Carson Wentz to Colts

In the 2017 NFL season Carson Wentz was playing great with the Philadelphia Eagles. As a starter the Eagles went 11-2 that year. Wentz had 33 passing touchdowns, and was selected to the Pro Bowl. He also finished in third place in the NFL MVP voting. Even though Wentz got injured and did not get a chance to play in the playoffs in the 2017 season, the Eagles won their first Super Bowl. The Eagles future looked very promising. Wentz was the future for this team as their next franchise quarterback. But the 2020 season was a disaster for the Eagles and Wentz. Wentz was benched after going 3-8-1. His 15 interceptions led the league. This was really Carson’s only bad season, and the Eagles were already looking towards other options. They turned to Jalen Hurts, who is a talented young quarterback. It did not seem like Wentz was happy with being a backup. So the Eagles traded him to the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts needed a new quarterback because Philip Rivers had just retired. Indianapolis gave the Eagles two draft picks to acquire Wentz. So the Colts did not lose much at all to get Carson. This will be a fresh start for Wentz. He now has the chance to prove that he can be the Colts next franchise quarterback. I think that Indianapolis made a wise decision to trade for Carson. Last season the Colts went 11-5 with Philip Rivers as their starting quarterback. They have a really good offensive line, and they have one of the best defenses in the league. I think that Indianapolis will make the playoffs this upcoming season, and Carson Wentz will play well. As for Philadelphia I think that they could have given Wentz another chance. But Jalen Hurts looked good last season, and he could be the next Eagles franchise quarterback. Only time will tell.

  1. Wentz to the Colts is a big trade. I think this trade will benefit the Colts because I think they have the pieces for Carson to be successful again. I personally don’t think Hurts is an NFL style QB but time will tell. Also, the Eagles roster needs to get reshaped for Hurts to be successful.

  2. This was huge news for the Colts. I enjoyed your first post and it had a lot of information that I found interesting. That made it very easy and fun to read. I am curious to see if Wentz can make a comeback but I personally think he is too injury-prone.

  3. Talk about an opportunity for Wentz. The pressure has got to be almost unbearable (you would think). Maybe he will get his head straight and calm the nerves to go back to being the success that he had once before. Interesting read, I don’t follow sports as much as the next guy but I am a football fan. Good post.
