The relationship between Carson Wentz and former Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson was really bad. So bad, that head coach and quarterback didn’t speak for months during the 2020 NFL season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter spoke on it two’s relationship during an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic:
“There are a lot of things that went wrong,” Schefter said. “We have the team drafting Jalen Hurts. We have Carson feeling jilted by that. We have the team trying to reassure him. We have Carson not getting past that. We have Carson struggling. We have Carson and Doug not talking for weeks on end during the season, where the head coach and quarterback are not talking for eight, nine, 10 weeks.”
The Eagles fired Doug Pederson last month and traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, reuniting him former Philadelphia offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who left to become the Colts’ head coach in 2018.
