Report: Philadelphia Eagles are telling head coach candidates they want Carson Wentz back in 2021
"Eagles coaching search. Carson Wentz, how he relates that again for those who missed him. Might Gara follow with a report out today, saying that the Eagles are telling head coaching candidates people they're interviewing that they want to keep Carson ones they want to. Fixed Carson Wentz and that that is a big part of the coaching search. So how do you feel about that? Because Ellie now you're not to use like Are you surprised about it? That's the question. I think we've had so much talk of Will they attach themselves to Carson. Is this actually the route They're going to go? Some people have said Look, they're definitely not trading Carson. The money is too much. If they're telling head coaching, Candace, I think that one aspect you could look at it. Is this getting out because they want to make teams think they're not trading him. But presumably, I know I hate to play guess the source. But if Gary follow is saying they're telling candidates this It seems to be coming from the candidates or from someone who's interviewed, so they have no incentive to hype up the Carson Wentz trade. But you know, who knows? Maybe a candidate went thinking you'd have more of a say Heard that Carson was the guy and let people know like Whoa, They're really gonna do this. No, it Xan interesting situation, to say the least. And that when we saw it coming, I certainly I thought that after how it all went down, regardless what out with Doug? And of course, we all thought it was actually coming back when the season ended exchange quickly around here radio. But even in light of all that it just It felt like to me. There was just Too much too much baggage. It was too far gone the relationship that it would be better for everybody for Carson and physicals, toe move forward separately and change of scenery and all that type of stuff and Well, here's a question me that way. So obviously the Eagles have Carson under contract they control where he will play next year. But I've also said that and we see it no, of all the league's honestly if a player wants out, he finds his way out. I mean, it very rarely do teams make a player stay that does not want to be there, especially at such a critical position like quarterback. If the Eagles are committed to keeping Carson But Carson keeps up that he doesn't want to be here. Like what do they do? Do you forced Carson out? Do you keep him? I mean, I just It puts him in a tough situation because you know you don't your franchise guy to come in here, especially. He's already having locker room problems with the mindset of this guy got the coach. Fire doesn't want to be here and now he's leading the huddle like that's not an ideal situation to

"And everybody's like man, that's kind of weaselly that he did it that way. But when you know time passes and you realize that everything he was saying, here's to be lining up true and verified by Other players, other people in the organization. I think I refer as said two years ago. If this is true, then he is a ginger jerk. The guy is not a fit for this city. I mean, people here. You know your own up to your mistakes, you work harder to get better at stuff. And I'm glad is his little organization is called audience of one because that's all she's gonna be cheering for me is probably his wife. Wow. Yeah, Mark, I can't lie. I can't lie to you. And this is bad roundabout to savor. It appears Carson is an extremely religious person. And I don't know how he would justify to himself the way he behaved this year within the context of his religion. I don't even understand that I'm there to hear him speak, you say while that is somebody was grounded, really knows he's comfortable in his own skin. What? Wow, the stuff he was doing his incredible It's unbelievable. I can't believe Doug was as contained as he wa. So I could have done that. At some point I would have, I would have lost that I would have said. The quarterback amusing right out that thinks he's better than everybody else. He's terrible how to feel right now, and I can't deal with him. And he's got that passive aggressive baby way of stabbing people in the back. It comes across as completely hypocritical, You know, versus his message that he puts out there. You know, I love Jesus and all that. Okay, well, You know, you seem to be dumping on everybody around you. That puts up any kind of resistance to you know you're the Messiah cornerback and all that, so he does not fit in the city that he should not be allowed to wear that Jersey and represent our city and our team because You know the way he did dog that we don't do it around here like that. That is not And I don't know. Jeffrey. Lori. They must, you know, have some kind of, uh, delusional. Aspect of him because everybody else is seeing him and Howie. I guess maybe it's the contract and they're just, you know, trying to avoid saying, you know, we made a really another bad contract. So we're married to this guy. But that story. Really exposed that Carson Wentz is a hypocrite. And you know Peterson's gonna bounce back. I don't know that Carson Wentz will My great card can't thank you enough for your great import. I'm gonna keep this going out of the contest at some point, but I want to get your really pure reactions to what was written because I think he's done here, and I think there's only two people that don't know it. Yeah, and those are the two people that run the organization. You know, it's a big profit. I don't think they understand. And they're recruiting Alec coach basically on the basis of whether he can handle wet and I don't think based on what I read. He's not handling all he's not a day that this is a recipe for disaster.

Doug Pederson 'could be out' as Philadelphia Eagles head coach
"Other big story of the NFL off the field was Doug Peterson, and his future is shaky is as the Philadelphia Eagles head coach, You're talking about being removed, too. So think about this right? Because I've looked into this before, And I've said, like, okay if you win a Super Bowl How long does that give you as a head coach? Normally, it gives head coaches outside of Barry Switzer or a head coach like that's where you knew that that was more more about the team and switch. It was just kind of there. Try to manage the team. Normally, a Super Bowl gives you more than three years, especially If you make the playoffs, so Doug Peterson 2017 Super Bowl win 2000 and 18. There may be a dropped pass away from going back to the NFC championship game with Nick Foles is the quarterback 2019 they make the playoffs. Um Carson Wentz is out of the game because of a headshot. Seattle today v on Clowney. You saw what happened yesterday to John Walford and Jamal Adam's head shot. Right when he's outside of the pocket. Mm. That's something they're teaching Seattle. Yeah, in my opinion, but Doug Doug Peters don't like the Peterson hasn't had success that Peterson has had success. Terrible year this year for 11 and one. Nobody's doubting that. But it feels like normally if you just look at it from that perspective and say, like, all right, like, Yeah, Terrible year, he at least gets one year to run it back and trying to make things right. I mean, that's normally what happens in when you win a Super Bowl, So it's not like he wanted Super Bowl and then missed the playoffs in 2018, Mr Players in 2019 Terrible year in 2020, No. He made the playoffs three years in a row. But is somebody that lives and dies? With the Eagles? Being in Philly on? W W I pee every day. It just felt like that Something was off. Something was off with the quarterback and his relationship with him and something was off just with the entire team. All right, like normally Super Bowl winning coach. Not necessarily a great roster. We know that a bad roster lot of injuries, but still normally you get that year to run it back to make things right at least a year. Right? And Eagles owner Jeffrey Loria isn't a knee jerk reaction guy. He's not somebody that That goes out me. He churns through coaches and goes through coaches and goes through coaches. That's really not his mentality. But when he sees something's off, he'll real act and he saw that with Chip Kelly. Chip. Kelly became the toast of the NFL. His first year won 10 games. Second year won 10 games and then his third year. It was bad the players. The players obviously thought something was off with Chip Kelly. Doug Peterson pulled the trigger and got rid of him and brought in Doug Peterson in 2016. So it Something's often Philly and we will and we will see exactly what has up happening. But if they met on Tuesday, and the meeting did not go well, they're supposed to meet again. My money's on Doug Peterson not coming back or Here's the other thing. Or maybe it's that, but it's also Hey. This hot head coaching candidate who we really like. Oh, maybe he would be interested in coming here. Maybe a guy like Lincoln Riley. It was thought of as a as a great NFL head coach and Jeffrey Lori, the owner of the Eagles, is a guy that looks the college and said sees, Hey, what I want to run up the offense is doing now. Are we doing Ah West Coast offense that Doug Peterson runs that looks very dated or What about this innovative offense? That a guy like Lincoln Riley could bring? So is there a candidate out there that maybe is under the radar because it hasn't been reported that they secretly have interest in and maybe they heard back like, yeah. Maybe he would have some interest in coming here.

"Watch this film. And I think some people were noticing that aside, Why is he checking too? You know of one play with the box. You here doing it now, Of course, it isn't always runner past or you may be the direction of the runner, etcetera. But he's checking the run places in some cases where the box is full of the numbers aren't there? On guy think that was what you know, It was one example that was given to me. There was one example. Give me that. He spiked the ball into the ground. Almost gonna play that, um, wasn't exactly there. Um and I said, Well, you know how to do that on screen passes. When? When the place dead or some like that, they're like, no, no, no, no, it wasn't a screen pass. This is Carson wants changing place course someone's going road as a source told Jeff McClain. On, please, that weren't that weren't cold Course Someone's changing, please within the game, and you know, Mike and I had speculated this throughout the course of the season and really all you've got to do is watch the games and it's obvious. And specifically, I'll look back at the Browns game. And look at how that game went. Look at how that game started. Look at the script. The 1st 15 plays which are always scripted. What did the Eagles do in that game? Ran the ball down. The field member that day was a cold, rainy day in Cleveland. The Eagles ran the ball all the way down the field on the first possession. Mile Sanders fumbles inside the five and then eagles get relatively past happy the rest of the day and all I hear that noise. Why didn't dog run the ball more? Why didn't duck fee Mile Sanders Go watch the game again. I have watch how many times in that game. Carson Wentz is changing the play. It's obvious And it's the Eagles continue to throw the ball in that game in the rain. And in the wind. How much of that is Doug? And how much is that? Is Carson wanting to throw the ball and not wanting to stick with the game plan and not wanting to do the things that the coach wants to do? Because Carson doesn't like the coach, and Carson wants to make Doug angry. And this is beyond Troubling for your quarterback. Could be doing these kind of things. Maybe just changing place for no other reason. Then he doesn't want to do it. I remember watching that game specifically thinking it seems like Carson Wentz is changing a lot of plays. It seems like he's audible ng out of a lot of stuff because I remember that case specifically, we yelled about. Why is Doug not running the ball? It's raining. It's windy. Well, this reporting makes it um Seemed like it makes a lot more sense. Now, when you look at how many plays Carson Wentz was checking out of throughout the course of the season, and I went back. To after that game and listen to some sound from Carson once and you know, we've talked about the coach ability and whether he is a guy who will receive instruction and whether he is the kind of quarterback who will respond. Coaching. It was obvious that point that something needs to change. The offense wasn't going anywhere. The offense wasn't functioning at a high level. And when Carson was asked, asked whether he was going to change here was his response. Yeah. I mean, I'm frustrated. I think everyone in this locker rooms frustrated, you know you don't go out there. Play 60 minutes to lose. You know, that's not in back your mind. You know you don't wanna fight, scratch, claw do everything you can find a way to win these ballgames and It's obviously not happening the last couple weeks and so, um, a Zafar is confidence and all that for me, you know is what it is on the same player. You know, I'm gonna go cut it loose. I'm gonna be the same guy on give give Give it my all you know every every single game every single play and hopefully look up and see that we're winning a lot more of these games. But right now, we're not so we gotta look The card at ourselves in the mirror. He says it right there. You know all the stuff they did, Jeffrey claim reported. Carson says it right there when it's obvious that something needs to change. Carson says I'm not gonna do anything different. I'm gonna do what I do here is more from Carson when asked about whether he could be the same after all the injuries. Yeah. I mean, I think so. I mean football's football, You know, there's there's injuries that happened and You can't control their out of your control last year that I mean, you wanna bring up the concussion? That sucks. You know, being hit in the back of the head like that. That unfortunate part of the game and that stuff happened so I'm not gonna change. I'm gonna give it my all And, you know, I'm gonna keep learning as as I'm going and learning, you know, how did um, keep being a better player? Don't get me wrong, but as far as aggressiveness and being confident all those things that that's not gonna change And when you Seal these reports. He's not coachable. And then he doesn't respond. You know, he doesn't want to listen to Doug. He doesn't want to listen to certain people, and then you hear him impress conference. Say, Yeah, I'm not going to change. I'm going to do the same thing I always do. There It is, right there. All this stuff that's been reported is stuff that he was saying in the press conferences. That he is not going to change. He doesn't care what the coaches say He.
