According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, one anonymous Eagles player is very critical of Carson Wentz and the Eagles' offense, which is struggling. 

"With the team being 3-3, an Eagles source also talked to me about how they feel like that offense is functioning," Anderson said on ESPN's NFL Live on Thursday before quoting the source as saying: "'We need to make bleep simpler. Sometimes we need to just handle what is manageable. Even Peyton Manning knew when to check it down.'"

Anderson went on to reveal some numbers of her own about Wentz and the offense:

"Carson Wentz right now is 38-percent on passes that travel 15 air yards, has three interceptions on passes like that, which is tied for most in the league," Anderson said. "He also has 148 passes on those that are 10 yards or fewer, right now he has nine touchdowns and zero interceptions on passes like that so I do think it is an apt point."

On Wednesday evening, Anderson tweeted that the aforementioned player also complained about the team not acquiring Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was traded to the Rams earlier in the week.
