For Eagles’ Carson Wentz, an Imperfect Super Bowl Moment

For Eagles’ Carson Wentz, an Imperfect Super Bowl Moment
for-eagles’-carson-wentz-an-imperfect-super-bowl-moment

When the Philadelphia Eagles claimed their first Super Bowl championship on Sunday, their franchise quarterback Carson Wentz wasn’t brought up onto the podium for the interviews broadcast on the stadium screens. He did not partake in the postgame confetti snow angels.

 reviewing film with the backup-turned-starting quarterback Nick Foles and even throwing passes to teammates before kickoff on Sunday. But he also took care not to be the center of attention.,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/ryan-tannehill-jersey-authentic]Womens Ryan Tannehill Jersey[/url],Wentz, 25, had been a presence in Minneapolis all week, showing up for media events

 and I’m actually not playing in it.”,“Last year, I went to the Super Bowl and did appearances and everything,” Wentz said here early last week. “I said, ‘I’m not coming back until I’m playing in it.’ Here I am

Wentz’s teammates and the Eagles’ coaching staff said he had been instrumental in the championship campaign, even though he never took a snap in it. He sat in on quarterback meetings after his injury and offered Foles tips in film sessions — helping him shine during the playoff victories against Atlanta and Minnesota that secured Philadelphia’s Super Bowl bid.

“Carson instilled a confidence, a swagger and a belief,” the Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. “That’s the kind of leader and player he is.”

 then receded into the background.,But on Sunday, with confetti in the air and Philadelphia fans cheering, it was hard to spot Wentz on the field. He was one of the first people to congratulate Foles, giving him an extended hug after the game clock expired

 and the third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld.,In the locker room, Wentz lumbered around with a slight hitch in his step — refraining from dancing around to Meek Mill and bathing in champagne with his teammates, likely for fear of putting his injured leg at risk. He chatted with tight end Zach Ertz, who scored the game’s go-ahead touchdown

 presumably leaving Foles to return to his backup quarterback spot — or find a way to move to a new team looking for a starter.,What will happen next season when Wentz returns didn’t seem to be a question that needed an immediate answer Sunday night. Wentz, [url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/jarvis-landry-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey[/url],who is in the middle of a four-year contract, is slotted to return for the 2018 season

After eight seasons in football hell, Chris Long is just four quarters away from hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the second year in a row. But,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/ryan-tannehill-jersey-authentic]Authentic Ryan Tannehill Jersey[/url], he insisted Thursday that he is no more responsible for his good fortune now than he was those playoff-less 2-14 and 1-15 and 6-10 and 7-9 seasons with the St. Louis Rams.

“Me being on two Super Bowl teams in a row is just that I’ve been on two Super Bowl teams in a row,’’ the Eagles defensive end said. “It has nothing to do with me. I’m just a lucky dude that made some good decisions in free agency.’’

Not quite. A year ago, maybe you could make a case that Long was mostly along for the ride when he won a Super Bowl with the Patriots,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/jay-ajayi-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jay Ajayi Jersey[/url], who just happen to be the Eagles’ opponent on Feb. 4 in Super Bowl LII.

But not this season. This season, he’s been an important part of the Eagles’ defensive success as an edge-rusher in Jim Schwartz’s wide-nine, 4-3 scheme. He tied for third on the team in sacks with five and was second in pressures with 38. He also had a team-high four forced fumbles.

 momentum-shifting touchdown.,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/kenny-stills-jersey-authentic]Womens Kenny Stills Jersey[/url],In last week’s win over the Vikings in the NFC championship, it was his throw-altering pressure on Case Keenum that forced the underthrown, first-quarter pass that was picked off by cornerback Patrick Robinson and returned for a game-tying

“Everybody wants to do their job well,’’ Long said. “I got a thrill out of being there [New England] last year. And I was certainly a part of it.

“I had to do some things that weren’t natural to me. But I was happy to do them because it was a blessing to be there. It was a great team.

“This year, [url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/kenny-stills-jersey-authentic]Authentic Kenny Stills Jersey[/url], my role’s different. I’ve actually taken less snaps than I did there. But the snaps I’m taking here, I’m doing what I do [best]. And I can be more proud of my individual contributions as far as the quality of football I’m playing.’’

Long is a natural 4-3 end who was used a lot inside in the Patriots’ multiple fronts. He played 65 percent of the defensive snaps last year. But his playing time dropped off significantly in the post season.

“I’m just lucky to have played for him for a year,’’ Long said of Patriots coach Bill Belichick. “When you play for a guy who’s that awesome a coach,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/jay-ajayi-jersey-authentic]Womens Jay Ajayi Jersey[/url], you look at football different. I learned a lot from him.

“Even when I called him before I hit free agency, I need to play more in-position.’ He understood that from the beginning.’’, I said, I don’t want to waste your time. I don’t know if I have a spot [on the team] or not. But at 32 years old, ‘Hey, if I’m going to play at a high level, a level I can be proud of

“He did a great job for us,’’ he said. “There was no better teammate or guy that tried to embrace the program than Chris. But in the end, he probably was a better fit there for his skills and for this point in his career than maybe we had for him. He probably made a good decision.’’

While the Eagles deserve credit for signing Long to a one-year deal, it was Long who called them about playing in Philadelphia.

 I need to get on a team.’’,“Where I was last year, I had a bunch of people that were,’’ Long said. “I’m like, like, you’re crazy for leaving the Patriots. And you suck. You’re old. You’re washed up

 you tell somebody that. But then you have to go out and prove it.’’,“I said, ‘Well, I’ve got to get hold of somebody there and let them know I’m not dead and that I want to keep playing and I have a lot [left] in the tank,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/samson-ebukam-jersey-authentic]Authentic Samson Ebukam Jersey[/url],’ ’’ Long said. “Of course

He called executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman and told him he wanted to play for the Eagles.

“He could easily have said, we just made it work., ‘Nah,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/dan-marino-jersey-authentic]Authentic Dan Marino Jersey[/url], dude. You’re too old,[url=http://www.dolphinsfootballauthentic.com/jarvis-landry-jersey-authentic]Womens Jarvis Landry Jersey[/url],’ or ‘We looked at your tape last year [and weren’t impressed], awesome. It would be great.’ From there,’ ’’ Long said. But he was like,‘Yeah

“Connor was right. The coolest thing he loved about this place – and he was really civic-minded – was the city of Philly. As great as everything is in here, the thing I love the most about Philly is Philly.’’
