After sustaining injuries in both Ankles last week, Carson Wentz has led his new squad to an 0-3 start. Winning in the NFL has never been easy, but many predicted the Colts to be better than this.
Carson Wentz completed just 19 throws on a whopping 37 attempts in today’s 25-16 loss the Titans. Maybe the Eagles were smart to deal Wentz?
Who are we kidding? Trading Carson Wentz was the best thing that franchise ever did.

Wentz is obviously struggling quite a bit, however he can’t take all the blame here. Pro Bowl guard Quenton Nelson was carted off the field with an ankle injury earlier today, so obviously protection in Indy wasn’t at its best. Still, Carson Wentz needs to find ways to win football games before he looks like a deserved scapegoat in Philadelphia.

The Colts ran for 87 yards while Wentz was only sacked twice, which makes you believe he just couldn’t get it done from the pocket. Game tape will show inaccuracy down the field and poorly timed reads — a mirror image of what we saw out the no. 2 overall pick these past few years.
Didn’t throw a single touchdown or pick in this game and somehow managed to target Michael Pittman Jr. 12 times.
Indianapolis heads to Miami to take on the likely Tua-less Dolphins next week. If they can’t find a way to leave with a ‘W’, the sky may be falling on Carson Wentz.
