    Sabre699 Wait...hold my beer.

    That'll work if they have a good back-up QB 'cause that guy can't seem to get a full season going.

    I get the feeling Eaglies fans are more excited about this than Colts fans. As a Titans fan, I think I like this trade. :) I hope I don't end up eating those words.

    He worked well in Frank Reich's offense. This will be his last ditch effort.
    As an Eagles fan, I'm glad he's off the payroll and the toxic situation is behind them.

    well until you draft another QB in the first round this year...

    love seeing the eagles lose, more than seeing the cowboos or even jets lose =)

    I'm OK with them drafting a QB. Hurts isn't the answer, so if they get a shot at a Mac Jones or Zack Wilson, that works and gives cap space to go shopping in free agency. Zack likely will be off the board before Philly picks. Howie will pick another D2 turd while passing on guys like Mac or Devonta Smith, so you may get more pleasure from them losing.

    the Eagles have killed the Giants over the last 20 years. in any game that matters, it's almost always the Eagles that throws a monkey wrench into our plans, just like last game 2020.

    Why am I not thrilled to have Wentz. I hope all his troubles stay in Philly.

    He'll have a decent offensive line and skill players around him in Indy versus Filthidelphia.
    Carson won't be sacked 50 times like he was last year. So, maybe his future in Indy is brighter than it was in Filthy.

    I hold optimism for my Home Boy from Bismarck.

    Why do QBs get the kid glove treatment? Every other position on the team knows someone may get drafted at their position every year. And every year it's their responsibility to show that they are the better player and deserve to start. QBs should be no different. Earn it. Stop crying foul because the team drafted someone else. Put up, or sit on the bench. That's why a lot of teams are in really shitty QB positions, because they were afraid to hurt the current QB's feelings by drafting another QB. Arizona didnt play by that stupid rule and came out on the other end with Kyler Murray. Other GMs could learn something from them, IMO.

    Josh Rosen has to be one of the bigger draft busts in the last few years

    QB's are no different, but they are a bigger investment for a franchise because a QB has to know the entire offense, every position, not just theirs. They also have to make reads on all 3 levels of defense and make audibles prior to the play being executed. Much more technical difficulty than any other position on the field in my opinion.

    They touch the ball on EVERY offensive play, so success or failure is in their hands.
    More research and scouting goes into drafting the next QB and hoping it's not a Ryan Leaf/JaMarcus Russell than any other position.
    Finding a Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson or Aaron Rogers is the proverbial needle in the haystack.

    I won't give Big Ben any credit, because if you look at the Steeler's entire history in the SuperBowl era, they won their six titles with their running game.

    Flacco won a SB for Baltimore, then they gave him plenty of time to come up with an encore, but with no running game and Ed and Ray not on Defense,
    wasn't gonna happen. Unlike Pittsburgh, at least Ozzy and Steve were brave enough to make the decision to move on.

    Kyler Murry, Dak Prescot, Josh Allen, LaMar Jackson, and Baker Mayfield are good young QB's, but they haven't won squat yet. I just don't see
    the teams paying these guys the money their going to get. It's crazy to me. I'd sign them to a ton of incentives until they win a Lombardi....then their truly a proven
    NFL QB.

    I'm sure it was a hard decision to move on from Rosen in AZ. Not because he was any good, but their investment they had in scouting, and picking him. I don't think he hasn't tried,
    I just think adapting to the faster NFL game maybe wasn't working for him. He will probably have a journeyman's career as a clipboard carrier.
