Default Sudfeld-Another Redskin gaff!!

“Carson and Nick are excellent, but I’m telling you there is a reason why the Eagles held on to Nate, and that’s because he’s going to be a really, really good football player,” DeFilippo said. “Why do you think other teams wanted him? Against the Dallas [starters], Nate played fantastic. That kid is going to be a really, really good football player. He’s a really good football player right now. But I am telling you, that kid has a chance to be a really good football player."

Sounds like he's trying to convince us to trade Nick.

I think the only question I still have is - does he think Sudfeld's a really good football player?

Yes, I think Sudfeld is somewhere between good and very good, but definitely a football player.

Yeah. He seems strangely reluctant to even hint at his opinion on that question.

I only go by what I see on the field. Sudfeld was a good college football player and the short time we saw him and the 3's against Dallas number 1's he showed some potential. We don't get to see the practices and such but I can easily see why they would be high on him. I would be comfortable with him as a the backup.

It’s an interesting numbers game. If Wentz is healthy to start the season hard to imagine Birds carrying 3 QBs. On the other hand, they clearly like Suds & Bubbles so won’t want to lose him. Does that push them to trade BDN? Does it push them to IR Wentz for the first 8 games if he is 4 weeks away at start of season? These are issues, but good issues. Being QB rich in the NFL is rare.

This is a tough situation. Let’s assume a few things that are likely but not definite:
1. Wentz will miss the first 3-4 weeks. Again it’s possible that he comes back sooner but it’s more likely that he will need at least 9 months to fully recover.
2. When he does come back he will need several weeks to get back into “football shape” and get his timing down with the rest of the team. (We saw how Foles looked at the end of the year when he hadn’t practiced at all with the team. It’s reasonable to assume that Wentz will be in a similar situation.

So given those two assumptions, it’s pretty clear that Foles gives us our best chance to win next year. If Wentz is out for 4 weeks, given our schedule next year (which is petty damned tough!) does anyone expect Sudfeld to step in and win right away? Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and say he goes 2-2. Then Wentz steps in and needs time to get back his form. If he goes 2-2 in his first 4 games we will be in a tough spot with 4 losses already on the books by the time we hit the half way mark. Even if they finish the year strong and manage to go 6-2 the rest of the way, there is no guarantee that 10-6 even makes the playoffs.

I really don’t want to be in a position of falling back like that because we traded away Foles for a draft pick. No one we get with that pick will have a chance to make as big of an impact next year as Foles will. Even if he only plays 4 games he may be the difference between making the playoffs or not. We can’t afford to trade him if we want a chance to defend the title.
