What do you think, Philly fans? The Eagles have now guaranteed a reported $107.9 million, and up to $144 million total, to keep Carson Wentz as the team’s quarterback for the next four seasons.

Before you answer, let’s take a trip in the wayback machine to January of 2019.

Back then, the Ole Gunslinger Brett Favre said he believed that the Eagles should keep Nick Foles and get rid of Wentz. He also explained why and made some very salient points.

I added these facts to the argument…

• Foles, 30, is 21-11 (.656) during the regular season as a starter for the Eagles with 58 touchdown passes and 23 interceptions (2.52 TD/int ratio).

• Wentz, 26, is 23-17 (.575) as the Eagles’ starting QB with 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions (2.50 TD/int ratio).

• Foles has won a Super Bowl, a Super Bowl MVP, and has tied two passing records (most TD passes in a game – 7 in 2013, most consecutive pass completions – 25 in 2018).

• Wentz has had a torn ACL and a stress fracture in his back, ending two of his three seasons in the league prematurely.

Since then, Foles went on to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, also on a four-year deal, but his contract is “only” worth up to $88 million, around $45 million of it guaranteed.

Now, what do you think of Wentz’s record-breaking deal?

Wentz seems pretty happy with it.

Donovan McNabb and other Eagles players, both current and past, as well as most of the team’s fans like it.

Other people, notsomuch…

God, I love sports.
