Eagles Players Are Turning On Carson Wentz

Eagles players are turning on Carson Wentz, it appears.

Despite coming into this season as some people’s favorites to win their division, Philadelphia has struggled somewhat in the early going.

Through six games the Eagles sit at 3-3, and they are currently coming off a particularly rough 38-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

While part of the blame for Philly’s struggles can certainly be attributed to injuries, some of it is also due to Wentz’s inability to capitalize on his apparent potential.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson appeared on NFL Live this week and indicated that at least one player is unhappy with the team’s quarterback play.

“‘We need to make bleep simpler. Sometimes we need to just handle what is manageable. Even Peyton Manning knew when to check it down,'” she recounted the anonymous player saying.

“Carson Wentz right now is 38-percent on passes that travel 15 air yards, has three interceptions on passes like that, which is tied for most in the league,” Anderson continued.

“He also has 148 passes on those that are 10 yards or fewer, right now he has nine touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes like that so I do think it is an apt point.”
