Donovan McNabb is not making any friends in 2019.
The former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback simply looked at the injury history of Carson Wentz the last two years and weighed in on what the franchise should do if Wentz does not put the team in the NFC Championship game within the next two years.
“I think in the next . . . two years or so he has to find a way to get . . . out of the second round of the playoffs,” Donovan McNabb told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio. McNabb said that, if Wentz doesn’t do that, the Eagles should consider their options at the position, pointing out that the success of Nick Foles “proves . . . that some people can get into that offense and be very successful.”
