Eleven teams are 0-2 through the first two weeks of the 2020 season, and some poor QB play is no small part of that. But ESPN's Mike Greenberg believes that one QB stands out as the worst through the first two games.

On Thursday's edition of Get Up, Greenberg made the case that Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is the NFL's worst right now. He made the case that Wentz's entire body of work ranks among the worst in the league.

"No one has thrown more interceptions (4), no one has been sacked more (8), and no one has made more off-target throws," Greenberg said. "Since the Eagles were up 17-10 on Washington (in Week 1) the Eagles have scored touchdowns on two of 21 drives."

Mike Greenberg rejected the argument that the Eagles' pass protection isn't holding up. Citing ESPN analytics, he revealed that the Eagles rank fifth in pass protection thus far.

It's a lengthy, data-filled argument being made against the former NFL MVP contender. See for yourself:

Carson Wentz certainly has a lot to prove to the Eagles fan base. Lest we forget, he was not credited with their historic Super Bowl win over New England in 2017. The statue in front of Lincoln Financial Field is of Nick Foles, not Wentz.

But Wentz does have the security of being two years into a four-year, $128 million extension he signed in 2019.

It's possible that Wentz is struggling as many QBs are with the lack of preparation and proper preseason acclimation. But this kind of production isn't sustainable for any QB, not even one of the highest paid in the league.

Is Carson Wentz the worst QB in the league right now?
