ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky has been a staunch defender for Carson Wentz over the past two years. The former NFL quarterback was also briefly mentioned as an assistant coaching candidate for the Philadelphia Eagles. So Orlovsky definitely has a vested interest in the franchise.
Does that mean he has insider knowledge of the organization? Maybe. So it was interesting to hear Orlovsky offer some pretty eye-opening comments about Wentz during a recent interview on the Pat McAfee Show.
He thinks there is a lot of “built-up animosity” between Wentz and the Eagles, including a general feeling that the benched starting quarterback feels “betrayed.” Naturally, Frank Reich’s name came up in the conversation as rumors of Wentz heading to the Indianapolis Colts continue to swirl.
“A lot of people think there’s a lot of built-up animosity between him and the organization in Philly,” Orlovsky said. “I think a lot of people think he misses Frank Reich as a human more than just a play-caller. I think a lot of people feel that Carson Wentz feels betrayed and the only person in the NFL that he trusts is Frank Reich.”
Orlovsky put the Colts “100-percent” at the top of his list of teams that might trade for Wentz in the offseason. He also put the San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions on it.
“A lot of people think there’s a built-up animosity between him & that organization in Philly..
A lot of people think that he misses Frank Reich as a human more than just a play caller..
