"I think the person that did the ultimate Gatorade dunk on him (on January 21) was a defensive player, so they care about the guy, and that's an important thing". Even head coach Doug Pederson was under the weather last weekend before taking off for Minneapolis. We're here to play a football game.
The latter happened after he was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the 1995 expansion draft only to be released in May.
On fourth down from the 1 with 34 seconds left in the first half, running back Corey Clement took a direct snap and pitched to tight end Trey Burton, who threw to Foles for a touchdown that gave Philadelphia a 22-12 lead.

When LeGarrette Blount, who won the title last season with the Patriots, scored on a 21-yard burst, Pederson went for 2, but the pass failed, making it 15-3. The former Ferndale quarterback later became an National Football League quarterback, before eventually working his way to the coaching world. "I became a Packers fan when Doug played for the Packers, but if they're playing the Eagles or wherever Doug is at, I'll cheer for them". Pederson also defended that decision. We learned that Pederson loves vanilla ice cream and has to have a banana split. It may not have been a 16-0 season like the media predicted, but a 13-win regular season and strong performances in the playoffs got the Pats to the big game once again. The good news, perhaps, is that Darby remained a full practice participant on Thursday and may still be good to go on Sunday.
Foles has been adept at making the right calls on run-pass option plays, making it even more hard for defenses facing Philadelphia. For me, some people may never care about that stuff see that stuff but for me hes Doug and hes that same guy that coached boys to men and now hes coaching men to hopefully champions.
