Carson Wentz finishes second in “Which young QB would you take for the next 10 years?” poll

This would look a lot different in 2017.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Eagles fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

The national question for this week’s SB Nation FanPulse polling asked: “Which young quarterback would you take for the next 10 years?” The results from all 32 SB Nation NFL team sites have been tallied and here at the final results:

Huh. Only second place for the guy who easily would’ve been NFL MVP if he didn’t get hurt in Week 14.

Look, I like Pat Mahomes a lot. I think he’s the truth. But I also think it’s fair to want to see a larger sample size before we say he’s just so clearly better than Wentz. I think these results should have Mahomes and Wentz much closer together.

Wentz has proven he’s not a one-year wonder. He’s looked very good through four games this season. The same can’t be said for Deshaun Watson, who certainly would’ve received a lot more votes if this poll was conducted a year ago. What if Mahomes comes back in 2019 and takes a step back like Watson has this year?

As for Jared Goff, I think he’s a good quarterback. I don’t think he’s elite, though. What’s your confidence level in Goff if, say, he had “the average NFL play-caller” instead of Sean McVay? I’m not trying to say he’s totally a system quarterback but I can’t say I’m 100% confident there wouldn’t be a big drop off if he didn’t have McVay. I think Wentz would fare better with that “average NFL play-caller” considering his ability to make plays outside of structure.

Perhaps my favorite part about this poll is the exclusion of a certain Dallas Cowboys quarterback. Fools used to think Dak Prescott was better than Wentz. Now Dak’s rightfully not even in the conversation.

What do you think of these FanPulse results?
