Carson Wentz: I’m preparing the same way as always

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz‘s play this season has led to questions for head coach Doug Pederson about whether he’s considered making a change at the position.

It has not led to any conversation between Wentz and Pederson about the possibility of a change, however. Wentz said at his Wednesday press conference that he has not had any talk with Pederson regarding his job being on the line.

“We haven’t really had that conversation. Quite frankly, I’m preparing the same. I’m approaching the week, attacking the week, and going to do everything I can to get ready for Monday night, Wentz said.

Wentz also said that he doesn’t think those outside the team will see “anything drastic” change on offense, but that there have been some internal changes made in hopes of pushing things in a better direction.

If those subtle moves don’t pay off against Seattle, Pederson will likely field more questions about more sweeping changes to the unit.

  1. “Quite frankly, I’m preparing the same…”

    Maybe change up your approach, seems like “the same” isn’t cutting it.

  2. Just trying to get him right enough so that Indy will still be willing to trade for him. Eagles will actually save $ on the cap if they trade (not cut) him in 2021.

  3. That should work, you know what they say, doing the same thing over and over is the best way to get different results!

  4. Dude, maybe you should stop training and practising the same because the results are horrid. I remember when Michael Lombardi said that Peterson is a horrible hire and not a good coach. The team won the Super Bowl that year and Lombardi got roasted. Frank leaves for Indy and where are the Eagles now with just Peterson…in the dumpster where they belong. They suck at every level in that organization. Dump Wentz, Peterson and get a new GM too. Total failures.

    I doubt this makes Eagles fans very happy since Wentz is in denial about his play, and consequently that of the offense, is abysmal. After this presser, expect more of the same–lots of turnovers and sacks and general awful play by their $100M+ QB.

  6. Carson Wentz has to leave Philadelphia if he wants to save his career and live up to his full abilities and draft selection. Nick Foles winning that SuperBowl was the beginning of the end.

    He doesn’t trust his Oline, he doesn’t have the weapons, he’s not in the right scheme and he reads every comment in the Philadelphia newspapers and hears every comment said about him on Philadelphia sports talk radio.

    He’s talented and still capable but it won’t happen for him in that city

  7. I threw 3 interceptions at practice, got sacked 7 times, held on to the ball way to long and fumbled 4 times. Ready for Monday night…

  8. Hey Carson. Just a word of advice. You might want to change up a little on the way you prepare because what you were doing obviously hasn’t been working lately.

  9. This week is the final test — If Wentz can’t succeed against the worst pass defense in the league, AKA the Seattle Seahawks, then he’s not going to beat anyone.

  10. Everybody is missing the obvious here ,Zack Ertz made Wentz and Zac is out of the lineup resting for free agency !

  11. The definition of insanity…and the result will be the same. If they didn’t still have a shot at winning that God-awful NFC East,maybe Jalen Hurts could be given a chance to start.

  12. He seems to have a fatal blind spot: always “attacking” his job, working as hard as he can, always unflinchingly forging ahead, and never wanting to appear in doubt.

    I can’t blame him for reacting this way. But if that’s really the way he is — and that does seem to be the case — then he’s not only pressing *on* the field, he’s pressing off the field, too.

    And if that’s his approach to preparation, he’s losing valuable off-the-field opportunities to take a step back and reflect.

    If he doesn’t he’ll never figure out why he has regressed so much.

    He’s a great kid, in dead earnest about his job, and not deserving of the hate he’s getting. But he should know better than to simply say “all systems go, same as it ever was.”

  13. This week is the final test — If Wentz can’t succeed against the worst pass defense in the league, AKA the Seattle Seahawks, then he’s not going to beat anyone.

    —-

    Even if Wentz does well, he may not score more than Seattle, and still lose. The Seattle defense is bad, but their offence is great and Philly may not be able to slow them down.

  14. definition of Insantiy..

    Doing the same thing repeatedly, and expecting different results..

    Wentz is Insane.

  15. The Way you slow down the Seahawks offense is keeping them off the field, meaning Dumb Dumb Doug needs to Run the ball. He was up 17-0 against Washington did not get up to 20 carries, could not beat the Bungles who ran it less then 20 times, and lost 2 other games because of his own foolishness running it less then 20 times. Why are the Browns 7-3 they run the ball. Passing it a league low 44 percent of the time.

  16. You can’t fool me…….I know you guys are changing up things in an attempt to fool the Seahawks and win. The Seahawks better prepare for a charged up team, desperate to win and willing to take more chances. In fact, prepare for onside kicks, fake punts, going for it on 4th and long, etc…..staying the course is not the answer & everyone knows it.

    **********

    If you need to run because you can’t trust your qb to throw than your not going to win any games also eagles ran the ball all half and scored zero points the first half you can’t win scoring zero points

  18. You run the ball to set up the pass. When you’re RB is second in the league in yards per carry you probably should give him the ball more than 5 times in the second half. The only reason they had 0 points is because they fumbled on the 4 yard line. Then idiot Pederson decides to throw the ball 60% of the plays…………in the rain. The Eagles will be awful until Pederson is fired or they get someone who can actually call plays.
