“I was actually laying in the middle of a cornfield hunting,” Wentz told the media about the call he received Saturday from Coach Doug Pederson. “I was obviously very surprised, but instantly I was really excited. … We quickly cleaned up and got out of there.”
This obviously raised more questions among reporters who took time out on Labor Day to attend the press conference.
Unfortunately, no one bothered to ask Wentz if the hunt was successful. But maybe that doesn’t matter. The Internet had enough fodder for its memes.
The Eagles will open their season against the Browns on Sunday.
