You can blame WR injuries or find guys like Travis Fulgham and Greg Ward Dan Leberfeld

You can make excuses or figure out a way with who you have.

The Philadelphia Eagles, who have a lot of wide receiver injuries, beat the San Francisco 49ers, 25-20, last night.

The game-winning TD catch was by Old Dominion wide receiver Travis Fulgham on a 42-yard strike from QB Carson Wentz.

Most of you probably never heard of Fulgham.

So you can buy the media excuses about lack of weapons, or you can take who you have, do a good job of going through progressions, and find a way.

Fulgham was released by both the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions before landing on the Eagles’ practice squad, and getting promoted a day before the 49ers’ game.

Wentz led the Eagles to this huge win throwing to the likes of Greg Ward, a former college QB, and Fulgham.

Because as they say in the scouting world: “Quarterbacks make receivers, receivers don’t make quarterbacks.”

Wentz also had four key offensive linemen out – Lane Johnson, Jason Peters, Brandon Brooks and Andre Dillard.

But he figured out a way.

As that old saying goes: “A rising tide lifts all boats.”
