The pressure is fully on Carson Wentz after an atrocious 2020 season. After the quarterback’s clear regression the Eagles decided to take action. Fire Doug Pederson and refresh the entire coaching staff. With the Eagles bringing in Nick Sirianni as Head Coach, hiring Shane Steichen as offensive coordinator, and firing quarterbacks coach Press Taylor; a clear statement was made that the eagles are going all in to fix Carson Wentz. Whether or not Carson buys in or not will be the ultimate question.
With speculation that Carson may be unhappy in Philadelphia, strikes the question if Carson even wants to buy in? The Eagles organization have failed continuously to surround Carson Wentz with weapons to help him succeed. What makes this year any different for Carson beyond a new head coaching staff remains to be seen. New head coach Nick Sirianni is in charge of evaluating Carson to operate his new offensive scheme. Carson’s success will depend on him adjusting to a new system and competing for the position along with Jalen Hurts. Leaders rise under pressure during adversity. The story is being written whether Carson is a true Leader and can handle the circumstances. One thing is for sure, for this to work, Carson must have full buy in.
If Carson fails to buy into the scheme changes, eyes will be directed at the organizational front office. All this may be pure speculation and the team may go in the direction of Jalen Hurts, however Carson should have the first opportunity at starting quarterback. With the price tag of Carson Wentz contract, he deserves a first shot at the starting role in my opinion. Maybe Nick Sirianni is a “No Man” and will tell Carson No and run the team how he feels fit. Regardless, Carson is now under tremendous pressure this year to succeed and it’s completely up to Carson and Nick Sirianni to determine his future.
