The Carson Wentz Era begins in Philadelphia on Sunday and everybody is eager to find out if Wentz is capable of being a star quarterback in the NFL. Will he be able to demonstrate to everybody that he can lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl Title? I see numerous positives for Carson, but I also see quite a few negatives.
He’s 6’5″ and weighs 240 pounds.
He’s got a strong arm.
He played in a NFL style offense in college.
He’s used to making changes of the plays at the line of scrimmage
He learned how to read defenses and defensive coverages.
He’s a fighter, who has great leadership qualities.
He has a great work ethic
He only started for a season and a half in college.
He only stated in his senior year in high school.
He played his college ball at North Dakota State, which is Division 1.
In college, he played with and against players, who were no where near being NFL caliber.
There’s a chance he could be injury-prone. He missed half of his season a year ago with a broken wrist and he had his ribs broken in his only preseason action.
He played only a half of action in the preseason because his ribs were broken in his only preseason action.
He hasn’t had a lot of reps with the Eagles first team offense.
I think the success of failure of Wentz’ teammates to help him will have a major affect on how the rookie plays in this opening game against the Browns. If the Eagles run the ball well, he’ll probably have success with play action passes. If they don’t run the football well, it’s probably going to mean problems for Wentz because he will be asked to throw the ball too often. He will have more pass rush pressure in his face and Cleveland will have great blitz opportunities.
I don’t think the Eagles should throw it more than 20 or 25 times with the youngster. The more often the Birds ask him to drop in the pocket, the more opportunities he has make mistakes. It’s a fact that rookies make mistakes and if you give them the opportunities, they can make a lot of them.
