The worst Philadelphia Eagles might be the two most important.

Zero: Carson Wentz, Quarterback. 

Carson Wentz‘s two best games in 2020 were played versus the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both ended in a loss. Everyone might be split on what the issues are, but it’s obvious that the fifth-year quarterback continues to regress and there are no signs of his struggles ending.

Wentz isn’t a good quarterback. Is it coaching? Is it a mentality? Maybe it’s a combination of all of those things. No one seems to know for sure, including the Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff. Does he have traffic cones blocking for him? Yes, he does. Does he have a bunch of underdeveloped talent around him? The answer to that is also yes.

11’s downward spiral continues. The Eagles aren’t going to bench him. Doug Pederson has already been on record during his Week 11 post-game conference stating that Wentz is the starter moving forward. Speaking of the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, you didn’t think we’d bring up duds and not mention him, did you?

The biggest zero on this week’s list: Doug Pederson, Head Coach. 

Philadelphia’s head coach isn’t on the zero lists because of his play-calling (though it still was feeble). Coach Pederson is on this list because his team is a dumpster fire, and he has no idea about how to fix it of a season. Doug Pederson looked just as lost as defensive end Joe Ostman was after being stiff-armed out of the stadium. Remember that?

Here’s a question. How much more of this can the Eagles chairman and CEO Jeff Lurie take before he steps in to make serious changes? A common thought would be to let both Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman have one more offseason to fix things, but with this season continuing to spiral out of control and with the Eagles leadership being clueless about how to stop this or even slow down the process, that may not be the plan for too much longer.
