Philadelphia Eagles fans are back on a familiar conversation piece.

As angry as you are at the Philadelphia Eagles, you have to credit them for something. They’ve gone out of their way to speak highly about their quarterback, Carson Wentz we mean, whenever a camera is around. Now, while that may not sound like much, it’s actually more important than you realize.

Let’s just say that the plan all along was to trade 11, which we’ve since learned would be an idea that would be welcomed by some of the coaches, much of the media, and many players on the team. Bashing him for his flaws, poor play, and difficult nature wouldn’t just be damaging, it would have been a bad business decision.

Here’s the thing though. We also know that, even though Carson Wentz has some friends on the team, the two guys that actually have the power to run him out of town don’t want to (Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie and executive vice president and general manager Jeffrey Lurie). That means you’re stuck with him Eagles fans.

There’s also something else to consider. Though many of you are fully on board with trading 11 to the Indianapolis Colts now that Philip Rivers has retired, you’ve never considered something. You don’t even know if the Colts want Carson Wentz, do you?

Recent reports have stated that they don’t, but let’s have some fun anyway. Let’s for a second, pretend that those reports are in error and a reunion with Frank Reich is possible, even though Wentz is spoiled, coddled, hates criticism, and fears competition. Here are two trade scenarios that popped up in a conversation among the ITI staff. Feel free to tell us if we’re crazy.
