The Eagles put in their backups in a meaningless week 18 game against the Cowboys….and it showed. The Eagles lost 51-26 but when they did that, they kept their draft pick the same. It couldnt improve because the Eagles are a playoff team so the lowest the pick can be is 19, but it stayed 19.
But a GIANT shoutout to Carson Wentz. Carson was traded to the Colts with a bunch of stipulations that would have to hit in order for the Eagles to get the Colts first round pick. The stipulations were mainly regarding playing time, which is questionable considering his history of injuries. BUT HE DID IT! We hit the 75% snap threshold and the Colts first round pick belonged to the Eagles.
But Carson wasnt done!
He realized the Eagles needed that pick to be good. So he went out and lost back to back weeks. The Colts had a 98% chance of making the playoffs two weeks ago, until Carson Wentz said NOT SO FAST, and lost to the Jaguars.
