Carson Wentz Is Done for the Season: Philly Reacts
Sure, the Eagles won the NFC East, but the loss of our star QB has even casual fans lamenting.
Sorry, Philly Jesus, but your prayers apparently fell on deaf ears: The Eagles have just confirmed that quarterback Carson Wentz will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a devastating knee injury during Sunday’s 43-35 win over the Los Angeles Rams. With our Super Bowl hopes likely dashed (Wentz was the frontrunner for NFL MVP prior to shredding his ACL), Birds watchers took to Twitter to collectively mourn the 2017 season before it’s even over …
don't call me and taunt me about carson wentz I WILL CUT YOU THE FUCK OFF!!!!

So, we are never gonna see the full potential of this team with Wentz as the QB. Absolutely killer to think of how far this team has come this year with him. Now, we can’t see what happens in the playoffs with him on the field.

Somebody has got to remain positive, I guess…
Wentz: torn ACL. Nick, we’re all in!#Eagles

People lets not forget. Yes Carson Wentz may have the 3rd highest QB rating (101.9) for a season in Eagles history. But Nick Foles has the highest (119.2 in 2013).