Will Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers retire after NFL playoffs?
"Watching Philip Rivers yesterday, Ray Should Frank Reich be interested? I think you'd be interested anyway. You know if, um if rivers really is and it sounds like and he's sort of been giving off this, you sort of been giving off this vibe much of the year that You know, it's I'm no one coming to the end, and he thought he knew it was time to get away from the Chargers, and you wanted to take one last shot with another team to get over the hump. And he did, and he got to the playoffs and he got down to the last throw. But It's like every Philip Rivers game I've ever seen. Wasn't it? A lot of them there, Right? Maybe or s O. He's down by a couple points going for that last drive. And more often than not doesn't make it. Yeah, it seems that that does seem to be the pattern there. Um, but I kinda got the feeling Um, in fact, even kind of seeing his postgame remarks and just watching him talking about the guys on the other team at the end of the game. You can you just kind of get the feeling you're saying good bye. I mean, you just Was like I kind of gave us a try. You know, I came to a good team. We had a chance had a good season. But you know what? You know, it's timeto probably step away. I just kind of got that vibe from him. And if that's the case Then you know Frank Reich is in the market for a quarterback. And if the fact that you know Ian's reporting that that's what that would if Carson Wentz is leaving Philadelphia, that's where you wanna go. Well, sure enough. I mean, that's the logical place. Everybody's been saying that it makes perfect sense. It's a good team. I mean, they're not there right there. I mean, their defense is really good. They have a good running back. Um, I mean, that's probably a good city for him, too. Yeah, you know, it's it's not a high, intense media city, which I think would benefit him. Yeah, I think In many ways, Indianapolis would probably feel like You know, Bismarck, you know, I mean, there's there's There's there is. It's not it. Philadelphians, Indiana It's one step away from North Dakota. Yeah, I mean it Z for a guy who clearly is very Dakota Ondas in a small town guy. No, just, you know, let's face it. Philadelphia. Really? If you're an athlete in Philadelphia, especially for the quarterback in Philadelphia, you're living a fish bowl existence. 24 7, and I don't know that he was never all that comfortable with that. I think Indiana And Indianapolis would probably be more comfortable fit in to be going to the coach that he knows that has a relationship and he's enjoyed tremendous success with so I mean, in almost every way you could possibly dice this thing. I mean, it seems to make perfect sense to me. Doesn't mean it's going to happen. But if it if he's going to move I mean to me, that's 98% the move. That makes sense.
Fresh update on "wentz" discussed on WIP Programming
"Once needs a fresh start. Now, if it's a fresh start in a needle uniforms, then let it be with a with a new head coach under a new system. On and in a new Ah, you know, Offensive coordinator I buddy Neal up in North Jersey Joins us ideal. Where am I going wrong here? Where you going? Wrong? Ricky and miles. You could never do wrong. So don't even put that out there. Um, thanks. As always, for taking my call. Great to speak with you. Uh, So, um I am going to say this about Carson. Once I'm going to move on. Carson Wentz is behaving like a spoiled, petulant child who is not getting his way and needs his baba to get through the day. And I think, if you and that report by Jeff McClain Really, If you didn't think before that he wasn't acting like a petulant, spoiled child. You realize it now remember to Joe stands on the quitter took a lot of heat in Philadelphia when he wrote that article a year or two ago. Because people thought that they would you know, he was basically wrong about went and he turned out to be president. He was right, you know, and McClane sort of give you give you the knockout blow. About Carson went on. The fact of the matter is that if Howie Roseman Looking at his giants Carson Wentz picture in his office, as was told to us and he stares at him and he you know, and he worships at his altar. It sure to the batteries. How he is that he may they may worship at the altar of Wen's, but Jeffrey Lori and how he rose and worship at the altar of their own narcissism because their narcissism and their stubbornness And not letting go of the fact that this guy is not our quarterback going forward is what's going to hold this franchise back. My next point on the coach is this I think Brian table is the guy that we need to go after. I think he is the absolute perfect fit. He's worried he turned Josh down to a top five quarterback. He developed him in such a way then I'm out of the way went developed in 2017. He's a big guy with it with an arm that whose mobile I think he would come. Now. Here's the difference that the Bills have a GM and Brandon Bean that traded a lot of picks. Get Stefan digs and get him a number one receiver and we're going to trust Howie Roseman. Who gave us JJ. I think Whiteside over DK met tap and Terry Mick Warren over JJ Ortega Whiteside and we're gonna trust the guy who put us in this mess to get us out of this mess. That the receiver position the cornerback position and almost every other position So we're handy Captain away by having Howie Roseman making these pics What do you think so far? Well, alright table if if if your motive for hiring day able Is to fix Carson wins. No, Miss Jalen hurts a top. Okay? Okay. You didn't mention Jalen hurts. I don't know. Well, I think me calling once a petulant, spoiled child kind of gave it away. But I don't want him to be the story, but no, I get it, but But have you read between the lines? Especially in the Meconium article. It seems like they're hell bent on fixing ones and that And as I said, before, that, and of itself is the problem, And here's the thing they don't understand. If you're probably two things, one of you publicly putting it out there that the Eagles are on Lee going to consider candidates that want went as the starter. You probably got 80% of all the good candidates were not even want to interview for the job, because if they know they have to have a quarterback If not of their own choosing. Why would you then one of 90? There's only 32 with his job, and I know Pete, you know, but in that case, I wouldn't want the job. The second thing is this. If you have now devalued the asset if you want to get if you're convinced, I think this is a smoke screen person. If they are worshiping at the altar of Carson Wentz, right, and they're and they're propping him up. They're probably doing it to bait a team to take that contract off the books like the cult, the Broncos of the Patriots. But then you have the Jeff McClain article saying is the poking our petulant, spoiled child Who needs is Bob how to get to the day. Why would anything want to trade for a person with that kind of a fragile ego? So no matter what way the Eagles go in this, they're making themselves look worse. With every action that they do. Now, let me ask you a question. Sure you watch the games up close. I trust your judgment. Okay, Well, I appreciate that. Thank you. Are you are you convinced Are you convinced after watching everything we saw up until the beginning of the fourth quarter of the Washington game? Are you convinced that Jalen hurts is your quarterback can be your quarterback going forward? I think Jalen hurts can be the quarterback going forward. Is that a slam dunk? No, but I think I think there was a chance that he could be a good quarterback. I think, which is not a Lincoln Riley higher would have been interesting to you because you know who knows, but Channeling her. It's better than Lincoln Riley. Of course, right, But, yeah, I think I would rather build around jail and hurt and see what I have with him. Then build around Carson went. I mean, there's rumors. I don't know if you heard about, you know to Shawn wants and watch out of Houston. Yeah. And you know what? The Eagles give up the number six. Pick and trade Wentz and add assets. Don't you wouldn't want one. No, I know. Of course, of course. But that, but the rumors that they would like the Eagles would give up a ton of at this just to get him, But it's like, what do you think you're going? You think they're going to take a guy? It is Shawn Watson. You must without like, five or six draft picks. And like two top players, they're not gonna get rid of them. Have no receivers for this. Shawn Watson here. They don't have an offensive line to protect. Shorn Watson, which is what he hasn't used it anyway, right? She wants it has a full no trade clause and do Shawn wants and what he needs to have his head examined if he if he would want to accept the trade to the Philadelphia Eagles. Well, that's what I'm saying. People were throwing it out there, you know, And I think here's the thing If you're picking six I mean, obviously, Trevor Laurence is off the board the kid, you know, I think Wilson will be off the board yet. None of the other guy whose name is slipping my mind there the second quarterback? Yeah. I think he's gonna be off the board. So unless I mean, so unless you wanna go division to root again. Like we've seen before and go after some division Sue quarterback. I wouldn't do it. I think you both around Jalen hurts. I think you're still. Plus, I think the NFL now is you know Ricky is becoming quarterbacks have to be dual threat. Now you have to have that ability to run..

I mean, it's only my second year, so we all kind of got to do a better job of just community over communicating. Talking to each other out there and make sure make sure we're all on the same page with mills out for Sunday.

