Everything Titans fans need to know about the Colts trade for Carson Wentz
By Will Lomas
Titans get to play against Carson Wentz.
Tennessee Titans fans, welcome Carson Wentz to the AFC South and meet your new favorite quarterback.
Carson Wentz is a player that Titans fans might not know a lot about because there just isn’t a lot of crossover between the AFC South and the NFC East. The last time that some Titans fans saw Wentz was when Marcus Mariota was leading Tennessee to an overtime win at home against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Since then, Wentz’s tape has only gotten worse.
While his numbers over the last three seasons don’t look bad, when you break them down year-by-year you see a very concerning trend.
Let’s look at four big quarterback stats over those three years: TD%, INT%, average net yards per attempt, and sacks percentage. You may notice that all of these stats exclude total volume, and that is because Wentz has missed nine games over the last three years, so this is the only fair way to compare.
2018: TD%: 5.2, INT%: 1.7%, ANY/A: 6.89, sack%: 7.2%
2019: TD%: 4.4, INT%: 1.2%, ANY/A: 6.26, sack%: 5.7%
2020: TD%: 3.7, INT%: 3.4%, ANY/A: 3.98, sack%: 10.3%
Every single number was much worse in 2020 compared to 2018 and in most cases, the numbers steadily fell year by year.
This is a very bad sign for the Colts because they made a deal the is only a good deal for them if they are getting the 2019 version of Carson Wentz. Even then I’m not sure they got a good value for reasons I will talk about now…
