“Carson Wentz is being perhaps the worst teammate you could possibly be – ever. Here’s the problem: there is a narrative around Carson Wentz that as good as he is or potentially could be, he’s just never been able to be the man. It puts the Eagles in an utterly impossible position.”
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson announced Monday that Hurts will start Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. It will be Hurts’ third straight start, meaning it will be the third straight game Wentz and his $128 million contract ride the pine.
And Barber says that’s left the Eagles in a “no-win situation. The only thing that can help this is Carson Wentz has to come out and say, ‘Jalen Hurts is playing great, he deserves to start right now, we’ll have a great quarterback battle next season.’ He needs to say something like that. Otherwise this thing could get really, really ugly and disruptive and divisive in the locker room and in the front office.”
