“Not only do you get the line and the running game, you get a fresh start, a cleanliness, a dome, rank. Everything is perfect.

Carson Wentz set up to succeed

Since the situation is very good for Wentz in Indianapolis, he is not expected to struggle with the franchise. He is set up in the best position possible to try to recover from his poor season last year.

However, the quality of the environment is a two-edged sword as he may not have an excuse if things were to fall apart.

“So I actually do have confidence because of how good it is and how bad it was last year. But I’m a little worried because if this doesn’t work, then this thing is unraveling really fast. You can’t get a better situation than this there are no excuses.”
