Joe DeCamara Drops Epic Carson Wentz Rant

“Ritchie didn’t disagree that Wentz stinks right now, but he also doesn’t want to excuse the head coach of any blame.”

Sometimes there is no wrong answer. SportsRadio 94WIP’s midday hosts Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie may have proved it Monday, when one wanted to fault quarterback Carson Wentz for the Eagles listless offense and the other blamed head coach Doug Pederson.

Even as a leading MVP candidate in 2017, it wouldn’t have been crazy to predict Philly would be ready to give up on Wentz just three years later. But what would have seemed crazy was the fact that Philly might not be overreacting in their desire to give up on what used to be one of the league’s most promising young players. 

It’s not an overreaction to claim Wentz stinks right now, because he does and DeCamara made that clear Monday. DeCamara’s rant came a day after the Eagles beat the rival Cowboys and a day after they built on their first-place lead in the abysmal NFC East. But tired of hearing Ritchie point the blame at the head coach, DeCamara unleashed on Wentz, claiming he’s not long for the starting quarterback job in Philly. 

“Jon, he stinks!” DeCamara exclaimed to Ritchie. “Everyone listen to me. Carson stinks! Everybody listen to me. Carson Wentz is horrible. He is a terrible starting quarterback in the NFL. I cannot take this anymore. The guy stinks! Alright, he’s horrible!”

“I told you after the second game this year that Carson was not going to be the quarterback in 2022,” DeCamara added. “And a lot of people thought I was crazy and that’s fine, you can have whatever opinion you want. Carson is not going to be the quarterback in 2022, he might not even be the quarterback in Week 16 this year if they actually have a shot, which they’re going to. This is insane, how bad he’s been. It is insane.”

Ritchie didn’t disagree that Wentz stinks right now, but he also doesn’t want to excuse the head coach of any blame. 

“It’s insane that you somehow have blinders on that absolve Doug of any culpability here,” Ritchie said.

This rant should live in infamy on WIP, with DeCamara’s “Carson stinks” proving worthy of long-lasting drops.

Joy Taylor Says Aaron Rodgers Is More Likeable After Pardon My Take Appearance

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
