Listen: Carson Wentz, Eagles And Cowboys discussed on SportsRadio 94WIP Nights and Weekends
"Four w I. I agree. Ninety four w I. It's quote unquote cowboy week I'm not feeling here tonight. And it might be the fact that we jumped into Thursday night football. It had no impact on a home standing. Philadelphia Eagles to AFC team space off. The whole do the deal to get Marcus mariota thing is now. Well, over the eagles didn't get them when they had the chance to give up a massive deal to move up into graft and take him Dan ended up with Carson Wentz. Anyway, a year later, and for the most part you go pans have been happy with Carson Wentz as well. He should be to this point. Carson Wentz has had when he's at the top of his game. He's been more impressive than markets. Mariota tastes. As some the market mariota's got the Carson Winston have that's a playoff win. Mario didn't win a playoff game. Last year. Carson Wentz doesn't have one. And Carson Wentz really doesn't even have a signature regular season win. He had some really nice wins last year and helping eagles get out to the fast start and ended up with the best record overall knee NFC. But the biggest games were at the end of the season the ram game that day one which Cranston had a big hand in on. But he didn't finish. He gets like a half a win on that one. Maybe even three quarters a win, but not a complete win. I think this is a referendum game. For Carson Wentz. There's a key game for Carson Wentz not a career making game or a career breaking game. But a referendum game. A statement game. For Carson Wentz eagle fans. How much confidence do you have pain? Carson Wentz you need to get on my bones. Eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four or tweet to show at Jodi McMahon. J O D YM ACM A N got a decent tweet within the last twenty something minutes from Joel the Heff who says Jodi, no. Yeah. He gives me a hard time. No, where's the one that from Patrick now who says Johnny Matt great show enjoyed listening. Can you point out Jared goff's signature win looking at his track record since he came into the league yet? Can it was a couple of weeks ago? Who's a primetime game against the Kansas City Chiefs. It's a game in which both teams put up fifty points. The Rams put up fifty four the chiefs only put up fifty one. Yes. In the game. Patrick Mahomes to chiefs quarterback do for more yards four hundred seventy eight as compared to four hundred thirteen for gov for more touchdowns six as compared to Gough will only two four he stat. I n tease Patrick Mahomes three Jared Goff. None. And his team won the football game. At the time the Kansas City Chiefs were undefeated. Now, it wasn't an NFC matchup was an interconference matchup. But it was a statement game. It was a referendum type game and Jared Goff ended up on the long end of it. It was an offensive shootout to win a hell of a lot of defense played on either side of the ball and Patrick gnomes had pretty damn good game himself but Jared Goff did win that game. And when you win a game Andro four hundred thirteen yards and four touchdowns no interceptions referendum game. And it was answered. Yes by Jared Goff. So I'll tell you that. Yes. Jarred GOP has one more referendum game in his career. Then Carson Wentz. Does this could be one for Carson Wentz? Gimme gimme. A Carson Wentz. Look into the crystal ball on his effort coming out against the Cowboys on Sunday. Eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four Jerry from northeast belly up on ninety four WIP. Tony, how are you? Hey, jerry. How are ya Jerry? I met you about twenty years ago at a Holy Ghost my younger played baseball for those at their was like a practice. They had a guest speaker, very nice. We were talking about the Cowboys address for Iraq. 'cause it was like right near the early nineties. It was all I'm trying to our colleague Bruce Sturt route thirteen maybe. Yes. Yeah. Okay. I remember see I haven't forgotten every day. So excuse suffered a game. I'm use Cowboys. Embiid multi nineteen seventy five. I think this is going to be a good game as always. Should win this game pretty handily. Bob. You know, what I seen what I've listened to. I listened a lot of doubts Bryan brought us down in and out of Austin to start down Aaron Lauder reports. I really followed or you know, what they're doing. And one thing. I heard the eagles talk about the team the team. You know, this eagles teams get got old quick in my opinion. And they've had some major act and what happened laser I never seen a team win with free agents like eagles that last year. That was amazing. And you know, where Lewis this year doused gonna be around. I take a long time. They all you know, Jerry Jones are one last, but he doesn't run the show them. Whereas is kids Stephen dozen. Don't don't kid yourself. But we'll McClay who runs through draft. Really as fused. Some mice junk town. Not that out get he's been very good in the first round. But a quick question for you. Where the eagles got Nolde. I think their offensive line. All right Peters Peters is is. Starting to show major cracks. I'll give you that. I think Kelsey is getting older counselors played. Well, the last couple of weeks. Yeah. You know, I still don't think lane John's has been the same since he's and on the. Now, that's that's not getting old. And oh, by the way, lane Johnson. Last year was arguably the bats. He was certainly the unquestioned Beth, right? Tackle in all of the ball. And he might have been the best tackle period left or right side. Now, he's not having a good year. They Jere if you're chalking update, he he's not old by NFL standards. You might be onto something that I Sunder position to Joe the running back. I mean Adams's I think could be age eastside look at sproles. You look at their their wide receivers. Are you know, getting a little longer there may once? Oh, all these twenty. Why he's not that good though. And that's another argument. Yeah. I think. Hey, you know, what I just think they else is going broke. You'd think the Cowboys are the better team. You can because they are a gay man ahead. They came in here to Philadelphia and beat the eagles and couple of weeks