Philadelphia: As we know during any season there’s always going to be bumps in the road and Eagles coach Doug Pederson would make a change at the quarterback position by benching Carson Wentz for rookie Jalen Hurts as the Eagles will get their first win since November 1st.
With the change at QB now leads to some questions about their abilities to motivate their teammates
During halftime of Monday night’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns ESPN analyst Booger McFarland would come out saying Carson Wentz is not a true leader as the Eagles responded to rookie Jalen Hurts as the Eagles took down the New Orleans Saints
Miles Sanders said after the game about how the team played with Hurts
“He played awesome today. The tape shows for itself. He’s so confident and he’s a natural leader. We just needed that and he gave us that spark to start from last week. But ya’ll seen it all. I think we played a whole total of four quarters today. I think we looked like a complete team, minus the penalties, we have to clean that up, but overall though I think this whole team did a hell of a job.”
Sanders would also say that Hurts did what Carson Wentz does as a leader
“Just encouraging everybody. Talking to us in the huddle. Constantly talking to us. Just giving us confidence.”
The Philadelphia Eagles will look to make its back-to-back wins as they take on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. on FOX from State Farm Stadium in Glendale Arizona.
