The Jalen Hurts-Carson Wentz debate is in fashion in Philadelphia, so it is only fitting that another former Eagle quarterback gives his opinion on the future in the position.
Vick, who played five seasons with the Eagles, was invited to Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED on FS1 and gave his assessment of Hurts’ performance in the last 2.5 games.
“When you look at a guy like Jalen Hurts and his skill set and what he brings to the table, you automatically start thinking about the future, building around him and how the offense can potentially progress and what you can do on it, ”said Vick. “I know that if I’m thinking like that, Doug Pederson must be thinking the same thing.”
The Eagles are winning week after week with Hurts, but the rookie is coming out of a performance in which he became the first flag in franchise history to score 4 touchdowns in total as a rookie.
Hurts will have Sunday’s clash against Dallas and the following week against the Washington Football Team to make his defense as the Eagles’ starting quarterback.
For Vick, it all comes down to having the right guy at the center and it looks like he believes the Hurts give the Eagles the best chance of success in the future.
“You can’t win if you don’t have the right guy at the center,” said Vick. “It doesn’t mean that Carson wasn’t the right guy, but it was starting to look like the paint was dripping a little on the wall. Philadelphia Eagles fans probably feel they need something new. I know this is how they feel and they don’t give you much time outside.
