According to former Eagle Jason Avant, things started going south when quarterback Carson Wentz was shut down due to a fracture in his back.
Nick Foles would replace Wentz for a second consecutive season after he led the team’s Super Bowl 52 push.
“In 2018, this is where the mindset of Carson — to me — with the organization changed,” Avant told NBCSP’s John Clark.
Jason Avant coached with Eagles last year. He believes issues with Eagles/Carson Wentz started 2018
“Carson was playing through injury. Carson wanted to play. The organization chose against Carson’s wishes to play Nick Foles”

“They were not going to the playoffs, Carson was dealing with the back issue and he was playing through injury. Carson wanted to play. The organization chose against Carson’s wishes to play Nick Foles. Nick Foles (then) revives the season.”
