9:30 am
e-a-g-l-e-s, eagles! >> chilly or freezing morning. temperatures cannot keep eagles fans from tailgating. the final game of the season is upon us. cowboys, eagles, at the linc to put a bow on the 2016 season. this is "eagles gameday kickoff." >> nbc 10 presents "eagles gameday kickoff." >> hey, everybody, welcome to our final "eagles gameday kickoff" for 2016. this is actually an important game against the cowboys and if the eagles can beat dallas and the bears beat the vikings, the birds would wind up with a better draft pick than the vikings. that is pretty impressive and
9:31 am
weird for that to happen. we're going to wrap up our season with a sit-down, an exclusive sit-down with the rookie quarterback carson wentz. mike quick will do that. and also we're going to take a big picture look at another rookie for 2016, head coach doug pederson, his first year as a head coach. and he talked about what he has learned, and how he will move forward as a better head coach next year. >> locker room report. >> the biggest thing i think is just the, you know, the challenge of getting your team ready to play through adversity. >> adversity wasn't an issue early in the season. >> great job. >> the eagles sprinted out to a 3-0 start. the season included impressive wins over the steelers, falcons and giants. but it also included a five game losing streak, and just one road win. through it all, pederson has kept coaching.
9:32 am
as pederson has kept his eyes focused, there's plenty to reflect on. >> standing in this position, you're the rock of the football team. you're keeping everybody together. and, you know, it's also been sort of a blessing for me, because in this first year, having this type of adversity, it's challenged me. >> all right. hey, nothing's easy, baby. nothing's easy. >> to make sure i'm doing things right, and staying the course, and staying true to what i said to this team way back. it just makes us all better. >> for eagl"eagles gameday kic." >> the philadelphia eagles pick carson wentz. >> sometimes players are so big, at the quarterback position especially, where you have a
9:33 am
chance to change your franchise. >> carson wentz. >> carson, how you doing, bud? >> feeling great. how are you? >> great. ready for the eagles? >> yes, sir. >> bottom line is if you don't have a franchise quarterback in the nfl, it doesn't matter. >> that was a huge moment here in the history of the philadelphia eagles. it looked like they have found their franchise quarterback going forward. and in the final game, carson wentz with three completions will set the all-time nfl rookie record for completions, and he could wind up in the top three for attempts, so a lot has been put on his plate this year in the first year especially when you consider he wasn't even supposed to play originally. let's take a look back at the first year with carson wentz. >> you did it, man. >> in his first start carson wentz delivers. >> touchdown.
9:34 am
the first nfl touchdown pass by carson wentz! what a start! >> his first nfl drive resulted in a touchdown. and that is a start his teammates could see coming. >> great job, baby. back again he's looking. looking down the right side. touchdown! >> the eagles objected from the very beginning, it would keep the rookie. >> hanging up a little bit. >> yeah, yeah. >> it's a high-low type of thing. >> a win over the bears was followed by a blowout win over the steelers. >> to the far side. back goes wentz, he fires,
9:35 am
complete touchdown! you got to be -- >> on course. >> and at the bye week, there was a lot of hype around carson wentz. >> something you may have seen joe biden at the eagles game. he told me barack you got to get on the wentz wagon. >> carson himself went back home to his native north dakota, as a hometown hero. >> really cool. for me, not a lot of kids growing up around there get the opportunity i have. >> after the bye, carson, and the eagles headed to detroit. >> yeah. but carson's first interception of his rookie season put the finishing touch on the eagles first loss.
