The Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t bring Josh McCown back for another season, would they?
Believe it or not, you can call up a few of your friends who are Philadelphia Eagles fans right now, and if you talked to five of them, three or four of them may tell you they’ll swap out Nate Sudfeld for Josh McCown in a second.
McCown has never been the winning quarterback in an NFL playoff game. Heck, he never even played in a playoff game until last season. That’s beside the point though. McCown is a grown man in every sense of the word.
Yes, he just turned 41 on the Fourth of July. Yes, he’s worn four different jersey numbers and played on 12 different NFL rosters since being drafted in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft. He’s barely above a .500 career winning percentage, but he’s also played on some pretty bad teams.
Josh McCown is everything someone would want in a backup quarterback. He understands the game. He’s fiercely loyal, and he has no ego. If you want to know what McCown brought to the table in 2019, watch the episode seven of All or Nothing: Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s like having an additional coach at quarterback and an additional coach in the quarterback room, literally. He coaches high school football in Charlotte, North Carolina, and after watching him give his all in a Wild Card Game despite being injured, he has not only the respect of his coaches, he has the trust of his teammates. What more do you need to be successful if you’re a quarterback?
