The Philadelphia Eagles have gone through quite the quarterback carousel in the past few years.
After drafting a quarterback in the first round of a particular draft, many teams feel a certain loyalty to that player.
However, if that player doesn’t perform up to a team’s standards, a fanbase can quickly turn against the team if they don’t act accordingly, making some sort of change.
Thankfully for Eagles fans, their front office has acted quickly when it comes to the quarterback position.
The eagles are playing in SB because they were willing to admit that they made a mistake on Wentz. With job preservation a big factor for many nfl decision makers we don’t see enough teams do what they did. That courage, that objectively is why they are playing in the SB.

The Eagles drafted Carson Wentz second overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Although Wentz played extremely well for his first several games and was an MVP candidate in 2017 until an injury, he had a swift fall from grace.
While it’s certainly difficult to tell how Wentz would have fared if he didn’t have an injury, that’s the reality that we live in.
After the 2017 season, Wentz started every game for the Eagles in 2019, and 12 games for the team in 2020.
However, once his play started declining, the Eagles turned to Jalen Hurts, their second-round draft pick in 2020.
Hurts has proved to be the right man for the job, considering that he is an MVP candidate this season, leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl.
After Hurts took over as quarterback, Wentz has played for a new team over the past two seasons, going from the Indianapolis Colts to the Washington Commanders.
At this point, Wentz’s NFL career hangs in the balance, considering that he only started seven games for the Commanders this past season, and has been constantly battling injuries.NEXT: Donna Kelce Had Hilarious Response When Asked Super Bowl Question
