Michael Pittman Says Carson Wentz Is On A Mission

Bad teammate? False! After receiving a bad rap in Philadelphia, the Colts appear to be thrilled with Carson Wentz in Philadelphia. One of his primary receivers spoke to the media today. Michael Pittman loves Carson Wentz and claims that he’s on a mission to prove the haters wrong.

“I would say it was like the first or second time that I had thrown with him,” Pittman told reporters during a Tuesday news conference. “We were running post routes and he threw like a 65-yard post, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve really gotta dig down and run.’ So I’d say that his arm strength and probably the way that he works — he’s so dialed in that he is on a mission.”

“I think that’s probably a question for him,” Pittman said. “But I can just tell that he’s so focused on whatever it is — proving himself, winning a Super Bowl, or just whatever it is, he’s just lasered in.”

Pittman would go on to say about Wentz that he doesn’t know where the criticism has come from. He’s been a team first guy from day one since setting foot in the locker room.

“I have no idea what everybody else is talking about. I see a team guy,” Pittman said. “He’s always there, just like ready to help and just do whatever it takes. He’s been a great guy, been a great teammate. So, that’s pretty much all I have to say about that. He’s been great so far.”

Pittman seems like he’s really changed his tune on Wentz. After refusing to give up his number 11, it felt like maybe he wasn’t on board with the trade? Now, that noise has disappeared. It’s hard not to love the Colts this year with Wentz under center. Their upside is so much greater since Philip Rivers departed.
