Carson Wentz suffers a torn ACL and his season is over.
Let’s take a live look at my favorite Eagles fan:
His reactions sum up the extreme of most Eagles fans. “Sucks to suck” huh EDP445? That’s what you said when the Eagles came into Gillette and beat the Pats in 2015. We met at tailgating after the game and you kept saying it “sucks to suck.”
So this means a whole lot for the NFL outlook for the rest of this season and the post season. Obviously we probably won’t be betting on the Eagles again this season. Their season is certainly over and I don’t expect them to win a playoff game this season. It’s too early to look at the match ups but really I can see any team getting in beating them at this point. Yea, Carson Wentz is THAT good of a player. Which leads me to the next topic I’d like to discuss.
The media outside of New England instantly scrambling to come up with other MVP candidates so that Tom Brady doesn’t win it. Let’s pretend that Wentz didn’t get hurt:
Player A: 101.9 rating, 3,296 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 7 ints
Player B: 109.7 rating, 3,632 yards, 26 touchdwons, and 4 ints
Player A also had 4 touchdown passes in the game before he got hurt last night so he is basically a game ahead of player B as far as stats go. We could take a closer look tomorrow after player B dominates tonight on Monday Night Football.
Anyway – I would take player B as the MVP if Wentz stayed healthy. Obviously now that he is hurt, there will be Player c, d, e, f, g, h, I, j, k, ect that will get thrown out there by the media as candidates to win the MVP. It’s crazy how much the media hates the greatest to ever do it. But, it’ll be funny to listen to them embarrass themselves and create arguments why players like Dak Prescott and Aaron Donald are more worthy candidates to win the MVP than Tom Brady. And if the Associated Press find a way to give the award to someone other than Brady, like they did last year, he will inevitably take home the better award of Superbowl Trophy and Superbowl MVP.
