Anonymous Eagles Players Rip Carson Wentz For His Huge Ego And Lack Of Accountability

Following the Eagles 20-14 heartbreaking loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Divisional Round two weeks ago, the Eagles front office wasted no time appointing Carson Wentz their starting quarterback moving forward, seemingly ending Nick Foles’ tenure with he team.

A decision Doug Pederson called a ‘no-brainer’ but apparently the locker room feels differently.

Joseph Santoliquito of PhillyVoice.com published a potential explosive article that contains quotes from “more than half dozen players, plus other sources close to to the team,” about Carson Wentz and a lot of it was negative.

Here’s what Santoliquito wrote about the Eagles’ apparently explosive situation:

His aw-shucks, overgrown-Opie-from-Mayberry routine plays well with the local and national media. 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.”

…. The glaring difference is that Foles, every source stated, would go through progressions within the offense — exactly how it was designed to run — and hit the open receiver, regardless of who it was or where they were on the field. Wentz only saw, it seemed, one receiver the majority of the season: Zach Ertz. This understandably frustrated the rest of the offense, considering other receivers were open downfield. To stop the Eagles in 2018 under Wentz was rather easy: Stop No. 86.”

Carson Wentz’s 2017 ended with a back injury as Nick Foles led the team to a playoff berth and a win in Chicago during Wild Card Weekend. Much of the question marks surrounding Wentz involve his playing-style and the impact it’s having on his body as the injury history continues to pile up.

The article suggests that former offensive coordinator Frank Reich and former quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo were able to steer Wentz the right way, but that Wentz “bullied” offensive coordinator Mike Groh in 2018:

Groh is a “good coach,” who was “bullied” by Wentz, according to sources. The problem with the offense this past season shouldn’t lie with Groh, it should “lie with Wentz,” they said.

Following the release of the article, Eagles defensive star Fletcher Cox took to Twitter to dismiss the article:
