Carson Wentz was Goose Hunting When He Found Out He Would be Starting QB


You got to like a guy who, while receiving possibly the biggest news of his life, was lying in the middle of a cornfield goose hunting.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz found out that instead of sitting on the bench for the season, he was going to be given the keys to the offense, and be the team’s starting signal caller THIS season.

The Eagles traded their previous starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, to the Minnesota Vikings just before week 1 of the 2016 NFL season, which has paved the way to starter town for Mr. Carson Wentz.

It seems like everyone always wants to know where you were when “such and such” happened, and according to NFL Network broadcaster, Andrew Siciliano, Carson said “I was laying in the middle of a cornfield hunting.” I’m sure that struck some as odd, but for us hunters we give a tip of the cap and a big thumb’s up to you, Carson.

It should be noted that Wentz grew up in North Dakota and played for the North Dakota State Bison. That should spell it out for you right there. Carson is just an ordinary guy – who happens to be able to throw a pigskin really well – but whenever he can, he devotes his time to getting outdoors.

Wentz will be under center when Philadelphia takes the field Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Sorry, Carson, no goose hunting for you this weekend; you have to score some touchdowns on Sunday instead.
