The Philadelphia Eagles just let the two best backup QB options get away.

There’s no point in being dishonest or misleading about any of this. Most of our staff isn’t going to sit around and watch a ton of tape on Tyrod Taylor. Well, that isn’t true. Some of these guys and gals eat, sleep, and drink football, even if it isn’t Philadelphia Eagles football.

Come on though. Tyrod Taylor? He just lost his job to a backup/rookie right?

The fact of the matter is this. We’ve all been watching Tyrod long enough to state we have a pretty good grasp on who he is, but we can also say this. He was still one of the top ten free-agent prospects at the quarterback position heading into the 2021 free-agency frenzy.

The Texans are sipping the juice. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, they just inked him to a one-year deal that’s worth about $12 million.

Hey, no sweat right? Philly can still snag Jacoby Brissett, can’t they? Well, can’t they?

The answer to that is also no. According to ‘Schefty’, Brissett has gotten snatched up on a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. The news of this came two hours after ITI dropped a list of three potential backup QB targets. Some of us would probably venture to state that, at this point, the pickings are really slim for Philly, at least in free agency, but don’t give up hope!

Here are three guys the Birds might still be able to get their hands on, maybe. Perhaps you’ve heard, but Philly’s got one quarterback. One! Gosh, this team doesn’t seem to have any idea about what it’s doing.
