It’s funny sometimes how people don’t realize what’s wrong with their ways until it’s too late. Washington captain Carson Wentz finally admitted he could have done a better job during his time in Philadelphia. It wasn’t just about what he did on the field, it was more about him as a teammate and a person in the locker room.
“There are always things to look forward to and [think]Oh man, I could have done better here. I could have been better as a person and as a teammate. [There are] He said a lot of things you don’t take for granted. “And so I think I definitely thank God for the experiences I’ve had even though sometimes it’s dark or sometimes not what I had envisioned. But I think it has allowed me to grow as a person, and I’m grateful for that.”
Wentz joined his third team in three years off the season when he was traded from Indianapolis to Washington for multiple draft picks. The 29-year-old QB failed in his first two NFL stops for the same reasons. And let’s not forget that Wentz was part of the Eagles that won their first Super Bowl in 2017 – despite being injured and not playing in the post-season – so his first game against them was on Sunday. You will be emotional.
But Wentz’s flaws overshadowed any level of success he had. The lack of leadership skills and what is described as abrasive personality is what essentially drove Wentz to the block trade in successive seasons. With the Eagles, it was a long time ago when he was finally dealt with after the 2020 campaign. Some of the same issues resurfaced during his time with the Colts.
The pony owner was Jim Irsai Enough After one season and couldn’t wait to ship Wentz away. In the eyes of many, Carson has his last chance to prove he can lead a franchise in Washington. It looks like he’s finally ready to recognize and admit the mistake he’s done in the past.
At Philly and Indy, Wentz wasn’t a bad player. Wentz was good and he had moments where he looked great. But he wasn’t good enough, and his squads weren’t so successful that his bad attitude was overlooked. If you’re going to be an idiot, you have to win. I don’t excuse this behavior, but we know how professional sports work. Wentz has never been very good and many people have gotten his behavior wrong.
So far, the leaders are 1-1 with Wentz averaging 27.5 points per game. By two games, Wentz ranks second in the league in passing yards and yards per game. He will go into his biggest test yet as captain in Week 3 against his former team, Philadelphia. Therefore, any cracks in Wentz’s shield could begin to appear (again) facing the team that drafted him in 2016.
Hopefully Wentz is honest about the growth he seems to have experienced over the past couple of years. That’s probably last stand to Wentz as a novice if it doesn’t work out in the nation’s capital. He’ll have a place in the league, but will likely be a backup if he slips with the leaders.
