3. Haason Reddick

Reddick continues to be the Eagles’ best defensive player. Putting up double-digit sacks for a fourth year in a row, Reddick made his second straight Pro Bowl this season.

He played the most snaps out of anyone in the defensive line, but there is an argument to be made for him playing even more.

Despite being the team’s most productive pass rusher, Reddick was inexplicably deployed in coverage the last few weeks. This decision came on the heels of replacing defensive coordinator Sean Desai with senior assistant Matt Patricia. Head coach Nick Sirianni claimed this approach was to “avoid predictability." It obviously didn’t help.

It was never going to work. Dropping one of the best pass rushers in the league in Reddick into coverage never made sense. Now it’s time to have him do what he does best and have him rush Baker Mayfield on every single one of those plays. He needs to play as many snaps as possible.
