How Should Cowboys Fans Feel About The Carson Wentz Trade?

Player movement across all professional sports is at an all time high, and the NFL is no different. Former first round pick Carson Wentz was the latest quarterback to change teams this week, getting traded from the Eagles to the Colts for an astonishingly low price.

Wentz was once thought of as the next great quarterback in the NFC East, but he fell off fast due to injuries, poor play, and a subpar supporting cast. Now Wentz moves onto Indianapolis looking to revitalize his career. But what does this mean for the Cowboys?

Outside of 2017, Carson Wentz hasn’t brought much stress to the Cowboys during his career thus far. Still, with Wentz under center the Eagles plans were clear: they were going after a Super Bowl. They were looking to win and win now, but those plans seem to have clearly changed.

Not only did the Eagles trade Carson Wentz, but they’ve also begun letting go of declining veteran players like Desean Jackson. With a new head coach in the building, it’s time for the Eagles to clean house and rebuild for the future.

To…tank, as some might say.

Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders Will be a Problem for the Cowboys

Philadelphia holds the sixth overall pick in the next draft, and they’re being linked to every potentially available quarterback. There’s also talk of them looking to move up in the draft, possibly trading picks with the New York Jets to go after Zach Wilson or Justin Fields.

Either way, no one seems to believe that Jalen Hurts will be the unquestioned QB1 come September. Hurts came in when Wentz was benched to end the 2020 season, and while he initially brought a jolt to the Eagles offense, he came crashing back to Earth against the Cowboys during their week 16 bout.

So in the end, Cowboys fans shouldn’t be worried just yet about the future version of the Eagles. If they were to move up (or sit tight) and snag quarterback Justin Fields, then their rebuilding process would be sped up drastically.

As of now, though, they are willingly entering a tank phase in Philadelphia.

What do you think?

  1. When you look at how little the Iggles got for Carson, I still say JJ needs to put his ego in his pocket and sign DAk to the non exclusive tag.

    I’ll wager no team poinies up the money Dak wants. . . .at least not if the cost is two #1s. Dak & his agent can make the best deal they can, end the debate and JJ/Da Boys have the option to match.

  2. Dak and Watson are tied as #5-6 QB and teams would gladly give 2 one and more for either.
    The difference in Watson and Dak from the failed athleticism QB is Dak, Watson have grown as defense readers where Mariota, Newton, Winston, Wentz never evolved beyond using degrading athlete skills.

  3. What I see is QBs being hyped up by sport media talking heads. Wentz is a perfect example of this. He was touted as a MVP candidate not too long ago. Now he is traded for an “astonishingly low price”.

    I agree with Kevin on the injuries being a problem. He has a good arm and pretty good mobility, and I would not be very surprised if he is able play well with Colts if he can stay healthy.

    As far as how it affects Cowboys and NFC East, I think it’s too soon to know how Hurts will actually play out. The sample size is kind of small so far. He certainly played very well his last year at OK. Not sure they draft a QB in FIRST round. Of course being a Cowboy fan, I hope he doesn’t play well for hated Eagles.

  4. somewhat agree with siempre as far as team’s would give Dak his big contract and 2 1sts for the right team that is

    the Colts trading for Wentz were the Colts cheap way of trying and get a QB they can win with , remember Wentz had his best success when he was with Frank Reich who’s the Colt’s HC now , will this work ? I doubt it , it will probably fail like the Phillip Rivers experiment last year the Colt’s tried

    The Colt’s should’ve just paid up and gotten one of these QBs who are available for trade i.e. Russ or Watson

    So who gave up much to go get a QB ? The Rams gave 2 1sts , a 3rd and Jared Goff for Stafford , a guy that drew interest from about half the league , Ole broken down Stafford now it remains to be seen as to if this worked for Rams but i think it’s safe to say this is a win for Lions part of trade in getting a good load of picks and a QB in which you can work on his contract and be decent

    So there’s team’s who’d want to get a QB and pay up for Dak who’s a younger , less injury prone and better QB than Stafford at least rn , so who would you might ask ?

    49ers are the number 1 most obvious team out there , they’re SUPER AGGRESSIVE in trading for and or trading for players and picks , after the Rams traded for Stafford , you know Lynch and Shanahan are looking to out do their division rivals . Ppl have connected them with D Watson (Who I like better than Dak) but if Dak is available for 2 1sts compared to what i’ve seen them trading for D Watson , why wouldn’t they be willing to trade for and pay for Dak ?

    Miami and Pittsburgh are other teams who’d be interested though I’m not as confident they’d do that as Miami has Tua and even if they don’t believe in Tua , why not spend 3rd overall pick on Wilson/Fields ?

    And as far as Pitt goes , it’s just not their MO but you never know with the young talent they got at WR and their D , they might do it

    team’s would trade 2 1sts and more to bring in Dak and even pay for his contract if they are desperate enough to try and win now

  5. To tell the truth I’m glad that they traded him! I believe that he is a good talent that had a terrible year by getting sacked 50 times! I feel our chances are better beating them with out him than with him! There again he signed a big contract and in return the Organization couldn’t put enough talented people around him to protect him!
