Facing Washington shows why Eagles need a franchise quarterback

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Zach Berman writes for Philly.com about how the Eagles can take a lesson from the Redskins' turnaround and build around a franchise quarterback moving forward.

With the Philadelphia Eagles facing off against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins today, Inquirer staff writer Zach Berman wrote about the impact of a franchise quarterback at Philly.com.

The Eagles can take a lesson from Washington's turnaround, Berman writes:

The Redskins arrive in Philadelphia for Sunday's game against the Eagles at 8-6. They control their postseason fate. They can win the division that they haven't topped since 1999. The single biggest reason is their acquisition of a franchise quarterback. ... This is the biggest concern surrounding the future of the Eagles.

Head over to Philly.com to read Berman's entire argument and whether he thinks Nick Foles is the man for the job.
