Feeley: I Don’t Think Game Is Going To Be Too Fast for Wentz
Eagles Rookie Quarterback Carson Wentz will make the first start of his NFL career this Sunday versus the Browns. Before being drafted by the Eagles with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Wentz played at North Dakota State where he appeared in 42 games, compiling 5,115 Passing Yards, 45 Passing Touchdowns, only 14 Interceptions, career Completion Percentage of 64.1% and ran for 13 Rushing Touchdowns.
Former Eagles Quarterback A.J. Feeley played six seasons in the NFL, four with Philadelphia, he joined The Locker Room with Billy Schweim on Saturday and discussed Wentz's mindset going into Sunday's game:
"Mentally I think he is just preparing for the game, I don't think the game is going to be too fast for him, after seeing him play in the Preseason...you could see that he was very athletic and nothing was too big for him. Right now his mindset is studying the game plan, crossing the T's and dotting the I's, developing a repore with the guys at practice, and going into the game with (mindset of) 'Hey take one play at a time, try to get easy completions, and let the chips fall where they may'"
Hear what Feeley had to say about how difficult it is to play Quarterback in the NFL, how valuable it is for Wentz to have former NFL QBs as his coaches, expectations he has for Sunday's Eagles' game, and he looks back on his playing career
