All of this is indicative of the Philadelphia Eagles’ leadership structure.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ front office and coaching staff have nobody to blame but themselves for creating this problem. Carson Wentz is now a lost cause for 2020, and instead of him being able to possibly work things out during the course of the final four games of the season, Jalen Hurts has a chance to salvage things and create some momentum.

What Howie Roseman was thinking when he drafted Hurts may never be known, but that no longer matters. Everyone is clinging to the hope that Hurts turns out to be something special because, in the end, the rookie could save the general manager’s job and this Eagles season.

For Wentz, he has now become the most expensive backup in the NFL. He’s allowed to take a step back, take a breath, examine his play from a new perspective, and get back to restructuring his game. This gut check could be exactly what Wentz needs to reset his career, whether that be in Philadelphia or somewhere else.

The future of the Philadelphia Eagles’ franchise is gloomy. From quarterback controversies to salary cap mismanagement to poor drafting, and beyond, the Eagles have problems and those problems that could plague this franchise for years to come.

It’s a hard pill to swallow considering this team seemed to be set up for long-term success with a franchise quarterback and Super Bowl-winning head coach. Those are two cornerstone pieces that every franchise needs, but for now, there are questions that are swirling around Philadelphia, none more pressing than the ones being asked at the quarterback position.
