I dont think Wentz was ever good.

Watching Nick Foles play football, makes me believe that the Eagles must have had one of the best all around teams in many years, in all facets of the game. Theres no other explanation.
Nick Foles is the worst QB to win a superbowl, making that Eagles team truly great.

From this it's easy to pinpoint the fact that Wentz has been comfortably sheltered, and now that they're starting to cone down to earth we can truly see the real Carson. One of the worst starting QBs in the league

LOL how the #### do you lose a yard when the Seahawks have five guys playing 15 yards off the ball.

How do you even call that play in this situation? Go for it.

Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rogers have spoiled a generation into thinking QB's can operate behind bad offensive lines. (And Mahomes going forward looks to be in this group)

These 4 guys will go down as top 10 in the history of the game. We are beyond spoiled to have them all playing at the same time.

Now having a QB that good forces the D to play differently and 'usually' not blitz, so it's a chicken and egg whether they have good lines or just the lines look good because they are so smart.

For most other mortals, when rushed you panic, look poor, and make bad decisions. Some are better then others, but outside of maybe 6 guys at any given time, the quality of their play is a direct reflection of the line in front of them.

Wentz may be good. He might not be. But no non HOF QB is doing anything with that O-Line.

Eagles cover the spread with very odd decision to go for the 2pt convert.

Darius Slay was so good with the Lions. Looks like Buster Skrine with the Eagles

It's become more commonplace when a team is down 14 with a short amount of time to go for 2 on the first score. Logic is sound, if you're going to go for 2 at all you might as well do it first and if you miss you are still in it, whereas if you miss the second one you have no time left. Pretty hilarious it burned someone for $500,000 though.

I've read plenty of analysis on the going for 2 option down 14 and its horsecrock. There is a reason teams aren't going for 2 with tie games or 7 point games, even though the underlying logic remains the same. I've yet to see the odds work out in the favor of the team down 14 on a meaningful basis. Let alone when a HC is commanding one of the world's most impotent offenses.
