Eagles QBs coach: Carson Wentz a work in progress

The Eagles quarterbacks coach likes what he has seen from Carson Wentz, but John DeFilippo makes it clear the second-year quarterback has a long way to go.

“No quarterback is ever a finished product — ever,” DeFilippo said, via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Daily News. “Every day is a new day, especially with a young quarterback. We take it day by day with him, and he’s going to have some good days, and he’s going to have some bad days.

“This year coming up he’s probably not going to play great in all 16 games, but I guarantee you he’s going to play good in the majority of them.”

Wentz has worked on his mechanics this offseason, tightening his motion to eliminate “wasted motion.” He worked with personal quarterbacks coach Adam Dedeaux for 10 days in February.

In his rookie season, Wentz went 7-9. He threw for 3,782 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

    It will be an interesting year. Saw Wentz develop a pronounced Tebow-esque chicken wing arm motion that was disturbing. Hope the 10 days with the QB guru did wonders.

    @chickenrondelet

    I agree that Wentz’s release needed tightening, but to call it Tebow-esque is an exaggeration.

    We can produce pictures of any quarterback poised to throw — including Manning, Favre, Marino, — with their elbow pointing backwards and the ball horizontal. It doesn’t mean their release was as slow as Tebow’s. It’s more indicative of how far they’re about to throw.
