“Carson Wentz Says It Wasn’t Fun With Philly Before Trade”

 

Look at the headline from Mike Wells... dear god... 

 

Carson: “I’d like to have a fresh start and move on. The past is in the past.”

 

Trash media: cArSoN wEnTz DiDn’T hAvE fUn In PhIlLy...

Wentz actually said it wasn’t fun being benched. Some media is ridiculous.

Stellar interview on Pat McAfee’s show with Carson today. As someone who was worried about how thick his skin is and how much criticism he can take, it was awesome to watch. Was able to joke around and take it all in stride. Pat was openly critical in the past and brought that up on the show.

 

Sorry I don’t have a link.

I don't think that is the while thing but it is part of it.

 

Be aware Pat sometimes uses NSFW language.

I laughed so hard. I posted a bunch more segments in the Carson Wentz number thread. Carson seems like a fun guy to be around. Seeing him in this interview really makes me question eagles media saying he didn’t get along with some players.

Believe me he is fun to be around. I’ve met him on a handful of occasions when he went to NDSU. Classy dude and Philly didn’t deserve him. He’s in a much much better place now

Its likely he didn't get along with some players. That doesn't mean he was the problem. Philly isn't known for its locker room...

from ready articles it seems like the philly locker room thought wentz was boring being a  super religious and up tight guy.  The cultural differences from the mid west to philly are a lot to deal with .

In regards to the fans and media sure. But locker rooms have guys from all backgrounds though. Q is actually from New Jersey. I doubt locker rooms vary based on where they are located...it’s typically top-down culture.

it could also be the players the eagles are bringing in ..   if the reports are true wentz will not hang out with them and be one of the guys .   i know the team did celebrate at a night club after winning the super bowl , but wentz does not like that scene .

He also mentioned how players this past season couldn’t even hang out in the cafeteria and eat meals together because of covid. Yes all teams had the same rules but I can understand how relationships might of been hard with all the covid rules. Some teams handled it better then others.

I think Wentz will be great here, but we need to get him some weapons. Right now our top 3 WR's are Pittman (who for the record I think will be great but he's only entering his second year), Pascal (a decent #2 but probably ideally more of a 3), and Campbell (a guy who has all the potential in the world but just can't stay healthy so far).....

 

Then you add Doyle and MAC at TE and.... It's not exactly a group of weapons that is going to scare anyone.

 I especially liked the part from post interview where Mac admitted he trashed Wentz for no longer loving the game even though Mac hadn't done his homework on who Wentz really was. Wentz had been just a name in a headline and Mac had spouted off in the moment because well, bla bla bla!
Wentz was above it!

I think Ertz is going to end up here. They can’t seem to trade him. I do think TY will be back. Maybe we add a WR and a TE in the draft. I really want to see TY with a QB that can throw deep.

My fear is if they can't find a trade partner for Ertz (which I doubt they can at their supposed asking price) that they'll opt to keep him to give Hurts another weapon rather than cut him loose.

I got benched once in high school for a really awful false start penalty. It was so much fun, I begged my coach to bench me every game just so I could feel that rush again

    • 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.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
