The Eagles didn’t sign McCown because they don’t have faith in Sudfeld. They didn’t sign him because they’re concerned with Sudfeld’s ability to be their No. 2. They didn’t sign him in case Sudfeld doesn’t work out.
They signed him simply because Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson believe the Eagles are a better team with McCown on the roster than without him.
McCown brings nearly two decades of experience playing quarterback in the NFL, and when you have 26-year-old Wentz, 25-year-old Sudfeld and 23-year-old Thorson in your quarterback room, there’s tremendous value in a guy who’s been around since before the Linc was built. But the Eagles also need someone who can be effective as soon as the opener on Sept. 8.
JAX QB Cody Kessler - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Miami Dolphins
In the last-second loss to the Redskins last week Cody Kessler and the Jaguars offense again had trouble moving the ball. Kessler finished with just 57 yards through the air on only nine completions and was also sacked six times. But it wasn’t a completely ugly performance, as he led the team with 68 rushing yards on six attempts. The Dolphins are allowing nearly 260 passing yards per game but there has to be better options than Kessler.
