Eagles Have Reason To Be Concerned About QB Situation

The injury to Nate Sudfeld has everybody talking about the Eagles backup quarterback situation and rightfully so.  Today at Eagles practice, veteran quarterback Cody Kessler was taking the reps with the second team.  He executed the plays, but clearly his arm is nowhere near as strong as Sudfeld’s or Carson Wentz’.  NFL defensive secondaries won’t be as concerned about the deep ball to DeSean Jackson if Kessler is the Eagles quarterback.

I don’t think it is a stretch to be concerned about the Birds quarterback situation.  Birds head coach Doug Pederson no longer has Nick Foles on the roster and the new backup quarterback, Sudfeld, who knows the offense and was comfortable running it, is not out for a couple of months. That could leave our future in the hands of Mr. Kessler.

I hear some fans saying they’re sure that Wentz, the Eagles franchise quarterback won’t get injured. I don’t know why they’re so confident.  Wentz is an outstanding young quarterback with huge potential, but he is injury-prone.  Yes, he without a doubt injury-prone.  The former North Dakota State star has suffered injuries throughout his college career and he’s been hurt at some point in each of his first three seasons in the NFL.  That injury history equals injury-prone. Hopefully, he’s able to avoid any injuries this season.

To make it plain, the Eagles quarterback situation isn’t good right now.  The Birds lost Foles in the off season, now after just one preseason game, they lose Sudfeld.  This also makes me feel that Sudfeld doesn’t have the durable body to take the NFL level of pounding. He falls on his arm one time and his wrist is broken.  It didn’t seem like his fall was a big deal, but his wrist is broken.

The organization can’t be happy about this situation because nobody would be shocked if Wentz were to be injured at some point during the season.  If he goes down while Sudfeld is hurt, we will be depending on Kessler to execute this offense and lead this team to the playoffs.  Kessler has been mediocre at best in his NFL career and he’s still learning the Eagles offense.  We will see a tremendously talented offense being led by a quarterback, who is barely in the NFL.

Pederson and Howie Roseman can be thrilled about having such an average to below average quarterback running such a talented ball club. All the work that Roseman and his staff did to put together such a talented team, then to be forced to put this talented group under the guidance of Kessler.  Hopefully, he can get the ball into the hands of the team’s playmakers.

Stay healthy Wentz, please stay healthy.  Howie Roseman get on the phone and get us some help.

  1. A couple of Trade Partners if the Eagles don’t feel that Cody Kessler is a quality Back-up to Wentz

    Matt Moore of the Dolphins is behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen
    Chad Henne is the Chiefs is behind Mahomes and 2 Young QB’s that the Chiefs are high on for their back-up Role
    Are any of these QB’s better than Kessler ? Who Knows ? but they do have NFL Experience

    There may be other QB’s out there by the end of Pre-Season but if Sudfeld is due to return by Week #4 (Late September) then they Eagles may just sit tight and hope that Wentz remains healthy and ride with Kessler until Sudfeld Returns

  2. G, you called it. Eagles making the best out of a good situation. Sudfeld is unproven and McCown will have a much better chance of keeping the Birds on track if Wentz were to go down for 3-4 weeks. Thorson is practice squad bound. Bye, Cody.

  3. Ok… here we have it, the FIRST proclamation that McGown is the savior of our hopes and dreams…. most popular man in philly is ALWAYS the back up QB.
    YAWN

  4. I Like this and think it’s a good Move by adding Veteran QB McCown, who is smart, accurate, with natural leadership skills and who will pick-up this Offense well enough over the next couple Weeks to be ready enough and capable to be Carson Went’z Back-Up QB to start the 2019 Season
    I see McCown as the #2 QB behind Starter Wentz with Sudfeld as the #3 QB for 2019 Season
    Kessler Gets Cut and Thorson goes to the Practice Squad or comes up with a “mysterious Injury in order to be stashed away for his Rookie Season.
    McCown understands Offenses and Defenses and can Run this Eagles Offense, He Still has a Decent Intermediate Passing Arm and knows how to Protect the Ball and Himself.. He’s not going to make many Plays from outside the Pocket, nor with his Feet or even Pass many Deep Balls, but he will manage the Offense, Huddle, Clock and Game Situation Well if needed upon..
    Probably the best way to describe McCown is that he isn’t going to Win Games on his own, but he’s not really going to lose them either, with the good squad and Coaching around him and this cannot be said about Sudfeld,Kessler or Thorson at this time who simply lack the experience that McGown brings to the QB Room and Field.. ..

  5. No one fills holes like Howie. Every year I see fans bitch about this or that…. howie just plugs them in. Dude is a master! Don’t be surprised to see Clowney here in the next couple of weeks.

    1. It’s not Just Howie, It’s really the Culture of the entire Franchise from Ownership to the Front Office to the Coaches right down to the Players themselves.. Other Players want to Play here right now with all the positive things, the stability, Young Talent, Taking care of their Own, Passionate Fan Base, Not many other Organizations can offer the total package like the Eagles can right now ..

      1. Paul I know you can’t help yourself- Howie is the Vice President of the Franchise- Its the culture that his boss told him to create- it is the culture he studied during his year in exile- It is JUST HOWIE– this is his creation, with his bosses blessing of course- The players want to be here because of the culture HE created, the coach HE hired, the franchise QB he targeted etc-
        point out again that they never draft to fill an immediate need (something your lunacy can’t interpret)- 1st round is a back up, second round a RB AFTER trading for a top back, WR who is a carbon copy of the highest paid WR on the team ….

