Unnamed Eagles begin to push back against Carson Wentz

Wentz was also criticized for over-targeting tight end Zach Ertz, who set an National Football League single-season record for tight ends with 116 catches.

Foles repeatedly has said he loves the Eagles and Philadelphia, but Carson Wentz is the starter.

Wentz's teammates standing up for him, especially veteran leaders like Brooks and Cox, should go a long way in helping both Wentz and the Eagles to dismiss the report as incorrect.

The incdentive was for the Eagles to make it into the playoffs, with Foles playing 33 percent of the snaps.

Debe ser un conato de vergüenza para los que se equivocan, ese es el problema. "Para la gente que le conviene no fue (gol), eso es así".

"He's had his a- kissed his whole life, and sometimes acts like he's won 10 Super Bowls, when he hasn't played in, let alone won, a playoff game yet", one source told Santoliquito. And Carson Wentz is not. With that in mind, backup quarterback Nick Foles knows his time with the team is likely coming to an end. It also comes with being able to take constructive criticism.

Sources within and outside the Eagles organization paint Wentz as a complex personality who, while "incredibly hard-working" and "intelligent", is seen in the team's locker room as "selfish", "uncompromising", "egotistical", and lacking in accountability, according to the PhillyVoice's Joe Santoliquito. "That's why we play the game, to impact people, to create an atmosphere".

With the Eagles building their team around Wentz for the future, the expectation is that multiple teams will have interest in adding Foles this offseason. He needs to realize it's the Philadelphia Eagles not the Philadelphia Carsons.

With offensive coordinator Frank Reich leaving the team to become the Indianapolis Colts' head coach and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo taking the OC role with the Minnesota Vikings, the offence struggled under Groh, who was promoted from wide receivers coach. Probably not. If nothing else, however, these are things that the team and Wentz may need to hear and to heed in order to get back to the success the team had under Wentz in 2017, before the injury.
