O’Hara: I’m Not Panicking On The Eagles At All
The Eagles head into their match-up with the Giants on Thursday Night with a 2-3 record as their offense is averaging on 20.6 Points Per Game, down eight points compared to their production last season when they ranked as a top five offense in the NFL. Despite the team's rough start to the season, Carson Wentz has played well since his return with a 67.2 Completion Percentage and averaging 304.7 Yards Per Game, both would be career high's for the 25-year old Quarterback.
NFL Network NFL Analyst Shaun O'Hara joined Rich Quinones discussing Carson Wentz and the play of the Eagles after first 5 weeks of the NFL season:
"Carson Wentz being hurt and not starting the season definitely changed things and then when he comes back it’s hard to really expect him to just come back from a catastrophic injury like that and just jump right back in the saddle. - The game has kind of seemed like it’s a little too fast for him; He’s trying to slow the game down mentally and you know we’ve seen him take a number of sacks which, I thought last year the Eagles did a great job protecting him the offensive line played really well and he was able to hang in the pocket and make some big time throws and we just haven’t seen that....I’m not panicking on the Eagles at all; I think it’s tough when you win a Super Bowl and now to come back and get charged up for another season. Sometimes, it’s a little tough and the fact that Carson Wentz wasn’t ready to go took a little wind out their sails but it’s a physical grind and now they are getting everybody’s best. Everybody wants to knock off the defending champs"
