Philadelphia Eagles fans will want to watch Carson Wentz’s most recent interview. Well, when has that ever not been the case?
To call Carson Wentz‘s ride in the NFL a roller coaster doesn’t quite describe things accurately enough. The Philadelphia Eagles‘ quarterback has been the topic of quite a few discussions, and to be frank, he’s really still getting his feet wet.
He’s ripped up two very important ligaments in his knee, and he’s literally had a broken back. He was a legitimate MVP candidate in his second season before going down in Los Angeles. Then, we had to wait on clearance from doctors before he could join his teammates on the field in 2018.
His third season in the NFL ended with him injured again. Since then, the Eagles went to the playoffs for a second-straight season without him, he’s been cast out by some of the fan base and he’s been labeled as selfish.
Wentz answered those claims as we expected he would, with dignity. Now, with that finally behind him, he can focus on doing his job. Recently, he sat down with Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro. Here’s the result of that conversation.

We, now, have some definite answers about Philly’s quarterback situation. The Eagles planned to exercise Nick Foles‘ option, but in the end, it appears he’ll opt out. Wentz will be given the reigns again and won’t have to look over his shoulder.
Philly never said he needed to, but some of the fans did. Whether players admit it or not, that stuff creeps in the minds of these guys sometimes. Wentz has overcome a knee injury, attacks on his character and now, as his spine heals, it’s time to go back to work.
We’re already two months into 2019. You see how time flies. There will be an NFL Combine, free agency and an NFL Draft before you know it. Then, it will be time for 2019’s regular season. The journey continues. Philly will be looking for a third straight playoff appearance. This time, they plan to bring ’11’ with them.
