Ertz would be nice as would Julio.....just don't think they are likely to happen anymore and Julio was never going to happen as that is just the press stirring the pot. We already brought and aging TY back on a 1-Year deal that will likely stunt the growth of the young guys they drafted for Veteran leadership in the WR Room. We shall see, stranger things have happened.....like Paye dropping to us at 21!!!!!!
I think the National Media is scared, scared to admit that Philly just ran a Franchise QB out of town all while firing the head coach that "supposedly" didn't even speak with his QB for the majority of the season! Seems like the disconnect starts at the top to me.....but this article is straight hot garbage! Funny thing is Donovan McNabb was a fairly successful QB in Philly and they booed him starting on draft day thru the end of his career! LOL
"Though head coach Frank Reich is confident he and staff can get Wentz back to form, USA TODAY’s Mike Jones is less bullish on the situation for the Colts. In ranking every team’s quarterbacks by tiers, Wentz found himself in the bottom tier listed as “shaky” along with some other questionable quarterbacks.
Indianapolis Colts Carson Wentz’s 2020 season got off to a bad start behind an injury-plagued line, and he never recovered. Overwhelmed both by defenses and the pressure of Jalen Hurts’ presence, Wentz looked like a shell of himself. Can former Philadelphia offensive coordinator Frank Reich fix Wentz by inserting him into a stronger squad with a more reliable line than the Eagles had to offer?
Among the other teams also listed in the “shaky” tier included the New Orleans Saints (Taysom Hill, Jameis Winston), New York Giants (Daniel Jones), Denver Broncos (Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater), Washington Football Team (Ryan Fitzptrick) and a potentially Deshaun Watson-less Houston Texans (Davis Mills, Tyrod Taylor)."
Career Stats including 9 comebacks and 10 game winning drives and there are only 13 starting QB's in the NFL with higher QBR's. These stats are not even comparable to the pedestrian types of numbers these other QB's have put up. I mean seriously.....USA Today got their clickbait that they wanted but this is pure filth. Sorry not sorry.

Every QB, no matter how good they are have had at least one year (not counting their rookie year) that was considered a "down" year and some have had several of those years - go look them up on profootballreference.com if you like, but all of the greats had down years in their career! It is hard to be consistently great year in and year out. Last year was a blip and the Eagles WILL regret giving up on Carson Wentz before he's even realized his full potential!
Carson Wentz WILL BE a stud here in Indy and will pass for +/- 4k a year and +/- 30 TD's a year for the foreseeable future and Chris Ballard will look like a genius for the 3rd and 1st or 2nd round picks given up while the Eagles will fade back into last in the NFC East for the foreseeable future. We have tightends that can attack all three layers of the defense now, we have wide receivers that can attack all three layers of the defense, a three headed monster of a running game, one of the best o-lines in the game and three running backs that can absolutely catch and run out of the backfield as well. Plus the added benefit of backyard ball when a play breaks down - reminiscent of the days when Andrew Luck would create with his legs and connect on a deep pass to TY or Moncreif when the defense broke down.....
Come on folks, jump onto the positivity train now before all the seats are taken!
