Report: Carson Wentz Described as 'Selfish'; QB Fails 'To Take Accountability'

TIMOTHY RAPP
JANUARY 21, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles have committed to Carson Wentz as the franchise quarterback of the future, despite the success of Nick Foles in the past two seasons.

It's a decision that may not sit well with some of his teammates.

According to a report from Joseph Santoliquito of PhillyVoice.com, several unnamed Eagles were critical of Wentz and his personality:

"Indeed, sources describe Wentz as 'incredibly hard working,' 'determined,' and 'highly intelligent.' But the true Wentz is more nuanced and complicated, with sources describing him as 'selfish,' 'uncompromising,' 'egotistical,' one who plays 'favorites' and doesn't like to be 'questioned,' one who needs to 'practice what he preaches' and fails 'to take accountability.'

Eagles players of course came out and denied this... which is exactly what you would expect. Interesting report though. Considering how Foles went 4-1 in the playoffs that 1 was very nearly a W, they have a very tough decision to make. The guy who won it for you, or the guy who is younger and more talented?

I probably lean Wentz, but this is a tough decision

Torrey Smith doesn’t even play for the Eagles anymore and denied it. If y’all knew what the Philly Voice was you wouldn’t be running with this. Reminds me of the DeSean Jackson is a gangbanger storyline that was obviously incorrect.

oh and wentz targeted Ertz 26% of the time, Foles targeted him 24% of the time. So again, the story is unsourced for a reason and is coming out of a pub that usually champions left wing social issues, not where Philadelphia gets its sports news.

I knew he was an *******. A Eagle fan at work told me that Wentz was light years ahead of Patrick Mahomes and was on a different level. (Just last week) He also said he heard that Wentz has a great personality. We took a poll of a few football fans at work that same day and it ended up being 40-1 in favor of Mahomes. lol

“Unnamed Eagles” is just a cowardly way of stirring the pot....by either the media or those “unnamed” players. 

As long as the media uses “unarmed sources” then there is no way of telling what is a lie and what is the truth 

Buzzfeed learned this lesson the hard way

Eagles would be stupid to keep benching Foles for Wentz. I mean what else does Foles have to do to get a starting job in Philly?

Never once has our QB been called out by his own players. He may not be Manning, he sure isn't Brady, **** Rodgers and Brees. But he's our QB. And I can live with that.

He needs to win when there are expectations on him.  Foles is great when he is playing with house money and no one expects a win, but has never been great when he is the guy and pressure for success relies on him.  He's a good QB just don't think he is "playoff" Foles normally when the expectations for him to perform are there.

Wentz is the Big Ben of the eagles

In what way exactly?  Wentz is literally a choir boy, this rumor was shot down by all team leaders and couldn't be more false of his character outside of him maybe being very confident in his own ability to succeed.

of course we are, but those of us with more tenure get more than those with less. :ninja:  You do realize that's the purpose of that 'who's been here the longest' thread from last week, right? that was just to help with the upcoming end of football year raises and bonuses....and of course the cuts

:ninja:B)