Washington gets 2nd chance to win NFC East at Philadelphia
"Right sunday night. Football al chris. Michelle in the world will watch the. Nfc east get decided the washington football team win and they're the nfc east champs that's into simple as that for washington. They are against the philadelphia eagles team. Which is the only team. That is not in contention for the nfc east crown entering week. Seventeen which tells you everything you need to know about. How their season. When greg i feel like a lot of my confidence in washington is rooted in if alex smith is playing. Because everything else about this team. I like in this match. Yeah i like that. They have antonio gibson back is huge. Smith did practice on thursday so it's trending towards him play now. He wasn't playing as well. His last few starts that we saw him out there even before the calf injury as he was when he first came into the lineup. But at least it makes it a great story on sunday night like this is the game they had to show because it was the one that made sense that there won't be any teams eliminated and he see alex smith finesse. Nbc on sunday night. Finish off the comeback of the year award would be pretty awesome against this eagles team which is just playing out the string in his so bang i know they have jalen hurts but the rest of the team especially on defense is so banged up right. Now it's i'm with you greg. It's it's like. We were ready to give alex smith comeback player of the year. If he came in and did a kneel down. I mean just to even come back and be in uniform on the fact that the coaching staff so clearly said all along this the guy we trust. I think that he can do a lot priests snap that. You're not going to get from the other quarterbacks on that roster this needs to be about washington's rookie class though to chase young antonio gibson these guys are key to this team and it's incredibly. These teams met in back in week one. When i thought philly could be a super bowl team their quarterback of the future carson wentz is nowhere to be seen right now and philadelphia and washington washington. Chance to win the nfc. East i'm sorry. I didn't see that coming to check me at the door if you
Cowboys vs. Eagles score: Michael Gallup leads aerial assault against Philadelphia, keeps Dallas alive in NFC East
"Dallas cowboys ended the philadelphia eagles season on sunday afternoon at. At and t. stadium. That's right the eagles now with only four wins with only one game left even though the cowboys will need some help from them. The philadelphia eagles are officially done. And we'll have to look forward to two thousand and twenty one when their quarterback will be jalen hurts full-time or carson wentz. Who knows there's a lot to get into as it as it relates to this game again so many things happen. Let's start the first highlight to show you here. If you're watching on youtube sean. Jackson did indeed have an eighty one yard touchdown. Jalen hurts finds him about six minutes left in the first quarter. Just absolutely rose. We had absolutely chance. This is the type of thing that we've grown accustomed to seeing. Unfortunately from sean jackson he has gotten the better end of the cowboys for a long time over a decade. Schon jackson has been shown the cowboys now with multiple quarterbacks in multiple home stadiums schon jackson has had success. I'll give it to him that. At least this time. He remembered to score the touchdown and not fumbled the ball right in front of the goal line. Let's keep on. Let's get to some more happy. Highlights and michael gallup who was in contention for our star of the game. His first touchdown was a beauty as the second quarter. Began getting the cowboys. Back in the mix narrowing the margin. Fourteen to ten michael gallup like i said look at that elite camera work from fox. We'll talk about that in a second. Michael gallup quickly got to work. He had a big gain a little bit after a few minutes later. Look at this starting his own thirty five running down the sideline a bunch of eagles chasing him. Michael gallup doing all the work doing all the work doing all the work and then speaking of work you know the cowboys as we all know they like to feed ezekiel elliott. This was later on that possession the cowboys trailing fourteen. Ten and ezekiel elliott. There's no video of this so apologies. If you're watching on youtube you can see our freeze frame image. A looked like ezekiel elliott. Who had a really great game really looked like he scored on. This place is a bad angles from the tv copy but to me to my naked eye it looks like zeke. Elliott is over the line. I think that that's a touchdown. Zeke mike mccarthy did not challenge this. The cowboys wound up settling for fuel narrowing the margin fourteen to thirteen. They would ultimately start their climb back and they're ferocious. Climb back in fact. Let's get to that. Climb another michael gallup touched down here at the end of the first half andy dalton not even messing around just looking right for him and michael gallup again just a superstar a true wide receiver. One cowbys have three of them. Dalton schultz you can see very happy for his teammate. This was a phenomenal performance by michael gap
"wentz" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"Channel. Eighty and on your smart speaker reach me. Eighty eight say. Espn eight eight seven nine. Three seven six. I mean taylor. Horton tucker. He got some wiggling his game for a wide body. And i know look if everyone's atmos the preseason you guys could drop thirty three points but you know it when you see it. Like that kai is taylor. Tux good basketball player. And he's only twenty barely played last year by the way mcmenamin had it. He played taylor. Horton tucker played the is it. Eighty one minutes his rookie season at age. Nineteen last season right plus minus of plus thirty six. You know yeah well. That's just a data point but another data point is. He dropped thirty three points last night. I'm just saying eight. A lot of data points the ones we got look pretty good. Don't they owe if he's an actual baller. Ooh the lakers are going to be impossible. This year max. Kellerman show presented by progressive insurance guests. Join me on the shell. Pennzoil performance line eagles. Jalen hurts wins. His first start hurts. Gave the eagles offense to joe coach. Doug peterson was looking for twenty. Four twenty one victory over the saints hurts. Went seventeen for thirty one hundred. Sixty seven yards and a touchdown and ran eighteen times for one hundred six yards. Is it a wrap for wentz. Hell yeah jeffrey. Lurie deserves what he gets. He sticks with wentz. His team stinks is it. Clearly empowering wentz and the coach is shook. Doug peterson scared. He couldn't even say after the game he couldn't bring his convicts his mouth to praise. Jalen hurts. well it's really more of a team thing because he's afraid of carson. Wentz was what i heard a couple of years ago. That's the reporting. That was coming out of and what i was hearing out of philadelphia. The team is scared. Everyone but zach ertz. Don't get on the wrong side of carson wentz. What does whatsoever to have that kind of power and he thinks he knows at all carson. Wentz had most of one great season. He didn't even get all the way there and as backup went on the super bowl. Run running one super bowl. Mvp and the next year they were five and six when he got hurt again. Never mind the ability is availability and he doesn't seem to be available very much when he is available. You wish wasn't available. Nick foles five and sixteen. They caught fire made the playoffs. Beat the bears. Beat the saints on a perfect. Throw by nick foles by the way. Alshon jeffery dropped the ball. Nick foles to a perfectly almost got him back to the nfc championship game and then the following year carson wentz was praised for stinking at the end of the year but he was beating bad. Nfc teams nfc east teams barely by the skin of his teeth and getting lucky that they were recovering the ball when he was fumbling and stuff on third down in the fourth quarter consistently lucky people areas in the mvp. What mvp stunk. And i told you that wrong. But i acknowledge so many injuries. A lot of guys dropping balls. He probably is an average. Probably like on the fifteenth best quarterback in football. I was giving in the benefit of the doubt coming back catastrophic injury. He was not moving the same but considering the circumstances i gave him the benefit of probably about an average quarterback and maybe he was but he started reading his press clippings. He didn't really adjust anything. He was losing games making stupid mistakes trying to play hero ball which foolish making one great. Throw a game two or three okay. Once every other play he was awful making bad decisions poor execution and after the game getting up the postgame game presser. This is just the way we do things around here. I'll probably always have to walk that line and not know what side of the line on. But that's just the way we do things around you. Sit your you know what down sat down and what happened. Jalen hurts comes in the game. They look good don't they. And then they start. Jalen hurts now if the offensive line was the problem for carson wentz. Don't you think a rookie. Second round. Pick making his first start of his. Nfl career against that behind that offensive line against the best defense in the nfl. At least recently don't you think he'd be sacked once right one sack at all. He didn't try to do too much. You did what are you supposed to do. And the one. Why do you think the team responds with carson. Wentz comes of the game. I've never questioned carson wentz's toughness talent. But he's he needs he needs humility. he doesn't have it obviously. He needs to work on everything like they need to rebuild carson wentz and. I hope they do it with him. Starting the eagles do that. I'm a giants fan. I hope they give carson wentz all the rope in the world to hang the organization with. He's terrible the understand. He's the worst statistical starter in the nfl under center as the worst starting quarterback statistically in the nfl this year. So that's the offensive line's fault. The offensive line was eleventh in win. Rate pass blocking the offensive line. Give up zero sacks to jalen hurts. Jalen hurts threw zero interceptions they. They recovered the ball. Once he was held up hurts was held up when they should have been given the ball to the running back and chewing clock he was held up and they punched the ball out. One time only turnover so much better than wentz. And i don't even know if hurts is the real deal but they're going to have to find out by the way we have so many data points now it's getting embarrassing so falls takes over the team that won the super bowl falls takes over a five and sixteen and from sitting carson. Wentz falls coming in to catch fire. Make the playoffs beat the bears on the road. Almost beat the saints on the road the following season carson wentz gets to play the whole thing right and they catch fire at the end against the worst division in football. They just got healthy against the cowboys. Washington and the giants. They were barely beating them in lucky to do so they were covering fumbles. That carson wentz's fumbles. They're getting lucky to fall on the ball barely. Winning carson wentz study was the cat's pajamas. Right what happened. He gets hurt. Josh mccown comes into the playoffs and does just as well as well. How do you just as just as well because they lost to seattle with mccown is quarterback a forty year old making his first playoff appearance on a bomb leg. The score against seattle in that playoff game was the exact same score that the eagles put up against seattle week. Twelve with carson wentz under center. How many data points you need before you say. Yuck the guys know he's untradable. He's no good by the way. Did you see doug peterson at the post game. Presser do we have that peterson. Sound shook coach was shook. He couldn't even bring his himself to say yeah that finally he's announced jalen hurts his star but he didn't want to harp on her on hurts. Because what if. Jeffrey lurie finds out. He's not praising carson wentz. Listen to coach. Doug peterson after the game. You know i'm I'm gonna enjoy this one. I'm gonna go home and relaxing and be with my family tonight and enjoy this win and and get ready for the week Just answer the question coach. Or or jeffrey lurie is impossible for him to answer the question.
Eagles drop struggling Carson Wentz for Hurts in middle of $128m contract
"The jalen hurts thing. Yeah we let's just every sports shows gonna do it so we should probably do it. The the wentz conversation. Everybody's everybody's saying. What do they do should they. It seems like they literally can't do anything i don't think they can. Everyone's like turn them to the colts. It's frank rights problem. He'll do good with. I'm like i don't i don't know one's eaten his contract right. I know there's some creative ways to get around it. But that's just too much damn. It's easier for the team to take him. So i did some research on this. Basically if he gets traded by a certain day you he's only owed is twenty twenty one and twenty twenty two salaries and it's basically a two year forty seven million dollar deal secure the colts and franks. I love this guy. Go look at his stats last couple of years like i. I can fix this guy whenever quarterback anyway. Maybe do it. The problem is no matter when they do it. The eagles just get crushed. You know they they could save right. Twenty five point. Four million in salaries in twenty twenty one and then fifty million in twenty twenty two for guaranteed. But they're just in the whole for thirty million minimum if they trade them no matter how they've besides it with the weirdest thing is. They gave him that extension before his rookie. Dale even played out which. I never understand when teams do that. Football right yeah again. He's i mean he hasn't survived last three three out of four december. Yeah he had major need knee injury. You also have the franchise tag which you can always use. If you don't agree to affirm. I the whole concept of locking him down way before you need to when you're not even positive what he is. It is weird so anyway. I don't see how they trade them if anything you would you try to build. Jalen hurts his value up to try to trade him right. Yes exactly. I think that's the way to do it but So then how long does he have to play to build his value though like through the rest of the year. At least right well there. Somehow they're not at of the an ac-. I know they're screwed. I they might be screwed worse than the cowboys which is exciting.

Philadelphia Eagles to start Jalen Hurts at QB over Carson Wentz
"Jalen hurts time in philadelphia and jalen hurts will make his first. Nfl start sunday against the new orleans. Saints so welcome to the league young man you go against a really good carson wentz back up her and while this seems crazy to all of us it's also kind of crazy to doug peterson i don't take carson wentz out of it. I didn't expect us to be in this situation back in april. So let's just start there. Listen everybody around jalen or around. Carson has to has to elevate their game. We can't do this. They can't do this alone right. They can't they can't do that. It's impossible to to attack. You know an opponent would just one guy so But i fully expect our guys. I play hard and do everything they can to try and win along perfectly clear here what's become crazy about. This is not the way that all of this went down because it became very obvious that a quarterback change needed to be made. But just the fact that here we are in twenty twenty and we'll probably see tastes hill against jalen hurts in this game i key. Let's start with you. What do you think of the eagles finally making this new well. It's about time. I think we you know a lot of the media around and been talking about this for weeks on of weeks but as they say better late than never and i think it's jalen hurts his job to lose and i'm talking about long term. I think when you look at the situation. And i've been around a lot of quarterbacks in my time in organizations and when you say here's a guy who has a opportunity on a two to three games sample that he could take this job and make it his own. He cannot be coursing wins. What i mean by that is he cannot play like carson with. He has to play like the jalen hurts. That was drafted in top fifteen picks in the national football league. That guy that we saw at oklahoma the guy that we saw a brief time in alabama. If he does that and he can ignite this offense. Then it's his job to lose. Come next off season. I think the philadelphia eagles are looking for the same things. I think when you look at it they say okay. If jalen does what he's supposed to do we go into the offseason with a quarterback battle. Ota's as many camp training camp. Give the up to carson wentz. Because that's what we're gonna do because you follow the money and then you put carson carson wentz carson jalen carson with a short lease. You say you got two to three games to prove yourself and if not we go snatch twenty one is hurts. His team were done which it. That is the way you do it.

