Ex-NFL LB Bart Scott Explains Why Eagles' Carson Wentz Is "Fool’s Gold"

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Former Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott is not a fan of Carson Wentz, the rookie quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick, has Philadelphia in the palm of his hands, but the CBS Sports NFL analyst says not so fast.

Scott was a guest on “The DA Show,” when he said Wentz was successful against the NFL’s “JV.”

“Come on, man. Fool’s gold. He’s played the JV. He could play Towson University and get a harder challenge than playing those two teams.

“It’s easy to make good throws when there’s nobody there in your face. There’s no threat. There’s no imminent threat of danger. He’s going to be under pressure. He’s going to be under stressful situations. Come on, man. We could go right now. We could get the University of Louisville or Houston, and they could beat the Browns.”

We’ll get the chance to see where Wentz stands in Week 3 when Philly will face a Pittsburgh Steelers team that has slowed down Andy Dalton and Kirk Cousins in consecutive weeks.

“He’s played traditional 4-3 teams. It’s going to be a little bit difficult. There’s going to be a little trickeration this week. There’s going to be a lot of pressure to put up 40 points because Ben’s going to sling that thing. This week, he’s going to have to be aggressive and he’s going to have to take chances. It’s not like this Pittsburgh Steelers defense is a great defense by any stretch of the imagination, especially in the secondary. But they’re going to create traps for him. They’re going to play with his eyes. The safeties are going to move up and back. Mike Mitchell is a veteran safety. … He’s going to feel the pressure trying to keep up with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Believe that.”
