Time flies. It’s already Year 5 of the Carson Wentz era, and the analysis is all over the place. To some, he’s potentially one of the best who has proven that he can play at an MVP level and elevate teammates who may be seen as being less talented. To others, he’s overrated, injury-prone, and needs to be run out of town.
You can’t mention that late-game stretch in 2019 without bringing up the fact that his final four games featured two games against the New York Giants, a game against the Dallas Cowboys, and another game versus the Washington Redskins. No one’s confusing the NFC East with the superior competition of the pro game, but who Wentz plays isn’t his decision. All he can do is show up when asked to.
He threw for 4,000 yards despite not having a wide receiver go over 500 yards receiving. This is probably said every season, but in 2020, he may take the field with the best receiving corps that he’s had. The doubters will exist until Wentz wins a Super Bowl or he, at least, begins to win a few playoff games, but Philly has a huge question answered while other teams don’t.
They’re certain about who their franchise signal-caller is.
