Celek tops Eagles in catches, second in drops

On pace for 59 catches, 11 drops.
If Brent Celek, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and McCoy keep up the pace, the Eagles would become the third  NFL team with five players catching 50 or more passes  in the same season.

They also would have the worst record of all those teams. But who's counting?

The Patriots had five receivers with 50-plus receptions in 1994.  Among the group - Michael Timpson (74) and Kevin Turner (52), who would become Eagles. Drew Bledsoe quarterbacked the Bill Parcells team that went 10-6.

The 1980 Browns went 11-5 with league MVP Brian Sipe at quarterback, Sam Rutigliano the head coach.

By the way Celek's five drops trail only team leader Jackson (nine drops).
