CBS Sports’ Evan Washburn Talks Carson Wentz, Eagles


WELCOME BACK. THE EAGLES WITH PRESEASON GAME NUMBER THREE TONIGHT AT LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD WHERE THEY WILL BE TAKING ON BALTIMORE RAVENS. SPORTS DIRECTOR DON BELL JOINS WITH US MORE FROM THE LINC. HI THERE, DON. HI GUYS, THANK YOU. I’M JOINED BY ED WASHBURN FROM CBS. YOU KNOW HIM. HE COVERS BASICALLY THE LEAGUE ON THE SIDELINES. SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE FOR THIS GAME TONIGHT. I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE EVOLUTION OF PRESEASON FOOTBALL. GROWING UP, THIRD GAME WAS LIKE YES, YOU WATCH STARTERS, MAYBE IN THE THEIR, THAT IS IN THE THE CASE ANYMORE. THAT IS NOT. WE HAVE COME TO A HEAD. IT IS RELYING ON THE CBA. THERE IS NO PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE FIX IN THE IMMEDIATE. WHAT IT IS DOGGIES FORCING US ALL TO THINK ABOUT AND COACHES, GMS AND OWNERS TO THINK ABOUT HOW DO WOW MAKE THIS WORK FOR EVERYBODY. HERE’S MY IDEA AND I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I HAVE DONE PRESEASON GAME. YOU COME TO THE SHOW AND BRING IDEAS. YES. I LOVE IT. WE KNOW JOINT PRACTICES ARE THE IN VOGUE THING. EAGLES JUST HAD THEM WITH THE RAVENS. THIS IS SECOND SET THEY HAVE HAD. THEY DID IT WITH THE JAGS A FEW WEEKS AGO. SO FOUR PRESEASON GAME. YOU WHACKED TWO. EVERY TEAM HAS TO DO TWO JOINT PRACTICES WE MAKE A TWO AND A HALF HOUR TELEVISION SHOW AROUND EACH JOINT PRACTICE. WHAT FANS MIGHT IN THE NECESSITY IS THAT THE PRESEASON IS VERY VALUABLE FOR BOTH TEAMS ON THE TV RIGHTS TO THEM SO THEY CAN AIR THEM LOCALLY, ADD DOLLARS AND GAME. MIGHT NOT BE A FULL STADIUM BUT THEY MAKE MONEY BY PEOPLE WHO DO COME TO THESE GAMES. YOU HAVE THESE JOINT PRACTICES IN THE STADIUM, TWO AND A HALF HOUR TELEVISION SPECIAL, COACHES I SAY THEY DENT WANT ALL 22, THE TEAM PERIODS FULLY LIVE WITH CAMERA. YOU CUTAWAY AND GET TO INDIVIDUAL DRILLS. YOU WERE OUT THERE THIS WEEK, INDIVIDUAL DRILLS ARE EXCITING FOR FANS. IMAGINE GETTING TO SEE SOME OF THE TOP WIDE RECEIVERS GO ONE ON ONE WITH TOP DBS, LINEBACKERS PICKING UP RUNNING BACKS IN THE BLITZING PERIOD. IT IS TWO TV SHOWS, WE GET OUR FOUR AND EVERYBODY WALKS AWAY HAPPY. I LIKE THAT IDEA. IF YOU DO THAT AND YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY HAVE A GATE AS WELL. YOU CAN HAVE FANS COME WATCH THIS THING LIVE AND IT IS A LIVE TELEVISION SHOW AS WELL. CBS EXECUTIVE, LISTENING. LOOK AT THAT. WE ONLY HAVE, TWO. I DID ONE ON SUNDAY. I GOT ONE ON FRIDAY. TOMORROW NIGHT. YES. SO LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THIS BEFORE WE LET YOU GO. CARSON WENTZ. WE’RE CRAZE BYE HIM HERE IN PHILADELPHIA HE HAS HAD INJURY ISSUES OVER LAST TWO SEASONS. IS WHAT NATIONAL PERCEPTION OF CARSON WENTZ. IT IS JUST THAT HE IS A FRANCHISE CALIBER QUARTERBACK. WE HAVE SEEN TONIGHT A LONG ENOUGH PERIOD OF TIME WHERE HE WAS ON THAT MVP PACE. THAT IS REAL. THAT IS WHO HE IS AT HIS BEST. WE CANNOT IGNORE HIS INJURY HISTORY. IT FALLS MORE IN THE CATEGORY OF HOW WILL EVOLVE AS A PLAYER, AND MATURE TO KNOW WHAT HE CAN AND CANNOT DO. HE IS SO GIFTED PHYSICALLY. HE IS SUCH A PHYSICAL FAT BALL PLAYER. HE IS NOT JUST A QUARTERBACK BUT HE IS A GUY, WHO CAN MAKE A PLAY ON HIS OWN. MAYBE LINE SOMEBODY UP. ANDREW LUCK DEALS WITH THIS AS WELL. HE IS SUPER TALENTED. BUT KNOWING HOW TO AVOID THE HIT. THAT IS WHAT MAKES TOM BRADY SPECIAL. KNOWING WHEN TO SAY WHEN, AND IT IS TIME FOR TO US SAY WHEN BECAUSE WE’RE OUT OF TIME. THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. THANKS FOR HAVING ME YOU WILL CALL IT FOR RAPENS, AND YOU CAN CATCH, EVAN ON CBS EVERY SUNDAY, ON THE SIDELINES. THAT IS STORY FROM THE LINC,
