The Eagles have an MVP candidate at starting quarterback and a Super Bowl MVP as his backup. It’s a good problem to have (then again, the best problem is no problem at all), but a real question lingers as to when Carson Wentz will be ready to go.
Coach Doug Pederson told Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America that Pederson sees “a little hesitation” in Wentz. “I think that’s natural,” Pederson said. “It’s more about his head than his knee right now.”

This falls in line in what we reported Sunday that Wentz had a rough practice. While many who follow the team feel Wentz will start the season, the Eagles could be in a tough spot. Wentz has worked hard to seemingly be in position to start, but at the same time Foles appears to have not missed a beat during his practice reps.
