Carson Wentz out as QB for rest of season

Posted December 13, 2017

It would come as no surprise if the stadium were filled with Eagles fans given the proximity of the two teams, as well as the respective records this season.

The Eagles clinched their first division title since 2013.

Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson stood at the podium back at team headquarters Monday at noon and delivered the worst news possible, that franchise quarterback Carson Wentz had torn his left ACL on Sunday against the Rams and would be out for the rest of the season. "But at the same time, it's been the next-man-up mentality, and that's how we approach it". It hasn't even been a full season, but if he continues to make this kind of impact for Los Angeles on offense as a reliable weapon for Goff to work with, Kupp is going to turn into one of the biggest steals from this year's draft class, and will most likely only get better with experience.

LOS ANGELES, CA - DECEMBER 10: Carson Wentz #11 of the Philadelphia Eagles is hit by Mark Barron #26 of the Los Angeles Rams during the third quarter of the game. We overcame our running back.

"The two weeks that we had [at the end of the regular season] were valuable to me, because we could put more emphasis on a few things that we wouldn't have put emphasis on with Phil Simms", Parcells said. I mean, this is, this has been a resilient football team all season long. "You never really know what's going to happen, but I didn't feel like he was going to hold us back in any way".

Despite Kaepernick's controversial position in the National Football League world, many Philadelphia fans immediately considered the former 49ers signal caller as a solid player to bring in after the loss of Wentz. It's been 17 years since Baltimore Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer rode the coattails of Ray Lewis and Jamal Lewis toward a Super Bowl title, and it's been 15 since Brad Johnson played second fiddle to the Tampa 2 scheme that won coach Jon Gruden his first and only Super Bowl title.

Pederson insisted the offence won't change with Foles.

"It sure can, heck yeah", Pederson said.

I know I will be cheering for him! Pederson said he hasn't spoken to personnel boss Howie Roseman about adding a third quarterback yet.
