Word of advice. Get yourself teammates like Fletcher Cox and Zach Ertz. 


It didn't take long for them to come to Carson Wentz's defense, just a few hours after a strange hit piece was launched by the Philly Voice, claiming the QB is not well-liked in the locker room.

Cox, the 2018 All-Pro defensive tackle, was the first to stick up for his quarterback ​Carson Wentz this morning​ in the face of a "report" where multiple unnamed Eagles took shots at their franchise signal-caller. 


Cox is adamant about his continuing support for Wentz, the third-year quarterback who had a stellar 2017 campaign before an ACL tear prematurely ended his season and seemingly the Eagles' Super Bowl hopes (thank you, Nick Foles).

​​The report by Joseph Santoliquito of PhillyVoice.com claims that anonymous Eagles have come forward to express a belief that Wentz is "'selfish,' 'uncompromising,’ ‘egotistical,’ one who plays ‘favorites’ and doesn’t like to be ‘questioned,’ one who needs to ‘practice what he preaches’ and fails ‘to take accountability.'”


Fletcher Cox obviously does not feel that way and invited Eagles players to challenge his stance on Twitter.

​​Ertz echoed Cox's sentiments, expressing the locker room's support for Wentz. 

​​No matter how the Philadelphia locker room truly feels about Carson Wentz, the Eagles have every intention to keep the former first-round pick as their franchise quarterback, with the likely departure of Philly hero Nick Foles this offseason. 


Despite injury concerns, when Wentz is on the field and fully healthy, he has been nothing short of a ​star in this league.
