    I hope Cooper is able to step it up a notch in this offense. Maclin is a more gifted player, but I think Cooper is clearly more physical in his style of play. Hopefully this new offense will fit him better and he’ll be able to shine.

  • Dominik

    “It felt like I had a pretty good end of the year, so I’m gonna play that way for hopefully the whole season.”

    Self-confidence is critical for a professional athlete, but Cooper better be ready to take 4 or 5 steps forward if he wants that starting job. “THAT WAY for hopefully the whole season” is not even close of being acceptable, because he played poor last season, even when he got more snaps and more rhythm. I don’t care about his 3 TDs, I care about the stats projected for a whole season: 43 catches and 471 yards – Sheil calls that, diplomatically like he always is, pedestrian, I call it lousy.

  • ICDogg

    Big receiver who doesn’t play big. So far I’ve not been impressed with Cooper’s performance.

    I’m tempted to try Ertz as the X receiver.

  • eaglefandwnsouth

    I would rather have Benn speed and physically

    • JofreyRice

      I’m kinda hoping for Door #3–without really knowing what that will be. Benn’s best season so far is what Sheil called “pedestrian” as a projection for Cooper. I see him & Cooper pretty similarly. Nice frames for the position, but something is just missing.

  • Dutch

    Cooper is a step up in replacing Maclin so long as his primary responsibilities is blocking.

    Cooper isn’t an adequate replacement in an offense for Maclin, Maclin’s role could only be filled by someone like Fitzgerald, or Calvin Johnson. There is no way Riley Cooper commands the same respect from defensive coordinators that Maclin does. Even now without drawing attention from defenders, Cooper hasn’t produced when giving opportunity. Cooper is often associated with being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When something bad happens down field Cooper is in the vicinity.

    The Eagles if serious are going to have to look other places to fill Maclin’s production and effect on opposing defenses.

  • Dutch

    Wow, similar post. Good to see fans aren’t letting Roseman pull the wool over their eyes. Roseman set up all yesterday in comments to the media his reasoning why the Eagles, who are $30 Million or so under the cap, aren’t going out to find a comparable talent to replace Maclin.

      Who is available that you have to grab now? We see all the time where teams will wait toward the end of TC to bring in vets that aren’t going anywhere or players that are cut from other rosters so at the very least they can give their current guys some extra reps and really see what they can do.

      • Richard Colton

        Brandon Lloyd, TO, Randy Moss. You want any of that slop? No, me neither.

  • aub32

    I kept saying that Cooper would be the primary guy if one of our outside WRs went down, and that’s why he was in a better position than Avant. Now with Maclin out they may both make the team.

  • JofreyRice

    In the words of Joel Buchsbaum: “Looks like Tarzan, but plays like Jane”.

    • Dominik

      Great one!

      lol.

      Ouch.

  • docboy

    I like to see what Momah can bring to the table.. he is so intriguing…

  • EaglePete

    Cooper just doesnt look quick enough, nor does his route running look like it makes the grade. It seems hes always reaching for a catch and the defender is right there playing tight. Its never an easy catch with him, never space to run either. Just seems really limited. Heres hoping a younger guy works hard and makes some noise to earn more reps.

  • Richard Colton

    as long as you love the hair. it’s majestic.

  • NickS1

    Agreed. Another big bodied target for the red zone is alright in my book. Obviously it would be nice to seem some improvement in other areas of his game, though.

  • Richard Colton

    it’s 2013…even in the Delta. You wouldn’t be getting the 1998 Randy Moss or the 2002 TO. If these guys were the answer, why haven’t they been signed by anyone? B Lloyd has been on 5 teams in 6 years. If he’s such a stud, why can’t he stick?

    If Chip goes to Howie and says “I can’t install my full offense without a solid #2 WR on the outside” and Lloyd gets signed as a low cost, one year stopgap – I can live with that. But understand that he’s not a savior and he comes with baggage.

  • NickS1

    Very possible, but why not get him into camp now to have the max time to learn the offense and force the younger guys to have to step up to still compete against a proven guy? That’s my thinking, at least.
