Here’s why the Carson Wentz MVP hype is legit

New, comments

Great breakdown on No. 11

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

I can’t get over the fact that Carson Wentz is currently the odds-on favorite to be the NFL MVP this year. You have to go all the back to Norm Van Brocklin in 1960 to find the last time a Philadelphia Eagles player was named MVP by the Associated Press. It just feels like it’s been way too long since the Eagles had a quarterback playing this well.

Thankfully, Philadelphia’s current quarterback is the real deal. Carson Wentz baby, he’s our baby, he’s it baby.

Our friend Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) of Houston Texans SB Nation site Battle Red Blog put together a great film breakdown on Wentz. You can watch it below (click here if you can’t see the video).

Carson Wentz is playing like the NFL MVP

Carson Wentz is truly playing like the NFL MVP

From the video:

I love Alex Smith, and Kareem Hunt, and Tom Brady, and Todd Gurley, and whoever else you want to throw into the discussion. But to me, the NFL MVP right now is Carson Wentz.

The Eagles are 5-1 because of what he’s doing on third down this season and because of the magnitude of his talent. He’s elevating this franchise beyond any level that they’ve been at since Donovan McNabb was in his prime.
