straight line speed. I would be drawing up plays for #16 on the back of pizza boxes at 3am for this WR if I were the #birds coaches. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/9c8Ru0PxYg
