An Eagles fan has gone viral after being spotted Monday at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport with a purple plastic seat from U.S. Bank Stadium following Super Bowl 52.
According to the Star Tribune, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority security team is investigating the theft after the fan was caught on video with the seat partly concealed under his coat. He was later photographed with the seat strapped to his carry-on suitcase before boarding a plane bound for Charlotte, N.C.
“It was definitely a valuable experience to go back and watch Nick and what clicked with him and what made him successful a couple years ago,” Pederson said. “Change is good, we didn’t tweak a lot of the offense, but we wanted to make sure we had plays and concepts with the game plan so he was comfortable in executing.
“It was just a matter of him spending time with the guys. It was going to take repetition in practice. We knew in the building we would be OK with him. He just needed time.”
When Eagles players spoke about Foles’ performance in the playoffs all the way through Super Bowl 52, there was little talk of Wentz. Teammates are funny when it comes to rallying around quarterbacks — they tend to gravitate to the guy who’s leading and getting the job done in the moment.
To understand the two Bills, you have to go back to where it began for both: the swamps of New Jersey. That’s what ESPN Films and Rodgers smartly did by taping the interview inside the Giants locker room at MetLife Stadium. It took Rodgers three years to get the two legends together in one place. The only time the stone-faced Belichick chokes up is when he muses about his early days with the Giants, riding the stationary bike on Saturday mornings and breaking down game film.
Then coaching at Army, Parcells first met a teenage Belichick through his father, Steve, a longtime coach and scout for Navy. We learn how Parcells recruited a green Belichick and quickly made the bright young assistant his “go-to” guy. But the youthful special teams coach — called “Doom” for his surly demeanor — was “disregarded” by players because he didn’t look like an athlete. Eventually, though, Belichick earns the begrudging respect of one of the greatest to ever play the game: Lawrence Taylor.
“I cannot remember a game where we weren’t mentally prepared,” L.T. recalls. “He did prove to me that he knew what he was doing to the point where I became a Bill Belichick fan.”
