I know Wentz can be a star. We saw it in 2017 when he was completely in the MVP mix before tearing his ACL in week 14. We saw it in 2019 when he carried a non-name-receiving corps to the playoffs by going 4-0 against the division in December to get to the playoffs. I know 2020 was cumbersome, but it does not matter what I know – it only means what we see in 2021.
Yes, I feel Wentz had legitimate reasons for failure last season, but there is no reason to sum up the excuses. Not after Wentz’s move out of season to a plum position in Indy, where he reunites with Frank Reich, who was his offensive coordinator in the stellar ’17 campaign. The Colts fine the 28-year-old signal call, Quenton Nelson-led O-line. Wentz delivers the ball to Jonathan Taylor, who just rushed to 1
Indy is the type of team that could take the division and then win a playoff game or two. This is the kind of list. The pressure is on for Wentz to deliver the goods. I think he will. (And he better.)
