It doesn’t take much effort to figure out why the Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback didn’t win MVP honors in 2019.
If you’re actually asking yourself right now why Wentz didn’t get more MVP consideration, you shouldn’t agonize too much. We all know why he didn’t, or at least we should. The NFL has guys like Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, and DeShaun Watson running around, but if you can abstain from the Sportscenter Top 10 on ESPN for a second and do a little film study, Carson Wentz is just as valuable to his team as they are to theirs, if not more so.
That one should be easy to figure out. You can use the eyeball test or look at numbers, but Philly doesn’t win Super Bowl 52 or win the NFC East in 2019 without Wentz’s contribution.
Still, not convinced? It’s okay. Any statement involving the name Carson Wentz and the words “most valuable player” figure to spark controversy. It was expected that some of you would need more of a push than others. This one is for all of you.
Then again, If Russell Wilson isn’t getting any votes, a man the Seattle Seahawks clearly couldn’t live without, you can’t really be surprised if “11” gets the cold shoulder, but regardless of all of that, here are three reasons Wentz could have won the MVP trophy in 2019.
