Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie on signing Nick Foles

Watch: The faces and places at the Super Bowl Tuesday

Jerry Sullivan: Pats embrace the undrafted and underestimated

Even though Reid failed to win the big game during his 14-year tenure in Philadelphia, he won more games than any coach in franchise history and led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, five NFC title games and a Super Bowl loss to the Patriots. "So you've got to think back to what got you here: doing your job, not getting overwhelmed and what not". That doesn't seem fair.

Sunday will mark Mills' first time facing Brady. But the other half of the Eagles' starting defensive backs play with more of a chip on their shoulders.

Tom Brady was in a playful mood Tuesday as he offered an olive branch to the radio personality who insulted his 5-year-old daughter during a radio broadcast last week. "I told him, it's going to work out for him, but he said, 'I want to earn it.' What a great response".

But there were no complaints, even the ones who took the Polar Plunge.

Given his unexpected defense of Manning, Johnson was asked to rate the quarterbacks in the NFC East, but he refused to take the bait.

That was Favre's only Super Bowl win, and he threw for two touchdowns and 246 yards that day. "When we go through game film and we go through everything, he's an extremely intelligent player, so I listen to everything that he says". But signs point to Gronkowski playing Sunday, and he will clearly be on Philadelphia's radar if he does.

"Two years ago the plan was to acquire a quarterback", Eagles coach Doug Pederson said.

Last year, Clodfelter, Bethel's coach, predicted the New England Patriots would beat the Atlanta Falcons by a final score of 34-28.

But when Foles was a rookie drafted in the third round of the 2012 to the Eagles out of Michigan State, he had another quarterback that helped in his development, Michael Vick.

"We're going to need a big game from him".

The Giants were certainly able to do that in their two Super Bowls against Brady and the Patriots.

Does it feel like an upset pick? The following season, he stumbled to a 4-7 record under Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams. Then, they came out and destroyed Minnesota thanks to the arm of Nick Foles and the legs of Jay Ajayi. He is digging in, just one win away from bringing the Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia.

And hope his brothers like Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox and Vinny Curry become as well-known to the general public as they are to football insiders. "He's been to eight Super Bowls in 17 years".

The Philadelphia Eagles have officially kicked off the most intense week of the season on Monday. "It's obviously a very important part of my body, for a quarterback, so I just want it to be as healthy as possible for the game on Sunday", he said.
