What Did Carson Wentz Do to Josina Anderson?

Tim Reilly - January 6, 2020

During her tenure as NFL insider and reporter for ESPN, Josina Anderson has developed a knack for cultivating sources that have critical opinions of Carson Wentz.

Last November, as the Eagles sunk below .500, Anderson used her platform to amplify criticism from an anonymous player who had grown frustrated with the offense, particularly quarterback Carson Wentz’s reliance on Zach Ertz.

This year, the October surprise Anderson provided the Eagles came courtesy of another anonymous player who had grown frustrated with Wentz’s perceived penchant to chase the home run rather than make the safer throw to his check down option.

Receivers Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery denied that they were Anderson’s source; in late October, the ESPN reporter seemed to suggest that former Eagle Orlando Scandrick was the 2019 mole in the Birds’ locker room after the corner openly berated the organization on Fox Sports’ Undisputed.

Carson Wentz’s Injury Led to Some Garbage Takes

Russ Joy - January 5, 2020

The game against the Seahawks was going to be a tough one. We knew that. Instead of focusing on whether or not the Eagles’ defense could hand Russell Wilson his first ever loss to the Birds, we were subjected to this dirty, disgusting hit by noted cheap-shot artist Jadeveon Clowney, who once nearly decapitated Nick Foles:

Somehow the officials deemed the hit unworthy of a penalty, despite the helmet-to-helmet nature, a hit on a QB going to ground, landing with his body weight on a QB, spearing, and targeting. Anyway, if you thought you’d seen stupidity before, we were treated to some true gems on Twitter.

“Wentz is injury prone”

There’s a difference between being a player who gets routinely injured and misses time. It’s another when he gets taken out from behind on a helmet-to-helmet shot. Don’t tell these people, who apparently know better:

Crossing Broadcast: “So You’re Saying There’s a Chance?”

Bob, Anthony, and Russ reflect on wins over the Giants and Redskins, including Carson Wentz’s clutch game-winning drives, Greg Ward and Boston Scott’s play, and whether it’s fair to believe in the Eagles. The guys share their thoughts on the Phillies’ signing of Zack Wheeler and Didi Gregorius, if the Phillies are much better than they were a season ago, whether they can and will make a big trade to make themselves a contender. They then take a macro view of the Sixers’ recent run, whether the loss to the Nets means anything, trade targets, and competing with Milwaukee. Finally, a blueprint to beat the Cowboys.

On-Brand Gender Reveals for the Discerning Philadelphia Athlete

Coggin Toboggan - December 12, 2019

Carson Wentz revealed the gender of his unborn child in a unique way this past week, as his wife Madison Oberg hucked powder-filled footballs into the air while Wentz and his buddies blasted away with shotguns in the most on-brand reveal of all time.

The happy couple will welcome a girl into the world who will only be able to be soothed asleep to the crack of a shotgun ringing through her ears, which in all honesty won’t be much of a problem considering how much of an outdoorsman Wentz seems to be.

Now, I could make all the obvious jokes about how Nick Foles would have done a better gender reveal, or would have shot the gun more accurately than Wentz, or actually has a Super Bowl ring to pass down to his children that was given to him for more than just standing around on the sidelines, but I won’t do that. It’s a momentous occasion for the Wentz family that doesn’t have to be cheapened by sub-par jokes about firing his shotgun high and outside, just like his swing passes.

It was a creative, unique gender reveal that suited the Wentz family well. They love to hunt, they love to shoot, they love football… it worked. So how could other Philadelphia athletes creatively reveal the genders of their future children? Be them planned, a happy surprise, or a haunting mistake like my mother has so constantly reminded me over the years, the reveals after the jump are perfectly crafted for the athletes in mind.
