Eagles defend QB Carson Wentz amid report he's 'selfish'

Multiple star players on the Philadelphia Eagles have defended Carson Wentz on Twitter after the Philly Voice published a report in which team sources describe the quarterback as being "selfish," "uncompromising" and "egotistical."

The Philly Voice report, published Monday morning, cites more than half a dozen Eagles players and other sources close to the team.

The report describes an uneasy dynamic within the Eagles organization, with sources accusing Wentz of playing "favorites" and failing "to take accountability" while describing Foles as "universally loved." Of course, Foles came on in 2017 and led the Eagles to the Super Bowl before again coming on in relief of Wentz this season and rallying the team to the playoffs and a win over the Bears. Wentz was an MVP candidate before getting hurt in 2017, and the team announced Wentz is their long term plan to be the starter going forward. Foles isn't expected to return to the team in 2019.