"wentz" Discussed on NFL Live
"All right so we also wanted to point this out with the second week of december or carson. Wentz has not been good looking look at december tenth twenty seventeen torn acl ins his season. Then december nine th two thousand eighteen the back injury in this season then and then december eighth twenty twenty pinched for jalen hurts so Secondly december twenty twenty one. We'll see what it looks like for carson wentz. One of the things that i think was really important there that adam brought up. Dan is that jeffrey loria. The owner signing off on making this change jalen hurts not that complicated decision for doug. Peterson mean the play kind of brought to that. Listen you guys know. I'm going to be passionate about this right. So the reason they are in this situation that the eagles organization everybody has their hand in it. Everybody the general manager the head coach the front office for putting the roster out there and that includes the quarterback. I mean his play opened up the door for this decision for this decision to be easy. You play sports long enough. You're more than likely going to get benched right. I've been benched before a lot of us to a played for a long time. It happens number one. You have to look in the mirror and figure out. Why did it happen like what. What did i do to allow this to happen. You have to take accountability of it. You have to take ownership of it and then you better start quickly focusing on what to do next he's gotta earn carson. Wentz has earned the trust of his teammates. Back he does. He's got to earn the trust of the head coach. Back whether it's this head coach or somebody that might be next year. He's gotta earn the trust of the general manager back and it's got to be vice versa as well and so there needs to be ownership by everybody in that organization and i'll be franken has to start with carson wentz four. This situation this. I know is breaking news and we excited this is. This is normal football procedure dude. You're not helping us win. Like y'all know me is very simple for me. You one hundred million out of quarterback is going to get every possible. Excuse exhausted to not remove him from the game. Yeah of course wince. Just got rid of all those excuses and look. We can powell on about his play and we do that. We analyze we critique critical at times with quarterback. So i plan to speed but to me. This is such a simple move. This didn't take the act of congress. Turn on the field of milan. Four to five weeks and look at the way carson wentz has been playing hurts not in a great position either but carson wentz damn so wasn't in one and he wasn't showing any progression and i think what happened between. Doug peterson this front office. Jeff lurie is. They were waiting to see if a corner would be turned. Played hoping hoping and now you gotta go with jalen hurts all right so jalen hurts me. Hey welcome to the nfl man. You're getting your first. Nfl start against the saints. Tough of a matchup is so. I was in favor of this move. I thought jalen hurts. Sparks the elephants. I thought his mobility is really key especially with that decimated offensive line. But he is walking into the lion's den and not the detroit lions because that would be. He is playing in the nfl right now. I'll look at this. This is since week nine don't touch carson wentz would get his kicks against the saints and there's a good chance jalen hurts toes to let's be real and it's no fault of his own but i asked this. I asked this the fans and of the eagles organization. Don't let this be his only start because it's not a fair legitimate test of his abilities and allow them to develop as a quarterback. It's going to be as i start but it shouldn't be his last one. Let's get back to the game from last night and you know. Why is the bills passing so hard to defend. I know we're getting a game. I will but rainn wilson. He's like the weird awkward nerd goofy. I might be able to relate. Okay josh out of his mind okay. Let's let's let's. let's call a spade. has spayed. josh. Allen was absolutely rental he was amazing. He was cerebral. He was poised. He was accurate. He was patient which is a thing he hasn't been in the past but they also want because of the team. That's been assemble around josh allen. I have praised. Gm brandon bean to know when this off season and you really saw it on display against san francisco because this combination of receivers is so hard to defend. If you play man the route running kings digs is going to kill you and put you in a blender if you play zone the short king cole beasley find the soft spots in that defense as he did in the first half over and over and over there are no right answers now. They're not unstoppable. Think a team that would maybe has a better chance of setting the edge against alan. Then san francisco did would put up a better fight. Boy that offense is terrifying. No pam beesley yourself but is somebody said that into his era producer. Mark is when dan visited him. I'll be professional what i love about. Where the offense is right now and it kinda was really on display last night was they give him a lot of power. At the line of scrimmage like those pieces that they move around they'll motion guys back out of the backfield together information the tied in to gather information. That's empowering for quarterback like when the quarterback can stand at. The line of scrimmage. Like josh allen does and he goes. Oh no defense. You're in then you feel like incredibly confident. There's he feels like superman like there's not a throw that he can't make because he knows exactly what coverage you're in where the ball needs to go to and brian cabell does a great job of giving him that affiliates. It's very similar patrick. Mahomes gets in kansas city. You know you expedite the thought process. And that's what they do a lot now. How do you stop it because you bring up a great point about like the man versus zone and everyone's initial thought is you gotta have a guy that can cover stefan digs. I don't think that's the answer. It's almost like the new england thing from back in the day. Like you gotta put your number two corner on stefan galilee. Man you gotta man you gotta put your to corner on digs with a little bit of help and you've got to believe that you're one corner your number one can absolutely lockdown co beasley. If you can do that you can slow this offense down. There's just not a lot of teams who can all right so we all agree that the best team in the afc is the chiefs. Obviously so the bills the second best team in the division who based on last night yes but it say what your chest this office could be. Oh stop and there's a caveat. Obviously i mean look. Last night was not indicative to what they'll face going forward when you have. I'd love the fact they're all talking about. Man has all but you could play the greatest man and the greatest football history. If it ain't no persona quarterback he go in this league especially with the type of talent josh allen s so that's the ultimate equalizer when you plan against the buffalo bills and you try to you know ask yourself who are those teams that can generate that type of pass rush and then you gotta go to well. He's athletic to can improvise and make plays off script. So yeah i would. I would feel comfortable saying bills. The second best team is tough. I might say that. I like i said it gave me mean i did a little shoulder shimmy so i think she agrees no-one. Nfl live right now. Arizona cardinals have activated wide receiver. Larry fitzgerald from the reserve covid nineteen list on sunday. They're taking on the giants. Marcus is saying that's huge.

"wentz" Discussed on First Take
"Been then. It stands to reason based on what you're seeing along with the return of dan. You don't be an imminent that this team is going to continue to ascend and we can't rivera about the dallas cowboys. Kids about the eagles. You might be able to say that about the watch. The redskins really not sure as of yet so we gotta take that into consideration. I'll leave this. The you in. Mali has daja giants fan. If gioja the way he looked only going by what we've seen thus far okay because i don obviously the future will tell us more based on what we have seen this fall. Y'all if joe judge was the coach of the los angeles chargers they'd be super bowl. Contenders i about so super bowl. Contenders stephen a. I think that they would forty five. Nothing it wouldn't have been such a mismatch ward. Sharp predicted bellichik versus anthony. Lynn a the worst coaching mismatch. You could probably get right now right. And i'll say this since you point that out. The bill belichick. Coaching tree has always been a disaster in the nfl. But how you like. Brian flores down to miami how you like in joe judge in new york promising returns on young coaches right now off the ballot chick tree. No question making lemonade really doing something special. And i just want to give a quick shout to leonard williams and that defense. They're forcing more three and out than they're allowing scoring drives and they were super impressive yesterday as well and they've been underrated so far this season on the on this win streak of all right guys. Let's keep it going here. I actually want to stay in the division but focused on philly. The truth hurts more carson. Wentz getting benched for jalen hurts. And the loss of the packers doug peterson noncommittal on who will start next week against the saints max or winters problems on himself or is it the team as well at this point it's carson wentz by the way where's where lobski it's carson wentz member when. Dan held up that l. Guys he took the l. On you the media you actually do have influence i believe when media enablers for carson wentz. Start admitting okay. He's bad that actually gives coached the covering needs to sit him down. I'm not kidding. I think that's correlated. I don't think that's independent. Coach finally sat down and by the way talk about a day late and a dollar short. I told you a month ago. Sit whence hold him accountable. I told you a year ago. The stuff i'm hearing coming out of philly about changing plays and really running his offense not peterson's i told you last year he was regressing. Hey everyone don't need them and tell them how gradients so he doesn't have to work on anything he's broken beyond repair. I do not believe in carson wentz's future guys how we roseman had questions to. It's not that well rose been drafted a quarterback and now that affects wentz's confidence roseman drafted a quarterback because he knew we hitched our start. This guy's wagging. I don't know we need to do something. Spent a second round pick. Member didn't trade for deondraye hopkins. Didn't wanna give up the second round pick didn't use it to draft trade up and get the best receiver possible didn't draft someone on the defense traffic wentz's replacement now. I told you bench wentz a month ago so that you can send a message to the team. I compared it to mcnabb's benching stephen a. Which i know you remember in philly and he took them that season to his fifth. Nfc championship game. He was held accountable. Wentz wasn't whence was told. Grady was whence was coming out talking about. That's just the way we do things around here. You want to blame that on the coach or the gm or anyone else. That's ridiculous. even you know what i'm saying. Now forget about pension wentz to fix him. Forget about benching wench to try to win the next game. I don't know if i was ready or not. You have to sit whence necessarily for the rest of this season to see whether jalen hurts can be your quarterback going forward or whether you have to use your top five or six. Pick to draft a quarterback because carson wentz is over finished. It's over too much to fix at this point. I warned everybody. Well first of all. I disagree with you. I don't think he's finished. I don't think it's over in terms of his career. He's twenty seven twenty eight years of age. He's got a whole career ahead of him. And i don't think he's finished. I think this has been an horrific season. I definitely think he has some blame where i disagree with. You is where you can find it to him. As opposed to the eagles organizations you bring up the fact that okay. They drafted his backup. Well maybe if you went out and you got the decay metcalfe's when you could have or aj brown or somebody of that ilk. Excuse me and you gave him a multitude of weapons. Maybe he would look a little bit better. Maybe if you wasn't savaged with injuries last year maybe he would have looked a little better. Maybe just maybe if. You didn't go to jeffrey lori. And sit up there and say give this guy all of this money alright. Taking into account all the things you have mentioned about him changing plays not listening to the coach's rex ryan said this morning on this pension for thinking he knows everything. These are all things that were known about cost and went before the eagles organization elected to give him that long term contract with such exorbitant dollars when we praised that prescott. What is it that we pray. Why is it that. We got on jerry jones and stephen jones for not reaching a long-term accord with this guy. It wasn't just because he passed for forty nine hundred plus yards last year thirty touchdowns just eleven interceptions and he continued to show it upside taking them to the playoffs to towns in his first three or four years. It's because carson. I'm sorry debt. Prescott proved he was trustworthy. He proved he was the leader. He proved he could galvanize the troops in the locker room. There were no debate going on within the locker room as to whether it should be costing windsor nick foles. There were no debates about. Oh my goodness who's light to more whatever dak prescott was that dude. He was that dude on the field. He was that dude in the locker room. He was a leader. He was trustworthy. And so there were questions about that. What carson wentz you knew it. If harry roseman you knew it if you were doug peterson but you went upstairs. Jeffrey loria because i as somebody that worked in philadelphia for seventeen years at somebody that was a columnist covering the philadelphia eagles. Who have spoken to. Jeffrey loria on several occasions. One of the things that i know. He's the boss. he's the final. Say he's a true leader but he is somebody that understands delegating responsibility to those below him. He has to let them do their job. And there's no way he would have given carson wentz that money if it wasn't signed off by the guys below him advising him to do that online so that's culpability and responsibility that cannot be ignored. You can't look at and went and him regressing to the way to the level and just point the finger at him when there's coaches around him have a responsibility void. Absolving i'm not absolving peterson or roseman. I've been very clear. They all gotta go peterson. By the way got the fourth best. Run ole line in the league and he won't give the ball to sanders. Scott you got to study and.
