    I would think Mullens should be considered more than just a camp arm. The hilarity of the sign/release of Jamie Newman makes me think that the Eagles actually want some stability and depth at the position. Is Mullens a franchise QB? No I do not believe so. Is he capable of being a spot starter who provides quality depth? I do believe this to be the case. Considering they have Hurts who will prove to be overmatched this year as their currently penciled in starting QB Mullens should be viewed as a quality signing at this point in the off season.

    Eagles signed QB Nick Mullens, formerly of the 49ers.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane said the team may have signed Mullens -- who started eight games for the Niners in 2020 -- as a camp arm. Mullens has been erratic in 16 NFL starts, throwing 25 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. The Eagles seem committed to Joe Flacco as a backup for Jalen Hurts this year, making it unlikely Mullens will be active on game days if he makes the team.

    Good news for Mullens. Definitely think he has potential to beat out Flacco at this point in his career. He should be 2nd QB, probably make a few spot starts again as well.

    Eagles trade for Gardner Minshew. He’s better than Hurts already. Flacco is better than Hurts as well.

    Wow! Great trade for the Eagles!

    Minshew is a legitimate starter. They picked him up for a conditional pick, either a 6th or 5th. Even if it's a 5th it's a steal.

    The Eagles took advantage of the fact that white quarterbacks are underrated by the MSM because of their racial prejudice. thereby reducing their value.

    So now this idiot Urban Meyer has gotten rid of two quality white players, Minshew and Joe Schobert, for peanuts.

    Self-defeating idiots like Urban Meyer can do the other teams as many favors like this as he indirectly wants. His team will tank and I'll rejoice.

    I look forward to Minshew getting the start sometime this season one way or another. He's out from under the Meyer clod (yes, "clod" not cloud) and it's all the better.

    So Eagles give up on Hurts already?

    The spin is that Minshew provides "great depth" as the number 3 QB. Flacco played well this preseason/Hurts barely played. It's an odd situation as Hurts seems to have been gifted the starting job.

    ah of course. Not really that odd considering 90 percent of QB battles in NFL and College have gone to Quotabacks.

    Looking in my inbox just now I see the following two headlines. This is just a very tiny microcosm of the daily media blitz in favor of Black QBs and Black athletes in general. It's no surprise that the vast majority of DWFs have been successfully trained to follow the cues of the fake news media:

    Jamey Eisenberg's Breakouts 3.0 lean on young talent like Jerry Jeudy, Jalen Hurts

    Who is Jamey Eisenberg? What are his qualifications, if any? Has he ever played football?

    These guys appear from nowhere and are all of a sudden presented as experts.

    Last year's stats.

    Gardner Minshew 66.1 comp. % 16 TDs 5 INT rating 95.9

    Jalen Hurts 52.0 comp. % 6 TDs 4 INT rating 77.6

    Minshew is a much better quarterback than Hurts.

    The MSM would have us believe that Hurts deserves to be the starter over Minshew. There's no other reason for this other than Hurts is black and Minshew is white and they want black quarterbacks playing over white quarterbacks even if the white quarterbacks are much better . They're black supremacists and anti-white racists.
