Looking at Miles Sanders hit the hole is one thing. Listening to him chirp after a big gainer is another. Philly’s starting back is running with purpose this summer and clearly has something he wants to prove.
Eagles assistant head coach/running backs coach Jemal Singleton didn’t want to say Sanders has the cliched chip on his shoulder, but the fourth-year rusher is showing an extra gear. He looks mentally and physically stronger.
“I think he’s shown that [edge] already,” Singleton told reporters. “Being explosive, attacking the hole, getting north, some of the things we’ve been working on to really get his vision going. And I like what he’s been doing. He’s really leading the pack right now.”
