The 5-5 Eagles have enough things on their team to worry about, but one of them can’t possibly be in-fighting within their own team – can it?
There’s speculation that wide out Nelson Agholor is taking shots at quarterback Carson Wentz, using a burner twitter account to take shots at the former first overall pick.
The burner account criticized Wentz and said former Eagles QB Nick Foles throws a better ball. Here’s some screen shots of the account from Eagles Nation:
There is SPECULATION going around that Nelson Agholor POSSIBLY has a burner account (@efam33.)
Every tweet on the account is defending Agholor, and saying the blame of his struggles falls on Wentz. He even uses “us” in many cases.
What do you think? ?

Agholor came out and denied that he had anything to do with the account.

“Social media is a place where you can influence for the positive but once the energy isn’t helpful, there’s no need for it,” said Agholor.
“I have to focus on the Eagles, the guys in this locker room, and our loyal fans who need us to play well, and I have to have positive energy. It’s part of eliminating distractions.
“I hadn’t been on there, wasn’t really active on there. It was my family that was telling me about it. So I was like this makes no sense. They don’t need to be worried about that, so it was unneeded.”
