Foles is also the backup TE.

I guess you can argue that anybody not on the starting squad on the first snap is a backup. But in systems where players rotate in and out of packages, the term just doesn't properly describe their role ("Meh, he's just a backup."). That would make Chris Long and Michael Bennett backup DEs and Sidney Jones a backup CB. The term can be inaccurate and potentially dismissive.

I know it's just stupid semantics. But discussion topics are a little thin. Welcome to the off-season doldrums.

Back to Goedert...maybe I'm overly optimistic, but I think he'll be starting quality once the regular season arrives.

That'll work I suppose. Maybe more like the X, Y, Z thing they use to describe the WRs. If we do that then I can sleep at night.

think snaps not positions

if the eagle starting TE had left in FA then goddart well may get the most snaps at TE this year but since they currently have a really good starter and he’s a rookie errz will in all likely hood far exceed his time on the field

or think if the starter got hurt who would take his snaps...whoever that is is a back up

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

The point of talking about moms is to say something bad or insulting about her, not facts.

Let me know when this happens. Thanks.
