Chance Warmack is Eagles’ new starting left guard

Chance Warmack has been bumped up to starting left guard for the Philadelphia Eagles, his teammates report. This comes after a poor performance for Isaac Seumalo. After a Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017 loss to the Chiefs, some suggested that perhaps Seumalo should be benched. But the Eagles came out and said they would stick with Seumalo.

Chance Warmack bumped to starting left guard

According to sources like ESPN’s Eagles beat reporter Tim McManus, Chance Warmack is the new starting left guard.

McManus writes that the Eagles locker room seems turmoil-free after the move. Running back LeGarrette Blount commented that “[Warmack] was obviously good enough to get picked in the first.” Starting quarterback Carson Wentz allowed that, “I don’t know exactly what’s going on with all that.”

Still others such as Eagles beat reporter Jeff McLane reveal that this may not be the best change. Brandon Brooks supposedly commented “You don’t want to kill [Seumalo’s] confidence this early in his career.”

It’s an unusual move to say the least considering Philly’s statement that, no, they were not going to bench Seumalo. Days later, Warmack replaces him in practice as confirmed by his teammates. Regardless, at least head coach Doug Pederson hasn’t pulled a Chip Kelly and traded away the majority of his players. Nevertheless, it’s important to provide players an opportunity. And benching Seumalo so early after poor performances may hurt his career in taking away his confidence as Brooks suggests.

Your turn: Should Warmack take Seumalo’s place so soon?
