On Aug. 11 of last year, with Philadelphia fans eager to see their new franchise player in uniform for the first time, Wentz entered the Preseason opener against Tampa Bay at Lincoln Financial Field as the No.
So the preseason gives him a chance to respond to different downs and distances, to elude a live pass rush, to find his targets when the defense’s call is unclear.
But his favorite player was Brett Favre, who played for the Packers from the time Wentz was born to past his 15th birthday.
But Wentz’s Lambeau vantage point Thursday will more closely resemble that of Doug Pederson – a former Packers backup – than Favre, who was on the tundra.
So he’s realistic about the experience, and his friends and family won’t make the trek from North Dakota even though it would be the shortest road trip of the season for them.
