Who’s the Q?

In Philadelphia, rather than making a move for a backup like AJ McCarron who has never seen Philly, we have 3 homemade heroes trying to be No. 1. The connections to PA? Here Goes:

Carson Wentz played 16 games with the Philadelphia Eagles last year.

Nick Foles is returning home, with his most successful team that he played 2011-2015 as a starter.

Matt McGloin played college football with the PSU lions.

Jon Gruden believes the Eagles will stick with Wentz, saying,

“He’s got a better receiving corps, and the reps will add up. He’s going to be able to go into the second-year as a starter, calling the same plays, handling situations and audible better than he did the first time around, just because of experience. That’s great, great thing, and something that not a lot of quarterbacks don’t have with the same system and same play-callers for two seasons. I did like him a lot [coming out of North Dakota State] for the same reasons that I said I would choose [Pitt quarterback] Nathan Peterman if I had to play a game in three or four months. The kid was well-trained at North Dakota State. They train quarterbacks differently there. They train football players different there. In the huddle, they use a lot of motion and shifts, they have a volume of plays, and they put a lot on the quarterback at the line of scrimmage. I think that helped Carson dramatically handle the variety and all the different things that are in the Eagles’ playbook.”

Others? Not so much…

Brandon Lee Gowton, a writer for Bleeding Green Nation, says he sees and fears, “when Wentz struggles and some of Foles’ fanboys call for him[Foles] to be the starter”

I don’t know about you, but this is my Depth Chart…

1.) Carson Wentz

2.) Nick Foles

3.) Matt McGloin
