This is a real nice article on 11. Players and coaches share their thoughts on what makes the guy special, on and off the field. Check it out. His confidence, athleticism, leadership and charity are all part of what makes him up. The thing I think makes him a perfect fit for Philadelphia is his attitude. He's a worker and a thumper. Blue collar smart.

"Wentz's confidence and leadership has gone beyond how he conducts himself around teammates, he has reached a point in his development where debates over strategies and game-planning sometimes even get heated between the quarterback and offensive coordinator Frank Reich. "

With Reich, not Pedey, Hmm

He spends hours and hours studying tape. Kinda like that guy Peyton Manning did. I like it...

Reich is quoted as saying Wentz has a reputation of arguing with coordinators going back to NDST, and that they have good discussions and implement elements of ND's offense that Wentz is comfortable with. The 'heated debates' crap comes from the writer. It also is unclear how many coaches are in those discussions - presumably the head coach is.

He always had the tools, when you take the time to learn how to use them, it is amazing what can happen. And again, he is constantly learning more and more. He has a Peyton Manning football IQ coupled with far more athleticism, if he stays healthy the career this kid can have is staggering. I did notice in the Denver game that his completion % went down, mainly because he threw some air balls on purpose to avoid taking a hit. Another step in his amazing growth curve.

Yeah, the improvement & consistency from year one to two is amazing, he's a special player thats for sure. My only real worry for Wentz is the hits he is willing to take, although he does seem to have toned down that side of his game recently.
