The Philadelphia Eagles traded up to the second pick of the 2016 draft to grab Carson Wentz out of North Dakota State University – making him the highest selected FCS quarterback ever and the only 1st round QB taken by the Eagles this millennium.
With two national titles and a 6’5” frame, the giant ginger had tools and intangibles but needed time to adjust to top-flight competition while sitting behind starter Sam Bradford. Or did he? Quickly the Eagle staff realized they had something special, and though Wentz missed several preseason games he was named the starter and Bradford was traded away. Talk about pressure!
Wentz immediately stepped up – showing poise, skill, leadership, toughness and game management skills that has Philly heading into its bye at 3-0 with no interceptions and soaring pride. A hero is born and a state has been renamed, the City of Brotherly Love is no longer in Pennsylvania, but Wentzylvania!
Grab this new shirt emblazoned with a fictional seal to show your love for the rookie QB and declare your residence in the new State of Wentzylvania!
