There is no surprise that Carson Wentz has not played to the caliber we’ve seen his first 4 seasons. The fanbase has been rumbling about what they've seen on the field and all the turnovers. NFL history has seen star signal callers with struggles in their careers. I have five examples below detailing other star quarterbacks have had rough first halves.
Carson Wentz (2020- 28)- 3-4-1
Stats through first 8 games: 178-305 58% 1883 yards 12 TD 12 INT 5 RTD 73.2 qb rating
Many people are writing Carson off and yes he has struggled this year, but to deem him as failed and cannot be your star quarterback is preposterous. He needs to cut the turnovers we all know this, but to say him being aggressive always leads to turnovers does not add up to who he is as a player. His previous 3 seasons he had only 7 INT in each of those years. This second half of the year is big and I expect to see the Carson we are used to seeing.
We Have Seen This Before From Other Elite NFL Quarterbacks.
Peyton Manning (2002-26)- 4-4
Stats through first 8 games: 207-308 67% 2125 yards 14 TD
