The expectation out of Philadelphia is that rookie QB Jalen Hurts will be the starter for the remainder of the season, per @mortreport.— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) December 13, 2020
So this news just started circling and it’s really interesting to me. I view it as the Eagles want to see what the kid has but also give Wentz a fresh start next season. Carson isn’t going anywhere with his contract so unless Hurts plays the best football in the league, it’s Wentz’ job 2021.
And honestly, it has to be. Carson is bad this year, no doubt about it. But he isn’t finished, he isn’t broken. Because as bad as Wentz has been, Doug and Howie have been worse. I believe Carson will be back to his 2017 form and with this being a lost year, no need to risk him getting injured.
I will say, weird this announcement starts making its round before the Saints game. They have a top tier defense and it’s most likely Jalen struggles today. Weird to have this circulating now. But hey, the Eagles are the Eagles so kinda makes sense.
