but in a sick sense, couldnt have happened to a better franchise.
Sucks for Wentz

but I was reminded last night of Howard Eskin making light of Victor Cruz's knee injury a few years ago. You know, karma, bitch, etc.
Shame

F**k the NFL. Shame for Wentz and that's the extent of it.
I may hate the Eagles with the heat of 1000 white hot suns  
Stu11 : 12/11/2017 12:28 pm : link
But don't wish this upon anyone. Hope he recovers fully. Relishing in injuries is bad karma.
Isn't it  
Pete in MD : 12/11/2017 12:32 pm : link
a given that a good Eagles season will end in tragic fashion?
Rivers played through it

Mike Missanelli, not Eskin (although maybe he did too).
That sucks, but I was looking forward to a Nick Foles-Case Keenum  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 12/11/2017 12:35 pm : link
playoff game anyway.
Very sad  
BillT : 12/11/2017 12:35 pm : link
But this is what happens if you have a QB who thinks part of his job is running for positive yards or TDs. You have to be super smart about running in the NFL if you're a QB (See: Wilson, Russell). Wentz went head first into the end zone. TD! Great! Oh, not so great.
Ahh, thanks, you're right.  
bceagle05 : 12/11/2017 12:36 pm : link
When I think Philly dipshits, my mind always wanders right to Eskin.
Most likely  
ryanmkeane : 12/11/2017 12:37 pm : link
puts into question the 2018 season as well right? Well, at least a portion of it

Yea I remember Missanelli tweeted "Hey Giants fans, Victor Cruz is done. Dance to that!". Can't say I feel bad for the Eagles fans. Giants have been hit harder by injuries than anyone.
Hate the Iggles,  
clatterbuck : 12/11/2017 12:40 pm : link
hate them, but Wentz is a budding star, seems like a good kid and this just sucks.

This x 1,000
Lots of injuries

this year to marquee players.

Sucks for Wentz.
after the press conference  
Banks : 12/11/2017 12:44 pm : link
everyone here at work is mourning. For the next couple years, I will hear how this team was more dominant than the 85 Bears and didn't win the SB only cause of a freak injury.
I hate the Eagles with a passion  
BLUATHRT : 12/11/2017 12:50 pm : link
but Wentz is truly a good kid and it sucks for him that this happened in a special season. I wouldn't wish injuries on any player or franchise.
I feel bad for Wentz  
Keith : 12/11/2017 12:55 pm : link
that he's on the Eagles. As far as this injury, it sucks, but it would be worse to see the Eagles win in the postseason.
Bummer.

It could, all depends how his rehab goes, but typically they get these guys ready in 6 months. When i tore mine, they said they could have me going again in 6 months if I really needed to. It took about 18 months to feel 'right' again. I think if Wentz does make it back for week 1 next year, he will struggle for the first half of the year.
Ran into an Eagles fan co-worker of mine 2 weeks ago  
Chris684 : 12/11/2017 1:16 pm : link
as McAdoo was humiliating Eli.

I said "How are you?"

His response was "Better than Eli Manning!"

I hope Eagles fans drown in their sorrow.

Absolutely, as I told an Eagles fan buddy a few weeks ago, this guy just takes too many shots!

Ha-ha. This place is so soft. We get it; youíre all classy gentlemen who donít yell curse words at the TV screen like the average idiot fan. Football isnít what you build your whole landscape of life on. Yeah. Iím going to go cry and feel sad because Wentz was stupid enough to run around as if heís not playing football at the pro level and thinking like this is some high school football game. He has to be smarter than that.

Sometimes I get it, BBI is a place for a smart football discussion and this and that. Thatís why I love posting here and have a lot of fun reading what you guys write. Even the ones who I disagree with; thatís what makes BBI (kind of) fun. I even shamed myself by posting on BBI during the precious Holiday of Thanksgiving, right Mr. Bugless?

However, I guess I will be the guy who falls on the sword and makes this close proximity rivalry fun and jumps up and saysÖ who gives a shit? As others said, I doubt they were emotional when Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham had season ending injuries.

When I go to Giants games (when they matter) and the crowd cheers when the Eagles are losing when they show RedZone highlights, I love that. When I went to the Denver game and KC lost that day and the crowd did that same reaction, I laughed. I said to the Denver fans next to me, I bet they can hear you from 10-12 hours away. I told him how close Philly is to us and NJ is the crossroads of the rivalry.

Some doofus will always tell you ďYouíre in Eagle countryĒ and I say, yeah? What happens when you drive 3 miles north of here and youíre in closer vicinity to MetLife Stadium?
Like the kid.

But he is an Eagle so Good!
Sad to see that. But it's the rest of this season and probably most of  
plato : 12/11/2017 10:49 pm : link
next season. The timing of his injury is horrid for the eagles. Their playoff run and for much of next season, they will be without Wentz depending on how severe his ACL is.
Bummer.
