Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles

The most memorable moment to come out of Sunday's #79 Rob Havenstein Womens Jersey games was the incredible touchdown pass Wentz threw to Nelson Agholor. You've seen it already, but Wentz's ability to elude pressure from the pocket and escape to safety before finding and firing a strike to an open receiver downfield was positively Russell Wilson-esque. Everything from the footwork to the consistent vision looking downfield was textbook. You couldn't ask for more out of Wentz than you got on that play. Wentz's numbers, by the end of the day, were pretty: He finished 26-of-39 for 307 yards with two touchdowns, although the second-year passer also threw in an interception, a lost fumble (of sorts) and a couple of passes which the announcing crew characterized as near-picks. Indeed, a closer look at Wentz's day wasn't quite as rosy. All brilliance on that one play aside, Wentz was wildly inconsistent during Philadelphia's 30-17 win in Washington, showing some of the same problems that frustrated Eagles fans during an up-and-down rookie campaign. While Wentz turned the ball over twice, he's Authentic Eli Manning Womens Jersey not entirely at blame for the giveaways. The pick-six he threw to Ryan Kerrigan was tipped slightly by Stacy McGee at the line of scrimmage, and the lost "fumble" was a backward swing pass that Agholor couldn't hold on to. Wentz deserves some of the blame for a throw that wasn't easy for his oft-criticized receiver to bring in, but Agholor was only put under pressure to make the catch because Torrey Smith whiffed on his attempt to block Kendall Fuller and then basically stood up and watched as Washington recovered the fumble. Smith was at fault there, but Wentz might have cost Smith one of the biggest games of his career. Multiple times, Smith got open for what might have been a long touchdown, but Wentz missed on his pass. Wentz's first throw of the game was a play-action pass with a seven-step drop and a bomb to Smith, who ran by Josh Norman, but Wentz underthrew the pass and Norman nearly picked it off: Later, in the fourth quarter, coach Doug Pederson went back to the well and got Smith matched up against Norman, who never really shadowed Alshon Jeffery across the field despite the pregame hype. Smith ran by Norman for what should have been a long touchdown, but this time, Wentz overthrew his new wideout by 2 yards. In between, Wentz left another would-be touchdown on the field with a poor pass, this time to Agholor. Pederson brought Agholor in motion for a would-be jet sweep but then sent him back out from where he came after the snap on a wheel route for what should have been an easy score, given Jaelen Strong Youth Jersey that Washington had essentially vacated that entire side of the field and pushed D.J. Swearinger up toward the line of scrimmage. Wentz's pass was behind Agholor, who had to make a one-handed catch to bring the ball in and pick up a first down. The Eagles were able to survive the mistakes because Wentz responded with special plays. He followed the first missed pass to Smith with that remarkable touchdown pass to Agholor. After missing Agholor in the red zone, Wentz would eventually throw a touchdown pass to LeGarrette Blount, which might have been the most miraculous and unlikely thing the former North Dakota State star did all day. To be fair, there were plenty of things to like about Wentz's performance on Sunday outside of those super throws. Wentz did a great job of handling pressure and free rushers, even beyond that magical pass to Agholor. He wasn't drastically impacted by the absence of left tackle Jason Peters, who went down with a groin injury during the first half and gave way to Halapoulivaati Vaitai. Wentz was generally crisp on intermediate routes, hitting his receivers in stride. He was also effective over the middle, mostly finding Agholor and Zach Ertz, and showed few signs of being the quarterback who sailed a league-high seven interceptions between the hashmarks last season. Wentz is still a work in progress. It will be great if he can perform his Wilson impression on a weekly basis, but it's more plausible that Wentz won't be spinning away from free rushers and firing 60-yard strikes from game to game. He's going to have to take advantage of these windows and hit these big plays. The deep pass was the big concern about Wentz after his rookie season, given that the Eagles starter was 24th in QBR and 26th in passer rating on throws 16-plus yards downfield last year. The new receivers were supposed to solve those problems, but Wentz left two long scores to be had against Washington. Nobody hits 100 percent of those passes, but Wentz's execution on big plays could be what determines whether the former second overall pick turns into a good quarterback or a superstar.
