Ex-NFL star critical of Colts' Carson Wentz following loss to Jaguars: 'I hate to say it'

Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. didn’t have a very good assessment of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz Friday after the Colts’ upset loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Smith is an NFL Network analyst and appeared on “Pat McAfee” to question whether Wentz was the best choice for the Colts. Smith noted that Indianapolis was dependent on Jonathan Taylor as a running back despite Wentz’s trade for the team. Wentz is owed approximately $15.4 million 2021, and $22 million 2022.

Smith noted that a linebacker who can’t tackle or a cornerback who can’t cover wouldn’t be able to remain on the team they’re on. Smith compared Wentz’s former wide receiver to a bad stock-market investor.

“You bet the farm and traded for him, and you’re telling me we can win a game if we minimize him throwing the ball. So, I’m no longer in football, but I’ll use an analogy all of us understand,” he told McAfee and co-host A.J. Hawk.

“If you buy a stock, and it keeps going down, there’s unrealized and realized gain but at some point you’re gonna have to hit that trigger to sell or you’re just gonna let it go to the bottom and tell your wife, ‘Oh, ya know, I blew our money, but, hey, our financial guy is a good guy. He can’t pick any damn stocks. He just screwed up our kid’s college fund. He messed up all of our money but man, you know he’s a good person. He’s a nice guy. He will look you in the eyes.

Carson Wentz said it. It’s a horrible thing to admit. Carson Wentz is exactly who I’d love my daughter to date BUT playing football.. NOPE.”

For the Colts to reach the playoffs they needed to beat the Jaguars.