Wentz benched for Hurts; no verdict on starter
"Green bay now carson wentz was benched for jalen hurts midway through the third quarter. Yesterday hurts play. The eagles back into the game hurts so good with jalen in there. I've been waiting to say probably should have waited a little longer brandon. Getting benched for hurts blank you had to answer is much needed Put myself in his shoes. A lot of people don't understand how toxic of in oven environment it is when you're losing and you walk into. Nfl locker room organization. This is a billion dollar industry with multimillion dollar athletes. They accountability the type of pressure. That you face every single day to perform at a high level is out of this world so for carson wentz. This is the best thing that could potentially happen when you don't have to deal with that anymore walking into the organization and basing your teammates base in the media that's hard when you're playing this bet your teams playing this bed. There's nowhere to high so when you get bitch. Now it's time for him to take a deep breath and focus on the future now. I think i'm one that will stay on the table to think that you know just a little bit of time. Time could potentially fix these issues with the right type of pieces around him. I don't think it's time to move on. I just think they need to regroup. So i think it's intriguing for frank right frank reich. The head coach of indianapolis colts is the offensive coordinator in philadelphia. And twenty seventeen the only year carson wentz has looked like a franchise quarterback as soon as frank reich left seemingly soda carson winston ability to lead a team deep into the playoffs or einstein. He got hurt that year but the double digit wins. The colts got a thirty eight year. Old bolo tie wearing interception machine at quarterback who can't wait to get down to i think it's florida's offense coordinated bryce school next year. They know they're going to be in the markets on quarterback they also know their too good to draft one. And they don't trust your koby perset. Free agent marketplace isn't going to be right with starting quarterbacks and philly is going to have to trade carson if they want to move on from they can't cut it so i think frank reich is watching carson wentz struggles and saying to chris ballard and folks in indy guys. I think we can get him for a conditional seventh round pick. They just want to get off the contractor replays. Well so i think frank reich is watching this and saying you know what that could be starting quarterback next year.

Philip Rivers and Kirk Cousins' Season Outlook
"This has become a big part of the season. The the quarterback lawyers out there so it became a topic that i talked about on monday because of the romo defending brady and basically criticizing arians but it seems like a lot of the athletes. Hate the Law offices of romo and collins worth all of these guys that seem to protect the quarterback but then it was another level for the monday night. Game with wentz where people were so mad. Anytime brian greasy would be like well actually was a screen and they missed the block here and it was on again and it looks a lot of guys i used to work with. Espn like name is. They know they are. They got so mad about the. The defense of any of these. Quarterbacks is fair when it comes to the stuff you're at home your home just like the rest of us are watching these games. They give me a break of the tampa thing and then wentz. Yeah i mean. I don't think either quarterbacks in a good situation right now when you look at those two guys. But i also think there's some i mean to to absolve either. One of them of blame is crazy to me. Neither one of our plan well So that to me. It's kind of more a little bit more nuance there. I don't think either one of them are in the right system. That fits what they do right now and the other side of it as well. But that's where you find yourself. Your job is to execute with the situation. You find yourself in. i think carson's little carson's is is is a longer story About everything that's going on there with him to me. He looks like somebody who's kind of just completely lost his confidence you know. See what a guy it out in hoops curious around like in football. We talk about guys to start guiding the ball right. They don't they don't have any confidence or trust and you're really trying to guide the ball and then you end up with some really bad messes. I don't know if a shooter go through a slump. What what that looks like. But that's what it looks like with carson. There's nothing like a quarterback who's lost confidence it really. I think eventually like if you're a decent shooter not just going to not be able to shoot for year. Because you're bummed out. I mean paul george in the bubble so whatever But i don't know what the excuse was another playoff games. I think the biggest thing that you'll notice basketball is a guy who was a guy coming back from some kind of injury and he's good to go it's not like he doesn't trust his knee. And you played a lot of basketball. He's just stuff around the rim. he's inbetween decisions. Sometimes you just forget to drive usually remember used to drive past guys but eventually all that stuff goes away. I don't think there's anything as long lasting in basketball is there is is. The quarterback is completely lost. And then you'll see guys who lose so much confidence they start changing the way they've played like that's one of the crazy things about the cousin story. Is that cousins. Was somebody who took no chances to kind of make his way into the game. And then he had some decent statistical seasons and then he actually started. I think chuck in the ball a lot last year. Know what he actually came around. And then you know. He has dug game after they beat the saints. Which wasn't surprising to me. And then the beginning of this year. He was chuckling at all over the place and they were terrible for complete like changed who they became as a team with cook and yet cousins was great. Cousins will have these moments where he's like two completely different guys which is my biggest with ever putting him up in higher group with with some other people have them up there but cousins to me like in some areas. There's some similarities to rivers. And that i always felt like with rivers man if if if he hits that that hot stretch for him when he get. The postseason like flat goes agree. Example flack over sixteen seventeen games in any season his career. Like you're not. You're not going to buy that as a change of quarterback but he always had that ceiling for manufacturing it for three or four weeks. He's capable of doing that in off they go. I've always kinda put rivers in that category. That if he could get in the tournament and just had to have one of those hot streaks he could carry them and cousins is kind of like the the next version of that were I don't trust kirk over sixteen games but in a three or four game stretch. If you've got the good version kirk cousins like that's that's dangerous. He could actually do something. I always like rivers way more cousins. I wouldn't say this version of rivers but you know he's more accomplished definitely more -ccomplish but i'm just still saying that that rivers his hot stretches lasted longer than any of kirks hot stretches. But i've seen rivers put together three unbelievable games and then just added nowhere. You're like dude what what happened. Like just a clunker can happen so that that to me is where i find a little bit of the similarity there.
"wentz" Discussed on First Things First
"Philly eagles and seahawks and birds and other birds only one type heading south carson wentz again trying to prove a starter status again coming up short another interception adding to his league-leading totally was also six. Times is back backup. Jalen hurts saw just to blaze last night. We'll have much more on him in just a second but first eagles get the win. Here's carson winston after last night's loss to seattle. There's been a lot of talk and speculation. You possibly getting benched or something like that. I mean does that way on you at all. Do you think about that at all. And that occurred during the game. Any of that. Come up. i mean. I said that last week you know this is what you sign up for as a quarterback <hes> member. Since you're a kid you know you're prepared for for any of those nothing's ever guaranteed and so for me i. I don't think about that though. I just try and go out and be the best player. I can be in practice. Prepare my tail off. Compete my tail off and <hes>. You know hopefully we can get this thing turned around but <hes>. I think about those things. I might give it everything i got every time i step on the field. I think i said the eagles went. Obviously the seahawks won there and carson wentz with the barrage of questions about his plane time plane status plane brandon start with you did carson wentz play well enough to keep his starting job moving forward. Well i mean i hell. Mary was nice. i mean how. How often do we see that at all. He but outside of that. Mary no he. He didn't play well. The coaches the coach. Well defense didn't play well enough. This is one of those years. Nick where everybody needs to be on notice when you play like this and miss division everyone should be on notice and then you can go back to last couple years outside of their super bowl. Run it's always been a struggle for this organization. If i'm the owner. I am looking at everything. I'm looking at the general managers there's other gaps. There's other holes on this team is not just carson wentz. it's also the linebacking core and it's not that the linebacking core isn't playing. Well they're just not very good they don't have any debt so with that mind like you gotta talk about. Who's making those decisions. And you got to hold them accountable. So this entire organization. Mic should be on notice at listen. I think might garafolo is the one who reported this morning that he can no longer report. That doug peterson is totally save. Despite being just three years removed from actually winning a super bowl something carson wentz is not able to say. He did what that means for our rose. One of the front office will see. And you're right brandon. This is a team that has a multitude of issues but their biggest issue is this in twenty twenty the worst starting quarterback in football now. That's not a statement of opinion. That's just if according to the numbers we can show them. The worst fulltime starting quarterback in the nfl is carson wentz and the spat back that up one hundred percent. He's thirty fifth worse in everything. And there's only thirty two teams folks and he is a turnover machine he runs into sacks he doesn't make the big throws anymore. There's been one game all year long that he didn't turn the ball over and in that game. He fumbled twice. They just happened to recover them so it does feel however wildlife carson wentz might be the one with the most job security because of the contract. He's been signed to based on performance. You have a twenty eight a guy that's going to be twenty eight this month. He's in year five and he's playing the worst football of his career. That is more than a sign for his future. But do you think that's all of his fault nick. Because morning i wake up. And i make a little menu and i called my my kitchen. Where do my work hot take cafe and on today's menu. Here's what we had. You can make your choice. Everyone you can have bad coaching with a side of bad. Play design you can have bad decision. Making with a side of bad throws you could have bad wide receivers and bad protection. Those your options at the take cafe for me. I want went bad protection. I went with the six acts. We're not his fault. The league leading forty six x also. Not his fault he also had some throwaways there and i was watching the game last night neck and i was like oh the one when he was chased out of the pocket to avoid an intentional grounding. He threw it to the first down. Even though it came up short i was like. Oh that's a. That's a good play. That's a quarterback you can build around. I'm like what what is happening. I'm calling a throw to save even intentional grounding a good play and he could say like. I don't put it on the offensive line. Louis riddick mentioned it last night when they went to the super bowl best offensive line surprise surprise. Takeout carson wentz put. Nick foles doesn't matter to me. It starts with the offensive line. I know there's a lot of side dishes but it's an offensive line thing for me.
