Let’s see if I can get this straight.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz sucked again last night in a loss to the Seahawks.
And rookie quarterback took two snaps on the night.
Is this coach Doug Pederson’s idea of change for the better?
Wentz finished 25-of-45 for 215 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He averaged 1.8 yards per attempt in the first half, the fewest by any QB in a first half in the past three seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information data.
Hurts played his first snap at QB with Wentz on the sideline. It resulted in a short completion to wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. Hurts played two snaps on the night, as Pederson gave his starter every opportunity to breathe life into the offense.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie recently reiterated to Pederson that it’s the coach’s decision to make personnel changes if he thinks that’s in the best interest of the team, a source said. That could be viewed as a green light of sorts if Pederson wants to make an adjustment at the team’s most important position. After Monday’s loss, the calls from the outside will only grow louder.
