PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles fans are obviously gushing over Carson Wentz.
But when the opposition praises the rookie QB, it perks yours ears up a bit.
“I think he did a really good job,” Browns Pro Bowl corner Joe Haden told NJ.com after his team’s 29-10 loss to Wentz and the Eagles. “He’s more advanced than I expected him to be. He’s a good quarterback. He stands in the pocket. He makes all of the throws. He’s very patient. He doesn’t just take off running all the time. He looks down and figures out which receiver he wants to go to.”
Wentz connected with second-year receiver Nelson Agholor for a 35-yard touchdown in the third quarter on a beautiful go route beating Haden.
“It was a really good ball,” Haden said via NJ.com. “I have to be on top. I was running with the receiver, it was an outside-shoulder throw, he threw a really good ball. It was a really good play. They made a play right there. It was a good pass and a really good route.”
