Not at the moment, however. We’ll get that out there right away. “Those are my guys”.
“Straight enemy mode, man”, the Philadelphia Eagles running back told reporters Thursday. It ain’t nothing personal. “You just have to control the emotions and whenever the game starts just unleash them”.
Blount muscled through Minnesota’s defense for an 11-yard touchdown during the Eagles’ 38-7 victory Sunday. After all the controversies and stories of tension between Head Coach Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Owner Robert Kraft, the Patriots continue to rise above all the media distractions and keep producing wins on the field. He says strong interest from Philadelphia has kept ticket prices from falling further. “He has our back; we’ve got his back”. It’s going to come down to us getting after them.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots are 5-point favorites to beat the Eagles, who opened as 6-point underdogs following the Conference Championship games.
Pats players have been suspended for PED use over the course of recent memory, one of which included safety Rodney Harrison circa 2007. The Eagles’ defense has only allowed two touchdowns in their two game route to the Super Bowl, only allowing 641 total yards put up against them.
As it turns out, the Eagles made a good decision as well. The five time Super Bowl champion (27-9 in his post-season career) is looking to add his sixth ring to the collection on February 4th. “It has nothing to do with history, one way or the other”. It’s just that the culture there is different. What’s cool to me is a lot of people lived that through me and I’m happy I was able to share that. That’s what makes the Vikings’ loss to the Eagles so much more painful.
However, radio analyst Scott Zolak contested the rumors by saying that Brady’s eight Super Bowl appearance set in a few days will not be his last.
Blount, who led the National Football League with 18 rushing touchdowns with New England past year, led the Eagles with 766 yards rushing but his touches decreased after Ajayi was acquired from Miami. Their run to championship has been a miraculous story, considering starting quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL back in December. “Control your emotions”, Blount said. I’ll never count out Tom Brady, but I don’t think you can count out Philadelphia either.
At least not until after the game. “Ain’t no friends, ain’t no homies. There aren’t any hard feelings, it just is what it is”.
