To call the day we all saw Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz go down sad doesn’t quite describe things accurately enough. It was a low moment. The following Monday afternoon, one of Philly’s sports radio stations, 94 WIP-FM, had to hang up on a listener who called up the Midday Show with Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie and began crying. Yes, you read that correctly. He was crying.

As down as everyone was, most of us were able to find solace in thinking about something we all witnessed and learned by thinking of the New York Giants of all things. The Giants, to win their second Super Bowl, had to do it without the services of their starting quarterback Phil Simms. His replacement, Jeff Hostetler shined in the moment and helped his team deliver the organization another Lombardi Trophy.

No, we didn’t all believe that was the fate of this Eagles team. Things have changed now. They’re in football’s biggest game. They’ve got a shot. If you think this city is in love with Foles now, just imagine what happens if they have the chance to plan a parade.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Super Bowl is less than two weeks away. Sports Illustrated‘s Super Bowl LII preview hits newsstands on January 25th.
