I'm not gonna lie, I saw a lot of Andrew in those highlights especially the escapes. 

If there's anyone that can revive his career, it's Frank Reich and the Colts.

I know they’re highlights, but that was great.  I kept changing the receivers.  Instead of Sproles (fantastic RAC), it was Hines.  Pittman, TY, Pascal, etc.

 

I wonder if Ertz will end up in Indy too?

A ton of impressive throws and evading pressure.    He hasn't forgotten how to do that.   Hopefully last year was just a combo of bad protection and lack of confidence 

Absolutely and you can also add awful coaching, terrible team/no good weapons and I also find it interesting that the 7 games Wentz lost last year here were 5 of those teams...

Rams, Ravens(almost beat), Steelers, Browns, Seahawks... So take that for what it’s worth as well.

Let Ballard worry about that.   Free agency hasn't even started yet.

Well let’s hope he doesn’t pull an Andrew Luck and retire in September

Actually I won’t. One, I ain’t spending that kind of money on shirt. Two, if I do, it’s gonna be for Big Q or Buckner.

You might want to watch this too for a more realistic evaluation of the QB he's been lately 

 

Anyone else notice the resemblance in his throws in this clip to one Peyton Manning his last season? The fluttering? 
 

then look at how tight the spirals were in the highlight clips. 
 

 

then compare his footwork and throwing motion. Something drastically changed. It’s like two different QBs

Concerning, but fixable. A lot of those balls have footwork issues.

One thing that really jumps off the screen at me when watching the highlights is the Eagles O-Line and how terrible it was in the video. Holy cow, he didn’t have much time to get it thrown. He had some great evasive moves for sure but I think he’s really going to appreciate the Colts O-Line.

Thats some good stuff!!   So I watched and saw that during that season CW didnt rely on TE's as much then.  Did I miss something?

 

Also are CW and Agelore on good terms?    I thought he was one complaining about Wentz?  I could be wrong. 

 

If not.  Need to get him to Indy

Back to fundamentals, QB mechanics and confidence restructuring, trusting in Reich for now.

 

Both Reich and Wentz now know what it is to be a fallback option, good to have 2 guys with similar chips on their shoulders.

Add in the assistant that came over  to that equation.    This is going to be special!    I hope

Some of these are throw always too because of pressure. Some are throwing them to where only the WR has a chance, low risk- big reward....I can make a low light video like this and make Brady look bad. The reality is somewhere in between the highlights and this low light video is where the truth lies. We should surely all know that.

The Eagles "winning" the trade or the Colts "winning" the trade right now can only be subjectively debated. We make the playoffs and we win the trade, IMO. The results will determine that eventually. 

 

Everything else is whatever helps parties on either side sleep at night. :)

It's not a "low light video" if that was the majority of 2020

 

You don't just brush off his last season because he was an MVP candidate years before

You also don't disregard his talent by being on a team that couldn't keep him upright either.

Which is not entirely his OL's fault

He takes the 8th most sacks on the 16th most pressures in the league

 

If anyone can fix him I suppose it's Frank but I'm not gonna act like we're getting the best version of Wentz

I guess that's the difference of mindsets between a pessimist and a optimist. :dunno:

You can call me a pessimist all you want it doesn't change the fact that I've thrown nothing but stats and video proof at you

I realize he had a down year but a 2 minute video designed to make him look terrible is not an accurate representation is what I’m saying. Some of his highlight video was from last year as well... how about we try not to be a negative Nancy

He has the long, sidewinding motion that I'm not wild about. If the footwork isn't good and he's favoring an injury (the ACL?), his O line is getting him hit, speeding up his mental clock ect.. you can see things adding up.

If you are throwing nothing but what you perceive as negative, then you are disregarding anything positive. 

It's your choice.

Not to take sides TV.  But this is a whole different team than what 11 played for before.    Imagine taking a job where you didn't have to carry the company.   Imagine having someone like 53, 99, and 23 among other that have your back.

 

If he fails it will not because he not in the perfect situation.   Give it a chance.   I think you will see a Carson Wentz that is far different than anyone has seen. He has support and a legitimate team that WILL rally around him. Thick or thin   No fingers pointed. He's not been in this environment before.   Chris Ballard has built the ultimate environment for success for 11 

 

Enjoy the ride    And "dont Worry bout a ting!"

 

Yes I am an optimist like Crazy.    Just saying why wouldn't you be?

 

Nothing in the world is greater than HOPE

Reich has said he can fix Wentz and I'm gonna believe that.

I didn't realize Wentz was high school valedictorian and graduated college with a 4.0.  You see people rattle off a list of his physical skills, but I'm not sure I've seen anyone refer to him as a smart football player.  That should be one of his biggest goals - becoming known as a smart football player.  Win with your mind, Manning style.

There's a difference between being a pessimist and a realist. I'm optimistic that Wentz will be great, but there's a very real possibility that he won't be. That's not pessimism. It's just being prepared for all reasonable possible outcomes.

    • You have to NOT Believe in getting better, and try as i might i can't get the Bracket comparison. Bracket became pretty decent against the run but his height/length was a weakness dropping in coverage.  Oke seems the opposite. As of today.  Some think he has a brain and that experience should benefit him in all areas of his game. This should be a really good learning year for him.
    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
