It was another disappointing night for the Philadelphia Eagles and their massive fanbase. Carson Wentz and Co. succumbed to a disappointing 27-17 loss to their NFC East opponents, New York Giants.
The Eagles quarterback was once again indifferent to the visitors. One can argue that it was the Eagles defense that didn’t do well in Week 10, but Wentz harbors a share of the blame.
One will wonder, was it the right decision to let Super Bowl-winning Nick Foles depart in the summer?
The 3-time NFL MVP Brett Favre made an appearance on ESPN’s First Take alongside Stephen A. Smith. The former Green Bay Packers quarterback was asked to comment on the short-term future of Carson Wentz with the Philadelphia Eagles.
“You know, I actually thought that they should have kept Nick Foles rather than Carson Wentz, just based off of the production and where they got to, you know they won a Super Bowl with Foles.
“And that was a little bit surprising, but they’re obviously banking on his upside… How many more years do you let it linger before you stick with him where you cut bait?
“That’s a question they only can answer but I know Doug ‘course we were together for a long time. He’s a very simple coach. He’s gonna put you in the best possible opportunity to succeed.
“He’s not going to complicate things. So I know it’s not Doug. So I’m gonna write it off as too many injuries, right now. I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt,” Favre said on the show.
After today’s display against the Giants, Favre couldn’t have been more accurate. Wentz went 21 of37, throwing for 208 yards without a single touchdown. The Eagles are still first in the NFC East Division. But the question is, for how long?
