Impact receiver is Eagles' biggest need
Wide receiver: After struggling in 2003, especially in the playoffs, the Eagles' offense needs an impact receiver in the worst way. Starters Todd Pinkston and James Thrash both are inconsistent and probably are better suited to backup roles (and Thrash even could become a cap casualty). It was hoped that No. 3 receiver Freddie Mitchell would dominate, and though he has improved and has earned more playing time, he isn't a legitimate No. 1.
