It seems like every time we record, the next day something happens. So here were are!

Eagles are betting hard on Carson Wentz being ‘the guy’

John thinks Carson Wentz is vanilla and it’s still bad to trade this haul of picks for a QB who is going to sit Year 1

Why did the Eagles re-sign Sam Bradford AND Chase Daniel?

Bradford isn’t being traded

At the end of the day if Wentz is a stud, none of this matters.

This isn’t like Donovan McNabb, but the Eagles are seem like they are trying to recreate him.

The ceiling on Wentz is …. Joe Flacco?

Is the 2016 season now a waste?

The Eagles obviously wouldn’t have made this trade without knowing who the Rams were taking

What do the Dallas Cowboys do now? Jalen Ramsey? Ezekiel Elliott?

Browns vs. Eagles Week 1… No storylines there.

No matter how we feel, Wentz deserves time and let’s see if Doug Pederson can coach him

Draft party next week! 24 hours to get your shirt!
