Myth Number Five
“Carson Wentz is a selfish leader, diva, etc.”
No thanks to the PhillyVoice article that came out last month, everybody has officially lost their minds about Wentz’s ability to manage a locker room. Once upon a time, Wentz was viewed as the sweet prince of the city. Now, he’s just some selfish bully diva that only cares about himself all because of an article that was written in a negative tone with a clear bias in it.
Can we really judge who has better leadership between Wentz and Foles? No, that would be impossible. But to assume that Wentz is a bad leader because of a controversial hit piece is insane. Do you see that patch on Carson Wentz’s jersey labeled with a ‘C’ with two stars filled in? That means he’s been a captain for the past two years. And do you know how Wentz gets to wear that captain’s patch? Well, the team votes for it. Not everybody is going to be love, Wentz. But it’s clear that a majority of the team respects Wentz enough to make him a leader.
If you paid close attention to the reaction of that piece too, a majority of the Eagles most prominent leaders came to Wentz’s defense. And that includes former coaches and players as well. Carson Wentz is an imperfect human being, what a terror. All sarcasm aside, there’s no reason to panic over a hit piece. Wentz admitted to having some flaws, but players need to fail in order to fix something up and succeed. Wentz is the future of this team, and the Eagles are going to be just fine. Don’t run him out of this town, Eagles fans.
