Bradham: Wentz Is a Magician – He’s Unbelievable Out There
The big star of the Eagles 34-7 win over the Cardinals was second year Quarterback Carson Wentz who was 21 for 30 for 304 Yards and four touchdowns on Sunday. Wentz became the only quarterback in Eagles franchise history to throw three touchdown passes in the first quarter of a game. He is on pace to throw 32 Touchdowns this season, which would double his total from 2016.
Eagles Linebacker Nigel Bradham joined Rich Quinones on Monday and gave his perspective on the Eagles' Quarterback:
“(Wentz is) a magician back there, he’s unbelievable out there at times, what he can do with his legs and then his arm is tremendously accurate and (balls are) well thrown. And he just creates time, being able to create plays on his feet and that’s why we call him ‘The Magician’ because he’s just going to make something happen on Third Down, like we honestly have so much confidence, no matter what the down and distance is, in him on Third Down and his capabilities of converting them. And the Run Game opens up everything, once it’s rolling our Tight Ends play is elevated, I feel like that opens up (Zach) Ertz a lot in the Pass Game when the Run Game is going well and he dominates, he’s playing extremely well….And our Offensive Line is doing great as well so everybody’s just been clicking and we got to keep that going.”
