Listen: Philadelphia Eagles, Mitch Trubisky And Eagles discussed on WAOK Programming
"When the going gets tough. You see the tough crumble. But that's not how it is. For the Philadelphia Eagles and a big part of it. Is that they went through it last year. A big part of it is they had to survive the loss of their MVP candidate star quarterback a year ago, not to mention a bunch of other injuries. And it looked like for a while the season, they weren't going to survive. The rash of injuries specifically to their secondary that they were dealt. Except that the leadership and the character shines through. Nick foles takes over. They beat the Rams. They prevent the Texans from winning the AFC south foles has a career high four hundred seventy one passing yards, and there's no denying as they've gone through this last six weeks and now into Soldier Field. The team response to falls they have an unbelievable confidence in him. He doesn't always do the right thing. He had to first half interceptions. But you see the team respond. They wanna give this guy a chance and they want to be out there on the field with an opportunity and how about the eagles defense in the first half alone. The defense prevents the bears from scoring more than a field goal on those two interceptions. So that's it turnovers can be a killer in the playoffs. But the defense covered up those mistakes by foles in the offense and gives up a mere three points. That's it three points off those turnovers. So they get to have time. The teams are a combined over three in the red zone. The defence is ruling. In fact, the eagles nearly had a couple of interceptions off, Mitch Trubisky. And speaking of that eagles secondary boy gonna get torched a few times. Unexpected deep throws by Trubisky. Raise your hand. If you thought Mitch Trubisky with throw for three hundred yards and the bears would lose. The defense played worthy of a win. But so do the eagles defense. So we had that bears. Touchdown drive that featured three passes that one at least nineteen yards and the secondary from Philadelphia was reeling. Eagles. Get the ball back down. Fifteen ten what a weird football score with four forty eight left in the fourth quarter and foles goes to work. And what do you see you? See calm. You see poise. You see him moving the ball around spreading the ball around. You know, what it reminded me of the way Tom Brady orchestrates a late. Touchdown drive. And no, I'm not comparing Tom Brady to Nick foles resume. I'm telling you that lasts drive. Looked like the way Tom Brady would engineer. A late game drive. Spreading the ball around keeping the defense off balance. He used four different receivers to get to the two yard line. And give them credit. They spun out of tackles. They got yards after the catch. They did whatever they could to keep that drive alive. And then of course, you get down on the goal line advantage Chicago Bears. So they try to run the ball twice at what happens. Nothing. Darren sproles goes nowhere against that. Chicago defense. Except this is the champs, and it's really really difficult to knock out the champs, even when they're facing a fourth and goal. The Chicago."
