Backup QB? in Colts Football Posted February 23 6 minutes ago, DougDew said: The idea of a backup needing to not be a threat to Wentz is a false narrative. Hurts was drafted to be the future starter, not to be a backup. The Eagles will make noise this draft about possibly taking a QB at 6, but that's just a deflection tactic designed to mask the reality that Hurts was drafted in the second round to actually be a starter. Predetermined, for whatever reason. That's not the same thing as brining in a backup QB for the purpose of being a backup. In the "threat" scenario, Eason is already a threat to Wentz because Eason was drafted in hopes of developing into a starter, and he could certainly ball out and do that, yet Wentz wanted to come here. Why would they draft a future starter when Wentz just signed a new contract and is only 28?
