Show highlights include ...
LATEST EAGLES NEWS (READ: LATEST CARSON WENTZ NEWS)
- Biggest takeaways from Nick Sirianni’s press conference.
- Wentz seemingly still wants out despite the Eagles moving on from Doug Pederson. Adam Schefter is (educated) guessing that he’ll be traded.
- Where are we at on the likelihood of a Wentz trade? And why is he still unhappy?
- Even if the Eagles can manage to fix him, is he good enough to help the Eagles seriously contend for a championship once fixed? This is a guy who is 17-21-1 since tearing his ACL in 2017. He was 14-13 before 2020.
Wentz’ PFF Grade/rank by year:
2016 - 69.9 (21st)
2017 - 84.9 (5th)
2018 - 79.4 (14th)
2019 - 76.5 (14th)
2020 - 65.0 (31st)
- Does having a quarterback competition even make sense? What happens if Wentz loses? His value might only go down.
- Does the Matthew Stafford-Jared Goff trade impact what happens with Wentz?