"wentz" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"By the way you before. I move on you andy. Reid said about patrick. Mahomes gimme a minute and a half and pretty good right there. We can roll. You know he's like i'm down. I'm down a score. But patrick mahomes patrick mahomes. I'm good. yeah and we all know it. We'd all rather have mahomes down six with a minute left. Then be the team up. Six eight eight say. Espn tell me. I'm wrong meantime on the other end of the spectrum. The eagles doug peterson head coach. I he's at. I mean i mean the headlines. You're seeing today. See i watch this stuff the headlines. You're seeing today or that corresponds bench and carson. Wentz would send the wrong message. Peterson said that went. Would remain the starting quarterback for monday's for monday night's game against the seahawks in spite of wentz's continued struggles. Twenty one of thirty five hundred thirty five yards to two interceptions but that makes him sound better new was including a pick six and sunday's loss to the browns. But here's the real question that i want you guys to hear the answer to. This tells me everything i need to know. 'cause i've heard lot over the last couple years and by the way i was a huge supporter in seventeen in two thousand seventeen now saying he and not. Tom brady is the mvp. At the moment he got hurt late in the season. Thirty the best player in football that year. He was great on the money downgrade on third down. Best in the league and now he's the worst in the league on third down but i started hearing things about jeffey laurean. How wentz as a direct line to the owner and how the team is scared of whence house teammates are now listen to doug peterson. Eagles head coach super bowl winning coach. Who didn't do it with. I mean he put them in a position by winning a lotta regular season games but it was nick. Foles took over before the end of the season and won every single playoff game including the super bowl where nick foles was super bowl. Mvp and the following season they were sub. Five hundred and dead in the water went. Foles took over the team. They caught fire. They made the playoffs and they went on the road and won a playoff game at soldier field against a bears team. A lot of people liked to get out of the nfc because their defense that year and he followed that up. Guide by going to new orleans where it's really hard to win. And if his receiver turns around full hit him in the chest probably wins that game two. That's title defense even if you don't you don't ultimately go back to back winning super bowl's almost no one has ever done that. But that's a valiant title defense. it's a valiant effort. That was all nick foles. Nick foles just ran. The offense peterson wanted to run. Does carson wes. Hey coach if you wanted to bench wentz could you make that decision on your own if you into that spa whether you you don't start him or or you bench. I think you're you're sending the wrong message to your football team that the season's over and and that's a that's a bad message and We after we have to work through this time. You know when when times get tough. It's you know. Sometimes that might be the easy thing to do and this. This business is about work. This business about you know detailing ownership things. I've talked about with the team as well. We gotta do that. That's coaches and players. That's not one guy. It's it's bigger. This is this sports gear the one guy and we all we all have a hand in it and we all have to fix it. What kind of non-answer is that. Everyone heard that right. That's a dude who's not trying to answer the question coach. This is a straightforward question to a super bowl. Winning coach wasn't twenty years ago. We want it was a couple of years ago. Won the super bowl out coach. Balancing at least beat ballot. Check the question coach was. It's very simple. If you wanted to bench wentz could you make that decision on your own. And the fact that he answered that tells you everything you need to know. The answer is no. Obviously he can't make that decision on his own because if he could he would say yes. I can make that decision. And i am choosing not to but he chose not to give you that answer. 'cause he's covering who's he covering for the gm howie roseman or. Is it the owner jeffrey. Lurie my money's on the owner whence got a direct line to the owner. Why else do you think once would dead up there and talk about a couple of weeks ago after another terrible performance. Why do you think you'd get up there. And say hey. This is probably the line. I'm going to have to walk my whole career. I'm never going to get that just right right like knowing when not to try to extend the play. That's the way hero was key the way we do things around here. What the way we do things around here. Why your bad. And let me tell you something. And i told this to dan orlovsky on i take today. The reason he's in this situation the reason wentz's in this situation is because of dan orlovsky and people like him. Because it's really need it. Let me start at the beginning. We start at the beginning. Let's start with the facts showy through ten games carson. Wentz has been outplayed by every single opponent. This year. ten games as nearly impossible to do. How are you plead by ten straight opponents. And as i've made this point in the past he has a player. Who's who of quarterbacks this year. he's clean backups. Mainly third stringers and daniel jones twice whence is the.
"wentz" Discussed on First Take
"One before I mentioned this guy's name I think Carson Wentz a more talented passer than this person I. Think Carson Wentz in many ways at this stage of his career is a better quarterback than this person. Carson Wentz reminds me of Ben Rothlisberger when we play together. When be before before before then Tonio Brown before. But right around that time when when we were really good as a football team but remember always have the number one number, two defense in the league. We always had an extremely coach we won football games, but we knew coming into games that we were going to have to watch being hold the ball too long. It takes sex. We knew that he was going to throw the football to the other team every now and then, but we also knew that if you got into the super bowl and maybe Larry Fitzgerald splits to two safeties outside the score a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Then he catches one in the corner of the Enzo and you need something special. You need some of that stuff you need somebody vets-go fight that maybe somehow he could drive ninety yards and hit Santona Antonio homes in corner of Enzo. But see the difference between who've been rothlisburger was than who've been Roethlisberger had around him then is why we see Carson Wentz in the way we him because he's right. He is Stephen as right here stone about a giant hightower I'm GonNa tell you something about giant Hot Zion hightower who made a great play last night on the deep ball late net game. He also dropped a third and twenty two that would have given them a first down on the other side of the fifty against the Baltimore, Ravens on the fourth play of the entire game last week because wins went back to him and so you're going to have. To live with some of these ugly things that you hate seeing because you're going to get the throw to boss this guy, you're going to get through to high tower and I want to ask you this question Ma because really this is all it comes down to at least for this year. If you're the Dallas cowboys, if you're the Washington football team, if you're the New York giants and they tell you right now to date, you can have Carson Wentz as your quarterback I believe every team takes him every coach wants him and while they want him vet team immediately becomes the front runner to win the East he knows we. I don't know I. Don't I don't think he outplayed Daniel Jones even with the with the Fault of Daniel Jones falling down I thought it was about a wash, but let me say this number one rothlisberger is a great comparison and a lot of people compared wentz to Rothlisberger. Company. Is a football player first and then a quarterback and so I get here's the difference. Rothlisberger didn't regress. Don't tell me about the people around him. Carson Wentz was the MVP the league through week. Fourteen, and since then he has regressed, the team was going nowhere with Carson Wentz. The following season Nick foles takes over after injury after Nick foles won the super bowl and the team catches fire to get to the playoffs to win a playoff game. Let me tell you I totally agree with your assessment about Ryan Clark that's why I'm hard on them. You know what you said in reference do not only on this show but also on the Max Kellerman show ESPN radio PM Eastern. Yesterday. A bunch of times way on you brought up Baker Mayfield and it was like sad day almost you guys even worse than you think he's just okay. So you stopped caring about a guy when he's just okay. Baker. Mayfield says I could be much better. No, we can't be better he can. He can play better good for him. He can work hard here never going to be elite. Carson Wentz has elite talent Ryan. That's why I'm hard on him. He can be lied he's. been elite, but it's been a long time and he's as far from elite today I. Think you're confusing sports I think in the sport of basketball where you're working with marginal talent you're in, you're in a position to take over and do things for yourself and your team that you simply can't do with football costs and Winston hightower dropped the ball. What was it a third and twenty two Ryan that she talked about any drug twenty two there's nothing that costs and wins could do. That when he can do, he cannot make five stupid plays after that to try to make it all up against the. Modern. Convinced overcompensate. Working with only six wins throughout the entire division, there's only one division that is added worse. Win Percentage record at this point in the season that would be the nineteen eighty-four AFC central. So this division is wide open. And on Sunday steelers titans in Nashville, both teams five and the big question will the steel curtain contain the disruptive Derrick Henry check this out guys. The steelers boast the most efficient run defense in the NFL and not allowed in opposing running back to top one hundred yards rushing in a game this season and only allowed such a game. Just three times over the last three years. Ryan Clarksville here with US eight from Max's giants to Stephen steelers. What do you think is going to happen? This weekend is going to be a steelers titans role with the steelers I'm rolling with the steelers don't get me wrong I'm not that sure about it. I'M NOT GONNA sit up there just like I should be confident that I mean the Tennessee titans of the real deal make no mistake about it. Considering the way the combination of Derrick Henry Enron ten bill have been performing over the last sixteen games which I saw a greedy don't get up yesterday morning and let me say this though I believe in the steelers defense against the run and I believe once you neutralize run even though it's going to be a low to do against DEMOC every 'cause he's kind of monster. The reality is, is that your dairy Ryan Tannehill the beach you and I think that that's what you put your money on if the. steelers defense. I've got questions about the secondary because they got a bunch of short dudes they're hated in the crew but I believe if it's Bajic I believe to with believe in the in what and these boys and I believe they will get to ride ten the hill they will rattle him. It's going to be a tight game. It's going to be hard for our respect the hell out of Mike. He's my coach of the year. That's why I don't care what anybody says I think Mike Gabel is done i. Think he's done a hell of a job but I just love the of attitude you see in his players they're rough riders. They don't back down for anybody they always ready the fight and I love rebel as a coat but you know how I feel about my brother Mike. Tomlin to and he ain't going anywhere and I think they're big Ben Rothlisberger with. Klay Pool all of these brothers judiciousness shoots has got to step up James Caan continue run giving me y'all games. I think if there was ever a game, put a steelers to step up, it would be this game because so you have really been anybody yet. This is the team you better come ready. I think they know it I think they will respond to the challenge the steel curtain. The Gate Iran somehow some way. And Ten hill will be neutral. Somebody got Sam because I can't seem to rely upon a form of super. Bowl champion Pittsburgh steelers. Somebody's got to do so. That's why I'm doing it. Okay. Somebody's gotTa do it. Like a bath, I didn't even notice that second you look like pass the. A path now you look like. So Ryan Tannehill. So great I love my radio and then somewhere in the Middle Uber you're steelers fan and you're like, Oh, let me say some good. Accusing me of being man. Made a great point. He's.

"So the first option is head to head records, the nats and Indians just so happen to play last season, and in every every matchup that is to come here they're the teams played in the regular season, which doesn't happen all the time sort of interesting. So, they did play at the end of last season and the nats swept three-game series in. Washington. So the nothing is really fair about that. The eventual champs do get to go ahead and play in the Indians do go home. So the nats would have been the number eight seed in this setup and they would have had to face the number five braves. The braves had the better regular season record in head to head matchup. So in my scenario, the nets are out. The number six as would have faced the number seven rays, which is actually what happened in real life in the AL wildcard round last year. So in the interest of reality, the raise move on in our world do now for the reseeding, the number seven raise would take on the number three Yankees will the number five braves will take on the number four twins. The Yankees held the heads advantage over Tampa, and so did the twins over the braves the twins then went on to face number Astros and the Yankees will take on the number two dodgers. In a stunning turn of events, the twins would take down the Astros on the strength of their four, two three record against during the regular season. Is that why I don't mind the Astros. Cheating. Scandal. Viti. Dubs like my team beat them during the regular season. So I didn't goes that big of a deal some something for me to ponder. And the Yankees would have beaten the dodgers they won their single series against them last year to one. Here's where we're just going to end the simulation because. To talk about what happens when the New York Yankees play the Minnesota twins. The important thing is that everyone had fun and learned something their sport that doesn't always need to be a champion guys. But there will be a champion. In the WNBA playoffs we'll find out this week of one of the lowest seeded teams could challenge for the title. Just. Because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it can't happen but the smart money is probably on the aces or storm who again don't have to play until Sunday. What do you think about the plan was held? That way would that be more fun I like look I like rewarding the teams that finish in the regular season on of all the formats we've looked data across the sports landscape. This one seems to reward the best seeds most. So I wonder if I wonder how fair that is but I do think single elimination and basketball works really well I think the problem with baseball is that. It's so starter dependent and it Kinda really. You kinda need to see like they both kind of built to be played in series. They play series all year long and you get the a a good of the rotation and each one of those series so. That's really what I think to find a world series winning team whereas basketball. You know we've seen in the tournament every year, the tournaments One one and done is.

