So is Carson Wentz really leaving his issues behind?

There are times when it’s easy to state that the Philadelphia Eagles have some of the smartest fans in sports. There are other times when it’s hard to argue that to be true. There are also times when it’s excruciatingly painful to try and figure out what this team’s fans are thinking.

Let this sink in for a second. Zach Ertz has done everything this franchise has asked of him, including bailing the organization out a couple of times by allowing Howie Roseman to rework his deal. All he wanted in return was to be taken care of when his number came up.

Howie chose to do him wrong instead, just like Howie was a part of doing both Duce Staley and Malcolm Jenkins wrong. Many of you that identify as Eagles fans have gone the route of insulting Ertz and Duce though. Come on. Do you really believe the latter couldn’t have done as good a job as Nick Sirianni? You do remember that he was hired largely because he knew Frank Reich and it was believed that he could help salvage 11, don’t you?

Better yet, do you really believe a change of scenery means you’re going to see that same Carson Wentz from 2017 again? It didn’t work for Robert Griffith III, another talented guy who got hurt. if you’ll remember, RG3 was never the same after his injury and was also difficult to coach, but hey, maybe things will be different for Wentz.
