According to McLane it's possible.

Apparently Spads says it's a possibility.

Wentz has done everything the Eagles wanted from the first day he was taken. Now, it seems, he is just a healthy CT scan away from, potentially, starting the opener on September 11 against Cleveland.

If I had a vote, I'd make him ride the pine. No sense in throwing him to the wolves just yet.

I'm pretty confident that he is going to be a very good player. Him playing this year likely moves his timeline up. And it makes the season more fun to watch. I'm all for it, but wouldn't be surprised if it's more of a mid season timeline.

I agree with you. If/When Peters goes down, this will be an ugly team to watch. At least the kid will make things interesting with his feet on broken plays.

I bet we are going to see lots of "12 personnel" sets --2 TEs.

Wentz has to play, stop being pussies.

Jameis Winston was a rookie last season. He took a piece of a shit Tampa Bay team, made them somewhat respectable, kicked our fucking asses, and had of a hell of a season.

If you think Wentz sucks I can respect that; but let's not pretend a rookie QB can't have a great season with a bad team. Tampa Bay came in with a worst record than us.

Wentz will only benefit from playing time if he gets time to play, so everything depends on the OL.

Personally I'd sit him for the first six or eight weeks with the occasional drive late in games before starting him from November onwards, unless Daniels really sucks or Wentz is lights out.

Don't be obtuse. Winston was more pro ready.
