Former veteran RB Tikki Barber says the Eagles’ Carson Wentz ‘is probably the worst teammate you could possibly have’.


The former New York Giants certainly have a sense of irony calling Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz a bad teammate, calling back Tiki Nye.

Ultimately, Barber did no favors over former head coach Tom Coughlin and ex-teammate Eli Manning with post-retirement jobs.

Yet Barber was on “Tikki & Tierney” on Monday, taking a shot at Wentz, who asked to be saddened by losing his starting job in Philadelphia to capitalize QB Jalan Hurts. Per WFAN:

“Carson Wentz is probably the worst teammate you could possibly ever be. Here’s the problem: There is a narrative around Carson Wentz that he’s never as good a man as he could possibly be or potentially be.” Is. This puts the Eagles in a completely impossible position. “

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson announced on Monday that Hurts would start Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. This will be Hurts’ third straight start, meaning it will be Wentz’s third straight game and his $ 128 million contract will ride Pine.

And Barber says the Eagles are “left in a no-win situation.” The only thing that could help Carson Wentz would be to come out and say, ‘Jalan Hurts is playing great, he’s entitled to start right now, we’ll have a great quarterback fight next season.’ He needs to say something like that. Otherwise this thing can be really, really ugly and disruptive and divisive in the locker room and the front office. “
