No matter what happens to Dak, it will never get old, knowing that we beat the Eagles and their first round #2 quarterback, with our fourth round backup pick. LOL

If anyone can get him on track, it's Andy Reid. I don't know what the heck happened to Wentz. So bizarre.
What I think happened was Wentz never overcoming the disappointment of being injured during what would have been an MVP season and watching Foles lead Philly to their first and only SB win. Wentz never recovered from that. He began losing his confidence and it was downhill from there.

Now he has the easiest backup NFL quarterback job anyone ever heard of.

He can’t help himself and he plays hero ball. Holds onto it looking for the big play instead of working within the framework of the O.

He actually looked OK with the Rams but he still falls into bad habits too easily.

It’s not that easy, it’s a one year deal and he’s going to have to compete for the backup job. This is probably going to be his last opportunity to stay in the league.

If KC were comfortable with Oladokun and Book as reserves they would not have contacted Wentz.

They’re looking to add some competition. The only appealing thing about Wentz is he’s had some starting experience. The way Wentz’s career has spiraled downward there isn’t a lot to feel comfortable about with him.

Wentz making a career out of one year deals as a backup. That would be Dak's fate also, if it weren't for the Jones Boyz.
Please. Wentz and Dak are nothing alike. Wentz would be alright if he wasn’t a locker room cancer something Dak is not.

He’s started 100 games. Trey Lance has “some starting experience”. You don’t need to sign a quarterback with eight years experience if all you want is “to add some competition” for the backup QB position.

Wentz has talent, he's just a PITA that doesn't take accountability for anything.

Geno Smith was a guy who was kind of like that... his own teammate broke his jaw, and everyone agreed he deserved it. In his own words, he realized his career was almost over by the time the Chargers released him, and Seattle would be his last chance in the NFL. He humbled himself, put in the work, and actually became a really decent starting quarterback.

Maybe Wentz has had that kind of come-to-Jesus moment as well, and if he's willing to stop playing hero ball and play within structure, he could still be a really useful player. Even if he hasn't, he's a better player than your average Colt McCoy QB2 type floating around the league.

Let me rephrase it. Wentz has started a lot of games. That’s what most teams are looking for in a backup. It’s not worth arguing. :rolleyes: As for Trey Lance he wasn’t available.

He’s not chasing a ring. He already has one. No quarterback that thinks they can develop to a point they can be a starting quarterback in the NFL will sign with KC. They know they’ll never get on the field. Wentz knows that ship has sailed for him. He has experience with various teams learning different offenses and won’t whine about not playing. Few backup QBs in the league have a winning record as a starter with 47 wins. Plus, he accepts the minimum amount the NFLPA allows him to be paid and is willing to sign a one year deal. He’s now personally wealthy and is smart enough to move himself toward maximum pension benefits. Ninth year in the NFL. Not a great player, but a smart one.
good points, and I have to agree he is being smart.

Wentz is a sad clown right now. The Colin Cowturds of the world will celebrate Wentz STILL, even as a back up. He knows Dak is way better. Wentz will get a SB ring as a Chief, without playing a down. Then the pundits will say how great he is compared to Dak.

Wentz now with his fifth team in 9 years. (Bradford on 4 teams in his 9 seasons.)
Eagles 2016-20
Colts 2021
Commanders 2022
Rams 2023
Chiefs 2024
Can Wentz now be referred to as an NFL "journeyman"?
If going from place to place had anything to do with being a journeyman, sure. But, it doesn't.

That is the definition of the word \ term when alluding to pro sports.
A player who's not a star, and has not accomplished much in during a long career, while being with a number of teams.

It's just what people assume it means, not what it actually means. At least the team to team part. A journeyman can be on one team his entire career.

It’s good for a quarterback to understand his limitations. Wentz is a career backup now. Dak is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, coming off the best season of his career, less than 12 months from free agent status, and has a high powered agent representing him. He is way better than Wentz and will be paid accordingly. Wentz is just a wealthy family man, he only plays football to pay for his hunting expeditions. Making a million dollars a year as a helper. Ammunition is very expensive.
