. . . Carson Wentz, quarterback. 11. player. 54

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you had to know this was coming.

It’s been five years of Carson Wentz in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey, and this fan base is still split on what the diagnosis of the first half-decade of his career is. If you’ve been arguing with coworkers, close friends, or your significant other, fear not, for you are not alone.

Carson Wentz still hasn’t won a playoff game, and at this point, you almost have to ask yourself when the guy we saw last season will ever win a regular-season game again. Still, the word coming out of the NovaCare Complex is executive vice president and general manager Howie Roseman and Chairman/CEO Jeffrey Lurie haven’t given up hope. Oh well. What do they know about football, right?

If Philly had any plans of trading 11, even if those plans are small, the best time to do so is now. Sure, there will be a financial penalty, but it isn’t as severe as it would be if Philly’s brass decided to move on from what might be the game’s most sensitive and fragile signal-caller.

Carson Wentz is probably going to remain in Philly for the 2021 NFL season, and you may see the same guy you saw in 2020. Jalen Hurts will still be there, and 11, a man who’s clearly bothered by having to look over his shoulder, won’t be able to function.

Wentz signed a four-year, $128 million extension on June 6th of 2019 after Philly exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie deal during April of that same year. That would keep him under contract through the 2024 season. Now, by a show of hands, how many of you can guarantee that Wentz will still be here in 2024? can you see it now? By the time everything’s said and done, this might wind up being the worst deal Howie has ever written, and that’s saying a mouthful.
