    Stephen A, now you know we don’t judge MVP probability on would’ve, should’ve and could’ve! If the his receivers don’t catch the ball that’s all part of the game and how you rate them as an MVP candidate or not!

    The Eagles secondary and defense is mostly to blame for losing this year! Wentz has been playing good!

    😂😂😂 Stephen A been around Michael Irvin too long. He starting to sound like him. Somebody hand him a towel.

    Every single team in the NFL, shouldda, couldda or wouldda been better if every mistake, they or the rest of the team, made went right for them. Foles was simply a better fit for the Eagles, because he had no picks in getting the ball where it needed to be for the best results in achieving the main goal. Wentz wants to do things his way, with whom he favors most.

    It’s not a leadership issue completely. The guys on his defense just don’t like how he plays the game .

    What a joke. In what Bizarro world can Wentz be considered MVP material? Like the man says, Wilson carries his entire team.

  • Whiskey Mick

    1st in NFL in dropped passes and nobody can say they would've been tough catches because Wentz's passes were on the money. And now the pass protection is really starting to break down and Wentz is running for his life consistantly on passing downs. Not sure what he can do at this point. Plus there is zero creativity in the play calling. Just a bad situation with the Birds right now.

    Dak has a higher completion percentage and his receivers have 17 drops...

  • Kevin Stone
    Kevin Stone Month ago

    At what point do we stop saying what should be and analyze what is? He's not accurate deep down the field or mid. He's late on a lot of throws which causes the drops. Not playing ELITE at all. My squad my team my analysis.

    How can you compare Chiefs offense to Eagles offense, they are clearly way more explosive than the Eagles lol

    I love it. Before the season all everybody was saying was,” Wentz just has to spread the ball around... Wentz just has to not try to do too much... Wentz just has to be a point guard”. Now Wentz is doing what everybody said he had to do and everybody’s dropping passes, they don’t run the ball, the defense can’t cover a corpse, and it’s wentzs fault for not elevating everybody else!?!???!!?

    U can’t blame Dak one minute and then have this discussion in the next. Not a chance he’s even close to being in the conversation unless half the qb’s in the league are. Dak’s receivers haven’t been good either!!!

    Let's be honest... When it comes to Wentz all I hear are excuses... especially when you compare Wentz to Foles. Stop me if you've heard these before... The offense was called differently for Foles than Wentz, receivers who look good with Foles (won a Superbowl mvp with them) can't catch when Wentz is in the game... The offensive line that didn't give up a bunch of sacks with Foles can't block when Wentz is in the game and gets him hit to much... On and on and on.... Excuses, excuses, excuses... Maybe Wentz is just overrated...

    I wasnt a big fan of Carson Wentz last year but to be fair he was coming off of a injury but at this point of the season I have to say I feel sorry for Wentz because this receiving Corp sucks! Wentz will make a play out of nothing and guys drop the ball or dont get open. Our top receiver is a te whose numbers are a 2nd option wr(not taking anything away from ertz because his numbers are great for a te) our actual number 1 receivers stats are of a non superstar slot receiver(been like that for years now) DJax is beyond injured agholor had one fluke season and other than that we have no one oh besides that one running back who should be a receiver because he catches and runs better than he rushes. Oh and stop talking about leadership because at the end of the day we swore up and down nick was a better leader and last time I checked his career and the eagles season ended on a drop. We'd most likely be 5-1 if it weren't for drops.

    How many drops does Deshaun Watson have? Will Fuller dropped 3 last week and Nuk dropped 1. Yet he found a way to get the ball in the endzone and win. Hes the MVP and Im an Eagles fan from Philly.

    I remember watching the Lions game thinking, if Wentz had any other receiving corps in the league they win by 2 TD's.

    Damien is hypocrite. This is the same guy who sat on Get Up and said that he would rather have Carson Wentz than Dak Prescott, because Carson Wentz can elevate his team and Dak Prescott can't. Now, he's sitting on First Take and saying Carson Wentz doesn't deserve to be in the MVP conversation because he's not elevating his teammates to catch the football. SMH. The media is never consistent with their takes. One analyst will go on one show and say one thing about someone. The same analyst will go on another show and say another thing about someone.

    As an Eagles fan, I completely agree with Stephen A. About everything he says and when Damien compared Carson’s situation to Patrick Mahomes’ last year I couldn’t stand it. I had my Birds going 12:4 but now it looks more like 10:6 and possibly missing the playoffs. Can’t believe how underwhelmed I am with this Eagles team. Carson Wentz is not the problem.
    Key Problems for the Eagles right now (Week 7)
    -Not good pass rush/quarterback pressure
    - inexcusable secondary
    - Dropped passes by wide receivers
