We may pay a little bit more for Wentz or a lot more (1st rather than 2nd). I think in the end we will have gotten a steal with Wentz. I am not sure what everyone loves about Darnold, other than his arm-which is good but so is Wentz's. Time will tell but Ballard was smart not to draft Darnold in the first place (brilliant if you factor in who he got in return). I think he will be seen as smart to not go after him now also.

When Andrew Luck is your QB, you don't draft a QB. Had Ballard known at the time of the draft that Luck was done, it might have gone a lot differently.

I think we will do well with wentz and in the end this trade will be graded very favorably.

Time will tell how this works out. The panthers actually have a pretty good team besides the QB.

The only thing I can really say is that Wentz and Reich already have a good working relationship. And that we know Wentz is capable of playing at a really high level.

True and seems like most teams wanna trade a QB to the other conference so maybe that factored in

Yeah, I trust Reich - especially when it comes to QBs. My primary concern with Wentz is injury history. The better oline should help though.

Not disagreeing, it should help. Wentz also needs to learn
A. When to give up on a play
B. When to slide. (Are you listening Andrew)
C. When to throw the ball into the 17th row
D. Run out of bounds.
E. Hit the f*cking check down and get 6+ yards
F. Dont listen to the press or the dumb@sses on the interweb.

I don't believe he just forgot how to do theses things.... 2019 wasn't that damn long ago when he carried the Eagles who really were not a very good team. He put up solid numbers. It was just last year alone that he tried to play hero ball and carry them again after the line was decimated and he had no weapons. I really thing we struck gold here the guy had ONE bad season. Not sure how many QBs do much better. O line was complete garbage. Now he is behind a great line with solid weapons and a chip on his shoulder. He's gonna kill it.

Agree. When the trade first came about I was hesitant, but I didnt really follow philly so I had a very outside perspective. Then the trade happened and I was concerned about next years pic going from a 2 to 1. But as time has gone on, seeing the interviews and his attitude, seeing more of his numbers over the years, and knowing what we have vs what the eagles had last year, I am much more confident that we made a good move.

Hero ball, right to the point. Thanks. Get a LT and you have a big ass running game. Make them play the run and mess with them with play action
