Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles have yet to regain their dominant form through 10 weeks into the 2020 NFL season. Their struggles are not looking to end soon after they suffered yet another loss at the hands of their lowly division rivals in the New York Giants via a 27-17 defeat in Week 10 action.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz eventually took matters into his own hands and addressed the team in one of their post-practice huddles in the past week regarding their recent performances and their mindset moving forward. Wentz recently appeared on the Eagles Insider Podcast and had the following to say:
“Obviously, coming off a loss there are a lot of different things going on outside this building, I just wanted to remind everybody to stay together in this building. Just keep believing. Put everything behind us. I’m excited for this last half of the season and I know everybody else is. For me, it was simply reminding everybody like, hey, I still believe in them, they still believe in me, and let’s put everything else behind us and keep that (noise) outside the building and take care of what’s in this building and take care of each other and hopefully good things happen.”
The former North Dakota State product was at the center of the team’s struggles as he played inefficiently under center. He threw for 208 yards on 21-of-37 completions and was sacked three times in the loss to the Giants.
His weapons also failed to get their groove going as tight end Richard Rodgers already led the team with a meager tally of 60 receiving yards on four receptions while rookie wideout Jalen Reagor added 47 yards on four catches.
Despite their on-field struggles, the Eagles still find themselves on top of the dreadful NFC East division with a 3-5-1 record heading into the latter stages of the season. Hopefully, Carson Wentz’s fiery speech could motivate the entire Eagles squad as they match up and aim to steal a win against the Cleveland Browns in Week 11 proceedings.