9:36 am
>> you never enjoy losing. that's just the way it is. it's hard to win in this league. >> and then, difficult late losses against division rivals washington, dallas, and the giants, followed. to the end zone incomplete for jordan matthews. and the giants will hang on. >> a stifling defeat in seattle that game for a monday night showdown. [ indiscernible ] >> well, there's obviously i mean -- >> carson wentz. aaron rodgers, what a beautiful drive on his own. >> but a second half carson wentz interception put the eagles below .500 for the first time and the rookie's worst game of the season follows in
9:37 am
cincinnati. >> we didn't expect to go on a skid like this. you don't plan for it. >> you'll be great, man. >> but the struggle did not diminish carson's standing with his teammates. >> leave this team. leave this team. >> the rookie quarterbackdom lead the birds to a near comeback win over washington near baltimore but he ducked defenders and snapped a five-game slide against the giants. it was a game where he was not busy, but carson fought back. >> these guys, this locker room, you never see them hang their heads. >> seeing the progression of the young quarterback was job one of 2016, and for him to play the entire season, for his teammates, and opponents, there is a lot of reasons to be excited. >> i was talking with him
9:38 am
[ indiscernible ] >> the guys, the most important player on the roster, he gives everything he has each and every day and he's not fazed by the outside noise. >> coming back next year, it won't be new anymore. i won't have to kind of get used to that feeling on sunday that it's already happened. i've been in 16 games already. so i think that's a huge thing that will only help me grow and this offense. >> so here are the numbers for carson wentz this season. on the left there are his numbers through the first three games. 3-0 record. 65% completion percentage five touchdowns and no picks. since then a different story numberswise. 3-9 record, nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions. but the key number is 16 games as in 16 games he will have played when he starts today against the cowboys. and speaking of carson, still to come -- >> i think one of the biggest
9:39 am
things i've learned is how hard it is to win in this league. >> up next, more with the eagles rookie quarterback, as he sits down for an exclusive interview with our mike quinn. a carson exclusive next when "eagles gameday kickoff" returns.
9:40 am
9:41 am
9:42 am
♪ >> up to the middle. hold on a minute. he takes it home for the touchdown! >> he's like my favorite player on the team. this dude comes up to my niece. he can get everybody else to do whatever they want to do. >> oh, yes. welcome back to eagles dame gay kickoff and that touchdown base from carson wentz was our play of the year. and that play really shows all of the qualities and intangibles that carson brings. he changed the play at the line of scrimmage and was able to move out of the pocket and he didn't run with the ball he decided to throw it and what a touch on that pass to darren sproles. carson wentz has a bright future ahead. let's take a look back at his
9:43 am
first year in the nfl as a rookie quarterback with the eagles. mike quick did an exclusive sit-down with carson wentz. >> carson you started out the season in philadelphia in a blaze. first quarter of the season everybody's all crazy, from that point to where you are now, tell me about how that felt, that early in the first quarter, and how you gotten to where you are now? >> obviously we were on an emotional high 3-0 right away to start the year. kind of came out guns blazing. >> he's got it. he's got it. touchdown! touchdown! >> it's tough. it's tough having to deal with some of those losses. being in all of those games, having chances to win, and not sealing the deal late in the ball games, i was frustrated. >> you were 20-3 as a starter at north dakota state. how difficult is it dealing with the nfl, and just getting wins
9:44 am
in the national football league? >> i think that's one of the biggest things i've learned is how hard it is to win. how hard it is to win in this league. week in and week out, everyone brings their best. you know, everybody's a good player. everybody's a good team. so that's one of the biggest things i've learned. it was frustrating dealing with those losses. but it never really changed me. >> i felt that your coach about your approach and he talks about how you put the time in, and how it's almost an obsession for you. i think the great ones are like that. when did it become that for you? >> probably senior high school. i always love the games. in fact i was in first grade bringing the football to recess. i was always the guy, organizing teams. playing quarterback. but senior in high school is when i really kind of fell in love with it to another level. i grew up playing baseball, hockey, football became my passion. later in high school, then into college, i took that same approach that i have now all through college and i think
9:45 am
that's helped me get where i am today. >> looking. he's looking. he is rolling. he's going to tuck it and run. he is in the end zone. touchdown carson wentz! >> talk about the competition and how you love to compete versus love of the game. and how different or are they different? >> i think they're different but they're the same at the same time. i think the love of the game, part of it to me is the competition. is the competitiveness that you can have out on the field. and the love of the game also is just the camaraderie amongst a bunch of guys. you have a locker room of guys from all over the country, all over the place, come to the for a common goal. you can't put that into words. i know you've been there, mike. it's something you really can't describe that makes this game so much more enjoyable. >> i got that one right there. >> oh, this one if i get down
9:46 am
there at the 3 i'm coming to that. >> i know that you want to finish the season with a win at lincoln financial field. what else do you want to accomplish in that final game against the cowboys? >> obviously want to win, but i think the biggest thing is to keep take being steps forward together. receivers, running backs, defense, special teams want to go into this off-season with a lot of momentum and i think winning two nfc games will do that for us. >> that's going to be fun. >> and touchdown malcolm jenkins. >> no safety in football has more interceptions returned for touchdowns than our man malcolm. malcolm jenkins gives us final thoughts on 2016. and looks ahead to the team's future when "eagles gameday kickoff" rolls on. be noisy.

9:50 am
