Philadelphia Eagles legend and radio color analyst Mike Quick took some time to speak with the Philly media on a very popular subject, quarterback Carson Wentz.
Ladies and gentlemen, former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and one half of their game day radio team, Mike Quick is excited. That can be said about any ‘Birds’ fan, but seeing a legend get pumped up is something else entirely. Recently, the Philly media caught up with him, and when the subject turned to franchise signal caller Carson Wentz, a man who shares the record for the longest touchdown reception in NFL history was very complimentary.
It appears that he’s just as satisfied with Wentz’s camp as everybody else is.
Here’s a quote.
"I think one of the most important things is the consistency that I’m seeing out of Carson. I think everyone can have a good day, and, you know, everyone’s going to have days when they’re really good, but I think he’s been able to stack days where he’s had a good day, (and) come back and have another good day. When you’re able to do that, stack good days, you really start to see the consistency. That’s what’s going to matter in the long run."

2016 was the last time any Philadelphia Eagles fan saw Wentz on the field for an entire 16-game regular season slate. He was drafted in that same year’s draft by the ‘Birds’ and seen as one half of a marriage that bonded both he and a rookie NFL head coach, one Doug Pederson.
In just three seasons, that Pederson hire has done exactly what it was supposed to do. It brought a Super Bowl victory and a Lombardi Trophy to a franchise that had neither. Pederson’s 4-1 playoff record has been constructed without having his franchise quarterback available for any postseason game Philly’s participated in for the past two seasons.
To keep their star upright, the Eagles invested in their line with two draft picks in the last two NFL Drafts, an Isaac Seumalo extension extensions and their re-addition of Stefen Wisniewski. The goal? It’s simple. Keep Carson Wentz on the field. If that happens, the theory is, with the additions they’ve made at the skill positions, Philly will be in prime position to make another title run.
They’re one of the favorites in the NFC. Can they place another Lombardi Trophy on the shelf? Time will soon tell. For now, they need to take things game by game.
