Chicago, Illinois – Perhaps running on adrenaline and nervous energy leading up to his first Monday Night Football game, sources have confirmed that Carson Wentz cannot stop quoting lines from the Saturday Night Live recurring “Super Fans” sketch, popularized in the early 90s by George Wendt and Chris Farley.
The recurring sketch, “Bill Swerski’s Super Fans,” popularized the catchphrase “Daaaaaa Bears,” which has become a prominent saying in sports lexicon. Wentz, sources have noted, has approximately said the phrase close to 50 times during the morning walk through, quarterbacks meeting and media session.
“I love Carson, he shows a ton of promise and he’s the leader of this team, but enough already,” said wide receiver Jordan Matthews. “Those sketches are more than 20 years old at this point, we get it. Farley was amazing, but yeah, enough. You don’t have to say Da Bears every time you mention the Bears. We’ve heard it before.”
Several teammates reportedly left the training room this morning when Wentz was seen walking into the facility.
“Love the guy, but I couldn’t hear another joke about how Mike Ditka could beat a hurricane, even if the hurricane was named Hurricane Ditka. It was funny when I heard it the first time in 1993,” Center Jason Kelce said. “I don’t even think he was alive when those sketches first aired.”
At press time, Wentz had notably moved on from the Super Fans and couldn’t stop saying “Schwing!” during his 10 a.m. stretching session.
