Should Carson Wentz still be considered for NFL MVP?
When Carson Wentz went down, a collective groan came Eagles fans across the country.... because they knew their Super Bowl chances were dashed. That is how important Wentz is to the franchise. He led the NFL in touchdowns and was the driving force behind the Eagles' rise to the top the NFC. Wentz is the MVP of this season.
Wentz was definitely having an MVP-caliber season, but people don't win Most Valuable Player when they miss three games. The only person to do that was Joe Montana, and Wentz doesn't look like one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
There are other players who have stayed healthy that are more deserving of the awards—like Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger or Russell Wilson who are leading their respective teams to the playoffs. Better luck next year, Wentz.
