After 11 memorable seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Donovan McNabb arguably ended his carer as the top quarterback in franchise history.
But for Carson Wentz to surpass him, McNabb says the 26-year-old pivot must be successful in the postseason and improve his durability. Otherwise, the team should move on and "possibly draft another quarterback."
"I think in the next two years or so, (Wentz) needs to find a way to get out of the second round of the playoffs," McNabb said on The Zach Gelb Show, according to EJ Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"What Nick Foles was able to do, take them to a Super Bowl and then possibly take them back to the NFC Championship proves that, hey, some people can get into that offense and be very successful," he added.
Wentz is rehabbing his second season-ending injury in as many years.
A torn ACL and LCL cut his dominant 2017 season short, allowing Foles to lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl win. Wentz returned in Week 3 this past season, but lingering back issues shelved him yet again with three games remaining.