The WNBA playoffs are uniquely wild and I wanted to talk more about what makes them so much fun and what other leagues might look like under a similar system. I'm sure our sports savvy listeners already know the format of the WNBA playoffs but just in case anyone has forgotten or we have some new listeners this week here's how it works the top eight teams in the standings regardless of conference make the playoffs the first round pits, the number five seed against the number eight seed. In this case, the Phoenix. Mercury. Versus The Washington mystics and the number six seed against the number seven seed. The Chicago Sky versus the Connecticut. Sun. That first round matchup is just one game winner go home. In advance the whole thing. The of those two games which are both tonight then advanced to play the number three seed left sparks and number four seed Minnesota. Lynx on Thursday in another single elimination game after those high stakes affairs, the winners will then have to face the number one seed Las Vegas Aces and the number two seed Seattle storm who will have been just with their buys during the first two rounds. Oh and teams are reseeded each around to again reward higher seats. So what this means is that a team like the sparks who went fifteen and seven during the regular season with a six, eighty, two winning percentage could just be done if they have you know one bad.

"But when you have a series where a team gets a chance to adjust and really look at what they're doing wrong or how you're having this accessory over seven games, it's really difficult to sustain that and the rockets are built in a way where I don't really know what adjustments they can make. They don't have a rotation where they can just throw in a big man to stop Lebron the Ram To Stop Anthony Davis if. If somebody like PJ Tucker gets worn down from having assignment to cover someone that's five inches taller than he is they don't have things that they can go to. It's kind of all or nothing and I. think that's kind up the story the rockets right now everything they have between this all in trade for Westbrook between the lineup that they use coming to everything. So all end and I just don't know that they're really designed to make adjustments the way that you need to do when you get to the playoffs, it's either this was good enough for it wasn't very. So. Christie wrote about all options being on the table. Now, for the rockets, we need a new coach. Just for starters. What where do they go from here what a specific kind of coach help them or is that the style in the style? So closely associated with Mike Dantonio that is there someone new that can come in and rethink this or are they sort of locked into that? I have no idea. I mean I think that I think that you know maybe coach can come in the only thing I can really think of, and this is someone who would be at the top of my list near the top millis. No matter what team. was running. Kenny Atkinson to me it seemed like potentially a smart higher here. The reason I say that is a really really great record with guards. Someone, that got a lot of credit. He was the guy that worked with Jeremy Lin a new. York. was an assistant under my guten.

"We're going to hear from Doug Peterson Carson wentz in the minutes after the eagles. Big Seventeen to nine win over the Dallas cowboys on Sunday. And then we'll hear from. Doug Peterson Jason once again from his Monday afternoon. News Conference after he'd had twenty four hours to digest the eagles huge win over the Dallas cowboys. A Win that keeps their season in alive a win that was essentially a playoff win for the eagles as they needed to beat the cowboys on Sunday to keep their hopes of making the postseason alive and they did that by winning. Seventeen to nine of course as you all know and we will break it all down for you here coming up in the next few minutes as we hear from Doug and we hear from Carson tremendous game from both of those those guys but as we lead off my three things To start off this episode of at the podium the main thing the number one takeaway is yes. Carson Wentz was great. Doug Peterson John was great. But this win belongs to the defense. I my main concern coming into this game. was how in the heck the Eagles Defense which has struggled at times this year we we saw them struggle against the giants. We saw them struggle against Washington. The last two weeks we know the struggles they've had against really some bad offenses in the Falcons and the Lions wins and specifically the dolphins. How are they going to stop the number one offense in football the Dallas cowboys? How are they going to slow down? Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper. Three guys. They have not been able to stop over the last four games and the eagles defense came through Jim. Schwartz came through the secondary came through. They didn't have come Gruza Hill. He was lost for the rest of the season They had a banged up. Derrick Barnett Fletcher Cox Brain. Grandma had been struggling at different points. This season I honestly honestly didn't know I didn't know how defense was going to slow down the Dallas cowboys offense and yet they found a way to do it and one of the things that made me feel a little bit more confident as the week went on was I started to look at the eagles. Defenses home road splits and this is a completely different defensive unit when they are playing at Lincoln financial field going going into play on Sunday. The defense allowed an average of seventeen point eight points per game at home. They allowed a quarterback rating of eighty two point five and they only gave up an average of five point. Eight yards per. Play away from Lincoln. Financial Field quarterbacks had a rating of one or two point four. That's twenty points higher and average yards per play. I have seven point. Four three and the Eagles Defense on the road had given up. twenty-nine points per game twenty nine versus seventeen point eight points per game. That's a huge difference. Tonight's as I was looking over those numbers I thought to myself. No maybe maybe the defense can come through at home. That's exactly what they did on Sunday afternoon. So Ah Eight Home Games. This year the defense gave up an average of just sixteen point eight points per game. That is the third best home average in in the NFL. This is the third best home defense in the national football league. which if the eagles can finish the job against the New York giants on Sunday afternoon? Noon and Sundays Win Against Dallas means. Nothing if they don't follow it up with a win in New York against a four Win New York giants team but if they can do that they will have finished up the season as the third best home defense in the NFL and if they can get that home playoff game in the first round by winning the division they can beat the seahawks they can beat Seattle or San Francisco in Lincoln financial field. They almost beat the seahawks at home earlier. This year offensive core playing playing the way they are right now in that Seattle game they probably win that Seattle game and so I think that gives the eagles a great chance if they can manage to beat the giants the way this defense plays at home gives them a shot to beat anybody in the first round of the playoffs. They held Dallas to fifty four yards rushing in this game and kept them out of the end zone. You can't can't ask for anything more than that Ray. Dinger said on the post game. Show that the cowboys had just one snap inside the eagles red zone all game long incredible job. They had a steel curtain at the twenty yard. Line all game just phenomenal. The cowboys were twenty one percent on third down. They came into the game as the best third down team in the NFL NFL converting nearly half of their third down opportunities Ezekiel Elliott. Who has been a terror against the eagles? He had gone for over one hundred yards cards in each of his last three games against Philadelphia thirteen carries for forty seven yards. Just a three point six average for Elliot Sidney Jones. What a what a late season Sidney Jones is having? He's still not getting on the field all that much but remembering the Monday night game against the giants when he made that huge third down pass break-up to essentially save the game for the Eagles allowed the eagles to to get go on that final drive and allowed Carson Wentz to eventually win the game in overtime. Sidney Jones. Making the play of the game that Monday night was was unbelievable and then he comes back as the eagles were dealing with injuries to Ronald Darby and jalen mills went. went out for a little bit for him to make that pass. break-up on that fourth-down Gallup I think it was. Who is the wide receiver on that? Play what had just a tremendous play by. Sidney Jones owns on the final defensive. Play the game to seal the win for Philadelphia as the cowboys. Were trying to drive down the field down eight. You gotTa feel good for a guy who's the second round pick. A couple of years ago has been a healthy scratch. Most of the second half of the season he had been brutal. He had killed this team in the first half of the season in gym shorts shorts just couldn't put him on the field anymore once Ronald Darby and once Jalen Mills got healthy. They just could not play him. They couldn't afford to do it. He was making too many mistakes to see him. Come through late in the season just it must be a tremendous feeling for him to contribute here down the stretch. Malcolm Jenkins finally looked like a superstar player out there. He was all over. The place. Jenkins has been fun this year. But he hasn't been making star level plays he made star level plays I mean. They needed at least one of their star defensive players to make plays on Sunday afternoon and Malcolm Jenkins was everywhere. Tremendous game from Malcolm Jenkins now. The defense did benefit from awesome. Poor play by the cowboys. I think they had six drops. The cowboys did DAK missed a number of long throws well. Guess what the Eagles have lost about three or four games. This year are because of drops and because of throws Carson Wentz didn't make early on sometimes these things even out a little bit sometimes defense has to get a little bit of luck and they certainly certainly did that but the eagles game plan coming into this game was was pretty clear they didn't want to blitz. They looked at the numbers that showed that that Prescott was one of the better quarterbacks against the blitz this year and so they rushed for most of the game and they basically played man demand in some in some pretty straight strict zone. They didn't do anything crazy in this game. The big key was that they were disciplined. They they really focused on stopping Zeke. You'll Elliott and they made the plays that were in front of them. They tackled tackling was huge. In this game you see how something as simple as tackling can be when you're playing and letting letting receivers make make catches in front one of you. The key is to tackle to prevent them from getting the first down. Because if you if you can keep a receiver on third and six keep make that Prescott throw the ball and four yards down the field to yards in front of the first down marker and then Rapa guy up. You're going to get off the field. Every time the tackling was huge in this game. It has been it has been missing. It has been lacking for most of the second half of the season. But here in this game the tackling was tremendous. And that's what this defense needs to do from here on out if they're gonNA make stops you'd like to have seen more pressure on that Prescott. The only got one Saka Vinny Curry sack in this game but he did a lot of dumping off in the Eagles was held. And when you when you hold a team to just three field goals when you don't let them get more than one snap inside the red zone just tremendous effort by Jim swartz. This was the biggest biggest reason why the eagles one on Sunday afternoon. A very disciplined game by the eagles a well called game by Jim swartz great job by a unit that has been getting filleted played. Gym Shorts probably saved his job on Sunday afternoon. Once again he probably did enough to save his job working with a with a core that I just I wrote for bleeding green nation this week. I didn't know how they were going to beat back Prescott in the offense especially given how back in the offense looked against the rams the week before they looked like a machine again. You saw the talent that they had but but for whatever reason Dallas just couldn't they did not show up yesterday. They couldn't get the offense going in the defense did the job let's let's be fair though Carson Wentz is is proving the doubters wrong. And that's the second thing here is what Carson Wentz his doing here down. The stretch is flat out ridiculous. He's the first quarterback in NFL history to record thirty or more completions and have no interceptions in three straight games. That's insane what an insane. Statistic Ruben Franken noted that since two thousand seventeen only Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers. Have more games with at least one touchdown and no interceptions than Wentz and Carson has missed a bunch of time since two thousand seventeen in December wentz has a sixty eight percent. Completion percentage one thousand two hundred twenty passing yards nine touchdowns one interception option and a one zero one point seven passer rating. He's doing all this with Greg Ward. Jj Theta Whiteside Mile Sanders. Boston Scott and his two outstanding in tight ends and hey give. Jj credit for some big catches on that first drive he kinda disappeared later in the game. But that's when the eagles started going to a lot more screen passes a lot more to the tight ends and that seemed to work for sure. I mean it's Carson's not chuck in the ball down the field but they are finding ways to get these guys open and now Carson needs just one hundred sixty seven passing yards against the giants on Sunday to pass Donovan mcnabb for the most yards in a single season by Eagles quarterback three thousand nine hundred sixteen. He needs just two hundred fifty yards for four thousand yards passing to become the eagles..
