let another team have a heroic QB, I want a smart one. He could have slid at the 1. Was it a big play? Sure, but not even close to worth the risk. Maybe he'll learn from it.

Scrambling QB's are a ticking timebomb.


You question Wentz's intelligence? His only issue was his age and the feeling we all had that we were invincible in our youth. It is a harsh lesson he just learned, but he is a very intelligent kid and I am sure he will learn from this and become a better and WISER QB going forward. Don't confuse his intelligence with the wisdom that experience can only bring. As I said before, if this was going to happen, better early in his career than later, both from a healing and learning perspective. I am still confident that he will return and have a career that will be filled with amazing moments and ultimately, success.

Very well spoken.

I say the Seahawks caused the ACL injury. They stripped the ball from Wentz two weeks ago as he was headed to the end zone. Against the Rams he had time to stretch the ball out and just let it cross the goal. Instead he powered into the end zone with the ball well secured.

Part of Carson's success has been his competitiveness and toughness. It is hard to tell a 235lb QB to not take on a DB at the goal line.

I fear Pbfan is correct that he will be a ticking time bomb like most other running QBs.
