Carson Wentz has just accomplished something so special, no one else has ever done it

And they said he stunk

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

With the conclusion of the playoff-clinching victory over the New York Giants, Carson Wentz became just the 27th quarterback to accomplish something very special.

Carson threw for more than 4000 yards. This has happened just 181 times in the history of the NFL.

He also threw for more than 25 touchdowns. This has happened just 141 times.

He also threw less than 10 interceptions. This has happened just 32 times.

He also won 9 games for his team. This has happened just 27 times.

Here are the other quarterbacks who have accomplished all this, per pro-football-reference’s awesome play index finder:

  • DeShaun Watson
  • Tom Brady
  • Phillip Rivers x2
  • Alex Smith
  • Matthew Stafford
  • Aaron Rodgers x5
  • Matt Ryan
  • Tom Brady x4
  • Russell Wilson
  • Ben Roethlisberger
  • Peyton Manning x4
  • Brett Favre
  • Tony Romo
  • Rich Gannon
  • John Elway

Regardless of why you’re being grouped with them, that’s one heck of a list. Shout out to Gannon and Elway for doing things that seemed impossible at the time. Speaking of impossible...

He also didn’t have a pass catcher break 950 yds. This has never happened. Ever. Patrick Mahomes has never done this. Dak Prescott has never done this. Tom Brady has never done this. Sean McVay has never coached someone to do this. Carson Wentz did this.

Please for the love of God stop saying that Wentz is not a good quarterback or leader or needs to be replaced by Nick Foles. Also, let’s maybe not rush to fire Mike Groh or Press Taylor. Next week, we get to see how Wentz does in the playoffs, but for now, sit back, relax, and come to the reality that you’ve just watched history be made, Eagles fans!
