You have to love when former players make comment about the current state of a team. Well, former Eagles gunslinger Donovan McNabb talked about Carson Wentz and the state of the Eagles recently saying the Eagles need to draft another quarterback.
This sounds like a huge shot at Carson Wentz.
“I think in the next two years or so, he needs to find a way to get out of the second round of the playoffs,” McNabb said on The Zach Gelb Show. “What Nick Foles was able to do, take them to a Super Bowl and then possibly take them back to the NFC Championship proves that, hey, some people can get into that offense and be very successful. [Wentz] hasn’t been healthy. He hasn’t really proven to me, besides the year before he got hurt, in his first year, of really the MVP candidate. He needs to get back to that mode.”
“I think, personally, if he can’t get out of the second round in the next two, maybe three, years, but really two years, to be honest with you,” McNabb stated. “If he can’t get out of the second round, they should look to possibly draft another quarterback because you just don’t know about his durability.
“Staying healthy is very key in this league. The team only goes as far as their quarterback takes them. And they put so many eggs in the basket with Carson Wentz and he has to prove that in the next two years.”
Donovan McNabb knows a little about winning as he led the team to several playoff appearances including a Super Bowl loss, but was he out of context for saying this? What do you think Eagles fans?
