Despite stepping in last season and leading the Philadelphia Eagles on an improbably run to win a Super Bowl title and almost doing the same this postseason before being eliminated, the Philadelphia Eagles have already made their decision that they plan on rolling with Carson Wentz as their starting quarterback of the future.
That is not going to stop the debate whatsoever.
Here is what Favre had to say, via NBC Sports:
No disrespect at all to Carson Wentz. I think he’s already proven that he’s a great quarterback. Totally different than Nick Foles. Nick Foles, to me, is more of a (Tom) Brady-esque type quarterback. Very limited in what he can do but very, very good in what he does. He’s a pure pocket passer and he’s great at dishing it out and he’s proven that he’s clutch. He did it this past week, he did it last year, he’s done it time and time again, and he’s proven that he can win the big games. That, I think, is what we have to look at, or the Eagles, or anyone in a similar situation — it’s about winning, it’s about being clutch, doing really what you expect your players to do. And he does it as well as anyone.
You know the old saying, ‘Dance with the one who brung you?’ They’re both young and can you keep going with both of them? I don’t think so, so you’re going to have to make a decision but I think it is a difficult decision. Again, I don’t want to come across as knocking Carson Wentz at all because I’m not. I think a lot of him. But I would go with Nick Foles, I really would. … They are both good. I just, I really like what I’ve seen from both guys but in particular Nick Foles, especially considering the circumstances in which he has come in.
You can’t blame Favre for this assessment, seeing as how Foles has already delivered a Super Bowl, has shown is he really clutch, and most importantly, he isn’t as injury prone as Wentz.
