Fun Fact: The Philadelphia Eagles Men's Professional Football Team does not have a single leader within the organization. I have spent years trying to defend Carson Wentz against the haters and the losers. YEARS. Spent years of my life going to war for that god fearing man. And when the Eagles had the Washington Football Team against the ropes at halftime, what happened?
What did Carson say at halftime? What did Doug say at halftime? What did Fletcher Cox say at halftime?
Clearly fucking nothing. They didn't do a fucking thing. Not a God. Damn. Thing.
The Super Bowl card has been used up long ago. Doug Pederson doesn't care about you. He doesn't care if you had the worst Sunday of your life. Carson Wentz doesn't care about you--unless you belong to his parish. But for the most part, he doesn't care about you. And as talented as he may be, he is not the leader of men that you need him to be in order to bring another Lombardi Trophy to the city of Philadelphia. I've tricked myself into believing that he's that guy, but he simply is not.
Can Jalen Hurts get it done? I don't know. But do I feel so much more confident right now in the combination of Jalen Hurts and Nick Saban than I do in the combo of Wentz and Doug? Abso-goddamn-lutely. It can't be any worse than what we just saw today.
Roll. Damn. Tide.
