John McMullen: On Deshaun Watson, Zach Ertz and the circus coming to town

If you believe it's going to be a little awkward in South Philadelphia when Zach Ertz reports for training camp with the Eagles, try South Texas over the weekend when Deshaun Watson was faced with a decision — show up for the Texans or face up to $50,000 in fines for every day missed.

John McMullen: Have the Eagles gotten conservative at quarterback?

A large portion of the very fanbase that makes Howie Roseman go for the darkest tint at the car dealership or calls for the unemployment of the Eagles GM at every opportunity, be it a chant at a Phillies game or the comments section of altruistic Autism pieces on the team's website, is also somehow convinced that Jalen Hurts is the answer at quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
