It’s no secret that Eagles fans have been disappointed with the play of Carson Wentz this season.
Wentz entered Week 12 with an NFL-high 13 interceptions and six games throwing multiple picks. He was intercepted twice last week in a loss to the Browns.
The quarterback hasn’t looked much better Monday night against the Seahawks, completing just 2 of 8 passes for 4 yards on Philadelphia’s first five possessions. Each of those Eagles drives resulted in a three-and-out.
Wentz finally found a rhythm on his sixth drive, getting it done both with his legs (two rushes for 33 yards) and his arm (5-of-9 passing, 26 yards, TD) to cut Philadelphia’s deficit to 14-6 at halftime. But it seems that many fans have already seen enough of Wentz this season, and want to see what second-round pick Jalen Hurts can do instead.
Hurts has been used primarily as a Wildcat QB, much like how the Saints used Tayson Hill before Drew Brees’ injury. But he did complete his lone pass in the first half Monday: A 6-yard toss to Alshon Jeffery. That puts him at 3-of-3 passing for 33 yards on the season. He’s also carried the ball 12 times this season for 56 yards (4.7 yards per carry).
It’s a small sample size for sure, but many fans are getting antsy and want to see what Hurts can do as a full-time starter.
