In today’s Philadelphia Eagles news update. Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb pissed off a lot of Eagles fans over the weekend when he suggested that the team should consider drafting a quarterback as insurance for injured quarterback Carson Wentz.

During an appearance on CBS Sports Radio, Donovan McNabb said Philadelphia has to consider drafting a quarterback if Wentz can’t lead the team past the second round of the playoffs.

“I think in the next two, three years — two years or so — he has to find a way to get out of the second round of the playoffs,” McNabb said.
“What Nick Foles was able to do, take them to a Super Bowl and then possibly take them back to the NFC Championship Game, proves that, hey, some people can get into that offense and be very successful. (Wentz) hasn’t been healthy. He hasn’t really proven, to me, besides the year before he got hurt in the year he was, really, an MVP candidate. He needs to get back to that moment.”

Wentz’s teammate Lane Johnson didn’t appreciate McNabb’s remarks about his quarterback, and posted a message on Twitter calling McNabb a snake. Johnson elaborated on the Twitter post saying:

“This is what I meant — every training camp we have all of these ex-players come and shake our hands, wish us good luck. Then, they just go out and just talk hate,” Johnson said. “I feel there is a lot of envy, jealously, and I see a lot of fakery. It isn’t just me — a lot of other teammates see it too. You would think the best quarterback in franchise history would try to build up a young man that looks up to him instead of always criticizing him, critiquing him and wishing he would fail so he could be the missing link and feel better himself.”
