“No one talks about Foles. Foles doesnt get any respect.”

What is said in here is BS. Every single media outlet has blown their load over Foles and the Eagles for the last 5 days. Sick of seeing this crap it’s all about them and their precious QB!! I think it’s about time our boys see more of what they saying too. I think it’s time our boys start getting really sick of all this fawning and upset predictions. And Sunday, I think it’s time we lay a damn 50 Berger on them and shut their big arrogant mouths up for good!

They are desperately searching for extra motivation.

The truth is, Foles has been pumped up far more this week than Brees and it's not even close.

Yup 100%. It’s been close to 90% eagles talk all week. In the talk o have seen on our boys I haven’t even heard Drew’s name.

They are trying every trick in the book to give themselves false hope. It’s sctually pathetic but moreso, when they get hit with reality, the fall is gonna be even harder for them! And that smells like a route to me

Um, gee, everything I heard this week is "St. Nick". And Christmas is over so I don't think they're talking about Santy Claus.

I'm so sick of it already. I can't stand the NFC east and the artificial story lines for ratings. I know Foles is a good guy. But I hope the Saints embarrass the Eagles again and leave whoever else comes with no doubt who is the favored team.

Two days from now, Foles haters will either be scratching their heads (how'd that happen?) or will have moved onto Dak/Goff hating. What's the point?

Let them talk. Nothing will save them from what’s coming. Yes, they won the Super Bowl last year but they got there playing every game at home. The level of noise and hostility they are about to face, they are not prepared for.

I find it funny that the eagles have this obsession to manufacture this us vs. the world theme, seems like a desperate attempt to replay last years movie.

That's fine. Don't talk about Brees, don't study him, don't prepare for him. Just keep being infatuated with that duck throwing backup that's won you what, 4 games this year? Next week you won't be doing any talking because the media doesn't care when you're sitting on your couch.

Hulkamania isn't the only thing running wild. Confirmation bias is all over that action too.

We see all the Nick Foles talk as annoying and something we're sick of because fabricating a chip to put on our shoulder is seen as giving us an edge to play harder.

Meanwhile, Eagles fans are doing the same with Brees and the running up the score thing to create their own shoulder chip.

I think that's exactly what it is.

They rode that underdog role all the way to the Super Bowl. But they didn't win because they were underdogs. They won because they had an outstanding football team surrounding Foles and they had the 1-seed and HFA, then put together a pristine gem of a game in the SB.

They may come in and play the perfect game and beat us. But the team surrounding Foles isn't quite as good this year and they're in the Dome.

The mentality isn't what won them the Super Bowl last year and it's not what's going to decide who wins Sunday.

I don't get this Foles love fest at all.

Okay, they won in Chicago. They only put up 16 points though. Foles went 25/40 for 255 yards 2 tds and 2 picks, which is alright but it's not anything magical. When the Saints put up 16 points they ask what's wrong with Brees, despite all the comebacks and game winning drives he makes. But it's FOLESMAGIC ALL THE WAY BABY!!!

Saints defense is not that much worse than Chicago, and we know what that offense is capable of... especially when healthy. That rarely gets mentioned.

I hope we beat them so bad, make Foles look so inept that these people hanging all over Foles come back and are forced to admit they got swept up in a fairy tale of lies and they're embarrassed by it.
