The decline of the Eagles since winning the Super Bowl after the 2017 season has also matched the puzzling regression of QB Carson Wentz. The former No. 2 pick has gone from playing at an MVP level to leading the league in interceptions. If it was one thing, it would be fixed by now, but the reasons behind Wentz’s fall are complicated. Both he, the coaching staff and the team around him share in the blame.
“Their reality is the team around Carson isn’t nearly as good as it used to be,” a current NFL scout told FanSided’s Matt Lombardo. “Their offensive line has been decimated by injuries, their wide receiving corps is banged up, and the running game just isn’t there from week to week. He’s definitely part of the issue and his decision-making is worse than ever, but all that goes hand-in-hand.”
