6 months agoNumerous sources around the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles said they thought quarterback Carson Wentz may have been the root of the team's offensive problems in 2018, not offensive coordinator Mike Groh. Groh is a "good coach" who was "bullied" by Wentz, according to sources. Wentz and backup Nick Foles respect each other, but the sentiment in the locker room is that Foles is "universally loved," while Wentz isn't. Sources described Wentz as "selfish," "uncompromising," "egotistical," one who plays "favorites" and doesn't like to be "questioned", one who needs to "practice what he preaches" and fails "to take accountability." While Wentz is intelligent on the football field, sources say he's the one that created friction within the offense. He listened more to coordinators Frank Reich and John DeFilippo in 2016 and 2017 and had an MVP-like season in 2017 before tearing his ACL. Foles went through progressions as the plays were intended, while Wentz pretty much just zoned in on tight end Zach Ertz most of the time. Wentz also likely returned too soon from his knee injury last season and wasn't 100 percent all year before being shut down with a fracture in his back. While these are real concerns moving forward, Wentz is the team's long-term future under center and is just 26 years old. However, his star is falling in redraft leagues as a QB1 and he has played in just one full NFL season and no playoff games. If he doesn't press and play favorites on the field and most importantly if he stays healthy, he could return to his MVP self in 2017. That's what his fantasy owners will be banking on with Foles likely out of the picture in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
