Who is a better fit for the Eagles: Nick Foles or Carson Wentz?
The Eagles were floundering when Wentz was on the field in 2018. Now, they are in a position to defend their title in the playoffs. This is coming a year after the team won the Super Bowl without Wentz. There is no argument that Nick Foles is a better fit with the Eagles.
The team is 4-1 with him as the quarterback this year and the offense is moving a little more efficiently. With Foles at the helm, Philadelphia has topped 28 points four of the last five games. Before that stretch, the team only eclipsed 28 points once. He makes better reads and has been more accurate with the ball. He runs this team better.
Any young player is going to regress and that's what happened to Carson Wentz this year. Because of that, they forget that he had this offense running like a Ferrari in 2017 during an MVP-worthy campaign before he tore his ACL.
In 13 games last year, Wentz led the NFL in QBR and had 33 touchdowns. He was piling up numbers and the team was also winning, going 11-2 with him as a starter. Foles is arguably the greatest backup quarterback ever after last year's Super Bowl run, but Wentz has proven he can guide this team with huge success. He is still the better fit with the team.
