The Philadelphia Eagles’ star quarterback gets a top-ten nod.
We’re entering the fifth year of the Carson Wentz and Doug Pederson Philadelphia Eagles era, and sometimes, it feels like we aren’t any closer to solving anything about QB1 than we were in 2016. It’s almost as if you could rewind the tape to 2016 post-draft and hear the exact same conversations and questions that you’re hearing now.
Who’s better? Is it Jared Goff or Carson Wentz? Philly’s quarterback has had some injuries in the past. Can he stay healthy for an entire season? Can this guy lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory?
See? The more things change, the more they stay the same. The conversation is no longer about whether or not Philly can win a Super Bowl. The questions are about when will they win another and if “11” is the guy to get them there.
If you’ve followed Philly over the past four seasons, something has to be clear now. Carson Wentz will never get the respect he truly deserves until he leads the “Birds” into football’s biggest game and wins it all. Until then, arguments in every break room and on every message board will continue. That you can count on.
Guess what Philadelphia Eagles fans. ESPN is throwing their two cents in.
It’s July, and a common theme is the hot topic, power rankings. Recently, NFL signal-callers took center stage as the “Worldwide Leader in Sports” took a swing at things. Here’s what they came up with. Carson Wentz made the top ten. Here’s your breakdown.
First of all, how did Matthew Stafford make the list? That one’s a head-scratcher and you can argue about whether or not Aaron Rodgers is too high, especially now. Still, for the most part, it’s a solid list.
No one will argue about whether or not Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson need to be where they are. No one outside of the game’s most delusional fan base will argue about Wentz being ahead of Dak Prescott.
One can win with any supporting cast. The other has had the weapons and still hasn’t gotten it done. You all can argue among yourselves about which one falls under which category. Here’s a word to the wise though if you aren’t already privy to this information. Try not to argue about football with a Dallas Cowboys fan. There’s really no point.
