DK Metcalf Agrees That The Eagles Should Bench Carson Wentz In Favor of Jalen Hurts (PIC)
Philadelphia Eagles are definitely going to like this.
DK Metcalf is being talked about this week, and it has nothing to do with how good he is on the field. The Seattle Seahawks WR was spotted in the comment section on Instagram answering a question that garnered a lot of attention.
He replied “YES” to a question that asked if the Eagles should give the keys to the franchise to rookie QB Jalen Hurts.
The team’s 22-17 loss to the Browns on Sunday has led to cries for Philadelphia to bench Carson Wentz and turn to rookie second-round pick Jalen Hurts, but head coach Doug Pederson hasn’t taken the bait just yet.
Wentz’s play hasn’t been inspiring in 2020 (2,326 yards, 14 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, 58.4 completion percentage), but their terrible record still has them in the lead in the NFC East.
It’s bad, but until it gets really bad, no change wil likely come at the QB position.
