Eagles QB Carson Wentz talks the ‘heartbreak’ of the loss to Washington
- by admin
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentza says he is not a big fan of the criticism his team is receiving after losing to the Washington Redskins in Week 2.
The Eagles were 4-0 when Wentz completed 21 of 38 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins, who went on to win the game 28-10.
But Wentz’s performance was criticized heavily after the game for his performance.
“We’re not that great, man,” Wentz said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.
“We lost to a really good team.
We had a great offense.
But when you lose to a team that was good last year, it’s disappointing, and we have to fix it.
We’re not going to fix that, and it’s going to take us a little while.”
Wentz did not address his performance in the team’s locker room, and he also said that his team needs to get better, which is something that Chip Kelly said he has done in his first year in Philadelphia.
“I think that’s one of the reasons we had success last year,” Kelly said, via the Philadelphia Daily News.
“I think we’re doing a good job, but we have a lot to work on.
And when we have that time, I think you can get it going.”
The Eagles are currently in the midst of a 2-4 stretch that includes a 4-1 record, and Wentz knows that his first two starts as the starter are going to be tough to get right.
“When I go out there, I want to come in and show everybody that I’m a competitor,” he said, according to the Inquireer.
“Just like last year when we lost, I’m going to work my butt off to prove myself.
That’s why I want it to be my first time out there.
So I think we can do that.
I think when we start playing better, I’ll get it rolling.”
