Carson Wentz nominated for annual award that Eagles fans can vote on

Vote for Wentz.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Carson Wentz SHOULD be recognized as the NFL MVP, but if the 2017 All-Pro team voting is any indication, he likely won’t be. And that’s dumb. The people voting are clearly way too obsessed with Tom Brady.

If the fans had any say, Wentz would stand a much better chance. Wentz actually won NFL MVP in a FOX Sports fan vote.

Now fans can also vote for Wentz as FedEx Air Player of the Year. That’s not nearly as important as MVP, obviously, but it’d still be nice to see Wentz get all the recognition he deserves for the season he had in 2017. Plus FedEx will donate $50,000 to the USO in Wentz’s name.

Wentz is going up against Brady and Alex Smith. The second-year quarterback had more touchdown passes than both of those players despite the fact Wentz got hurt in Week 14. Wentz’s numbers would’ve been even better if he finished the season healthy. It’s also worth mentioning that he missed some playing time at the end of a few games due to the Eagles being up by so many points.
