Carson Wentz facing criticism from Eagles…

The Philadelphia Eagles have almost reached the midway point of the 2019 NFL season, and that means its anonymous quote time around the NovaCare Complex.

Last season Wentz dealt with rumors questioning his character and his ability to lead the Eagles after the Philly Voice released a scathing piece that was critical of Carson as a leader and teammate.

Now, one day after ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that an anonymous Eagles player was upset with Howie Roseman for not pulling the trigger on a deal for Jalen Ramsey, the veteran reporter has now come out with quotes from an Eagles’ source, who’s not happy with the Eagles star always chasing the big play.

On Thursday afternoon, Anderson appeared on NFL Live and shared a quote from her Eagles who ripped Wentz and the Philadelphia offensive approach as a whole.

“We need to make bleep simpler the source said via 94WIP. Sometimes we need to just handle what is manageable. Even Peyton Manning knew when to check it down. Carson Wentz right now is 38-percent on passes that travel 15 air yards, has three interceptions on passes like that, which is tied for most in the league. He also has 148 passes on those that are 10 yards or fewer, right now he has nine touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes like that so I do think it is an apt point.”

The Eagles are one of the top teams in the NFL on third down, and Wentz was recently ranked as the highest-graded quarterback in the NFL, despite Philadelphia leading the NFL in dropped passes.

He’s among the highest-rated passers in football with over 100 or more dropbacks this season, and through six weeks, Carson Wentz is PFF’s second highest-graded quarterback at 90.6 (one-tenth behind Seattle’s Russell Wilson). Wentz leads the NFL in negative plays and is one of the elites in the league at making big-time throws (6.1 percent rate, seventh of 32).

If Carson Wentz truly is trying to do too much, then you can only imagine what state the Eagles offense would be in if the star signal-caller was simply going through the motions are not as engaged as he should be.

The anonymous quotes are ridiculous and the claims make no sense, considering the help Wentz’s teammates have provided.

Is Carson Wentz doing too much?
