Sometimes it’s hard to understand what people are thinking when they say things, particularly when the subject turns to the Philadelphia Eagles and their quarterback, Carson Wentz.
It’s amazing how time flies. There’s about a month left in the NFL season, and about ten days left until the anniversary of the day that the Philadelphia Eagles were set on a course that would change the franchise forever. On December 10th of 2017, Carson Wentz went down with an MCL and LCL tear in Los Angeles.
It won’t be long before the Eagles return to the same stadium to face the team they were playing when they lost their MVP candidate. You know the story well. The guy that was supposed to lead Philly to their first Lombardi Trophy had to sit while Nick Foles, a man the Eagles got rid of and brought back, led them to a Super Bowl victory.
Some thought Wentz would sit out for one full calendar year. He returned early, and though he’s statistically a better signal caller by some accounts (you have to throw out a loss to the New Orleans Saints), ‘The Birds’ have struggled.
Recently, NFL Network National Insider Ian Rapoport reported that someone ‘with knowledge of his rehab’ might believe that Wentz isn’t totally recovered from his injury. Take a look at this one:
As you’d imagine, Philly’s top quarterback on the depth chart got asked about this one the last time he addressed the Philadelphia media. As expected, he flashed that smile, and he met the question head on.
Here’s some of his response:
"I heard about that, and I don’t know where that came from, to be honest. I feel good. I’ve analyzed my mechanics, really, all the way throughout this injury. I’ve never felt that as an issue at all, and I feel really good with where I’m at."
Well, that should settle that. How Mr. Wentz plays on Monday Night Football should go a long way in answering questions about whether or not he’s ‘tentative’. Most people who follow this team closely would probably acknowledge that they haven’t seen anything to give that one any validity.
In all honesty, we can put this one to bed.
