Earlier today a bombshell was dropped

by Joseph Santoliquito of PhillyVoice [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/nick-foles-jersey-authentic]Womens Nick Foles Jersey[/url] , accusing Carson Wentz of being selfish and egotistical, and that he was causing problems behind the scenes.There’s a lot in it that’s straight opinion, and everyone is entitled to theirs. The validity of those complaints is up to the reader. (I enjoyed the player who, when given the chance to “define what accountability means” by Doug Pederson, opted to say absolutely nothing.)But some of the complaints are based on stats, and the stats don’t fit the narrative.The biggest complaint in the piece is that Carson Wentz was “over targeting” Zach Ertz while Nick Foles was spreading it around more. Santoliquito gives one side of the story:Santoliquito does not mention the targets per game rate of that trio under Nick Foles. And even if he did [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/jordan-hicks-jersey-authentic]Youth Jordan Hicks Jersey[/url] , straight per game averages can be misleading, if one player has significantly more attempts per game, that’s going to effect everyone. So instead let’s look at how Wentz and Foles distributed their passes to that trio, since the takeaway from the piece is that Wentz was targeting Ertz at the expense of Jeffery and Agholor, and Foles wasn’t. The stats simply don’t back up that narrative. They saw pretty much the same distribution of targets regardless of who was at QB.Wentz/Foles Targets WentzFoles WentzFolesTo even out Ertz’s 2% difference, he would need 3 less targets in their 11 games together from Wentz and 3 more from Foles in their 7 games together. Another curious point was Frank Reich’s work with Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz’s performance without Reich. Reich did a tremendous job in Indianapolis and is deserving of all the praise he has received. But Santoliquito appears to want you to think that Luck was superior to Wentz this year because of Reich. The numbers don’t bare that out.I asked myself. Turns out that statistically [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/deandre-carter-jersey-authentic]Youth DeAndre Carter Jersey[/url] , Wentz was the superior passer.Wentz v Luck WentzLuck WentzLuckYes, he got sacked more, but Luck’s 2.7% sack rate was a huge outlier in his career, having been sacked on 5.6% of drop backs, with a season low of 4.2%. Meanwhile Wentz was sacked on 5.5% of drop backs prior to this season’s 7.2%. It’s a safe bet that Luck will be sacked more and Wentz less next year.The 2018 season was a difficult one for Wentz. He started and ended the season injured while his hugely successful backup added to his legend. The team had a losing record when he started, but only in one of those games did he play poorly. Complaints about how he handled the season shouldn’t be outright dismissed [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/jason-peters-jersey-authentic]Womens Jason Peters Jersey[/url] , and when it comes to how people feel, perception is the reality. But some of the complaints are easy to verify. Yes, Carson Wentz targeted Zach Ertz a lot. But so did Nick Foles.Donnel Pumphrey reportedly signs with Detroit Lions practice squad Former Philadelphia Eagles running back Donnel Pumphrey has found a new NFL home. The Detroit Lions are signing Pumphrey to their PRACTICE SQUAD, according to NFL insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. ESPN was first to report that Pumphrey was working out with the Lions on Monday.Pumphrey, 23, was waived by the Eagles on Saturday as Philadelphia trimmed their roster down to 53 players. Pump was showing some signs of improvement during offseason practices earlier this year. Nothing incredible [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/alshon-jeffery-jersey-authentic]Youth Alshon Jeffery Jersey[/url] , but he seemed to be moving in the direction. Then Pump re-injured the hamstring that landed him on injured reserve in 2017 right before the Eagles’ first 2018 preseason game. He wasn’t able to return to action until the Eagles’ preseason finale. By then, it was much too late for him to win the battle for Philadelphia’s fourth running back spot.Perhaps Pump will find a way to turn his career around in Detroit. For now, he’ll only be contributing as a practice member.It seems to say a lot that the Eagles didn’t even want Pump on their practice squad one year after trading up in the fourth round to select him in the 2017 NFL Draft.
