(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: Saludos and Greetings To All of our Rams fans as we enter the NFL’s Week #10 and the much-awaited and welcomed “Bye” week. That certainly can’t be argued it’s just what the team needed to prepare for the second half of the season push to reach the playoffs, solidify their return to a much-expected competitiveness, and a consistent winning form.
With this very timely addition of QB Carson Wentz, the 2017 Philadelphia Eagle Pro-Bowl player & 2nd Team All-Pro, it will definitely give Head Coach Sean McVay some extra re-inforcement and depth at the starting QB position, due to the “game-to-game “situation that Matt Stafford is currently experiencing.
Needless to say, all eyes will be focused on how Coach McVay will use Wentz’s veteran playing and leadership skills once he steps onto the field wearing his new Ram uniform. We’ll most certainly get the chance to observe that when the Seattle Seahawks come into SoFo Stadium on Sunday, November 19th to face the Rams. Read the team’s press backgrounder on Wentz’s NFL career, just below the infographic.
The 30-year-old Wentz most recently played for the Washington Commanders, completing 172 of 276 pass attempts for 1,755 yards with 11 touchdowns against 9 interceptions while starting in eight of nine games played during the 2022 season.
Prior to spending last season with the Commanders, Wentz started all 17 regular season games for the Colts in 2021, completing 322 of 516 passing yards for 3,563 yards with 27 touchdowns against seven interceptions after Indianapolis acquired him in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The North Dakota State product originally entered the NFL as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft by the Eagles and played his first five seasons in Philadelphia, completing 62.7 percent of his pass attempts for 16,811 yards with 113 touchdowns against 50 interceptions. His best season with the Eagles was in 2017, when he completed 265 of 440 pass attempts for 3,296 yards with 33 touchdowns against 7 interceptions en route to Pro Bowl and Second-Team All-Pro recognition.
Overall, Wentz has thrown for 22,129 yards with 151 touchdowns against 66 interceptions across 93 games (92 starts) in seven NFL seasons. He has also rushed 337 times for 1,362 yards and 10 touchdowns.
