Just typing out that headline makes my head hurt.

The stud wide receiver that the Eagles passed on thinks they should start the backup quarterback they should have never drafted in the first place.

Here he is responding to ESPN’s Jordan Schultz on Instagram:

Well of course he wants the rookie QB to start his first NFL game on Monday Night Football. Makes it easier for his team to win…

Right? The Eagles have a better chance to win with Carson Wentz under center on Monday night? I’m not even sure at this point.

Metcalf actually played against Hurts twice during his college career. Hurts started the 2017 game, which Alabama won 66-3, and scored three touchdowns while compiling 100 rushing yards. In 2018, a 62-7 Bama win, Tua Tagovailoa started but Hurts came in to throw for a pair of scores in mop up duty.

So Metcalf has twice had his ass kicked by Hurts and Bama and obviously feels like the guy can play. Or perhaps this is just gamesmanship. Maybe it’s both at the same time. What we do know is that Metcalf is not the only person who feels Hurts should be starting for the Eagles moving forward.
