At a time when low-level dot connection suggests the Colts could be the best place for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz to make a fresh start, there is reason to believe that Wentz would indeed thrive in Indianapolis.

FOX analyst Daryl Johnston worked on Sunday’s game between the Eagles and Saints, and he made an interesting observation on the Wentz broadcast.

I think he really misses Frank Reich, more than many people are willing to admit, ”said Johnston. “I think there was a bond and bond based on their strong Christian faith, which pushed them beyond the coach-teammate relationship.”

The dance has already begun on the possibility that Wentz is being traded to the Colts. The Eagles have made it known that they want to keep Wentz, an important first step in maximizing Philly’s influence. In turn, Reich (who served as offensive coordinator with the Eagles before becoming head coach of the Colts) has said that 39-year-old Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has several good years left in football, an important first step in maximizing Indy’s influence. .

Regardless of whether the Colts and Reich play for Wentz, here’s a certainty: If Reich isn’t interested in a reunion with Wentz, any other team considering the possibility of taking over Wentz should act lightly.
