The Facts: According to PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski, Mathews is not a great fit for Doug Pederson's offense.
Diehards Line:Kempski reminded readers that Pederson has said that he wants to be able to move his backs around to create mismatches for opposing defenses in the passing game. That is not at all a strength of Mathews'. So while the Eagles don't necessarily want Mathews long term, they're kinda screwed in 2016 without him in the short term. In that sense, Kempski considers Mathews the Sam Bradford of running backs.
