The Philadelphia Eagles will forever be the Super Bowl LII Champion.
Now I’m sure that has a ring to it for most of you. What an accomplishment, from losing our MVP hopeful QB Carson Wentz to a season ending injury, then losing our Pro-Bowl left tackle, Jason Peters to an almost identical injury, our Eagles have proven everyone wrong to claim the title of Super Bowl Champion.
Our Eagles were underdogs in every single playoff game they played including their Super Bowl victory against the “GOAT”, Tom Brady and the Patriots. According to ESPN, when head coach, Doug Pederson, was asked when everyone started doubting the Eagles he replied, “When did Carson go down? Since that point, no one’s given us a chance….I understand Carson’s a great player, but every week our guys are hearing the same thing. Now, all of a sudden, we’re not good enough? We’re 13-3, best record in football, home field advantage throughout.” And boy was he right.
The dragon has been slain, the Eagles have conquered the almighty dynasty of Bill Belichick & Tom Brady, when no one thought that they would even get there in the first place. The picture below can sum it all up.
But now what?
We certainly don’t want to stop here and just take a step back now that Philadelphia has their first Super Bowl ring ever. Oh no, the Eagles have something special brewing in Philly and there’s going to be a lot of winning football here over the next several years.
First off, get healthy, we just won the Super Bowl with a backup quarterback and a backup left tackle, arguably the two most important positions on the entire field.
Next, figure out the Super Bowl LII MVP, Nick Foles situation. He just won you the first Super Bowl in franchise history, but the Philadelphia Eagles already have their quarterback of the future in Carson Wentz, right?
Right, and don’t forget it Philly, we’re talking about the leader of the regular season MVP race before an injury ended his season. Foles was obviously a superb replacement and could very well be in an Eagles uniform under center for the season opener next season, depending on Wentz’s recovery. Foles is going into year two of his two-year contract, the Eagles could very well trade him away and save more than $5 million in cap space, but no one knows if Carson will be ready to go come next year, or even how he will perform after surgery.
Eagles fans, be patient and enjoy the moment while you have it, but I will say don’t get used to seeing Foles in an Eagles uniform, because after that performance, there are several teams that would be glad to pay him a hefty raise.