ago. You can certainly make the argument for the Cowboys winning his game. Oh, by the way, they're doing air point favorites. So they're supposed to witness game. Do so for the right reasons don't make stuff up to try and put the eagles in a position that they're not really in. I sick over the last couple of years. Joe a look at the draft. And I think it's starting to show at their desk physicians were to real what I took that have you noticed a kind of season. He's having I'll yeah. But that wasn't always draft. Roll it. You said the last couple of years. Yeah. Well, I would I would include Zach ertz in that the eagles drafts have been okay. They have not been whirlwinds. They haven't been great. Certainly that Carson Wentz guy is a how we draft. So I don't know how you knocked that. Yeah. They went dueling tight ends this year. And that hasn't worked out just yes. But to how he's credit. He went out and added Matthews re rekindled Matthews here in town and got Golden State because the dueling tight end plan that they had in place didn't work out as well. As opposed to Dallas Goddard has been a bit of a disappointment. Maybe I'd like a whole bunch of other eagle fans, and maybe even eagle employees. Overestimated what God could do. Because of what he did in preseason. That's why. You gotta be careful with preseason. Yup. Have to give it it's just do. But you can't overstate it. You can't overreact to it. 'cause guttered look great in a preseason and the seasons come along. And he's been a pretty much non factor but eagles in passing game if they didn't have the additions that they had out to the outside the wide receiver position. They would be short on weapons for Carson Wentz. But golden Tate's addition. And I think that last week portends well for the last four weeks of the season and MAC use being reincorporated cooperated into the offense has given eagles left. Now, what is Darren sproles going to be the last weeks of the season. I got no idea. I have no idea whatsoever. Eight look spry out there on one run against the Redskins last week. I was glad to see they didn't try an overuse them. And there was a little bit of a fear that they might do that. Because I think the coaching staff loved them, I know his teammates love them. But they brought him along nicely. He could still be a factor between now and he ended the season if the Cowboys beat the eagles on Sunday, it's not going to be because the eagles have gotten old. I just don't agree with that a. Yeah, we're we're reaching the end of Jason Peters run. I think that's fair to say but other than that who's Kelsey Kelsey out of a pretty strong game. The other night against the Redskins. We've written Kelsey off before and he's bounced back and been a key cog in a Super Bowl winning offensive line. So I'd be careful with writing off. Jason Kelsey Jess yet. I don't see it as age. I don't think that's the factor. Mackin Jenkins's is bigger background. They have. And where would this secondary be? If they didn't have Malcolm Jenkins damn they'd be absolutely not where I. We are from a cowboy fan who said the Cowboys are gonna win because the eagles have gotten old right before our very eyes. I tried to say I disagree with that. There's an argument to be made the Cowboys are gonna win this game. They have had a better season. They have been hotter of late. Even though the eagles of one two zero one more than add any Cowboys have beaten better teams, including the saints along the way rather than just the Redskins and the giants who the eagles are beaten so eagle fan jury cowboy fan check in and said sorry eagles. Hope you enjoyed the Super Bowl parade. 'cause you've got an old the Cowboys are better this week. And the Cowboys are better going forward. How do you respond to that ego fans? Get on my telephone lines eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four. I've been meaning to give you this Phillies trade which came down earlier tonight. I was here watching Thursday night football and the flyers cough up a point at home tonight. They did get two goals in the third period. Down three one tied it up Senate to overtime, and it took them all ten seconds delusion oh tape, but they did get a point at home tonight against Columbus. I was watching that. And I saw this on Twitter. Matt Clinton makes a deal with his old squad the California Angels in a swap of middle relief pitchers the Phillies acquire lefty Jose Alvarez who has been in the angel bullpen the last. Five years. Fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen and eighteen mostly with the angels has spent some time in triple A and sixteen and seventeen last year. He spent all his time in the major leagues appeared in seventy six games. What he angels last year and pitch to a pretty respectable two point seven one, right? He's a little bit more than lefty specialists, but he specifically good against left handers. Seventy six game sixty three innings when you're less than an meaning per outing. Yeah, there's come in and get a tough guy out, and we'll get you out of the game type appearances. He gave up just fifty one hits in sixty three innings. Struck out fifty nine almost one per one little below walks only. Okay. Let's you're twenty two the year before he had struck out forty five and forty eight innings. He'd only walk twelve says walks through up little ash this past year, but his head sprayings were down only give up fifty one hits in sixty three innings to seven one ERA Jose Alvarez twenty nine year old arbitration eligible reliever the villi send to the California, Los Angeles outside. Anaheim angels Luis Garcia who like Mr. Alvarez. Has been part of the Philly pen for a good. Couple of years now thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen and eighteen. I've seen enough of Luis Garcia. He's not a bad reliever. But he's not in special. He's also thirty one euro Alvarez's twenty nine neither one of these guys then turn your panorama, and I can guarantee you that. But Defillo he's got the younger guy. And I got the guy coming off the better year and again looking to get some balance in their bullpen the Phillies were short on left-handers last year the ad pays."
