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.
NYJ QB Josh McCown - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 at Tennessee Titans
Josh McCown got his second start of the season, filling in for the injured Sam Darnold. The Jets were playing catch-up so McCown threw 45 passes which produced 276 yards, a touchdown and an interception. New York's offense has struggled overall and there was hope McCown could return to his 2017 play, but that hasn't happened yet.
McCown will face the Titans who are 11th in aFPA to quarterbacks. This won't be an easy game for the Jets so McCown might end up throwing the ball a lot again this week. However, you could see by last week's numbers, that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a big day for McCown. Keep him on the bench for Week 13.
