Four quarterbacks on the Eagles’ schedule have proven they can win, but no one expects them to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Winning in the NFL is tough. Playing quarterback in the NFL is also tough. Why do you think we see three or four drafted in the first round every April?

Philly gets their shot at several guys who have won in this league, but this league asks everyone the same question. What have you done for me lately?

Eagles schedule, Tier 3: The ‘these guys still have something to prove’ category.

Each of the four men in this tier has shown they can win. Despite that, however, there are still questions about whether or not they can get the job done. Welcome to life in the NFL.

47. . . . Mac Jones, Patriots. 12. player

Despite Bill Belichick’s obvious impatience with Mac Jones, the hope is Bill O’Brien restores something here. Jones isn’t going to manufacture any off-script plays, but he may get away with that as part of an organization that prides itself on structure.

. . . Kyler Murray, Cardinals. 11. player. 32

Kyler Murray has been accused of being immature. He’s been called out by teammates, and now, he’s attempting to return from a season-ending injury. He’ll have to do it with a defensive-minded head coach while leading a team that seems to be unraveling. Is there any magic left?

player. 59. . . . Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins. 10

Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa meet in 2023 for the first time as opponents. The Dolphins are high-powered on offense. A formidable defense is now led by Vic Fangio. If Tua can stay healthy and take another step, the Dolphins can make some noise.

Matthew Stafford, Rams. 9. player. 51. . .

It feels like Matt Stafford hasn’t been healthy since Super Bowl 56… if he was healthy then. We all know he’s talented, and winning a Vince Lombardi Trophy validated him to some degree, but one has to ask if it’s reasonable to believe he’s going to have a major bounce-back at 35 years of age.
