Adam Schefter’s report that Carson Wentz may want out of Philadelphia if this current situation remains the same for the 2021 season. The initial story hit twitter timelines Sunday
While questions have persisted about what the Eagles will do with Carson Wentz, the more appropriate question might be what Carson Wentz will do with the Eagles. Sources believe Wentz is not pleased with recent events there.https://t.co/Y0GAX3WqCm— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 20, 2020
Because folks tend to take things and run with them, the narrative became that Carson Wentz is selfish. Doesnt want to compete. And wanted out of Philadelphia. Our own Rob Maaddi, who covers the Eagles for the AP, tried to clear things up with his own reporting
Carson Wentz is invested in Philadelphia/South Jersey communities. It’s not just about him. It’s about family, friends, his AO1 Foundation, his Thy Kingdom Crumb food truck, friendships & relationships. I’m told he doesn’t want out of Philly & he hasn’t told that to anyone.— Rob Maaddi (@RobMaaddi) December 20, 2020
But even then. People didnt want to hear it. The narrative in their head was set. So Adam Schefter joined the morning show Wednesday and broke it down.
“This is all common sense. (Wentz’) is not happy that he’s playing backup. He’s playing the good soldier. He’s being supportive. He’s not publicly complaining. But that doesnt change the way of how he feels. He doesnt want to be a backup quarterback. Who does? And if he wanted to be a backup you’d question the mental makeup of the man himself”
