With a new city and jersey to represent, and with a game against his former team approaching, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles continues to keep things classy.
Even with him taking the podium at a Jacksonville Jaguars press conference as their starting quarterback, Nick Foles still feels like a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Sometimes, we wonder if he feels the same way. Tell the truth. Don’t we?
‘The Birds’ have the Jags on their preseason schedule, and as you’s expect, someone who was, perhaps, attempting to coerce Foles into saying something negative (probably to find a quote where he could get a story written), saw his attempt shot down by the only person on planet Earth who could say he led Philly to the Lombardi Trophy and won Super Bowl MVP honors in the process.
Carson Wentz has been asked how life is without Foles, and he’ll, no doubt, hear that question several more times before it’s over. ‘Saint Nick’ was asked about whether some trash talk towards his old team was in the not-so-distant future, and you can imagine how that question was answered.
Here’s a quote from his most recent presser. This via the Jags’ official website:
"That’s not really my style, and they know that as well. I’m sure they’re going to have a little bit of trash talk just to have fun with me. You build relationships through the years so I have great relationships in that organization. It will be fun to compete against them. It will be fun in warmups and be fun to be across from them and ultimately that’s what this game is all about."
The Eagles and Jags both started their offseason workout program this week, and even though we haven’t even reached the 2019 NFL Draft yet, everyone’s already debating the league schedule, both preseason and the regular season.
A matchup that features two quarterbacks who were both teammates and remain very good friends is all anyone needs to find a few talking points, whether that be on social media or in the break room at work. Foles is keeping it friendly. None of us should be surprised about how classy he’s been.
