Re: Welcome Carson Wentz
 
I remember someone described Wentz as...'a passenger on the bus, not the driver."
In games Wentz does not look like he is having fun. Since Wentz's injuries, he never regained his on the field poise and skill. In the limited time I have watch him play he looks uncomfortable on the field and makes mistakes.
Kind of like RGIII after he tore his knee, something changed. A light went out.

Injury History from Draft Sharks
Oct 17, 2015, Hand Wrist Fracture - Wentz broke a bone in his throwing wrist that required surgery.
Aug 11, 2016, Chest Rib Fracture, Wentz suffered a hairline fracture in his ribs against Tampa Bay.
Dec 10, 2017, ACL and LCL Tear Grade 3 Wentz departed in the 2nd quarter with a torn ACL & LCL. He returned for Week 3 of the 2018 season.
Oct 11, 2018, Back Vertebral Fracture, Exact date of injury is unknown, but Wentz's back trouble dates back to October. He missed the final 3 games of the year but avoided surgery.
Jan 5, 2020, Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1, Carson suffered a concussion in the team's Wild Card playoff loss to the Seahawks in the first quarter.
Jul 29, 2021, Pedal Foot, Wentz injured his foot during Indianapolis' training camp practice. He missed the remainder of the preseason.
Sep 19, 2021, Pedal Ankle (high) Sprain Grade 3, Wentz suffered ankle injuries in the Week 2 game vs. the Rams. He was available for the next game

If RR came out and said yea I been reading the fan forums and I think we will stay put with Taylor because a lot of fans donít like any of the rookie QBs and they hate Trubisky, Wentz, jimmy G , Marriotta.. we whiffed on Wilson and Rogers was never gonna leave GB .
This really was the only move .. I would like to see what Winston gets in a trade ( is he worth our first round pic?) Wentz is a upgrade over Taylor who most of you refer to as noodle arm and some said doesnít belong in the league ..

[quote=skinsfan69;1312330]I will give you Jones. But no he is not better than Hurts. Nope. If he was better than he'd still be an Eagle.[/quote]


And perhaps so would the Philly coach who benched him.

Wentz played with one of the best OLís in football, yet he collapsed the last 3 games Of the season, he basically sucked!! I saw a couple of games and he looked washed up and had a noodle for an arm.

Time will tell if this was a good move. I'm more optimistic than not.

Maybe Wentz hanging around Taylor will help .. If you could combine there strengths you would have a damn good QB !

I had an over season win total of 9.5 for the Colts. All they had to do was beat Jacksonville and I got $500. I proceeded to watch Wentz just fall apart. He couldn't do anything right when they needed him the most. Total choker against the worst team in football. Dude isn't a baller at all.

I agree he has some sort of mental breakdown in games that matter Ö maybe Ron can figure it out

Check that. 3rd rounder and it's McLaurin.

Re: Welcome Carson Wentz
 
[quote=Schneed10;1312335]Now you're just being irrational about the value of 2nd and 3rd rounders. They could be good, they could be complete non contributors, and they could end up as depth guys.

On the layup issue, I agree that's a problem, and ultimately what stops him from being considered anything better than an average starter. At the same time Bridgewater has never thrown for 27 touchdowns. So he might make layups but that's all he makes. Jameis, well he makes half court shots but he also turns the ball over like crazy.

I think you're looking at having to commit more guaranteed money to Teddy and Jameis than you think. There are still teams out there thirsty for QBs. Let's revisit this in a few weeks once those guys have signed. Bet you feel better about not having any guaranteed money committed to Wentz once you see what those guys get on the market.[/quote]

What I'm trying to say is I'd rather have my draft picks and take a chance on getting a free agent- Bridgwater, Trubisky, Winston, Mariota over giving up my picks and getting Wentz. To me Wentz isn't any better than the guys I just listed. If I struck out w/ all of them then I'm going back to Taylor/Allen and I am drafting someone.

That basically assures that they start the season with Heinicke at QB, which would be the ultimate offseason failure.

So you know more about Wentz than Doug P? He benched him for Hurts. Then management decided Hurts was better and traded him after they fired Doug P. Now after a year Indy has passed and traded him to the team that always takes an L on QB trades.

All you had to say was that Wentz lost you money. I'd be mad too, but that's why I don't gamble.
