Carson Wentz Admitting Super Bowl Week is Hard for Him
Super Bowl 52 is less than a week away and millions upon millions of people are eager to watch the matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.
However, not everyone is terribly eager for Sunday. One of those with a less-than-happy mood is none other than Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. Normally, players from both teams speak in front of the media for Super Bowl Opening Night, but Wentz was simply not part of the main show at all.
With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Wentz admitted that he was rather hurt and put off having to watch his team punch their ticket to the Super Bowl from the audience rather than on the field. He added that there will be tons of mixed feelings for him the second his team hits the field on Sunday, but then said that once those are out of the way then everything will feel back to normal for him.
In the meantime, all Wentz can do right now is keep his head up and help backup QB Nick Foles as much as possible in order to prepare for the game. It’s necessary for him but admittedly extremely tough considering that he had a great chance to make NFL history earlier on. In fact, Wentz’s performances earlier this season had him in line to possibly win the MVP Award from the league.
Despite this, Wentz has made assurances that he’ll be fine with anything that happens and knows he is still a part of the Eagles team. Even fellow teammates like tight end Brent Celek make it a point to tell Wentz that he’s still with the team in spirit.
