Sometimes it’s funny how people don’t notice errors in their own way until it’s too late. Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz finally admits he could have done better in Philadelphia. It was about him as a person in the room.
“There is always something to look back on, [think], man, I could have been better here. I could have been better as a person, as a teammate. [There are] A lot of things you take for granted,” he said. “So I think I thank God for what I went through, even if it was dark at times and not what I envisioned. I think it did, and I’m grateful for that.”
Wentz joined the team for the third time in three years in the offseason when he was traded from Indianapolis to Washington for multiple draft picks. The 29-year-old’s QB fumbled in his two stops in his first in the NFL largely for the same reason. And remember, Wentz was part of the Eagles team that won his first Super Bowl in 2017. He was injured and did not appear in the postseason. Be emotional.
But Wentz’s shortcomings have overshadowed any level of success he has achieved. His lack of leadership skills and what has been described as an abrasive personality is largely why Wentz has landed in his block in the trade in consecutive offseasons. The Eagles have long waited for him to finally be disposed of following his 2020 campaign. During his time with the Colts, some of the same issues resurfaced.
Colts owner Jim Irsay enough After one season, I couldn’t wait to ship the Wentz. From the perspective of many, Carson is the last chance to prove he can lead a franchise in Washington. He seems ready to acknowledge and admit the mistakes he made in the past.
At Philadelphia and Indy, Wentz was not a bad player. Wentz is great and there were moments when he looked great. But he wasn’t good enough and his team wasn’t very successful, so his shitty attitude went unnoticed. I’m not condoning that behavior, but we know how professional sports work. I have misled people.
So far, the Commanders are one-on-one with Wentz, averaging 27.5 points per game. Through two games, Wentz ranks second in the league in passing yards and yards per game. He will have his biggest test to date as a manager in Week 3 against his former team, Philadelphia. So, cracks may start to appear (again) in Wentz’s armor when facing the team that drafted him in 2016.
Hopefully, Wentz is staying true to the growth he seems to have experienced over the past few years.this is probably last stand Wentz as a starter if things don’t work out in the country’s capital. He’ll do well in the league, but he’ll be a backup in case he’s mistaken for a commander.
