Are you feeling like the Philadelphia Eagles are officially done? Maybe some former players can lift your spirit!

Hey Philly! It’s time to stop moping around and get back in the spirit of the football season. Now we know the loss of Carson Wentz has been a major bummer, but the last thing he would want is for the city to give up hope. The Philadelphia Eagles are 11-2. They are tied for best record in the NFL, and are all alone in first for the NFC.

Did you forget that the Eagles clinched the NFC East with their win last Sunday? With a win against the New York Giants and a Minnesota Vikings loss, the Eagles can clinch the number one seed as early as this Sunday! Things are still good over here, we just have to believe.

The next man up mentality has been major for the Eagles this season. This is no different when it comes to Nick Foles filling in for Wentz. Sure, we won’t necessarily see highlight reel plays from Foles, but the guy has been here before and knows how to win.

The road to a Lombardi trophy is not an easy road. It never was going to be easy, even with Wentz in. But to win the NFC championship is very doable with a team as complete as the Eagles. If the guy’s over here at ITI can’t encourage you, then maybe some former Eagles can. Take a look at what some former players are saying.

Some words of encouragement:

Brian Dawkins:

Hollis Thomas:

Tra Thomas:

Bobby Taylor:

Win for Wentz:

The former players know that it is not over until it’s truly over. The Eagles will have the next three weeks to prepare to make a run in the playoffs. As for the fanbase, they need to instill a little bit more confidence in this team. Aside from a few major injuries to key players, the Eagles have plenty of talent on the roster to win more games.

Next: Zach Ertz will play against the Giants

Eagles safety and acting captain, Malcolm Jenkins let the team know right after the game last Sunday that they are playing for championships. They already made it this far so why not take advantage of the opportunity? Give this team a shot. They truly have the talent to still do something special this season.