        1. It is not “Just Howie” and only an Pompous Ass Idiot as yourself would think or state this !! A long-Term LT was a Big “Need” and with Peters Recent Injury History, and maybe needed more than what you thought .. A Quality RB was a Need too as the Acquired RB in Howard is on his Contract Year and could very well leave after 2019 Season and this is Darren Sproles Final Season, so Yes, Drafting a Quality RB was a “Need” for the 2019 Draft and obviously they like JJAW at WR who is younger,quicker and more Athletic than any of their other WR’s after the Top 3 WR’s on the Roster in which nelson Agholor is in his Contract Year and D-Jax is starting to wind down his Career and will be more of a Rotational Player seeing 40-45 Snaps a Game and not 60-65 Snaps when he was Younger so Yes a Quality 4th WR was a Need

  6. actually during spring when they got howard you stated RB was no longer a need– I on the other hand stated that all 22 positions are in fact a position of need– you don’t fill immediate holes with the draft– you get the BPA–you argued that
    it is JUST HOWIE– just like if it tanks its JUST HOWIE– HOWIE is wearing the big boy pants its his show… he drafts, gets FA and establishes the culture– the man has killed it– just cause you don’t like him or have arm chair GM’ed his every move means nothing-

  7. I would not have used either 2nd Round Pick on a RB and stated so many Times over… There were plenty of Good RB’s in this Draft that went in the 3rd or 4th or 5th Round , When have I said that Howie Roseman hasn’t done a Good Job since Returning back as VP of Operations post Chip Kelly ? No I don’t agree with all his PIcks or Free-Agent Decisions, but he among the entire Organization have done a great job changing the Culture for the Eagles and this goes from the Owner Jeffrey Lurie, to President Don Smolenski to VP of Football Ops Howie Office and the rest of those in the Front Office and Coaching Staff,etc,etc
    The Reality is that Rookies actually contribute very little during their 1st Seasons in the NFL, Maybe a QB or a Special Player here and there, but most are not physically/mentally ready yet to make an impact.. Maybe there’s 3-4-5 Players out of an entire 250 Player Draft Class that do..

    1. “I would not have taken a RB in the second round as there were plenty of good backs later”… you prove my point perfectly… Howie draft the best PA regardless of position because you never ever draft for need… unless of course you wish to be unemployed in the near future…

  8. I would have addressed the Safety Position in that 2nd Round with one of the 2 Selections the Eagles had
    Players like Nasir Adderly, Taylor Rapp and Juan Thornhill will have nice productive Carriers in the NFL at the Safety Position which the Eagles really needed to add Young Talent from this Years very Strong Safety Class
    (Jenkins,MCLeod, Sendejo are all approaching the twilight of their Careers)
    At WR – I would have preferred the dynamic Paris Campbell who could have been the Kick-off-Punt Returner Specialist immediately and eventually replaced D-Jax/N Agholor production by 2020/2021 as the Speed Option in the Passing Game, But that’s just me ….
    I like the Sanders Kid at RB, I just would have waited to the 3rd/4th Round to Select a RB, who on average have about a 3-4 Year Shelf Life in the NFL anyways

    1. well obviously those players you mentioned weren’t deemed BPA by the people who do it for a living for the Birds- pretty simple really–

  9. The more you comment the more you prove my point– THE EAGLES DO NOT DRAFT FOR NEED (OR PERCEIVED NEED)– you correctly point out that they are bit old at safety- a very important position when you consider the unbelievable contribution of Jenkins/Mccloud- yet they didn’t address it because the people you mentioned were not judged to be worthy of that pick REGARDLESS OF NEED–
    you then mention a WR with a plan of succession for a couple of guys currently on the roster (a future need I guess you are saying)– They judged the one they got higher and again not a need–
    as i’ve stated all positions are a position of need currently or IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE SO every pick is a need– get the bpa which is what they do–your petulant little ass aside.

  10. Paulman don’t know shit about the eagles!!!

    Paulman don’t watch the Eagles !!!!!

    Paulman tweets like a tween girl!!!!!!!

  11. Paulman criticizes the sixers, eagles and Phillies by exclusively looking at boxscores and never watching.

    What an absolute loooooooooooozah

  12. Preseason thoughts—- 1. As HAC said 2 years ago, have 2 preseason scrimmages with red shirts on QB, tackle to thud, run situationals, highly structured, safe and MORE entertaining – if the NFL can make gym class (combine) entertaining a controlled scrimmage would be must see tv. 2. Mialata may be the best 7th rounder since Brady 3. JJAW is a player 4. While they look awful, it’s easy to see how prolific this offense can be 5. Preseason for the eagles is only to determine 5-7 roster spots….

  13. Hey Fraud Alert/Mhenski
    Don’t forget the most overrated Sports Franchise in Philadelphia, Yes the Flyers!!
    I’m critical of them too!!
    I do like the From Office/Coaching Changes that they have finally made.. Get Professionals in there and not these ex-Players who don’t know what the hell they’re doing running a Franchise like we’ve all seen for the last 20 + Years!!

  15. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    clips, this blog could certainly be one of the very best in its field.

    Terrific blog!

  16. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  18. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful discussions. In addition, an excellent travel plus medical insurance approach can often ease those issues that come with travelling abroad. The medical emergency can quickly become very costly and that’s bound to quickly place a financial weight on the family’s finances. Setting up in place the ideal travel insurance package deal prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Cheers

  20. You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really one thing that I think I might never understand.
