34. Wentz Did it All Go Wrong?
Carson Wentz had an incredibly bad 2020. Eventually, Eagles head coach Doug Pedersen benched the mega-money quarterback for Jalen Hurts. They first benched him in the third quarter of a game against the Packers which saw him complete just six of 15 pass attempts for 79 yards. Furthermore, he had led the league in interceptions and incomplete passes at that point.
Jake Ellis became a Wentz fan when he watched the QB play for NDSU. He was disappointed but still had faith in the Super Bowl champion. He said, “People that don’t know football probably think he was a blowout in the end. But people that know football know that it’s not just him.” In the end, it didn’t matter much because the Eagles traded him to the Indianapolis Colts at the end of the season.
