I would be willing to put up with two more bad seasons if we get the chance to draft Johnny Football

Posted December 08, 2012

Let's face it folks. The Eagles are heading for a complete and total rebuilding. During the off-season, this roster will be blown up along with the coaching staff. A spring cleaning is in order. That said, I still believe there are question marks at the most important position. At quarterback.

I don't think Nick Foles is not the answer. I KNOW he's not the answer. So far I see nothing more than a below average to mediocre QB at best. Franchise QBs don't just fall out of the sky. This is a fact. That said, I think we may have just seen a kid that will not just be a franchise cornerstone, but a man that will revolutionize the game. 

His name? Johnny Manziel. Most of you know him as the aptly-named "Johnny Football." I realize this year may have been a down year for college QBs and the Heisman trophy in general, but this doesn't cheapen what he has accomplished. No freshman had ever won the Heisman. EVER. That is until tonight. It's no small feat. It takes a very, VERY special player to do what he just did.

This is why I pose this question to my fellow Eagles fans. Would you be willing to put up with a couple more dismal seasons if the result was the chance to pick Johnny Football when he goes pro? I'd say it's absolutely worth it. Ask the Redskins fans. They'll probably say the same about RG III.
