    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    I agree Foles has shown he can be very good with a very good supporting cast, but if it's not that good it could get ugly. Nick will never finish that contract he was given in Jacksonville and might just be back here as a backup in a couple years.

    I don't think so. Outside of Dallas fans/circle Prescott is viewed as an over achiever, and surprise. Wentz because of where he was drafted is expected to be great, and anything less he's criticized. You know a guy that was scrutinized like Prescott, Nick Foles. These guys were scrutinized for pretty much the same reasons of how they started, and where they were drafted. Foles 27-2 while winning most of his game started, and Prescott's rookie year set expectations incredibly high.

    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    Mike Tomlin, Mike Ditka and whomever was the head coach of the Peyton Manning quarterbacked team.

    Daks Agent wants $34m per year

    I like Prescott, and hope the man gets paid he deserves it. It will be interesting to see over time if he was worth the investment, or not. I wanted the Eagles to draft him around where he was drafted as a backup. I believe Dallas drafted him as a backup and he exceeded expectations in preseason, and hasn't looked back. He and Carson are viewed in 2 different ways. With Carson perfection is expected whereas Dak is viewed as overachieving with everyone waiting for him to come back down to earth. It's just like Foles when he was drafted, and starting. We remember every game is the real test, but when he passed the next game was the real test.

    Thank you, and I disagree. There's more to evaluating a QB than just game day. Carson's rookie year I believe by any standard he exceeded expectations on a bad team without having a training camp or preparing to be the starting quarterback. The guy literally came out of college, and right into the NFL QB position and performed. Then there's practices where most of the decisions are made. Year 2 wasn't viewed as a shock where he overachieved it was something they expected. The Eagles by all appearances have no fear over his skill set, or past injuries so they signed him before the price goes up.

    It doesn't take long to figure out if a quarterback chokes under pressure, and you could see early on Carson did not, and neither did Foles. They handle pressure considerably better than Donovan McNabb. People who criticize Carson are criticizing him for his 3rd year when he was physically limited. His mental makeup didn't change from the first 2 years. It's something you have, or you don't.

    Without getting into the semantics of comparing the players, and how it factors into the team's willingness to sign these players it doesn't change the situation both of these teams were in. They obviously both want/wanted to keep these lower round players without paying franchise money. The Eagles would have been in the same situation if they rolled with Nick Foles who statistically like Prescott had fantastic stats, and ultimately reached the pinnacle that a quarterback can reach Super Bowl win/MVP. The front offices just have this urge of wanting to see one more year whereas a quarterback drafted at the top of the draft gets the benefit of the doubt even if they haven't achieved the same heights.

    I'm not quite sure where this Wentz isn't clutch bit started but if you take a careful look at his 2017 stats there some pretty historic numbers there in pressure situations namely third-down, and fourth-down. He also pulled a lot of rabbits out of a** to get us wins that we never got in the past. With all due respect I'll take Wentz if he's recovered from his injuries but if he has a catastrophic injury I will take Dak over and injured Wentz.

    The Cowboys are in the same predicament as Washington was a couple years ago with Cousins trying to evaluate a mid round quarterback when their NFL play surpasses anything they've shown in their previous football endeavors. Washington ultimately let him go what the cowboys do should be very interesting.

    Kirk Cousins is the next Brees

    I don't see the correlation between the 2 other they were both free agents (Drew might have been traded). I know this is an old thread, but I assume nothing is changed. Mr. Cousins was never on Drew's level at any point in his career.

    Seahawks and Wilson agree to mega contract

    I don't think any player is worth 35 million, but if you're asking me if I think he's worth as much as Russell Wilson, yes. Carson has a higher ceiling.

    You would have been making a mistake.
  13. I'd like to know what actually happened before passing judgment. Far too often sensationalized stories get released to elicit a reaction, and gain more clicks. I just don't have a very high opinion of the media nowadays.
  14. If you're talking about the teams the answer would be Carson. If you're talking about only the quarterbacks, and Goff won, the answer to your question would be Goff. He did not win, and to be honest he looked really bad with a ton of holes in his game. I've seen nothing that would make me want to rather have him over Carson to this point. I still think Wentz will have the better career, and be the better player.
  15. You never know. It's not like there isn't players currently on the Eagles that didn't "win fights against women". I say that sarcastically, but the subject in itself is sad. And these groupies that lingering around athletes do what they can to take advantage of players because they know young men are easy targets for exploitation.
