He's got one?
Pinkston had 36 catches on the year. He had 1 TD. When TO got injured, Pinkston accounted for 7 catches, 93 yards and zero TDs in a span of 5 games. Of those 7 catches and 93 yards, 2 of those catches and 34 of those yards were in the Dallas game TO was hurt in. If you take that game out, basically, he caught 5 balls for 59 yards. An average of 11.8 YPC.
I'll give you another stat that I feel is telling for Pinkston. Of his 36 catches last year, 35 were in wins. Only 1 was in a lose. Here's one for you. He had zero catches in the Red Zone. Not one catch.
This, to me, suggests that Pinkston is not a good compliment but rather, needs help to be effective. Clearly, with TO, his numbers are, at best, adequate. Without him, his numbers seem to be sub par, to say the least.
I think you match TO up with a good WR opposite him and Philly wins it all last year.
