Eagles-Wentz Divorce Is An Organizational Failure
The Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz parted ways on Thursday and the long anticipated separation is finally a done deal. How did the Eagles relationship with the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft become so toxic? The Eagles sent Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts for a 3rd round pick in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft and a conditional 2nd round pick in 2022 that could become a 1st Round Pick if certain expectations are met by Wentz and the Colts make the playoffs. Why was Carson Wentz so unhappy in Philadelphia? There are so many rumors flying around to make your head spin but we all saw the storm clouds on the horizon when the Eagles drafted Jalen Hurts with their 2nd round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. We will review it all on The Locker Room with Bill Schweim this weekend!!
Also, the Phillies started their Spring Training in Clearwater, Florida this week while the Sixers returned to their winning ways on Wednesday night when they returned home from their four game road trip and face the Chicago Bulls Friday Night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers returned to the ice on Thursday Night against the New York Rangers with a Shootout Loss after a brief stoppage due to COVID-19 Protocols as a few players remain unavailable as they are still listed on the COVID List.
On Saturday’s edition of The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, Scott McKay and I will discuss our views on the Carson Wentz Trade and the Birds biggest blunders over the years. The Phillies started Spring Training but JT Realmuto will miss time with a broken thumb. We will talk with Dr. Sean McMillion, Chief of Orthopedics for Virtua about JT’s prognosis. Then we walk down memory lane with former Flyers Winger Brent Fedyk who was part of the Crazy 8’s Line.
On Sunday’s show we will continue to reflect on why and how the Eagles-Wentz marriage ended and what's next for the Eagles. We will hear from former Eagles Tight End and part time co-host of The Locker Room Ken Dunek. Ken will give us his perspective from a former player. Also, we will preview a busy day on the ice and the court as the Flyers and Sixers are back in action on Sunday.
All the action starts at 10am every Saturday and Sunday in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey.
