When a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles loses a $20 million dollar contract over a year into their deal, it would be understandable if he wanted to hold everyone involved accountable: the organization, the fans, the media, and especially the other players on the team.
Carson Wentz’s former Eagles teammate has stuck up for the quarterback following an end to the 2019 regular season that saw the Eagles finish with a 2-14 record. Nick Foles, who was the Eagles starting quarterback in 2017, had a forgettable year in 2018 when he was traded to the Rams in the middle of the season.
Throughout his short career Carson Wentz has been involved in a number of controversies. From his weight issues to his criticism of his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, his teammates have come out to show their support for the former quarterback. Today that support continues, as former Eagles teammate Jason Kelce has released an Instagram post on the matter.
After a nightmarish 2020 season in which the Philadelphia Eagles finished 4-11-1 and found themselves at the bottom of the pathetic NFC East, fans and reporters alike were quick to point the finger at Carson Wentz. This is not necessarily a misunderstanding. Wentz had his worst year as a pro in 2020 and was certainly one of the worst quarterbacks in the entire NFL. But Philadelphia’s big problems last season went far beyond the man in the middle. The Eagles had holes all over the 53-man roster, and their problems could be traced back to the totem pole of the front office. Jason Kelce, who knows the organization inside out as a 10-year veteran who passed the ball to Wentz for five seasons, recently came to the defense of his former quarterback. Kelce even admitted that he thinks Wentz can thrive on a new team with the pressure off Philadelphia.
Carson Wentz’s disastrous season in 2020
Jason Kelce and Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrate after scoring a touchdown | Mitchell Leff/Getty Images COMPARED TO: The Eagles have convinced their old enemy to give up their loyalty for a new mission It’s no secret that Wentz lost all of his confidence last season. Before 2020, the former Pro Bowler was considered a top-10 QB in the league, but based on last year’s results, he’s more of a bottom-10 player. In 12 starts before being replaced by Jalen Harts, Wentz led the Eagles to a 3-8-1 record and threw 15 interceptions, an NFL record. He recorded his lowest completion rate (57.4%), passing yards (2,620), touchdowns (16) and QBR (49.6). His 72.8 rating was the second worst in the league among qualified QBs. Wentz was great. There is no other solution. But the Eagles’ 4-11-1 record is due to many other factors. Just ask your long established center.
Jason Kelce replaced by Wentz
. COMPARED TO: Carson Wentz haters crack Colts coach Frank Reich: I am sure we have chosen the right player Kelce was Wentz’s primary snapper and right-hander for the first five seasons of his NFL career. He knew better than anyone when to blame Wentz and when to blame someone else. The long time Eagles center recently sat down with Angelo Cataldi on the 94 WIP morning show and defended his former teammate. I don’t want to speak for Carson, obviously, first of all, it was a terrible year and I think when you have a bad season like that, unfortunately, there’s going to be people pointing fingers and that’s what you go through in any bad season, Kelce said. Jobs come at risk, people no longer see themselves as the cause of the loss, so it’s not me, it’s that guy, that guy, that guy, so it ruins relationships, and I think the reality is that if you go 4-11, everybody shares some of the blame, everybody fucked up. Kels went on to say that Wentz knows he didn’t play at his best last season, but the frustration that comes with a lost season can exacerbate mistakes. Carson was the first to tell me – and he’ll tell you – that he didn’t play well last year and he knows he needs to get better, and when people get fired and players’ livelihoods are on the line, those relationships can sour very quickly.
Kels thinks Wentz will do well with the Colts
COMPARED TO: Former Packers coach Mike Holmgren makes a startling prediction about Aaron Rodgers’ future in Green Bay Many believe the 2020 season has broken Wentz beyond recognition, but Kels is confident he can return to his 2017 MVP form. I still like Carson, I have a lot of respect for him, Kels said. Of course, the way it ended wasn’t ideal, but I think he’ll do well in Indianapolis. They have a good offensive line, they have good people he’s had success with before, and Frank Reich, if you look at the quarterbacks he’s worked with, finds a way to make the most of the position.
