When Philadelphia Eagles fans show up to Lincoln Financial Field in 2019 for a game, or when they drive past and glance over, they’ll see a nice upgrade at the stadium.
The ‘City of Brotherly Love’ has absolutely no problem showing any love to their sports heroes, even if they’re fictional. You do realize Rocky has a statue right? While there may be no statues around town that immortalize Philly’s franchise signal caller, Carson Wentz, yet, Philadelphians won’t have any problem being reminded that ’11’ has the keys to the franchise when they ride past Lincoln Financial Field or show up for a game.
Wentz’s image has been added to ‘The Linc’.
Take a look.
Fire up the ‘Wentz Wagon’ and start selling tickets for a few rides. ’11’ isn’t going anywhere.
He may not have the Super Bowl victory on his resume or the statue that will forever immortalize him asking head coach Doug Pederson ‘You want Philly Philly?’. He may have missed the opportunity to be forever known as the first quarterback to deliver the Lombardi Trophy to a nation of starving fans. He may not be tied for the most touchdown passes in a single game.
No all of those honors belong to Nick Foles, but here’s what Wentz does have. He has the trust of his coaches, his general manager and owner. He owns the team record for the most completions in a season. He owns the team record for the most touchdowns in a single season.
The Super Bowls will come. So will the stats, and eventually, we may be looking at an Eagles Hall of Fame nod or a statue. Here’s what we do know. When Tom Brady and Drew Brees finally decide to call it a career, the NFC belongs to Carson Wentz. Until that happens, we can all settle for seeing his image on ‘The Linc’. It’s a nice touch.
