Here’s a little more evidence for Philadelphia Eagles fans that this is an issue.

Wentz had issues with John DeFilippo because he coached him too hard. Press Taylor was elevated. How’s that going? Taylor is more of an enabler. He and Wentz get along better, but guess what? He’s Wentz’s quarterback coach and his buddy. Wentz has never looked worse.

We won’t call Carson Wentz a mental midget because that’s not true, but he is spoiled. He played in South Dakota where the press is nothing like the press in Philly. 11 is used to being told how great he is. Hearing someone tell him that he needs to improve appears to be an issue. Having to look over his shoulder is an issue. Criticism isn’t welcomed.

You heard him say it on many occasions yourselves. ‘I don’t listen to the media’. Is anyone willing to bet the over-under on how much he’d listen to the media if they were praising him? Don’t tell us that he wouldn’t tune in to hear that. The pendulum continues to swing in Philly.

Trending. Studs and duds from a Week 12 catastrophe. light

QB1 is upset about the Hurts selection. Don’t blame our staff if we don’t care. Our staff won’t blame you as a fan if you do. Mr. Wentz needs to grow up though. He’s a quarterback in the NFL. Seriously, what’s next. Are we going to have to tuck Carson Wentz in at night and read him a bedtime story? Where’s Buddy Ryan when you need him?
