With the Philadelphia Eagles firing Doug Pederson, the company appears to be hoping that a brand-new head coach can “fix” Carson Wentz.
The truth is that Carson Wentz requires to play a huge part in fixing Carson Wentz. Its naive to think a brand-new head coach will make all the distinction if the 28-year-old quarterback doesnt show more open to coaching.
I know Ive already beaten the “Wentz isnt coachable and thats a huge issue” drum to death. Ive highlighted my conversation with Joe Santoliquito on BGN Radio numerous times by now.
If youre still in denial, though, perhaps some new reporting from the Inquirers Jeff McLane will finally alter your mind. McLane shared some really informative details relating to Wentzs struggles and how the Eagles have actually coddled him too much. Its seriously a must-read column however Ill share some highlights and reactions here:
Wentzs Type-A character might be credited simply as much for his previous success. Lots of leading quarterbacks share the same trait. The 28-year-old had actually increasingly rebuffed advice, defied criticism, and clashed with former coach Doug Pederson last season, Eagles sources said. “Every fantastic quarterback wants to be coached and they want to be coached difficult and by the best, and it does not appear like [Wentz] desires that,” one source stated. “Its sort of like whoevers coaching him is working for him. However it cant be that way.”
Yep. Weve all found out about how Wentz didnt like being coached hard by John DeFilippo despite his success under him.
In the quarterback room, when his errors were explained, Wentz would in some cases make unimportant reasons and Taylor would not fix him. There would be a play when he didnt toss to an open receiver. The read was drawn up as developed, the coverage played out as expected, and he would be asked why he didnt shoot. And Wentz would say the look wasnt there, or he would overstate the pass rush, and when it was recommended the play be run again in practice as to get it right, he would object.
Weve been saying for some time now that Wentzs relationship with his quarterbacks coach is too buddy-buddy.
There was a detach even before Wentz was benched, though. Pederson would call a play only for his quarterback to periodically kill it for no other reason than his personal distaste, sources stated. It ended up being “a pissing match” in between the 2, another source stated. […] Pedersons play-calling was likewise suspicious. He would go long stretches without rolling Wentz out of the pocket to take advantage of his ability to toss on the relocation. Wentz, in turn, made “unusual eliminates that made no sense and efficiently was going rogue,” one source said.
I suggest, this is simply directly insubordination. And it lines up with what Ive formerly stated about Wentz having a great deal of power (read: too much) in this offense. 2020s struggles can barely be pinned on Pederson alone.
Wentz isnt entirely accountable for the Eagles ineptitude, either. Hes definitely been stopped working by the company in particular aspects. Wentz himself has certainly played a major part in his own and, subsequently, the Eagles downfall.
And one can just think that details came from Wentzs camp considering its not like the team gains utilize from their quarterback desiring out. It just does not appear like Wentz is ready to admit that hes been a huge part of the issue.
A new beginning for Wentz and the Eagles may truly be whats best for both sides at this moment. Naturally, all that money Jeffrey Lurie owes him does not make it easy for the team to proceed.
The existing vibrant just doesnt appear tenable. The Eagles cant continue to accommodate Wentz the way they have so far.
