This is huge and potentially damaging to the Philadelphia Eagles future going forward.
On Monday, Philly Voice put out a pretty in-depth report filled with a ton of unnamed people that ripped into starting quarterback Carson Wentz and how he handles himself around the rest of the team.
Here’s what Santoliquito wrote about the Eagles’ apparently explosive situation:
His aw-shucks, overgrown-Opie-from-Mayberry routine plays well with the local and national media. Indeed, sources describe Wentz as “incredibly hard working,” “determined,” and “highly intelligent.” But the true Wentz is more nuanced and complicated, with sources describing him as “selfish,” “uncompromising,” “egotistical,” one who plays “favorites” and doesn’t like to be “questioned,” one who needs to “practice what he preaches” and fails “to take accountability.”
…. The glaring difference is that Foles, every source stated, would go through progressions within the offense — exactly how it was designed to run — and hit the open receiver, regardless of who it was or where they were on the field. Wentz only saw, it seemed, one receiver the majority of the season: Zach Ertz. This understandably frustrated the rest of the offense, considering other receivers were open downfield. To stop the Eagles in 2018 under Wentz was rather easy: Stop No. 86.
Wentz’s season ended early when he suffered a fracture to his back and once Nick Foles took over, the team began to play like the Super Bowl champs from last season to get themselves into the playoff mix and even defeat the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round.
Before his injury, Wentz was completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 3,074 yards, 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
