This is outrageous.
Not even the most extreme members of the Folesian Society would say something like this. But Max Kellerman would. And he did, on today’s edition of First Take:

Some of the exchange:
Kellerman: A lot of the reason they’re dropping passes, and I’ve been on this since day one – Carson Wentz has to show that he can lead them…
Stephen A: That is ridiculous.
Stephen A: You stop.
So he’s not really saying that they are dropping the ball on purpose, but he says “I believe it’s affecting things,” which I guess is an assertion that the receivers aren’t trying as hard for Wentz as they would for Foles. They aren’t busting their ass for him. Perhaps they aren’t as dialed in or mentally focused with Wentz on the field, if they purportedly do not like him.
It’s quite the take, that’s for certain. Maybe the receivers do prefer Nick Foles, but I can’t imagine that would manifest itself in dropping passes that hit them square in the chest or hands.
