Is there any doubt about who the Philadelphia Eagles’ most underappreciated player is?
Whenever there’s some sort of re-release or reissue of Webster’s Dictionary (if there is such a thing), the words “underappreciated”, “disrespected”, and “undervalued” must carry Carson Wentz‘s name in the definition.
He crafted an MVP-level resume before tearing his MCL and ACL doing what Carson Wentz always does, selling out with his body in an attempt to make a play. Then after shredding two ligaments in his knee, he stayed on the field to complete the drive and throw touchdown pass number 33, an Eagles franchise record. One year later, he played 11 games and threw 21 touchdown passes with what was literally a broken back.
You saw what he did in 2020. He lost teammates to injury. Two of his wide receivers were out to short-circuit his career, and with scout team guys, when he had to get the job done, he did just that.
Yes, Wentz has to stay healthy. Availability is a skill in the NFL, but if you’re one of those people who can’t see this guy’s greatness, you should really consider staying silent when you hear people discussing football. The talent is obvious.
