Checking in on the NFC East quarterbacks

Sonja Greenfield Senior NFL Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Last week I looked at the quarterbacks of the NFC North to preview what their 2019 season may look like. Apparently, you guys liked it, so I’m going to keep that train moving.  This week I’m going to take a look at the quarterbacks of the NFC East.

Overall, it’s been a pretty quiet offseason for the NFC East. Outside of the Giants and the Eagles making some blockbuster moves, it’s been pretty calm in terms of free agency.

This week I ask, what will 2019 look like for the NFC East Quarterbacks? And it’s a dubious situation, to say the least, unlike the NFC North, where barring injury, the quarterbacks are pretty solid.  Here in the NFC East, it’s not quite the same.

Carson Wentz officially named starter for 2019

Roxana Herrera Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxana Herrera //@rxnlzbth

In a press conference held by Philadelphia Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman and head coach Doug Pederson, they all but said goodbye to Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

When asked who will be starting next season, Pederson told reporters Carson Wentz will be the starting quarterback moving forward.

After sitting out games nursing an ACL injury, Wentz watched his team win a Superbowl led by a backup quarterback. If that wasn’t motivation enough to come back with a vengeance, well, I don’t know what is.

After an MVP-esque 2017 season, Wentz sat out the final few games after tearing his ACL against the Los Angeles Rams. No one could have predicted what happened next, sparking a quarterback debate on who should be the next franchise QB for the Eagles that lasted longer than it should have.

The Eagles have a December to remember

Eagles 24 – Redskins 0

The Philadelphia Eagles will have a chance to defend their title.

After a shaky first couple of games with backup quarterback Nick Foles, the Eagles have done a complete 180° and turned what was sure to be a losing season into a well deserved wild card spot.  

One of the toughest things to do is repeat as Super Bowl champions, but the Eagles fought and have played their best football all season and won five of their last six games.

Where do the Philadelphia Eagles go from here?

Roxana Herrera Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

Eagles 34  Giants 13

After a rainy night in the Meadowlands, Eagles managed to get an easy win. Now what? I’ll go ahead and volunteer to be a Negative Nancy today because, quite frankly, I am not happy with this win.

After two disappointing back to back losses, a win was desperately needed. Especially against a division rival, and a team with a losing record at that. It just isn’t a sweet victory as say beating the Minnesota Vikings – a team that the Eagles demolished last year in the NFC Championship.

Newly signed and returning wide receiver Jordan Matthews has been another weapon for quarterback Carson Wentz. He added 26 yards for the team, but I think having more options downfield will only help Wentz. WRs Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery continue to shine this season, and having Jeffery back has been a major threat for defenses.

Recapping the Eagles first two weeks

Roxana Herrera, Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxana Herrera // @rxnlzbth

After Week 2’s debacle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Philadelphia Eagles decided they needed to bring starting quarterback Carson Wentz back where he belongs. According to head coach, Doug Pederson, Wentz’s return “wasn’t planned”.  It just so happened that he was medically cleared following a loss that Eagles have only themselves to blame.  We’ll just go with what Pederson says.

Backup QB Nick Foles will forever be able to call Philadelphia home. Fans will undoubtedly be grateful for eternity since he brought the first-ever Lombardi trophy to Philly.  But even a Super Bowl MVP is not immune to the fans’ criticism and Foles has received a lot in these first two games.

Doug Pederson is writing a book, so what?

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth 

As I’m scrolling through social media last night, trying to catch up on all sorts of the day’s news, I come across a gem of a tweet from Fox Sports’ radio personality Colin Cowherd.

For some reason, he has an issue with Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, Doug Pederson, writing a book this off-season, Fearless. I’m assuming this book is based on the road to winning the Super Bowl (I’m not sure yet, I haven’t read it) and Cowherd has taken offense to that.

Eagles Fall to 0-2

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

by Roxana Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Yes, yes, I know it’s “only” preseason, but the way the defense played last night reminded me of the way they played in the Super Bowl – they let Patriots’ QB Tom Brady get away with the short pass plays and let them gain 5+ yards. Fortunately, Philadelphia Eagles won’t play them this season, but the defense needs to clean that up before the regular season begins.

Eagles can go 0-4 these next two games, it won’t mean they aren’t ready for the 2018 season. I think head coach Doug Pederson is working out the kinks and being his usual conservative self, while (starting?) quarterback Carson Wentz is still healing from his torn ACL and waiting to hear when he can start playing 11-on-11.

Until then, (backup?) QB Nick Foles is preparing himself just in case. Foles sat out the first preseason game with back pains, but played the first half against the Patriots and finished 3-of-9 with 44 yards and one turnover. He suffered a shoulder injury sometime in the first half.

After the game, Foles said he felt “pretty good” but told reporters he will undergo tests on his shoulder today.

Can Trubisky Lead the Chicago Bears in Year Two?

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The hype train has made its way to Chicago. A new head coach, several new weapons added from free agency and the NFL Draft and a young second-year quarterback to lead them.  

It’s a lot to put on the shoulders of a 23-year old. But when this has been your dream since childhood, you better be ready.

Having been taken number two overall in the 2017 NFL Draft after only playing one full season at North Carolina, the pressure to prove himself was an understatement. Unfortunately, quarterback Mitch Trubisky was thrown in without a chance to learn a system and make it his own.

Poor coaching and play calling overshadowed his true talent. But this year is different. This year Trubisky will play with a swagger the NFL did not get to see. His love of the game will be on display and it will show in a big way.

Can Trubisky lead the Chicago Bears to a winning season in 2018? I tend to think so for several reasons.

A busy month: Recap of April for the Philadelphia Eagles

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

 

By Roxaane Herrera//@rxnlzbth

The Philadelphia Eagles were busy making (money) moves in April. Obviously, the NFL Draft was the number one priority for all NFL teams, but looking back on last month, the Eagles were busy. Signing players left and right, releasing and/or trading players, bringing back favorites, and saving money all in the name of defending the championship title.

Here’s a rundown of what happened in April:
