How Deep Is the Relationship Between Wentz and Foles?
It was only fitting that the Philadelphia Eagles would win their first Super Bowl Championship with a backup Quarterback as their MVP Candidate Carson Wentz got injured in Los Angeles in December. Nick Foles led the Eagles to Super Bowl 52 where he became the first backup Quarterback to start less than four games that season since Doug Williams 30 years ago to win Super Bowl MVP. Foles has given Wentz credit for his success on the field, as the two tall Quarterbacks have a great relationship based in large part on their common love for football and God.
ESPN NFL Reporter Sal Paolantonio joined The Sports Bash on Friday discussing the Eagles and the relationship between their Quarterbacks:
“This team is special – I’ve covered a lot of football teams, there’s a real brotherhood on this team, it’s not fake in anyway. That relationship between Carson Wentz and Nick Foles is absolutely (like) two brothers in bunk beds in the same room as kids grown up, that’s how close they are. They don’t fight, they don’t have any envy or jealousy between the two of them, they’re a couple of straight laced dudes who really like each other, hanging out with one other and it’s really great to see.”
