The Eagles are just now realizing how awful their backup QBs are in Matt Barkley and Mark Sanchez. You think they'd look back in history and realize just how amazing all these Trojan QBs have been in the last few years with the exception of Carson Palmer.
Eagles better pray that Nick Foles stays healthy all season long or its going to be a very long winter for them.
Chip Kelly's offense isn't the most complicated in the world but it does expect a lot from its quarterbacks in terms of decision-making and setting the tempo. Usually this offense requires some QB athleticism but with Foles starting it doesn't seem to matter as much. I do believe, however, that Kelly would love to have a more mobile QB as his back-up.
Which brings me to the Seahawks.
It is no secret that the Seattle Seahawks have a plethora of quarterbacks on their current roster in starter Russell Wilson, former starters Terrelle Pryor and Tavaris Jackson, and practice squad player B.J. Daniels. This doesn't even include former Husky, Keith Price.
More than likely, the Seahawks will only retain three QBs with two being on the active roster. I suspect Wilson will keep his job and Jackson as well. However, I think Price will make the practice squad over Daniels.
So what do they do with Pryor and Daniels? Or even, potentially, Jackson and Price?
Now, all these QBs are mobile and somewhat experienced. I would think Pryor would be very tempting for the Eagles considering his speed and previous starts with the Raiders.
I say the Eagles should look at sending a 6th or 7th round pick to the Seahawks for either Pryor or Jackson.
Take a look at some of Pryor's highlights.