"wentz" Discussed on First Things First
"A bombshell report came out this week calling future of the franchise Carson Wentz both egotistical and selfish cited anonymous players a number of his teammates have since come out and defending. Their quarterback yesterday. It was Jason Kelsey spoke out ripped the report saying I go to war any day of the week and twice on Sunday. With guys like Carson Wentz Markle was your reaction to this Maria should somebody. You know, there's somebody within the organization that's disgruntled. It's kind of like you talked about Colby's Lee. You know, it's always somebody else's fault. Corson wants having met with the eagles having met with Carson once and just watched those guys rally around him a year ago. I did eagles game with Carson once they absolutely love that guy for the majority of that team. They love that guy. And that guy's an unselfish football player that puts the team first. So I don't know what you would like I heard talking about this yesterday. And you know, it's a disgruntled wide receiver. That's not getting his shine that he thinks he should get or because Nick foles comes in and distributes the ball little bit differently than Carson Wentz. Does your mad about that? But the bottom line is. I think the guys who have stood up guys who come to the fore for. The guys who aren't cowards that leave things in ass-. You know, the guys who have come to rally round Carson Wentz. Those guys that I would put more Meriden those guys trust more. There's a number of things coming out of this report that I don't like does the reporter have plenty of time to build ask questions. He could've went to all the press conference. He could a question Carson Wentz. There's a number things he could have done to validate. This report that he decided not to do. So I know my I don't have a school named after me as far as broadcasting journalism, but just some of the basics as far as following a getting someone to be able to go on the record those things would have helped his credibility. Now. I am a person that will have X teammate say some of the same thing. They said about Carson Wentz. Oh, he's selfish. You damn right. I'm you'd better be selfish to be a good football player. You have to be selfish. You can be selfish within the team concept. But you've got gotta get yourself ready. No one else is getting you ready. So I do believe there's a great deal. Of selfishness that you have to take into being a great team was it about ego. No, it wasn't about ego. But anytime, you're good at something. And you have confidence, you know, what people say, oh, he's got an ego. Well, tell me who you know, does not have an ego. So I'm not necessarily believing in the reports anonymously players and everything I believe there was one right? We why receiver that might have a problem with it are two that's the way they go. I believe the eagles. Biggest problems their offense coordinator, I believe that might grow. We don't know if he is cut out for this. So even guys can plane is basically the backlash of losing your quarterback coach Frank, right, and John D Felipo you lost both him. And then you bring in someone who's never called plays in in a fail. They're always typically been problems. And I think that's more of the problem in Philadelphia now than Carson and one of the other things in this report was that once def- elite bow and Reich went out the building Carson was able to kind of run. On over might grow. Which speaks to seize point. I I think this actually can be a positive moment for the eagles. Because there's so much noise surrounding foles and Wentz foles is going to almost surely be on a different team here. Now, they have a rallying point around their quarterback. You have the leaders of the team Fletcher, Cox lane Johnson gyp, Jason Kelsey, some of those prominent most established most respected guys on the team going on the record saying, this is our guy, and the other reason I think it can be a positive is even in criticism that you think is unfair even in anonymous criticism. I think you can have a moment of introspection saying how much of that is true the person that's that. I carry myself like I've won multiple Super Bowls, and I wanna playoff game, even if it's mostly unfair. But how I carry myself this report, wait a second way..

"Anyway. And I'm not saying this report is necessarily being unfair in the sense that I think it is sourced. And I think Joe, you know, he he obviously did talk to these people with information. But I think how we perceive. This information can be taken a little bit out of context. And I think it can. Be extrapolated to to maybe give more weight to it than it actually deserves in the sense of. I don't think because this report comes out means that eagles are doomed at quarterback forever. And I think that's your takeaway. I just think that's a little too harsh. Now, I'm not saying it's not concerning at all. By just think there's always room for somewhere in between the the doomsday scenario and everything is fine. And I think that's kind of where the story lies lies in between. Everything is fine. And this is a real issue. It's somewhere in between those two things now. Something I've talked about a lot and something I think is the crux of this. Carson Wentz story considering seems to be a lot about his attitude and how he is perceived is character all those kind of things. And by the way, the report does say a lot of his teammates. A lot of sources feel like Carson wins is a very hard working intelligent all the kind of adjectives. We've heard about him and things we just know about him to be true based on the work ethic. We've seen those things are true. It's not like, you know, this report is saying that he's just the worst person in lazy. And no, that's not what this report is saying, you know, you have to actually read the report in and understand like for you know, as much as there is going to be Carson Wentz criticism in this report that also does give him credit in some areas and one thing getting that to are saying though about the crux of this being about Carson Wentz, his personality and. The way he's being perceived as that I just don't think Carson wins is necessarily mature as he could. Ideally be in. Now, I've talked about this before I mentioned this. I believe radio thirty one a couple of weeks ago. Maybe even as recently as the recent the last episode we did here where I and this is something I've been thinking about for a while now..
"wentz" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"As an elite quarterback he'll use the game as a platform to prove. He's not remotely on that Prescott level the difference in this game will be Carson Wentz being better than back Prescott. Are joining the desks now are former NFL star Shawn Merriman, and Dan's low hall Marcellus we will start with you. Yeah. Should we pump the brakes on saying that Dak is closing the gap on Carson Wentz who hit the gas on that? Who to come home cook it right there? That's some love right there. I looked only way to Dak is closing the gap is because Carson Wentz this year compared to his MVP campaign last year is backing up just a step, but he's playing himself into form. They're not on the same level. And it's okay. It's not an indictment on deck your tongue comparing him to another young stud who was MVP candidate before injury. Deck has never been an MVP candidate. I mean, even in his rookie year. We were just like. Wow, overachiever while maybe the franchise is in good hands post Romo, but no one ever put him in the MVP conversation. I'm not going to insert him right now. You look at his quarterback rating ninety five applause you look at Carson Wentz who took a step back one hundred and one still playing better with one and a half knee. So respect to adak is dumb. But Carson is still greater do, you know, a Dag did as a rookie? He protected. The football protectors hosts and if he can protect the football moving forward. He can absolutely be on the same playing field. It's Carson Wentz. Now that isn't gonna do it the way Carson Wentz desert. He's not going to sit back and throw the ball thirty forty times a game. He's going to rely on his reign game. He's gonna protect the football. And he's gonna take shots when he needs to I played against both of these guys. And to me is not a real big difference. Because and uses his legs kinda like Cam Newton does. And Carson Wentz is gonna throw the ball. But he can't use his legs as well. Kind of like a Aaron Rodgers. I'm not saying he's Aaron Rodgers. But like those are the two guys doesn't mean Cam Newton's wasn't an MVP. It just means they win different ways. And I absolutely think that is a lot closer to Carson Wentz. The numbers don't lie number for don't allow things. Look at look at the women. They lost all really selling this selling this game. They're trying to. I just I just went. I wanted to saying that Prescott right now is taking credit for what the team is doing the defense is playing well, they're playing well other phase of the game and Dak Prescott is kind of riding opponent a little bit. And he's getting the credit for it. We just showed a clip of wins. Carson Wentz roll out of the pocket and throwing that accurate pass that Prescot. Couldn't do that to save his life. That's that's how I compare these guys. If what one across the board Dak Prescott is nowhere near would Carson winters? Carson Wentz is coming off the injury. People don't understand when you have a big knee injury. Like that. Yeah. You can play in six months eight months, but you're not completely comfortable to twelve and fourteen months. He's working this way back in he's getting comfortable in the fielding in. And that's why wouldn't when you see later on this these last few games he's really going to start turning up because he's Nell confident in his body. And we're starting to see that we didn't see that earlier in the year. Right. He was he wasn't confident. And he talked about that throw on the run on ride the pocket. You talk about the. Touchdown pass extending to play outside the pocket. That's his formulas formula is to extend place to go out there and use his arm talent worse. I really don't know what Dax formula is other than to of history years. He's had great defense two of his three years two plus would Zeki alien to run game. But the suspension obviously undermined that. But you're correct. He is taking credit in a large sum for what is surrounding him. Which is usually a great defense and usually a great running game. But why is that surrounding him is surrounding him because they have the money to do that moving. Forward deck is who he is. That was drafted in the third round one hundred solitaire round pick. Okay..
"wentz" Discussed on NFL Live
"Hello, everybody on this Wednesday. I'm Wendy. Adam Schefter Josina Anderson, Darren woods. And we start this afternoon with news out of Philadelphia, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was kept out of team drills for the third straight BRAC. This he is forced working his way back from surgery to repair to torn knee, ligaments, seven, and a half months ago. Here is Carson Wentz on his progress. I think ever since even the injury, you know, we've been saying it's a fluid process. You know, it's constantly fluid process and some days you're feeling better than other days. So could there be some change in plan for sure. But you know, this is this is part of the plan right now. So we're sticking to the haven't been cleared for contacts, and I know that's kind of part of the reason just want to keep me out of some of those wanna say more controlled environments right now going forward, but I'm sticking to my goal the hope to be week one. But if not, you know, it's a fluid process and we'll see. We'll see as we get going. We have discussed often that when making your way from an injury like this, it is not always linear. It can be two steps forward. One step back. That's to be expected Adam, do you sense? Any concern at all right now regarding Carson Winston, his recovery know that they're being smart. It's August, I, this was timber. I in the pulling him out for three days. We'd be having a different discussion, but there are still many days left for him to get ready for that Thursday night, regular season opener. I still think that he is in play to start that game. Alternately, I would guess, and it's a guest that he wanted up starting that game against the falcons. And I think they're just being smart Peterson, saw some has on Saturday over the weekend a little bit. But this process when he perked the knee, initially doctors told him nine to twelve months, nine months to be right at the front end, there's no need to rush. They're being smart. And I still think that he's gonna have a real chance to play in the third night opening. I, I agree. Listen, why rushed the process he Isn't isn't. that have to play right now? And they have a security break like the Nick foles who can get some added reps as well. And you're talking about a team right now personnel wise, that when Carson Wentz comes back on this put ball team, he's one hundred percent and ready to go. This team is probably going to win the NFC east. They had the personnel to do so. And right now I'm looking at Carson Winston, get you relax. Relax a little bit. Slow down. He's competitive. I understand that the slowdown little bit and get your the right idea in Philadelphia to have trust the process for the Sixers, don't rush the. Makes me right. And you want that adept tation to be slow, but eventually also, you wanna start to peel back the mental layer so that he's not flinching when he's behind center. Because obviously, when you start going up against defenses that don't have green and white, you don't have time to be flinching. You gotta be moving at game speed, and that happens mentally and physically. So obviously you gotta start to get into that water at some point what a great quarterback situation as they whole, though, if you're the Philadelphia Eagles just a luxury of riches. The first preseason game, believe it or not of the two thousand eighteen season just a little more than twenty four hours away. Now, the hall of fame game coming up tomorrow night. You can see the clock is ticking eight o'clock eastern Chicago and Baltimore who've been in camp for quite some time because they do play tomorrow night. I say the bears are in camp. Who is it? Linebacker rope wants, man. He is now the last unsigned rookie the eighth overall pick looking for specific language..
