    From what I had seen in the game last night, the problem wasn’t getting balls tipped at the line but defensive players being able to get a good rush on him to continually hit is arm in the process of throwing. I believe that had happened 3-4 times last night. His passes do get tipped often though.

    Watch Carson's delivery compared to Brady & Brees. Their release is much higher

    I think he's still getting used to everybody being as tall as him, not always the case in college.

    Yep, I was actually referring to arm hits and tipped balls in a tight pocket as being one and the same. I just dont like him in those tight spaces that close to the line of scrimmage at most every snap. He plays sooo well in space, especially when he has room to move outside, maybe the best QB in the NFL in open space. Also, I fear for his long term safety in those shallow closed pockets. His own guys may end up taking one of his legs out, even after a whistle. To me its a common sense change but Oh Well!!!!

    This is the problem. His oline is getting bullrushed right back into him every time. The tackles have been especially bad this season. They need to improve their technique. I saw a stat that he was actually getting rid of the ball faster then the league average and still getting tons of pressure because the oline is so bad. They give him enough time and he will pick defenses apart. Even with all the oline issues and injuries he's actually been better statistically this season. His accuracy has improved considerably as evidenced by his improved completion percentage. That first TD pass last night was insanely good and very few if any other QB's can make that throw on the run.

    THE NUMBER THAT MATTERS: 68.4
    That’s Wentz’s completion percentage through four games. Here are his numbers so far this year compared to last year.
    Comp.% YPA TD/INT Net/pass play
    2017 60.2 7.5 4.7 6.7
    2018 68.4 7.5 8 6.4
    Wentz took just one sack on Thursday night. He’s thrown eight touchdowns and one interception on the season. His completion percentage is up, and his YPA is steady. Take Wentz’s numbers through four starts and extrapolate them over a 16-game season, and you come up with: 4,768 yards, 32 touchdowns and four interceptions.
    Not bad for a guy coming off of a serious knee injury.

    Exactly what I was referring to in regard to his line getting pushed back into his shallow pocket. Deepen the pocket to start and allow him to move up into it when its clean, this also allows for him to slide
    outside as well, where he tends to make his really big plays happen down field. This guy is really special in space.
