Pundits across the NFL have lambasted Carson Wentz over the last 24 hours for his performance in the Philadelphia Eagles home loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. While there's no doubting that Wentz was woefully erratic at times, ESPN analyst and former Detroit Lions quarterback, Dan Orlovsky, reviewed film from the game and highlighted some revealing details about how Philly's receiving corps are screwing over the North Dakota State product. Brace yourselves, fans in the City of Brotherly Love, because this clip is hard to watch.
Somebody should seriously send this piece of footage to head coach Doug Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman as soon as possible. We understand that the Eagles were without Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, but these are elementary mistakes that NFL wideouts shouldn't be making.
Orlovsky called the performance, and rightfully so, the single-worst game he's ever witnessed from a group of receivers in terms of fundamental details/positioning.
We're not saying to dismiss all of the blame from Wentz. His footwork, mechanics, and accuracy have all been suspect in 2019, BUT Orlovsky's dissection proves that he deserves some of the benefit of the doubt.
The Eagles have a real problem at the WR position, folks, and it's not going away anytime soon.
