EAGLE QB CARSON WENTZ’S ARM LOOKING AVERAGE AT BEST

By Michael Donovan

Eagles big boss Howie Boy Roseman leveraged the team’s future — and his — by trading five draft picks for the right to move up and draft quarterback Carson Wentz.

And yesterday that looked like an idiotic move.

Earlier in the day, coach Doug Pederson agreed that Wentz’s passes have looked wobbly, but that’s not the big problem.

The bigger problem is that the ball sometimes isn’t getting there.

For years in this town, everyone made fun of Donovan McNabb for throwing the ball at his receivers’ feet, but at least that doesn’t lead to a ton of interceptions.

Early on, Wentz has shown a propensity for overthrowing his targets and soaring balls. This is a little more dangerous.

His best play yesterday came when he rolled to his right and delivered a strike to Jordan Matthews on the run. In a game, he likely would have already been sacked, but the play did show off some athleticism.
