A Philadelphia Eagles legend and a few experts weigh in on Carson Wentz
As you might imagine, a recent criticism of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has sparked a ton of discussion. Let’s take a trip around the web.
Who knew we’d be talking about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz for this reason? Once we learned who’s be in Super Bowl 53 on Sunday night and we went to bed, none of us probably figured that we’d wake up to The Philly Voice and Joseph Satoliquito’s story on several members inside the Eagles organization calling Wentz ‘selfish’.
That’s exactly where we are though. Teammates came to his defense. Sure, we knew Zach Ertz would be one of them. Those guys are buds, and you have to figure if they’re together for a while, Ertz is probably going to be a Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.
Still, it was nice to see ’86’ stick up for ’11’. Heck, it was nice to see everyone stick up for the franchise, but outside of teammates, what’s everyone else saying? FS1’s Colin Cowherd had his take. So did the team over at ESPN’s First Take.
Let’s check in with the always emotional Stephen A. Smith and the crew to find out.

We, now, take you from Cowherd’s former employer back to his present one. Eagles legend Brian Westbrook joined the panel over at FS1’s highly-popular First Thing’s First to share his thoughts, but it was, perhaps, the words of former Eagles wide receiver Cris Carter that will stick with us when we think of this conversation.
Take a listen for yourself.

So what have we learned? Wentz is human? Maybe all of this was overblown?
Whatever your take is, remember a couple of things. When he walked off of the field in Los Angeles, this guy was an MVP candidate. Why do so many people feel as though he’s forgotten how to play? He’ll be back on time for the team’s offseason workout program. Let’s re-evaluate then. In the meantime, let’s keep the character assassinations to a minimum.
