Carson Wentz (2016 - 2020)

  • 68 regular-season games played, 68 starts
  • One postseason game played, one start
  • 2,492 attempts, 1,562 completions, 62.7% comp percentage (reg season)
  • Four attempts, One completion, 25% comp percentage (postseason)
  • 16,811 passing yards (regular season), three passing yards (postseason)
  • 113 passing TDs (reg season), Zero TD passes (postseason)
  • 1,061 rushing yards, eight rushing TDs

Welp, sometimes things don't work out as you think they should. The second player taken in the 2016 NFL Draft, Carson Wentz was supposed to be the future. For a while, it looked like he might be. Then, it happened.

Carson Wentz didn't regress. He fell off of a cliff. Still, no one will ever forget his 2017 NFL season. It helped set the table for the first Super Bowl win in franchise history.

The results of his efforts included a Second-Team All-Pro, a Pro Bowl nod, and a Bert Bell Award that season, but he left the franchise having never been the winning quarterback in a playoff game.

Norm Snead (1964 - 1970)

  • 85 regular-season games played, 81 starts
  • Zero postseason games played
  • 1,154 attempts, 2,236 completions, 51.6% comp percentage (reg season)
  • 15,672 passing yards (regular season)
  • 111 passing TDs (reg season)
  • 266 rushing yards, 13 rushing TDs

Speaking of strange NFL careers, welcome to the Norm Snead portion of the list. He threw more interceptions (124) than TDs (111) during his Eagles and NFL career. He played for Washington, Philly, and the New York Giants twice. Make no mistake about it though. He's a part of the Eagles story forever.
