You have to wonder if Reuben Frank, an Eagles analyst who usually spouts nothing but conventional wisdom, knew his microphone was on when he uttered this brain fart about Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford:
“I think he’s going to retire, honestly,” Frank said on “Quick Slants,” a CSN show. “The guy’s made what? $95-$100 million?”
Remember, this was his opinion, and he said it live on television even though he had no facts to back it up such as a conversation with Bradford or his agent or Howie Boy Roseman.
“I think he’s going to retire. I think he’s had enough. I don’t think he wants to be here. Honestly, I don’t think anybody else wants him. Maybe you get a 3rd rounder for him, I doubt it. I think it’s done, I think it’s over with. I think Chase Daniel starts your season, plays five or six games, and then Carson Wentz comes in and is your quarterback for the next ten years. This time next year we’re saying, ‘Sam who? Who was that guy we had last year that retired? What ever happened to him?'”
