  • at this point, do you think the Eagles regret paying him this massive deal?

  • As I said, I don't have to think anything.

  • Let me try to recreate this from the from the last block.

  • Okay, I got my motivation.

  • If it's authentic, it ain't no, that's right.

  • Do it.

  • It is, Ah, fact that they do regret it, which is why they drafted a quarterback in the second round.

  • In this last draft, they could have moved up and grab CD Lamb, the best receiver in the draft.

  • They chose toe hold on to the second round pick to draft a quarterback, Howie Roseman, the G m of the Eagles.

  • And for those who would say, well, they need depth.

  • Carson Wentz is injury prone.

  • If they were really that worried about it, would they be splitting Carson Wentz out wide and using him as a blocker?

  • They would not.

  • It is not.

  • Look, the fact off the matter is, when you get paid 120 million, whatever you are paid to elevate your team, I don't wanna hear about injuries.

  • Be better.

  • He makes one Patrick Mahomes level play a game.

  • He makes three or four other pretty good ones, and the rest are not good.

  • Bad decision making bad execution.

  • Even when you talk about the drops he threw late into the wrong shoulder, Sanders almost makes a play on the ball and you call that a drop.

  • Know whence has not been a franchise quarterback.

  • I would never, and I never do question his toughness.

  • He is tough as nails, that guy.

  • There are a million examples of it.

  • I think that can rally a team.

  • He has a lot of great qualities you're looking for in a quarterback.

  • Which is why I thought he was the M v p.

  • Of the league until he got hurt a couple of years ago.

  • He has regressed shockingly.

  • What I saw at the end of last year when everyone was saying no, he's doing great was the same thing the Eagles front office saw, which is why they drafted Jalen Hurts in the second round.

  • Let me tell you something.

  • If Jalen Hurts was showing them anything at practice, he would be getting a lot more reps on the actual field than he's getting.

  • Didn't have ah fumbling problem.

  • He be getting more reps, By the way, How much worse could you do than one win?

  • They have one win on the season.

  • I acknowledge all the great things Carson Wentz does, but it does not equal up to a franchise quarterback.

  • When you pay that guy you don't have the same resource is to surround them with the kind of team that you'd ideally like because you're relying on that guy to elevate you, and he's been unable to do so.

  • He's not the worst quarterback in the league.

  • Last year I said he's top 15 and I was told, No, he's top 10.

  • I bet you most people would take top 15 now, wouldn't they?

  • I don't have to say whether or not I think they regret their behavior.

  • The Eagles behavior tells me they completely disagree with you.

  • First of all, I think the reason they drafted Jalen Hurts and they drafted another quarterback, not because of the inefficiency of Carson Wentz.

  • It was because of the lack of durability on the part of Carson Wentz.

  • In 2017 if I remember correctly was 11 and two, he was a top M V P candidate.

  • He goes down 13 games into the season Nick Foles comes in saves the day we got all of that.

  • The next year he comes back.

  • He's still not completely healthy.

  • He's five and six as a starter gets hurt again.

  • Nick Foles comes and saves the day.

  • One years of Super Bowl championship.

  • The next year they go to the playoffs.

  • They beat Chicago before they lose to New Orleans.

  • All right, then last year, what are you playing with?

  • It was an infirmary for crying out loud with all the injuries that they had, they required to Sean Jackson in the off season.

  • He was supposed to be your deep threat.

  • He's going to games into the season, plays a grand total of three games for the season.

  • Nelson aglow Alshon.

  • Jeffery will hurt, etcetera, etcetera.

  • He still gets them to the playoffs.

  • Got a quarterback.

  • Their former college quarterback that's playing wide receiver practice squad players playing wide receiver Now this year, all right.

  • Last year.

  • He still gets them to the playoffs.

  • Then what does he do?

  • Max?

  • He gets hurt in the damn first quarter of the playoff game against Seattle, which they lose, and then, naturally, they come in this year and we look at him this year.

  • Some of his decision makers highly questionable, not impressive.

  • It all on Lee complete 58% of his passes.

  • Eight touchdowns, nine interceptions.

  • It's not impressive at all, but he's 27 man, he's 27 years of age.

  • I'm just saying he's 27 meaning that Guess what?

  • If you're the Philadelphia Eagles, you pay them because of what you saw him.

  • Do you recognize his potential?

  • And then not only that.

  • Now you've taken a step back, so we've got to get you to take a step forward.

  • You got quarterbacks in this league in their late thirties and obviously early forties that's producing.

  • And because the brothers stinking up the joint for these three games, we're gonna sit up there and give up on them.

  • Hold on.

  • He's 27 years old.

  • He's got more than a decade in his career left.

  • He has shown he can ball.

  • That's why you've been so disappointed in the max because you've seen him ball in the past.

  • So all I'm saying is now you've got a situation.

  • God, it is out.

  • Hurts is out.

  • Discharge.

  • Jackson is out.

  • You know Al Shaun Geoffrey is out.

  • I mean, damn.

  • And then Sanders is out, too.

  • Everywhere you turn, there's a bunch of injuries.

  • He could do better.

  • There's no question about it, but you got to take all of those things into consideration.

  • Combined with his youth and the skill he's already shown us, he's had.

  • I'm not sitting there looking at.

  • The Eagles are saying, Oh, Dan, we regret it.

  • I'm looking at The Eagles are saying We got to get this right.

  • We got to get him the requisite help.

  • We got a way, got a coach better.

  • But they had the talent.

  • These guys injured right now is what I'm saying.

  • It's not like they gotta go out and acquire them.

  • They got injured way.

  • Yeah, but they got injured, and in the end, when it comes down to us, he's got the skills and he's got youth on the side.

  • Durability is the biggest question mark about him.

  • Nothing that, but having blocked us where you on this look there, they don't regret it at all.

  • Nor should they.

  • And I'll tell you what Look, The reason why they drafted Jalen Hurts is because of this, like it's twofold one.

  • Their backup quarterback, who they had on the roster at the current time, was a guy named Nate Sudfeld.

  • Who's gonna probably They're probably gonna lose the free agency in 2021 they need to have a succession plan.

  • They need to have a number two quarterback.

  • So they have to draft somebody because otherwise they have nobody on the roster and the best time to draft a good quarterback or a quarterback who you think has upside is when you don't need one, and they theoretically didn't need one.

  • That's why they drafted.

  • Jalen Hurts number two last year down the stretch, when he was playing with the people that he was playing with it.

  • Stephen.

  • They just alluded to guys like Greg Ward and I'm not trying to take a shot at Greg Ward.

  • But Greg Ward wasn't supposed to be their number one ride receiver.

  • He lost all of his weapons last year.

  • I know this for effect.

  • Doug Peterson was creating game plans week by week, day by day and taking these guys from a skill position perspective through installed through Day one, install every day to get them on the same page.

  • with Carson.

  • So what he did as far as getting them to the playoffs and executing the way they executed down the stretch was nothing short of a miracle.

  • Ah, flat out miracle.
