Default Does anyone else think Wentz needs preseason reps?

I mean dude hasn't seen regular season action while fully healthy in a while. And if you believe you have to protect him in bubble wrap then maybe 108 mill guaranteed wasn't such a good move? (Sarcasm on the contract)

I don't care how hard practices are he needs to go against other teams to see some live game action or games 1 & 2 will be his preseason and most likely won't be such great performances. I may be wrong but I would like to see a few series from Wentz.

WOULD ONE OR TWO SERIES ACTUALLY HELP? TO DO WHAT, SHOW A VANILLA OFFENSE, HANDING THE BALL OFF AND SHORT PASSES, MAYBE ONE LONG PASS TO DJAX?
I DON'T SEE THE UPSIDE.

Default Jenkins in an Interview said it best

U need to be out there,,,see some game speed, and knock some of that rust off.

I was joking with the wife; Wentz needs to be in one of those Blow up balls you roll down the hills in...then Id feel better


Yeah he needs some reps,,,hoping we see the Starters for 1 qrt in the 3rd game...play every down like your going to be late late hit....Protect!

Default You really want to put him out there...

with a backup OLine? Peters, Johnson, and Brooks won't play until the season starts, so you risk a freak play like the one that knocked Kessler out last night. Wentz will be fine waiting for the real season. Since TC has been reduced to a shell of itself with the CBA, the month of September has most teams looking sloppy early on, and I think we have enough talent to get on track in game 1. It is a different NFL these days and all teams face the same problem.

Yes 1 quarter of quick release throws, some hand offs and one bomb to DJ.

No. Traditionally the third game sees the most starter time, and the last game is all scrubs, since the coaches are trying to make final cut decisions. Having Wentz out there for the final preseason game doesn't make sense.

I KNOW I'M NOT THE SHARPEST TACK IN THE BOX, BUT SMEGMA MAKES EVERYONE FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES.

SINCE WHEN DID ANY STARTERS EVER PLAY IN THE LAST PRESEASON GAME?

SERIOUS QUESTION. LATE SEVENTIES MAYBE?

Is there a rule regarding that? "All presumptive starters must play at least the first half (and into the 3rd quarter) of the 3rd preseason game."

In case you haven't been paying attention, preseason is dying / evolving right before our eyes. As of today, 12 presumptive starting QBs haven't taken a preseason game snap.
