The Inquirer recently released a scathing report documenting Carson Wentz’s regression this season and his rumored struggle as the Eagles franchise quarterback.

Jeff McLane detailed Wentz’s locker room struggles and highlighted alleged complaints of the Eagles star struggling to accept coaching.

“Wentz’s Type-A personality could be credited just as much for his past success. Many top quarterbacks share the same trait. But the 28-year-old had increasingly rebuffed advice, defied criticism, and clashed with former coach Doug Pederson last season, Eagles sources said. “Every great quarterback wants to be coached and they want to be coached hard and by the best, and it doesn’t seem like [Wentz] wants that,” one source said. “It’s kind of like whoever’s coaching him is working for him. But it can’t be that way.”

The information has been regurgitated over the past two years now, but the biggest takeaway from the report could be the rumor that Howie Roseman keeps a life-sized poster of the Eagles star quarterback in his office.

Howie Roseman had a life-sized poster of Carson Wentz in his office at the NovaCare Complex. It still might be there, but before COVID-19 placed restrictions on Eagles staffers’ movements, when anyone walked into the general manager’s office, there up on the wall was Wentz in action.

The decal — like a Fathead a fan might plaster in his or her bedroom — became an inside joke among some staff about Roseman’s overt affection for the Eagles’ franchise quarterback. But it also became a symbol for his misdirected handling of an employee.

The leaks are rampant and are likely playing a part in several big named candidates passing on the job of resurrecting Wentz’s embattled career at this point.

Roseman’s love of his prized draft pick is being tested and it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
