Eagles' Carson Wentz says he's ready despite limited chances in preseason

Eagles' Carson Wentz says he's ready despite limited chances in preseason”

Draft now and receive immediate cash payouts.

After signing with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason, Smith failed to be targetted during the team's first two preseason games.

Wentz, ever the leader, asserted after Thursday's game that "the protection has been solid", and added that "some of the things that have happened are on me". Phillips' turnover set up Miami's second touchdown of the first quarter and puts him back in the competition with Godchaux for a starting job.

Let's start with the positives.

On the other end of the spectrum, last year's most pleasant surprise of camp, Paul Turner, nearly certainly has no chance to survive the final cuts because of a shoulder injury that his kept him out of action in every game. Jeffery caught two receptions for 35 receiving yards and a touchdown. The halftime score - Philadelphia 28, Miami 24 - was indicative of the wild first half that saw nearly 500 yards of offense. If that is the case, Cutler finished the exhibition season 7-of-10 for 129 yards and a touchdown. Mind you, he did most of that damage with Jay Cutler as his quarterback.

On Carson Wentz: "Give me a guy who is from North Dakota and is not overwhelmed by the City of Philadelphia or its Eagles-crazy fans".

Since Wentz will not play in the Birds' preseason finale next week against the Jets in New Jersey, his exhibition season is over.

He is worth drafting as a starter in two-quarterback leagues, and he's worth a late-round flier in all formats if you like carrying two quarterbacks on your roster.

Wentz lasted a quarter Thursday, throwing two touchdown passes, but absorbing a sack and throwing an interception.

The Dolphins hadn't scored this many points in a preseason game since 1999. Winston, Drew Brees, Marcus Mariota, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, Derek Carr, Cam Newton and Tom Brady (twice) are among the passers who will face Miami this season, so the Dolphins are running out of time to magically fix what we saw Thursday night. He's now the No. 29 running back at No. 81 overall.

Blount, Smallwood and Sproles have the roster made, and Donnel Pumphrey, though he hasn't been productive, is nearly certain to stick as a rookie fourth-round pick. Per, Smallwood played 11 snaps with the starting offense, while Blount only played eight. Blount didn't look that much better from last game, but he looked better.

Thomas struggled with injuries throughout his time in Denver, even in the years when he was playing really well. Thankfully they have one final week of practice to amend technique and communication errors in the secondary that cost them dearly against the Eagles.

Sure Eagles fans should feel beleaguered after all these years of not winning anything, but the fact they keep going back season after season isn't a decision that deserves credit. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (91 is 91 overall), tackle Lane Johnson (90 overall), guard Brandon Brooks (89 overall), and a tie between wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and tackle Jason Peters (87 overall) round out the top-six Eagles players.
